Faraway Files #65

Its time for another edition of Faraway Files, and I don’t know about you, but I could use some inspiration. It’s that time of the year when the winter holidays are starting to feel like a distant memory, spring break is still a month off (still not sure what we’re doing), and don’t even get me started about summer, which seems so far in the future it’s almost out of reach.

The Real 100 Aker Wood aka Ashdown Forest

If I think about what really inspired my love of travel the answer would be most definitely be books. I’ve always loved reading about faraway places and wondered what it would be like to go here or there. For the most part I read fiction, so unfortunately many of those faraway places don’t actually exist in the real world… except when they do!

WB Studios London: The Making of Harry Potter

Habitually early to everything I admit I was late to the Harry Potter party. Not just fashionably late, but disgracefully late… as in I didn’t even consider reading the books until Book 4, The Goblet of Fire, was published.

Faraway Files #61

Happy New Year, and welcome to this week’s edition of Faraway Files. So far, 2018 is off to a great start! Only two weeks into the New Year, and I’ve already got one mini trip under my belt. Plans for two more mini trips are shaping up nicely, but I still haven’t decided on a big ticket destination for 2018. Of course for inspiration I need look no further than Faraway Files and the many adventures shared by all of you from around the world.
