Faraway Files #2

Greetings from Washington D.C. for this week’s edition of Faraway Files. Back stateside to celebrate the life of my aunt with a wonderfully large and loving extended family. Feeling a little faraway myself this morning.

This week’s community post will be short and sweet and grateful. Grateful for the engagement in this new collaborative travel blog link up. Faraway Files. We had nearly 20 posts last week and look forward to your travel inspiration coming this week. Make us swoon! Send our imaginations soaring or take us back to one of your favorites.

A few of the ooh and aaah worthy posts from our inagural link up came from:

Welcome to Faraway Files, the new travel link up hosted by Katy from Untold Morsels, Katy from Untold Morsels, Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles and myself at Oregon Girl around the World

This is the place to link up your travel posts every Thursday. We want to make Faraway Files a great resource for all of us and create a weekly file of the best travel ideas on the web. We want to dream of faraway places, to make new travel plans and share our travel secrets. Inspire us to travel to places we’ve never considered before or revisit a place we thought we knew. We know that you can feel faraway even when you’re close to home so share your experiences of travels near and far wherever you are in the world.

We’d love you to join us in building a really supportive community who will inspire us all and share each other’s posts. All three of us will try to read and comment on every post and we’ll share them on social media too. Each week we’ll choose our favourites and highlight them on our blogs.

How it works:

The link up will go live every Thursday at 8am, UK time, until midnight on Friday. It will alternate between Oregon Girl around the World, Suitcases and Sandcastles and Untold Morsels. This week’s link up is over at Suitcases and Sandcastles.

Link up one travel-related post and add the Faraway Files badge onto the post or your blog (code below) or link back to the hosts.

Link ups work best if everyone shares so please comment on all three of the hosts’ posts and at least one other.

Tweet us your posts (@suitandsand, @UntoldMorsels, @oregongirlworld) using the hashtag #FarawayFiles and we’ll retweet to our followers.

We’ll be sharing all our favourite posts on our social media channels using #FarawayFiles.

We’ll be adding your posts to our Faraway Files Pinterest board so do ask if you’d like to join us there.

Love Instagram? Share your favourite photos from your posts with us, tagging #FarawayFiles and we’ll add our favourites to our Faraway Files Instagram feed.
