FORTY-TWO WEEKS OF SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

If you are at all like me, you believe that an important aspect of travel is tasting what a new culture or destination can offer. Beyond a meal out, I love perusing the local market to see what’s for sale. I love finding products and purveyors of those different foods and flavors that make a place unique.

Here in Denmark, there is a strong pride of their food culture. From the delicious, but humble rye bread to New Nordic Michelin starred restaurants, Danes can do it all. This week I went along on a Copenhagen food tour and discovered a few new flavors and shops around town. I learned a ton from a Danish cheesemonger who has changed my opinion about the state of Denmark’s cheese. The blue may be rotten, but it’s truly delicious!

And around the world, if you’re in Oregon anytime in summer, the flavors there have to include fresh berries straight from the vine. I’m reminiscing about a fab evening last summer and sharing a post about berry picking with music and mountains this week.

What is a special dish or spice or food that is famous where you’re from? I’d love to know! Please comment and share below.

But before we get to the link up, I want to share my favorites from last week. There were so many great posts and we appreciate all who shared theirs!

Faraway Files Favorites Week #41

Ruth from Tanama Tales took me back to our time in Philadelphia on the East Coast of the U.S.A. We lived there for two years and loved the Reading Terminal Market that she highlighted this week. I couldn’t believe when she shared a picture of my favorite cheese shop there, bringing back many happy and tasty memories!

Carolyn from Absolutely Fabulous found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that is Yosemite National Park. A first-time visit for her family, she offers great tips and beautiful pics from this stunning place.

FORTY-ONE WEEKS OF SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Hej from Copenhagen travel peeps! Where you been lately? On a beach above the Arctic Circle? Oh that was me! I went seeking mountains and found some of the most beautiful white sugar fine sandy beaches I’ve ever been on. I loved the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway. And while we may have discovered their charms at the peak of the season, there is a reason that they are so popular to visit in summer. I’m sharing 8 of those reasons for Faraway Files Travel Blog Community Link up today.

Faraway Files Favorites Week #40

Trish from Mums Gone To literally made me snort out loud recanting a walk about with her husband in his fancy new Bear Gryll’s adventure pants. Assuming the survivalist’s penchant for drama, a seemingly simple hike becomes full of surprise.

Christine from The Journey of Christine tells how to get lost in Venice. Take that left turn, wander down that street. And if her pictures don’t tempt you to visit Venice, I’m not sure anything will!

Annette of A French Collection shared her personal story of buying a holiday home in France from her native Australia. Personal and powerful, I love the connection with her new neighbors around the world!

Today I’m sharing the first of many posts from our recent Northern Norway trip. My heart is full of nature and wonder and awe and I have so much to show you. Ten days above the Arctic Circle in summer. It was epic. All of it. But one of my favorite experiences was the day we drove to see the world’s strongest maelstrom. Only 30km outside of the darling town Bodø, here you can witness 400 million cubic meters of churning, swirling and surging aqua awesomeness. You really should Visit Bodø and see Saltstraumen. Let me show you why.
