SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Hej from Copenhagen! Calling all travelers today. Take me somewhere far away. Last week was our fall break and we stayed right here in Denmark. Lucky for us it was terribly beautiful with colorful fall foliage in fine form and sunny, sunny blue skies. This week? Not so much. Back to our regularly scheduled Danish fall for now. But it’s ok because I’ve been hoarding up color like a squirrel for winter. And winter is coming. I can feel it. So today, let’s get inspired. Tell us where you’ve been and what to put on our list. It’s travel blog link up time.


FAVORITES FROM FARAWAY FILES #96

Thank you to everyone who connected and engaged and linked up last week. Based on favorites from co-host Hilary of Hilary Style, I already have a few places to put on my list. All of these three look simply dreamy. Shout out to the following bloggers:

Janis and Gary of Our World for You shared this gorgeous and charming French city Villefranche-sur-Mer. The Côte D’Azur is calling, I’d love to answer!

Pop over and peruse the beauty of Budapest. Click on this gorgeous photo from Sharon of Exploring our World. It definitely puts Budapest back on the top of my wishlist again.

Last, but definitely not least – Portugal is pretty as a picture in The Pamplemousse Papers post. Thanks Caity – I’m smitten with this vintage VW. Reminds me of my first car! (It was a 1971 VW bug, beige, not blue. But that’s cool.)

And because one vintage beetle deserves another, I just had to post my baby blue VW bug found on the streets of 1974 Denmark. Part of the recreated open-air history museum called Den Gamle By in Aarhus where you can get down, get down learning about Danish life from days gone by. Walk back in time from the 1970’s to the 1570’s.

Happy Fall Y’all! It has definitely turned a corner here in Copenhagen. The leaves are changing and there is a crispness in the air. I love it. It’s one of my favorite times of year, especially if there are some sunny blue skies to soak up still. Not always a guarantee in Denmark!

So what have you been up to? Or where have you been up to? This Faraway Files Travel Blog Community spans the globe. And I love learning about little corners. It’s time to link up and share a new where!

SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Welcome back travel people! It’s been an epic summer here in Denmark. But I can already feel the seasonal tide of autumn daring to descend. And I’m ok with that. Fall is fantastisk here. How about you? Holding fast to the last bits of summer? Don’t get me wrong. I will take as many sunny bluebird days as Denmark affords me, but I was ready for the cooler temperatures this year. Two weeks in Isreal was more than enough warm for this Northerner. Although take me back to that hummus! Where have you been exploring? Time to share. Faraway Files travel blog community link up is open again. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to.


FAVORITES FROM FARAWAY FILES #88

But first – a shout out to my favorites from our last linkup at the beginning of August.

If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of “meeting” or reading any of Mark and Paul’s posts over at Anywhere We Roam, do so immediately. Always gorgeous photos of unique places, like this piece about hiking off the beaten path in Iceland’s geothermal mountains. Great tips on how to get there and what you will exclaim once reaching the summit.

Danielle from the blog No Longer Native shared a few insider tips as a local in Madrid where the big art museums like the Prado and Sofia Reina can at times be overwhelming, especially during peak tourism season. She recommends trying these smaller art galleries and experiences when in the capital of Spain.

Gary and Janis of Our World For You blog take some pretty epic road trips. This one that takes you through little coastal towns along the Portuguese coast north of Lisbon looks so amazingly lovely. I love the colorful buildings and boats and beautiful beaches.

This week I’m sharing a few places to find a vista with a view here in Copenhagen. This place is flat. Which is great for bikes, but not so great for seeing the city from above. Lucky for you, there are many a tower to step inside!
