Faraway Files #11

TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY 

It’s nearly Christmas and whether you celebrate or not, the coming end of the year is a normal time for reflection and gratefulness. Do you give gifts? Did you receive gifts? Would you ever give the gift of travel? Have you bought gifts while traveling? Yes. Yes. Yes. And YES. For me anyway.

The travel blog community Faraway Files has been a gift to me. Not only in the meeting of interesting and far flung writers, explorers and photographers (in person and online). But in being fodder for my wishlist. OH! I want to see THAT! Things I never even knew were out there. It has been such an eye-opener for me. And I LOVE that.

These posts were gifts in different ways, come open one with me.

Corey of Fifi + Hop proves to us that there is more to NYC than Manhattan. Check out the diversity that a visit to another of the 5 burroughs can give. The Bronx has so much to offer for families – from zoos to baseball to botanical gardens. Thanks for sharing Corey!

And would you ever give yourself the gift of travel? How about an African Safari? Yes please! But they are way too expensive. Not if you prioritize and negotiate and stick to your budget. Heather at Wanderlust Wayfarer shows you how.

Me? I’m offering you the gift of a little Scandinavian hygge – time to cozy up with this wintery mix of Scandi music.
Faraway Files will be taking a little break for the holidays to enjoy time with our families, catch up on some blogs and for me – hygge. Raising a glass of gløgg to you and yours – wherever you may be. We’ll be back Thursday January 5th, 2017. Wow. That’s crazy!
