Travel Blog Community
SHARING TRAVEL STORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Hej! That’s Danish for hi. Hoping all is well in your corners of the world. I wanted to say a giant thank you to everyone who has been a part of the Faraway Files travel blog community over the past couple years. November is a month for Thanksgiving where I’m from and I truly appreciate the connections, contacts and supportive community in this group. So to you all – tusind tak! A thousand thanks!
I just returned from a long weekend in Riga, Latvia to attend the Women in Travel Summit hosted by Wanderful. I didn’t know what to expect, but came away inspired and enlightened. I learned about diversity and inclusivity in travel and appreciated the variety of perspectives on each panel. But my biggest take away? That traveling and then writing, blogging and creating travel content is really about one thing. Your thing. And not to compare, stress or worry about anyone else’s well curated life online. Sharing your passion through your words and images will show what makes you unique.
Travel is not your passion. Travel is an avenue to express your passion.” – Lola Akinmade
I also got to do really cool stuff – like walk on a wild Latvian peat bog. I’ll be writing all about it soon. But for now – enjoy the sloshy sounds of treading softly through an ancient mossy wetland. PS – next year’s Women in Travel Summit will be held in Gdansk Poland – October 2020. Find out more here.
FAVORITES FROM FARAWAY FILES #134
Co-host Corey of Fifi + Hop was happy to host last week – a big thank you to everyone who linked up. These were her favorites. Let’s give them a big shoutout! Cheers from here.
First up – in no particular order – was Ladies What Travel’s post about tea time in Bath. Having shared a high tea when Keri came to Copenhagen, I can vouch that she can tell you a thing or two about afternoon tea. This one looks lovely, but don’t drop your pearls perhaps.
It was windmills, Rembrandt and canals with Catherine of Cultural Wednesday. Looks like Leiden is the perfect place for a pretty city break. Thanks Catherine!
Truly Madly Kids offers family friendly things to do and see in Siem Reap that go beyond the famous temples.
And if you haven’t been to Bergen, Norway you really must go. Wandering through Bryggen – so well captured here by Usha of Le Coins de Bobby is a must. Pop over to her post to read more.
This week I’m sharing a historic hunt here in Denmark. Don’t worry it’s only ceremonial, but so very impressive to watch as red-coated riders pound through the UNESCO World Heritage forest north of Copenhagen. Come to Denmark, she said.
