Faraway Files #18

TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY

LET’S BUILD COMMUNITY

This week is vinterferie in Denmark; the Danish equivalent of half-term or winter break. We took our tween and teens to the City of Lights for a four-night city break. Paris. Ooh la la. I’m in love that they loved it. As much as I do. J’adore Paris.

And while we haven’t done the complete download of all our collective impressions (as we literally rolled in last night near midnight), I think the number one thing that struck my kids while wandering through Champs de Mars and Montmartre and Le Marais was the diversity that dominates the French capital. What a beautiful place. And maybe because it was Valentine’s Day, but we were feeling the love (most of the time – you do understand that I have teenagers right?). And while we may have been ready to be back in cozy Copenhagen in our own comfy beds, the colors and tastes and sights of Paris will linger on longer.

Did you go somewhere this week? Please share in the comments below – I’d to see how far flung the Faraway Files community flew off to this break. Maybe you’re still there? Oooh – do tell! I’m sharing a little Norwegian train ride from Oslo to the fjords.

FAVORITES WEEK #17

But first – I’d like to show a little love to these posts that caught my eye last link up. Missed them? Don’t worry – you can catch them right here on Oregon Girl Around the World.

Kate at Love From Scotland shared an idyllic get away from it all snuggle in with your favorites kind of place perfect for a Valentine’s respite. All of Kate’s posts about Scotland are gorgeous – but I really want to go to Loch Tay. To this cabin.

From Scotland to sunny California, Cindy from Piccolo Explorer took us to San Diego. From La Jolla to Balboa to Mission Beach and everywhere in between – it is southern California perfection.

Maybe because I was in an all things French mood this week (c’est vrai!) but I loved this charming post about Aubterre-Sur-Dronne by Nell at Pigeon Pair and Me. Save this one for summer.

And finally – Wilbur’s Travels share his continuing list of European capitals ranked from top to bottom. I picked Stockholm from this week’s list as it fika charmed us, as it will you.
