Faraway Files #22

TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY

spring is sprung

Pat my own back. Toot my own horn. I have successfully navigated another Scandinavian vinter. Even armed with all the trappings of some lovely Danish hygge and candles and playlists, by March I am near done with the weather here in Denmark. But right in the nick of time, the sun breaks out and the sky is a brilliant blue. Blooms push up through the earth and everyone is out. Soaking it up.

Moods are lifted. People are patient. And unsolicited smiles are more often returned. Sigh. Ahh. Spring. Each day here in Denmark we garner more light in our pocket. Seriously, come this time of the year the calender packs on the daylight. It feels like a weight being lifted. I will admit on bluebird days, my wanderlust wanes and I am content to stay here. It’s lovely. But the weather in Denmark is fickle. And I look forward to a little virtual escapism from our travel community.
Today, I’m sticking with the spring theme and showing you where to get your bloom on in the Netherlands. I love a parade. Especially when it smells nice!
FAVORITES WEEK #21

My favorite posts from last week share a common thread. They all offer a place or an experience off the tourist track. Doing something beyond what people think you are supposed to do in a certain destination. I love this.

Let’s start in Morocco. A virtual high five and super warm welcome to our 100th blogger linking with Faraway Files! Woot woot! Seriously – that is cool. Velkommen Milly! That’s welcome in Danish. But, you probably figured that out. Milly shared her adventure surfing with camels in Morocco. Oh sorry, surfing at a beach where there are camels. Either, amazing photography and honest description will have you wondering if you can do it too.

And Allison from Becoming a Traveling Family showed us that there is more to the state of Illinois than the mega-opolis of Chicago. Getting outside and exploring a little fresh air and history.

Babies on safari? Baby wildebeests that is! Lillian from The Smalls Abroad shared why you should choose Madikwe Game Preserve in South Africa for your safari adventure. And while safaris may not be so unique when visiting South Africa, Madikwe is not the mainstream choice. I’m in. Sign me up.

And finally, Sharon from Exploring Our World takes us on a bike tour in the town of Versailles. Living in Copenhagen, we love our bikes. And I know I’d love that French food market. Thanks for sharing!
