Faraway Files #27

TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY

Twenty-seven weeks of Sharing travel stories around the world

It is getting green again in Copenhagen. And I am grateful. It’s a great time to visit the Danish capital. Get outside. And while I’m loving the blue skies of late, I have been actively working on getting away. Oh the irony.

Summer plans are set and I am beyond psyched. Stay tuned for a scandi bonanza, with trips booked to the Danish island of Bornholm, southern Sweden and wait for it… northern Norway! We’re headed to the Lofoten Islands and the land of the midnight sun for our twentieth wedding anniversary this July. I’m elated!

And while I’ve been planning, I’ve been processing too. And I have a question for you. How much do you prioritize sustainable options when you travel? And what does that even mean for you? Do you look for eco-friendly lodging? Or organic food? Do you seek out activities that give back to the local economy? Is animal safety and treatment important to you? I’d love to know. Don’t touch that dial. A green travel series is coming up soon.

But first, let’s go far away.

FAVORITES WEEK #26

I picked these posts for different reasons, but all of my faves from last week showed me something new. New perspectives, fresh takes on a place. Some places I never even knew I needed to know. But this is what is #FarawayFiles is for. I love it. Let’s see some.

Juliette from Snorkels to Snow took us to see the cheeky monkeys of northern Japan. Part national geographic, part playground – I was shocked to learn how up close and personal you can get to the action.

Do you know the tiny island nation of Cape Verde? I will admit this was a new one for me. Cathy of Mummy Travels shares the joy and truth of this colorful and interesting country. Lemon sharks and salt swims and seafood to stun you.

Catherine from Cultural Wednesdays takes us through her favorite book shops in London. I love the diversity of her choices and am smitten with the whole idea of a used bookstore on a BOAT! That boat rocks.

And lastly, but not leastly, Lori from Caliglobetrotter loved Lucerne. Switzerland. You will soon swoon when you see how charming it is through her lens.
