TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY
THIRTY weeks of Sharing travel stories around the world
Can you feel it? The seasons are changing. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are definitely sensing summer coming on. Down under I’m watching fall take its last turns in brilliant colors all over my Instagram feed. If you live where seasons are less defined, how do have other ways of feeling the calendar change? Do holidays help mark the months?
In Denmark today is Kristi Himmelfartsdag and everyone gets a day off from work and school. It took me a long time, I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit, to realize that this was not a special day honoring a famous Dane named Kristi Himmelfart. No. It’s really just the church holiday you may know as Ascension Day. No Dane named Kristi. Or if there is, I haven’t met her yet.
What celebrations are on the calendar in your corner of the world? After thirty weeks of Faraway Files, we learned of a few! The Travel Blog Community has grown and now includes 120 contributors for all over the globe who have shared posts from 75 different countries! That is cool. Here’s how the community map is filling in. Where to this week? Have a festival to celebrate? Share it – we’d love to learn!
I’m going to share a few must do’s when visiting Copenhagen in the summer, but first I’ll high five my faves from last week.
FAVORITES WEEK #29
Please welcome Faraway Files community newcomer Ashley of Born Explorers. Last week she took us glamping in the desert in Oman. The cuddly camels and starry nights sound exquisite. And I appreciate her tip to choose a camp without the pool and air conditioning, sustainable AND less noise pollution from the generators. If you missed her beautiful and informative post, go say hej!
Urska at Slovenian Girl Abroad is filling my need of mountains. It’s flat here in Denmark. But the stunning and epic Swiss landscape is not! Take the tram and the funicular to the top. Or just say funicular. It’s fun!
Christine from The Journey of Christine was lucky enough to secure her 15-minute time slot with the serene and beautiful Last Supper fresco by Renaissance master Leonardo Da Vinci. What may feel like crowd control is true conservation in action. Want to see a little of the beauty of Milan where the Last Supper lives? Trip through Christine’s lovely gallery.
If you’ve been following along, you may know that I believe sustainable travel is truly the way to go. Dave over at Man Vs. Globe ascribes to the eat local, engage local and enjoy local part of traveling green. He takes on a tasty and titillating tour of Vietnamese street food led by a local. I love it! Maybe not the field mice on the menu? But maybe?
Did I whet your appetite? Want to take us to dinner? How about just a post to share? Link up deets below. Tell us where to go!
Cheers from Copenhagen, Erin

WANT TO JOIN IN?
We’d love you to join us in building this supportive and growing community who will inspire and share each other’s posts. All three hosts will try to read and comment on every post and we’ll share them on social media too. Each week we’ll choose our favorites and highlight them on our blogs and social media channels using #FarawayFiles.
HOW IT WORKS:
- Link up one travel-related post and add the Faraway Files badge onto the post or your blog (code below) or link back to the hosts.
- The link up will go live every Thursday at 8 am UK time (9 am, CET) until midnight on Friday. It will alternate between Untold Morsels, Suitcases and Sandcastles, and Oregon Girl around the World.
- Link ups work best if everyone shares so please comment on all three of the hosts’ posts and at least two others.
