Faraway Files #9

TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY 

It’s official. I’m wanderlusting hard core. Where to next? What’s on the list? It’s a nightly discussion over here in our house. You too? If you haven’t been to Copenhagen in winter, it might be a perfect destination to discover at this time of year. Seriously – come for Christmas. Experience the Jul. Or even just this winter. Denmark does hygge. You’ve heard of it right? It’s delightful. And delicious and all sorts of cozy. We’ll do that. Don’t worry. But we might do something else too. Maybe, a wee excursion. (Hands rubbing in gleeful delight.)

So where are we going for winterferie mom? Winter break. Still pending. I’m still working on it. Trying my best to work out the best deal and still accommodate everyone’s wishes is a delicate balancing act around here. Especially when you have more than one potentially moody, but engaged and energetic (read opinionated) member of your family at the table. I love it. They have wandering wish lists as well. I created this challenge. I encouraged their world view. Where to next? Where would you?

Maybe one of the amazing places from last week’s Faraway Files travel blog linkup. We were taken trekking and hiking and diving on wrecks. Looked for wombats and orangutans and found octopus lollies. Say what? Eeuw? It’s true. We traveled from England to Fiji to Canada and Jordan. In the travel blog collection. Last week’s Faraway Files.

FARAWAY FILES #8 FAVORITES

These are my favorites from last week. If you missed them all – no worries – read here. Plenty of inspiration for far flung experiences to be uncovered.

Feet do Travel showed us beautiful and wild Borneo, with monkeys and vipers and spiders and apes. But I loved the beautiful scuba diving and finding Nemo on the reef.

Ali of What Ali Sees  reminded us of the joy in taking a simple but gorgeous nature walk at Cradle Mountain in Tasmania. I so wanted a wombat to come out of this hole too! Maybe my favorite pic of the week!

Mummy Travels took us to Lake Inle in Burma and helps with what inspires littles and parents alike. It all looks lovely to me.

And I never knew how much I want to go to Kyoto, Japan until Hilary Style Me shared this post. Sushi and sakura and shinto shrines, I’m sold.

So where to this week. Where should we add to our list? Our wonderful wanderlusting wish list. Or just tell me where to go for winterferie. Seriously I need help – I’m still open!

  1. Hi Erin, I am so glad you enjoyed Borneo – finding Nemo is always my favourite part of diving as well, it always brings a smile to my face (which is a bit difficult when you are underwater with a regulator in your mouth lol). Thank you for the mention and I’m looking forward to reading this week’s posts 🙂

  3. I’m with you- totally wanderlusting. Our last trip was in October and our next one isn’t until February. But we swore off traveling with kids during the holidays because of how busy it is so I’m just throwing myself into Christmas to forget about it, haha.

  4. I’m so happy you enjoyed my Kyoto post! It was really the most magical place and our entire family agrees the best trip ever! Thank you for the mention it means a lot!! I too am seriously wanderlusting this time of year and I’m not sure if #farawayfiles is the cure or the cause, but either way I’m excited to see where it takes me this week!!

  5. There’s so many places, how can you choose? I haven’t been to Prague before, maybe that would be a good Christmassy winter break? Or Germany for the Christmas markets! Copenhagen sounds exciting… but expensive. Wherever you go, have a blast!
