Faraway Files #15

TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY

HEJ! From Oregon this week.

Yes. You heard me. Oregon Girl was in Oregon this week. It has been awesome. A quick celebration of a with a friend for her 40th and a check in with family was just what January needed.

Faraway Files is a quick one for me this week – around the world and back, prioritizing time with my peeps.

A heartfelt thank you for those who linked up last week. We had lots of great posts. The following though, were my faves.

FAVORITES WEEK #14

Chiera from Young and Undecided blog has started a fabulous new series on her blog called “Women who Wander,” encouraging women to seek out solo travel. Empowering and inspiring, I applaud and support this idea and hope to see more from other women around the world.

And lastly, Phoebe from Lou Messugo helps remind us that when it feels like the world has left us lemons, we might as well make them into awesome displays! Check out the Lemon Festival in the south of France. I love this Viking ship made of citrus. Of course I do! You knew I would right?

    Everyone should have more lemons in their life: makes everything taste better and just love that bright lemon sunshine colour. Happy homecoming 🙂

  2. Thank you for featuring our EcoVillage visit. The EcoVillage was a great project to support the local community while educating children, hope we can get more people to know about it! I really love the Lemon Festival too.. It’s so going into my bucket list.

      I think it is such a great idea – especially for kids who live in big cities and don’t have access to seeing how things grow or how things are produced. Thanks for sharing – Erin
