TRAVEL BLOG COMMUNITY
Let’s build communitY
We believe no matter who you are, where you’re from, who you love or who you worship – we all belong. The world is more beautiful the more you accept.”
– #weaccept, Airbnb
The above Airbnb advertisement aired this past Sunday on the largest screen available in the United States. It was played during the National Football League’s coverage of the Superbowl championship. And whether or not you are a fan of American football has nothing to do with the message that Airbnb continues to passionately endorse – that the world is a better place when we accept that our differences are part of what make us beautiful.
Let’s share beautiful.
FAVORITES WEEK #16
There were so many beautiful posts linked up by our Faraway Files community last week. Missed them? Don’t worry – click here to catch up over on cohost Clare’s Suitcases and Sandcastles blog.
My personal favorites brought both beauty and a smile. I loved this post from Keri at Ladies What Travel about the fun street art in the George Town neighborhood of Penang, Malaysia. I adore how real objects are incorporated into the murals and create a true sense of joie de vivre for the area and its visitors. Hold on tight – it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
Jonny from The Adventures of Daisy the Bus shared his family’s outing to the Open Air Museum near Amsterdam in The Netherlands. I adore the pure wonder on his daughter’s face as she learned to knit under the watchful attention of this volunteer Dutch gramma. In Denmark – we call that hygge.
Jumping across the channel, we welcomed another Faraway Files newcomer – Jo from Where Jo Goes. I loved her post about lovely little Lacock in Wiltshire, England. Listen to me – like I know where Wiltshire is! Guaranteed – I looked it up posthaste after reading of its charm. A classic English village – put on a cuppa and take a look.
And if you prefer your cup with something a little stronger – check out Curious Pixie’s things to do in Vegas to rock your trip. And while Sima can show you where to get a cocktail and how to maneuver a casino – she goes beyond and offers a balanced approach to Sin City with suggestions to see the Grand Canyon as well as the classic neon museum. I’m in love.
Where will you take us this week? Me? I can’t believe that it took me writing a post about why to take your kids to the Caribbean for it to finally snow in Copenhagen! The differences are both beautiful. #Weaccept.

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.

- 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.
