Travelling these days is so different than when I first took my passport for a spin. This is for many reasons but the main one is technology. Back in the 90s, sometimes the only way you could reach people quickly was by telegram. So important news took a little while to get through.
Last week I learnt (within minutes I think!) that some dear friends got engaged on their trip to Morocco. It’s so exciting to be able to hear the news and share in the excitement. I just loved seeing all the congratulations and love for them pour in over Facebook from the four corners of the globe.
Technology has its challenges and it’s always a good idea to switch off once in a while but I’m excited by the endless possibilities it brings like reading about far flung places through this group.
Thanks to all the wonderful posts from last week’s Faraway Files we have even more inspiration to draw on. My favourites from last week:
Sarah’s list of things to do in Girona really helped me out as I have a friend visiting there in the next few weeks. Now I want to go too!
If you want to try a yoga or meditation retreat in Thailand do read Natalie’s honest assessment about how she found her experience.
I loved seeing a different side to Moscow in Kidding Herself’s fascinating post about VDNH (VDNKh) or ‘the Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy’ – so Soviet! Love it.
Of course one of the most important things we did on our recent trip to Sicily, was try as many of the local delicacies as we could. Luckily the fresh grilled seafood and salad were there as healthy main course options because the desserts were absolutely incredible.
My post this week is about the unique Sicilian desserts and sweet treats we tried on our travels. Mmmm cannoli.
