Faraway Files #29

Do you know how many countries you have visited? My tally is 31 and I’m just about to add another 2 to my list!

We are about to head off on a Scandinavian adventure from Norway through Sweden and finishing in Denmark. We will travel mostly by boat and by train in the wake of my fellow co host Erin, who has some marvellous posts on how to get around Norway.

Most of our holidays up until now have been very car based, as it is handy for all the kids stuff. So I am excited to use my preferred methods of transport for this trip. One of the trains even has a kids play area. Fantastic!

We are finishing up in Copenhagen – a city I fell in love with last year.

See you on the blog in a couple of weeks. Until then, if you want to follow our Nordic adventures, I will be posting updates on Instagram stories

Thanks once more for all the wonderful posts on our last Faraway Files link up. I love learning about new places and looking at familiar places with a fresh perspective and we always find that in abundance as the week’s link up posts roll in. I was inspired by:

✪ the absolutely delicious and fun food tour of Porto share by Jo. I am now so inspired to take my kids on one of my favourite travel experiences

✪ I was inspired by Lorna from The Painted Globe’s list of 10 wonderful things to do in England’s north east. This is an area that is not well known even within the UK and one I would love to discover more of. It was great input into our travel plans for next year

✪ Agriturismo’s are a uniquely Italian style of accommodation that I think are brilliant. Annabel’s post  tells you her reasons why they are such a great place to stay

Verde grotto Capri

Have you ever wanted to take a boat ride around Capri and explore it’s natural wonders? My Faraway Files post this week explores the highlights of a Capri boat tour as well as some tips on finding the best one.  We didn’t see it but I got the low down from our skipper on the best times to see the famous Blue Grotto!

About Faraway Files

Faraway Files is a weekly travel link up hosted by Katy from Untold Morsels, Erin from Oregon Girl around the World and Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles.

Faraway Files is a weekly file of the best travel ideas on the web. We want to dream of faraway places, make new travel plans and share our travel secrets. Inspire us to travel to new places or revisit a place we thought we knew. We know that you can feel faraway even when you’re close to home so share your experiences of travels near and far wherever you are in the world.

We’d love you to join us in building a supportive 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 favourites and highlight them on our blogs and social media channels using #FarawayFiles.

How it works

✪ The link up will go live every Thursday at 8am, UK time, until midnight on Friday. It will alternate between Untold Morsels, Suitcases and Sandcastles and Oregon Girl Around the World.

✪ This week Erin from Oregon Girl Around the World hosts the link up so head over to her Faraway Files post to join in. Link up one travel-related post and add the Faraway Files badge available on Oregon Girl Around the World to your blog or link back to the hosts.

✪ Link ups work best if everyone shares so please comment on all three of the hosts’ posts and at least one other.
