Hej! That’s “Hi” in Danish – but you know that already if you follow my co-host Erin’s blog.

I’m freshly back from our Scandinavian adventure that started in beautiful Bergen (pictured above)and ended in wonderful Copenhagen. Erin gave us a little bike tour of her adopted city during which we experienced brunch Danish style and visited the park she recommended in my best parks and playgrounds of Europe post. And it was indeed a fantastic park and playground. Thanks Erin!

Not just for kids either. There was a tuk tuk coffee cart. Amazing!

Thanks to everyone who joined our Faraway Files link up over past 2 weeks. I am always thrilled to read your posts, discover new destinations and ideas for our trips. My favourites over the past two weeks were:

Hilary’s huge list of things to do in the City of Angels – Los Angeles. I’ve been to LA several times and one of my favourite things to do – visit the Getty Museum – was on the list.

A bit closer to home, Trish reminded me of our visit last year to Portsmouth’s Historic Ship Yard and the interactive Mary Rose experience. You really feel like you are on board the Tudor warship.

And I loved peeking into a little corner of France – Roscoff – with Little Ladies Big World.

Driving in Italy - car rental, driving tips and road rules


One of the best ways to explore beyond the usual tourist paths in Italy is to take a road trip. But let’s face it, the Italians have a certain reputation when it comes to driving.

In fact, I know many people who are just too scared to drive there because of it. But actually, if you understand a few key facts about Italian road rules and culture then you should have the confidence to take to the open road.

This week I am sharing my guide to driving in Italy.

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 I’m hosting the link up on Untold Morsels so link up a travel-related post and add the Faraway Files badge available below to your blog or link back to the hosts.
