Are you a foodie traveller? Someone who seeks out new tastes and local dishes on your travels? I definitely am.

For me, the food of a destination takes you right to the soul of a place. Food is not just about eating but about rearing animals, growing crops and cooking techniques. It is how people have nurtured and sustained their families for generations.
Last year we stumbled upon a food festival in Como and enjoyed discovering the food culture of that region. So I was delighted to be invited by Brescia Tourism and the Italian Tourist Board to join them at the 17th annual Slow Food event – Brescia con Gusto – this weekend.
Brescia is in the East Lombardy region which was named European Region of Gastronomy 2017. I’m so looking forward to discovering more about the region and its food culture over the coming days. I’ll be doing some live updates on Instagram and Facebook so stay tuned.

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:

✪ Van’s love for Hamburg. Some people might find it strange to fall in love with a city but I certainly can relate

Maggie Beer is an Australian cooking legend and all round lovely lady. Thanks to Ali for reminding me why

✪ London had another t0ugh week and this post about why they love the UK from Ladies What Travel drew a lot of emotion from me

Bike rental Copenhagen with Donkey Republic

Copenhagen is another city that has a thriving food culture. I wrote about New Nordic cuisine after my visit there last year but this time I wanted to explore another side of Danish culture – cycling.
This week’s Faraway Files post is my guide to biking Copenhagen. It includes a self-guided tour, map and tips on renting and riding bikes in the  Danish capital.
And big thanks to Erin for showing us around.

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.

    Aww thanks for sharing the love – sometimes I think we forget about how much our home country’s have to offer and we just felt it was the right time to give the UK a big old hug! x
