Faraway Files #33

I had an emotional return to Italy last week. I went back to the place where I first started my Italian adventures over 20 years ago – beautiful Lake Garda.

This picture is from the fairytale castle fort town of Sirmione on the lake’s shores. It’s quite the tourist mecca these days as you can imagine but just a few kilometres from here you will find cities full of historical treasures and a bounty of local produce to make your mouth water.

Did I mention the incredible wine? Stay tuned in the coming weeks for my discoveries in beautiful Brescia.

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:

Cursing is an artform to some people (myself included) – I loved Urska’s lesson on swearing in Slovenian

Our new member Sam and I share a love of walking tours. Especially this special walking tour of Camden

I’d love to visit the fish market in Grand Bay in Mauritius after reading Wandering Expat Family‘s post


Osterfjorden - Norwegian fjord cruise

Visiting Norway was a long-held dream of mine and it finally came true this year. We spent 5 days in the fjords region near Bergen and Fläm and loved every second of it. During our trip I became obsessed with seeing the fjords from as many angles as I could so this week’s post is dedicated to the different ways you can see the fjords in Norway.

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.
