Who are the friendliest people you have met on your travels?
In Vietnam I felt so welcome as the people were incredibly kind and generous. I did a home stay on that trip and was truly humbled by the warmth the family extended to me. Even with so many differences between us it was easy to find common ground. We laughed about cooking, singing and mopeds.
Of course I love Italy and Italians and always feel welcome in their country. On my recent trip to Brescia I met some amazing people who were genuinely interested in why I was visiting their region. People stopped us on the train when they heard my accent to give us advice about the best places to go. They were great tips too.
And interacting with everyone on the link up here is special to me too. I feel I know some of you so well just through reading your posts each week. Thanks to all of you who participate and reciprocate. It means the world to Clare, Erin and I.
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. The posts I enjoyed last week were:
✪ reminiscing about the days I sometimes flew business class – oh the luxury – thanks Connie!
✪ Chiera’s Broadway extravaganza got me inspired to book some theatre tickets
✪ Beach, history, cute cafes and a windmill. Everything seems in order for a great time on Kos – thanks Cathy
About Faraway Files
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.
