Faraway Files #43

Today I’m headed off on an adventure. To a place in England that I have never been before.

I like to think I’m a bit of an explorer and enjoy finding places that are slightly unusual. This place fits the bill.

Sure I have heard of this town but I don’t know too much about it so I’m taking my own advice and joining a local guide for a tour of this market town to the north of London. I’ll also be sampling some great local food and checking out the boutiques and shops in the area.

Can you guess where it is? 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 spots with a fresh perspective. We always find that in abundance as the week’s link up posts roll in. The posts I enjoyed last week were:

✪ Aren’t puffins the cutest birds you ever saw? Bryna caught one in full flight on camera – it’s all in her post about Elliston Newfoundland

✪ Visiting Poland has been a long held dream since my favourite uni lecturer told me I must go. Keri discovered Lublin and it sounds amazing!

✪ Carcassonne was always one of my favourite destinations and then Annette went and covered yet more magic in south west France – the Five Sons of Carcassonne!

I adore history and if I look back on all the places I have visited I think The Valley of the Temples in Sicily is perhaps the most impressive. Some of these monuments remain virtually intact and in the same state as when they were built 2,500 years ago. Isn’t that incredible?
My post for this week is all about the inspiring Valle dei Templi in Sicily and some tips on visiting the site as the online resources were pretty bare. Hope you enjoy it.

    Although some might think it ruins the view, I love sightseeing in the mist. It makes things look magical. Not sure if that was mist or haze or what in your photo, but it does look magical.

      Thanks Marina, we are just back from Lake Bled which was covered in mist when we were there. At first I was devastated – no blue sky photos but the mist certainly adds a certain mystery
