Faraway Files #5

Do you like art or do you find visiting galleries a bit intimidating? I used to fall into the latter camp but then I started reading about art history and became fascinated. I also realised that you didn’t have to search for meaning in the works of art but could simply appreciate a piece for what it was, or wasn’t. I didn’t have to like it and that was ok.

I suppose that it’s a bit like exploring cities and countries. Even though I’m a positive person there is always something I don’t particularly like or enjoy about a place and that is ok too.

There was so much inspiration in last week’s Faraway Files link up. Hilary took us to the Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland and to places of almost mythical beauty. It is no wonder some of the locations were used in the filming of Game of Thrones.

I loved reading about Trish’s trip to Anglesey in Wales. The tiny island of South Stack with its beautiful lighthouse reminded me of the Great Ocean Road near Melbourne in Australia.

Closer to home I loved reading about how Noemi’s competitive spirit was unleashed on a unique walking tour of London. I was supposed to join that tour but had to pull out to a high-heeled induced injury and I am very sorry I missed it.

This week it’s all about art for me. My post of the week is my list of favourite galleries in London. The city is one of the world’s art capitals and there are so many great art hubs and spaces to explore no matter what type of art interests you. I hope you enjoy reading it and I am looking forward to discovering new places and spaces on this week’s Faraway Files.

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.

    High heeled injury, LOL. It would’ve been really great if I saw you there but we can always see each other whenever we want to. Thanks for the mention. 🙂
