Faraway Files 56

G’day from Australia!

We finally made it to Melbourne after adventures in Italy and Spain and a day of high touristing in London. It’s been a jam packed travel year and I have so many stories and information to share. I almost don’t know where to begin.

But first some updates from Faraway Files.

As most of you know, we have made a few changes to our Faraway Files hosting group welcoming Corey from Fifi+Hop and Hilary from HilaryStyle as hosts. I have long admired their writing and photography skills as well as their generous contributions to other bloggers. And they both have me thinking that a trip to the USA is long overdue. They have hit the ground running while I’ve been gallivanting and are already wonderful hosts.

Thanks to Erin, Hilary, Clare and Corey for your fantastic hosting over the past few weeks. It’s so exciting to see our little community prosper and grow.


Thanks to everyone who joined our Faraway Files link up last week hosted by Clare and Corey. My favourites were a mix of stories, ideas and gastronomy:

We had just left Seville and the tastes were barely from my lips as I read Vicky’s post on the best places to eat in that city. She made all my tapas memories flood back.

If you haven’t read Cathy’s brilliant piece on her desert stay in Oman, head over there straight away and prepare to be transfixed.

Easter is a great time to travel in southern Europe. If you are looking for some ideas on where to catch some spring sunshine in that part of the world, Annabel has done all the hard work for you.


Alhambra gardens

It was a long held dream to visit the Alhambra in Granada and I finally made it come true earlier this month. What an incredible site full of beauty, wonder and history. I was not disappointed.

My Faraway Files post this week includes some of the 1000s of photos I took and information on how to visit Spain’s beautiful Moorish monument – the Alhambra.


About Faraway Files

Faraway Files is a weekly travel link up hosted by Katy from Untold Morsels, Erin from Oregon Girl around the World, Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles, Corey from Fifi+Hop and Hilary from HilaryStyle

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.


How it works

✪ The link up will go live every Thursday at 8am, UK time, until midnight on Friday. It will alternate between Untold Morsels, Suitcases and Sandcastles, Oregon Girl Around the World, HilaryStyle and FiFi+Hop.

✪ This week I’m hosting the link up on Untold Morsels so link up a travel-related post and add the Faraway Files badge available below to your blog or link back to the hosts.

✪ Link ups work best if everyone shares so please comment on the hosts’ posts and at least one other.

✪ Tweet us your posts @suitandsand, @UntoldMorsels, @oregongirlworld, @fifiandhop and @hilarystyleme using the hashtag #FarawayFiles and we’ll retweet to our followers

    Thank you! Was one of the highlights of our stay, lovely to hear it was one of your favourites. Looking forward to reading your Alhambra post, another bucket list stop which lives up to its billing. And back to link soon with tales of my next adventure…

    So happy to hear that you enjoyed the Alhambra; it was one of my favourites as well. I don’t remember if I ate at any of the places that Vicky mentioned. I’ve had more luck finding tapas than paella outside of Spain but each brings back memories of my time in the country.
