Welcome to Faraway Files

Welcome to Faraway Files

Today it is my great pleasure to introduce you to a new collection of travel posts to help inspire and inform your upcoming adventures. I have joined forces with two incredible bloggers that I admire and respect for their commitment to beautiful and informative writing and their ongoing quest to discover the unique amongst the commonplace.

Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles is an English travel writer whose work has featured in the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph. Her award-winning blog focuses on ideas and inspiration for making travel and culture fun for families.

American expat Erin from Oregon Girl Around the World is currently living in Copenhagen from where she blogs about life in the Danish capital and her family of five’s adventures in Europe and beyond.

We are all looking forward to sharing our passion for travel with you and learning about all the possibilities for adventure this big wide world offers.

Faraway Files

Welcome to Faraway Files, a travel link up hosted by Katy from Untold Morsels, Erin from Oregon Girl around the World and Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles.

This is the place to link up your travel posts every Thursday. 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 and Oregon Girl Around the World.

✪ Link up one travel-related post and add the Faraway Files badge onto the post or your blog (code below) or link back to the hosts.

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

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

    We’ve only just begun our adventures as travel bloggers and are so new that we don’t really understand how link-ups work. If anyone could take the time to explain it to us, it sounds like something that we would be interested in!

    Thank you so much!

      Hi there – it’s quite straightforward. You just add your link in during the time period allotted and comment and share some of the other posts linked up. If you want to learn about creating your own link up Melyssa Griffin has some great tips. Email me if you need some more info. Thanks for stopping by!

        Alright! I will look into how to create a link up! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it!
