Faraway Files #113

Welcome back to another edition of Faraway Files on this last day of February, which means Spring is coming soon!

I am not a winter person, so this year we decided to switch things up and go to the Caribbean – and how therapeutic it was! We just returned from Turks and Caicos, which was so dreamy and perfect for this time of year..can’t wait to write my post on it.

Right before that, I finally met Clare with Suitcases and Sandcastles  ,who was visiting New York with her family. We decided to have a day out in Greenwich Village and had so much fun. You can read all about things to do in Greenwich Village in winter in my post linked up below.

Onto favorites from last week! Hilary says hers were:

Exploring by Bicycle – Exploring our World
The Best Things to do in Cambria – Bright Lights of America
Congratulations everyone!


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

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, to make new travel plans and share our travel secrets. Inspire us to travel to places we’ve never considered before 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 love our link up and the supportive community we’ve created. If you join in, please reciprocate and comment on the hosts’ posts as well as any others that take your eye. If we see a pattern of people not joining in, we have decided that it’s fairest to all of us to remove the links of those posters.

So let’s inspire and share each other’s posts. We’ll 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.

  • 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.
  • 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’s link up is with me (see below).
  • Link ups work best if everyone shares so please comment on all of the current hosts’ posts and at least one other.
  • Tweet us your posts (@fifiandhop, @suitandsand, @oregongirlworld, @Hilarystyleme) using the hashtag #FarawayFiles and we’ll retweet to our followers.
  • Love Instagram? Share your favourite photos from your posts with us, tagging #FarawayFiles and we’ll add our favourites to our Faraway Files Instagram feed.

Check out our Faraway Files Facebook page too.

    I have finally written something after months’ of absence. Hopefully I’d like to say I’m back in the blogging saddle and will be here for a while. Looking forward to reading lots of inspiring travel posts.
