Yah its Friday! For this addition of Fabulous Friday I’m sharing an eclectic list of 5 blog posts that really touched me.
So without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the posts that . . .
. . . made me smile
I think we all have done something that made us think “We Must Be Hilarious to Watch“, right? If you haven’t read this post by AlmostFearless I urge you to do so. I could actually visualize all the back and forth and running! It isn’t that I have had the same situation exactly but I have experienced being on the wrong platform for a train and I have traveled with children. At a minimum, we can all relate to being late for a plane (or thinking we would be). The writing style carries you along through the story as you wait for the next misstep to strike! Read it, it will bring a smile to your face 🙂
. . . made me hungry
Ayngelina from Bacon is Magic published a post titled Learning to cook like a Porteño. First off, just the name of her blog makes me hungry. I love me some bacon! But reading this post and gazing at the amazing foods they cooked during their cooking lesson definitely sent my tummy to a rumblin. Yum, who could pass up empanadas or that amazing stew called Locro? I couldn’t, could you? Oh gosh I’m hungry again.
. . . had the best picture
Petra Jordan, The Lost City by Day from Canada’s Adventure Couple is a jaw dropping vision of perfection in the desert! In all honesty, I have never given Jordan much thought but after seeing these amazing pictures it is a destination that is going on my list! Amazing just doesn’t seem to do these pictures justice but they are just that – amazing. I can only imagine how breath taking Petra is in person! If you like great photography, you won’t be disappointed.
. . . was about foods I definitely won’t eat
I don’t really think I am a picky eater until I travel and especially in France or when I am reading blog posts like Strange Foods from Around the World by Freshroads. Surströmming, Fried Tarantula or Hákarl are just a few of the foods detailed in the post. What I want to know is, who eats this stuff? For a stomach turning adventure in food, check this post out! Trust me, you won’t leave hungry.
. . . made me laugh and feel better about myself!
Last week European Travelista posted a blog, Mystery Picture Take 2!, containing a photograph I had taken a few years ago but couldn’t remember what is was of. I received a lot of comments regarding my plea for help and Marilyn Terrell of Intelligent Travel – National Geographic was able to set me straight! The picture is of Villa Arnaga in Aquitaine region of France, which is on the Atlantic coast.
But this wasn’t the comment that made me laugh! Nancie of Budget Travelers Sandbox added “Laughing here……………if I had a dollar for every time I can’t recognize a place in a photo I’d be a millionaire.” This really made me laugh 🙂 By itself this doesn’t seem all that funny but for some reason it really tickled me and confirmed that I was not the only person who had this affliction! Thanks Nancie.
Well that’s it for this edition of Fabulous Friday!
