Can you believe that it is actually mid November? It seems like yesterday that we were ringing in 2017. Now we are closing in on getting the festivities going to start 2018. Father Time surely has become a speed demon hasn’t he!?

Welcome to Fly Away Friday #38!

We’re so happy you’re joining us! Grab a cup of coffee, tea or wine (we’re not judging!) and enjoy!
Fly Away Friday is a link-up community for travel related blog posts. Hosted by Janine from Fill My Passport and Kana from Life in Wanderlust; we wanted to create and cultivate a supportive community of travellers. Every other Friday at 9:00AM PST, the Fly Away Friday link-up will open for everyone to share their posts all weekend long until Sunday at 11:59PM PST.

A Note From Janine:

I cannot believe Christmas is around the corner. Already started the planning here and cannot wait to see all the festivities. Toronto puts on a great display with markets, shows, foods, and much more. This year a bucket list dream is coming true as well – hubby and I are heading to NYC for 4 amazing days in December. I honestly have dreamed of seeing the tree at Rockefeller Centre my whole life. Such a thrill. And what perfect timing! My visit aligns with the opening of the new Tiffany’s cafe so I can literally have Breakfast at Tiffany’s!


Christmas Guest Post Opportunity: Traveller Adult Letters to Santa – Running from Nov 20-Dec 24.
Looking for letters to Santa from adult travellers. Must be in letter format like you are literally writing a letter to him. Ask for things on your bucket list, new travel gear, less painful layovers etc. or ask for something deeper like more food or clean water for a place that you visited that needs help. I will remove any requests that involve the following: Political agendas, death requests, anything to do with war or naming specific groups (asking for peace is okay!), or anything involving a vote.
300 words minimum! Links back to your blog and one social handle included. Send through photos of the place you are asking for (either the deeper wish or bucket list trip), the item you want (though I may use an affiliate link), or I can use stock. A bio pic of you the letter writer is also requested so Santa can cross check to see if you are on the naughty list 😉
