So...Hello and Welcome to my first ever blog! 

I did have a good opening sentence about what this blog will be about, but as always the best ideas come when you’re trying to sleep and you say to yourself, I should write this down! Instead you convince yourself that you will remember it in the morning and stay in the warm, cosy bed and fall asleep. 

Well I think I will start with explaining the name 'Farraway'. As a child I had a love for graphic design and had a dream to have my own design company called 'Farraway Designs'. Farr is my family's name and my dad had a committee boat at our sailing club called 'Too Farr'. The use of our surname gave me the idea to use our name and create another play on words and that's how 'Farraway' was thought of, after many bad ideas! 

Therefore I am creating this blog so I am able to get all my thoughts and ideas down on 'paper' and to share with everyone. 

I hope everyone enjoys the read!

Norwegian Fjords 2015

A while back I said I would post something about the cruise I went on back in June 2015 but alas nothing was posted - sorry!

As I didn't do anything back then, I thought I would write something about it now as I am on a roll...

30 things to do before 30!

So it is my birthday weekend and that means one step closer to the big 30! So I thought that I would make a list of 30 things I would like to do before I hit 30. (FYI I have 3 years). Although remember that numbers do not matter and you are only as old as you feel and/or act.

2017 Goals

Happy New Year everyone! 

As it is already the second day of 2017, I thought I better start to think about what I want to get out of this year. I am determined to make something of this blog and myself in the next 12 months!

2017 is starting off with another huge change in my life, but a happier one to last year. My husband is starting a new job, which is going to have him away from home up to 12 weeks at a time. This is going to be a massive adjustment for me, and of course him, because I am so used to having him around and someone in the house. Also I will miss him!
