The thing I find most interesting in travel is not the tourist sites, or even the historical sites. What I love most about visiting other places is finding out what people who live there love about where they live.
I’d love to do nothing but travel everywhere – around the world to the cities you all call home. But when I go there, the thing I want to see is this: What do you love most about living there? Where do you go in your city that makes you glad you live there? It might coincidentally be a site that is interesting to tourists but it might also be something mundane like a market or park in your park that you find special. Or it may even be a person or people that makes living where you are a joy.
My readers already know where I would take you. It would be to a library. There are so many great free libraries in this city that I feel they are literally a national treasure.
So this week’s challenge is this: What would you show me about where you live that makes you glad you live there? Show me in a photo, write about it in text, draw it, create a poem about it. Any way you want to express it is fine, just show me what you love.
- Tag your post with the tag: FridayFavourites
- Link to this page to create a pingback (it may take bit of time for me to approve the pingbacks – especially if you live in a timezone where you’re wide awake while I’m asleep)
- If you can’t make a pingback or would prefer to provide a link as a comment, by all means, leave a comment with a link below.

Love this idea! Wondering how in the world I had missed this. Will try to join in this week but if not, I’ll all in for next Friday. 😉
Yay! Looking forward to it!
I have never done a challenge but would like to. You are the first person I feel brave enough to ask how to do it. Can you please write it here or in an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most things I have learned to do with WordPress I have learned from other users. Thanks.
I’m so glad to hear that. Yes. I’d be happy to tell you how. I’ll email you now.
So excited for that library post! It looks like a beautiful one. Also, love this idea for a tag. 🙂
