Hello and welcome to Monday Escapes 13/03/17. With only 4 weeks to Easter I am so looking forward to a bit of sunshine and getting away to hot and sunny Greece.
Last week was all about celebrating as we found out I had been chosen as a Mark Warner Mum. I am so excited about the year ahead and have been busy reading all the amazing reviews from previous Mark Warner Mums to try and get a short list of where we would like to visit. Today I am sharing my post about my amazing trip to London, where I got to enjoy a wonderful afternoon tea and trip up the Shard.
Monday Escapes is a place to link up your travel memories and is hosted by Karen at Mini Travellers , Lisa at Travel Loving Family (who is hosting today), Clare at Tin Box Traveller and I. We are absolutely delighted to link up with Lonely Planet to offer our number one favourite blog post of the fortnight either a destination guide, or a title from the Lonely Planet Kids range. (See T&C’s below). Just another great reason to link up with Monday Escapes!
Monday Escapes is all about looking back at wonderful, happy travel memories and sharing them with others.
It doesn’t have to be about a trip abroad or even be a written post. If you want to share your favourite snapshots – whether it’s a famous sight, scene, dramatic view or even a favourite family photo, then please feel free to link those up, too. Likewise, posts don’t have to be about holidays or weekends away, they can also include day trips, walks, attractions – any travel experience that you want to share.
What’s in it for you?
The number one thing is you’ll be sharing your fantastic posts with a like-minded community and grabbing some travel inspiration for yourself. As a bonus you have a chance to have your blog post featured on all four, yes four of the hosts’ blogs each fortnight, introducing your blog to even more people. Our number one favourite post of the fortnight will also win a Lonely Planet destination guide, or a title from the Lonely Planet Kids range. (*T&C’s – The chosen Lonely Planet book must be in English and can only be sent to bloggers living within Europe).
And here are our favourites from last time……
Karen absolutely loved this post the photos are simply stunning, it made her want to book a trip to Scotland and do this exact route this summer!
She also really enjoyed reading about Four Acorns day out walking, and could not believe the photos were taken on an iPhone as they are brilliant.
I adored Vicky’s post highlighting the best views of London, it is a must for any visitor to London and the Sky Garden is firmly at the top of my wish list after making it up the Shard last week.
I also loved Elizabeth’s tour of Epernay which made me want to book a crossing to France asap, we love Champagne, who doesn’t? And what a wonderful way to spend a couple of days.
