Monday Escapes 6/11/17

Hello and welcome to Monday Escapes and how is it November? Cliche I know but where has this year gone!

What have we been up to?

Its been a busy couple of weeks for us as we have been busy house hunting. I have also been down to London to check out the Xbox Loft and the new Xbox. The Christie boys were green with envy and I have to say it was pretty cool checking out what the new Xbox has to offer. I love getting the chance to nip to London and take photos, I could wander for hours.

This week I am off on a very exciting trip to see what Lanzarote has to offer families. Keep an eye out for my stories I can’t wait to share my adventure.

On to 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.

The linky is run by Karen from Mini Travellers, Claire from Tin Box Traveller and Lisa from Travel Loving Family and myself and we are also 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!

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 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).

Our favourite posts from last time

This post by Marie at Austrian Travel Barbie really made me want to go back to Mexico and explore. Last time I visited we had a toddler in tow and was limited to what we could do.

I also adored this post from Jenny and Jason at TraveLynn Family about visiting the Taj Mahal. It is a realistic account with some great tips and gorgeous photos.

Karen was fascinated by this post by the Wandermust Family about their time in Qatar and how many beautiful places there are.

Karen really respects the planning that went into this trip by Dan and Celine at Baby Can Travel and the ability to continue doing what they love, ‘hiking’, with the little ones in tow, or on their backs!
