Monday Escapes 2018

Hello and welcome to the first  Monday Escapes of 2018! I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year?

What does this year hold for you on the travel front? We have a very exciting trip to Center Parcs planned for January and today I am planning a very exciting trip to Elite Island Resorts in the Caribbean, woohooo all thanks to the gorgeous Susanna and her Elite Islands Family Competition. I am still pinching myself.

We have had a busy Christmas packed with family time. Its this time of year you thank your lucky stars you have such wonderful family and friends around you isn’t it?

Over on Cruising with Kids we’ve had some great guest posts from other cruise loving bloggers the latest from the fab Christina highlighting the magic of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo Boutique

On to Monday Escapes…

This week Monday Escapes is being hosted by myself and Karen over at Mini Travellers

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.

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 favourite posts from last time

 

Lisa loves this rather humorous, and very honest, article featuring visiting Rome in the summer with kids. It sure does look and sound very hot!

Rome With Kids

Lisa also absolutely adores the photos in Nano’s article featuring a day at a wine estate in New Zealand. The photos of the delicacies she captured by camera before delving into will have your mouth watering! Take a look for yourself…..

Claire had no idea there was such a ritual to ordering coffee in Italy. Sure, it’s the best she’s ever had but this post by Travel-stained has been an education to her. And she will not be ordering a latte after breakfast again, thats for sure!

And lastly Claire wishes she had the stomach she used to for rollercoasters. Ava from My Meena Life has done a great review of the coasters at Bush Gardens Williamsburg. Check out her scoring system – love it!

And the winner of the Lonely Planet guide is Shelley from Travel Stained, Get in touch Shelley with your chosen title and we can arrange for it to be sent out to you xx
