Hello and welcome to Monday Escapes on this cold January morning. Its been a busy couple of weeks for us looking at High Schools and making decisions about Joe’s future. It seems to be all I have thought about lately!
But hoorah we have a family trip planned to visit Center Parcs this weekend and I can’t wait for the mental wind down that staying in the forest gives you.
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.
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
Here’s the posts that caught our eye last time:

Karen said: “I loved the photogrpahy in this post by Dotted Line and it really took me back to the sunsets we saw in Cambodia.” Dotted Line Travels – Catching the Sunrise at Angkor Wat
I love Lisa’s informative and honest post about New Year in Vebier and despite her balanced review it has made me crave the atmosphere Switzerland promises for New Year celebrations. Australian Travel Barbie – New Year’s Eve in Verbier, Switzerland: the good and the bad
And Sharon’s post on the WWII heroes of Prague was a touching and informative post highlighting just how many heroes the war made worldwide. It’s so important to not forget these brave peoples stories. Exploring Our World – Prague’s Heroes of WWII
