Hello and welcome to Monday Escapes.
And just like that is May! But hoorah for sunshine and warmer weather.
What have we been up to?
I have been on a little trip over to Germany to see what the new Norwegian Bliss has to offer families. Bliss is an incredible ship and can’t fail to impress even the most seasoned of cruises. Our boys would love all she has to offer it certainly caters for the adrenalin lovers and foodie amongst us. Check out the Ocean Loops slide it’s insane?
Over on Cruising with Kids
And Claire and Lisa are off on the Navigator of the Seas next week on the Cruise.Co Back To The 80s Cruise. Keep an eye out for their insta stories and postcards on the blog, you need to see Lisa’s fancy dress.
This weeks Monday Escapes is being hosted by Myself and Karen over at Mini Travellers You’ll find the link up tool below.
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
Karen loved Your Dutch Guides post about LEEUWARDEN she said, “I’d never heard of this place at all but the combination of Beer, cheese, seals, and a prison you can eat in, makes this place sound like such fun.”
This post by Travelling with our Kids made Karen want to explore this part of Scotland this summer.
Claire enjoyed reading this post by Suzi from Raising Badgers about returning to a place she used to holiday as a kid with her own family. Claire said “I also used to spend a lot of my holidays in the Yorkshire Dales so this brought back a lot of great memories.”
Claire also said “It was so interesting reading about the eerily beautiful village of Imber which was taken over for military training in the 1940s. Keri from Ladies What Travel tells the story of this place well.”
And Claire and Karens favourite was Esther from Your Dutch Guide. Get in touch to with you chosen guide and congratulations.
