I hope you’ve all had a fantastic half term? We have spent our half term cruising and visiting family. Our cruise was not the normal family cruise but the Bravo Performing Arts Festival At Sea. From a theatre perspective it was heaven. The food was just amazing, and the quality of Celebrity Silhouette was perfection. Although there were only 4 or 5 kids onboard the whole ship we still had a wonderful time. Check out my postcards here.
We adore cruising as a family, its great to try out different types of cruise. That is the wonderful thing, cruising has something so suit everybody.
And we have been mad busy over on cruising with kids with Donna also sharing whats new on Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas. We have some exciting adventures coming up on the cruise front and can’t wait to share them.
On to Monday Escapes…
This week Monday Escapes will be hosted by myself and Karen over at Mini Travellers where you will find the link up tool.
Monday Escapes travel bloggers link up 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 Lisa and Claire’s eyes last time:
This post by Dawn who writes 5 Lost Together is brilliant for anyone planning a similar trip to Uluru. I’d heard that Uluru was far out and that probably would have put me off, but this has made me think again!
Claire said: This was hilarious to read and the videos also made me chuckle. A great reminder by the Gilbert family that travel doesn’t have to be serious. In fact, the crazier the better for making memories!
Lisa said:My kids are desperate for a dog and the main thing that puts me off is the logistics of what we would do with it when travelling so I found this post very enlightening! You clearly can still travel with a pooch.
Lisa said: “Like Nicky, I have recently visited the SS Great Britain with my family and can also vouch that it is a brilliant family friendly attraction. (Also like Nicky, I climbed the rigging and attempted to walk across the yard arm… its not for the faint hearted. My legs shake just thinking about it! Fantastic birds eye views over Bristol though!)
