Good Morning And Welcome To Monday Escapes 16/01/2017

I hope you have had a fab weekend. I really need to start planing all my travel for next year, at the moment I am feeling like a kid in a sweet shop. Not knowing exactly what I want to do for the year ahead.  I have a few ideas, I just need to consolidate them.

If you want to see me create my projects, follow me on Tik Tok and Instagram.

For those of you who haven’t linked before. Monday Escapes is a place to link up your travel memories. 

Monday Escapes is all about looking back at wonderful, happy travel memories. And keeping those memories alive by sharing them with others!   And we have great news, we also now have a new sponsor so even more reason to join in, pop over to Travel Loving Family to find out who.

This fortnight’s featured Monday Escapes posts

One of the best and worst jobs of hosting is picking a few favourites to share. There were so many fantastic posts and Instagram pictures.

After a lot of deliberating my top posts from last time were:

I love Sima’s post about flying into the Grand Canyon.

This is a trip we have done ourselves, and it is such an incredible experience. This brought it all back.

And this beautiful post from Nano on her Idyllic Day Trip to Nara,

as usually her photography is gorgeous and Nara is now firmly on my ever-growing travel wish list.

Karens favourites were;

These sunny blue skies in post from Charly about Berlin are beautiful.

She’s definitely made me add Berlin to my list.

Between Karen, Claire, Lisa and myself , we will be tweeting to direct you where to link up and who the two hosts are for the week. And 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.

 So how do you join in?

Link up to one post/photo – old or new.
• Please make sure to include the Monday Escapes badge at the bottom of the post, on your site, or a link back to the hosts.
• Posts are anything travel-related, and can include photos, reviews, days out, attractions and walks – at home or abroad.
• Comment on posts by the 2 co-hosts and at least two others. Blog hops only work if you share the comment love. That’s why they’re so great!
• If you tweet any of us your links @minitravellers @sarahjchristie @tinboxtraveller or @travellovinfam, please use #MondayEscapes and we will be sure to retweet.

Similarly, if you want to show off your photos on Instagram using #MondayEscapes, we will show those photos some love. Please note as our Instagram community is very small we’re no longer sharing our favourite posts each fortnight. But please keep using the hashtag as we’d like to continue to support our regular linkers.

There is also a Monday Escapes Pinterest Board – so if you’d like to start pinning some of your favourite photos, do get in touch. We will also be pinning all of your posts to the Monday Escapes Pinterest Board, drop me an email at if you would like to be invited to pin to the board, and don’t forget to share the love and pin some of the amazing posts to your travel boards.


Head over to Lisa’s blog to add your link and thanks for joining us.
