Monday Escapes, 25/09

In case you missed our announcement two weeks ago I’m going to share with you again the news that the Monday Escapes team have launched a new family travel website: Cruising With Kids. Our aim is to share what’s new and exciting in the cruising industry for families with kids of all ages. We are so excited about this new venture and can’t wait to get our teeth into it.

If you’d like to write a guest post for us then we’d love to hear from you at and we would also be very grateful for any follows on our new social media accounts: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.

What have we been up to?

It’s all been quiet on the Christie front, I say quiet we have filled out time with meals out with good friends and getting used to the new routine of new schools and college.

However I have been re living our Mark Warner trip this week, which has made me smile and think of sunny days.

This weekend I am off to London. I haven’t been for a couple of months so am so excited to get back to the buzz of the city.

And back 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 number one favourite post of the fortnight will also win a Lonely Planet destination guide, or a title from the Lonely Planet Kids range. (*T&C’s – The chosen Lonely Planet book must be in English and can only be sent to bloggers living within Europe).

Our favourite posts from last time

Our favourite posts from the last Monday Escapes were:

Lisa loved Jo’s guide to family friendly accommodation in Cornwall which will be very useful for any parents planning a family break – 27 Baby and Toddler Friendly Places to Stay in Cornwall
Lisa also loved Zen Baby’s review of the stunning Four Seasons Resort in Nevis, the Caribbean. It seems like the perfect time to help promote this island after the damage it has suffered over the last few days.
Claire loved reading about Lauren’s trip to Poland and how she weaved her trip around attending a wedding. Grasp every opportunity to travel!
Claire also thought it was fabulous to see a post about one of her favourite villages to visit in Devon – Clovelly. Tas’s pictures of this wonderful little fishing port are beautiful.
Head over to Karen to see who the winner of our Lonely Planet guide is?

So how do you join in this time?

  • Link up one post/photo – old or new heading over to visit Karen at Mini Travellers
  • 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 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.

Monday Escapes will go live every two weeks, alternating between the hosts and will be open Monday to Wednesday. Every fortnight we will be giving a shout out to some of our favourite posts and photos.

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.
