Monday Escapes 27/02/17


Hello and welcome to Monday Escapes, I hope you have had a fab weekend? I have an exciting week ahead planned with a couple of days in London. An exciting  visit to the Shard, afternoon tea and a baking lesson. So will be trying to organise myself a little today. 

A Cheeky Trip To London
Monday Escapes is a place to link up your travel memories and is hosted by Karen at Mini Travellers, Lisa at Travel Loving Family and Clare at Tin Box Traveller and myself.
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!
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.

Claire and Lisa’s favourite posts from the last Monday Escapes are:

2 Travel Dads – Claire loves hearing about the places travel bloggers call home.

And what they recommend doing and seeing there. Rob has really sold us on a visit to Dungeness in the US.

Claire also loved this post by Dotted Travels

Claire had a rather disappointing visit to Pompeii last year which was nothing to do with the site – it was the quality of their guide that was the problem. Bryna’s visit to Pompeii looks wonderful in comparison. It’s given Claire an urge to return and see it her way!

Lisa loved this post from Smart Mouse Travels

Cristin’s guide to St Louis brought back many great memories of her year studying in Midwest, USA. St Louis was my favourite place to head for the weekend!

Polly’s post from Our Seaside Baby has Lisa very excited for her upcoming trip to Bluestone.

She shares her highlights of staying at the resort and also visiting nearby Tenby beach which looks stunning.
