Monday Escapes


Welcome to Monday Escapes on Halloween the 31st October 2016. As this goes live we are enjoying a break a the gorgeous Cameron Lodges in Loch Lomond. I am currently camping out over on their Instagram page,  bob by and say hi and more importantly to see how stunning it is.

Today I am linking up my 5 Reasons you will love the Rove Downtown Dubai, we loved visiting the Rove and wanted to share just how great it is.

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

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.

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.

Claire and Lisa’s favourite posts from last week are:

A Walk to Burra Ness Broch

We like the level of detail Elizabeth has included in her post about a walk and overnight stay on Yell in Scotland. It sounds like a magical place and we’d love to spook ourselves with a stay at Winehouse Lodge Cottage

Alta Alella Vineyard

Maria has shared her experience of a vineyard that offers family-friendly tours on the Costa Barcelona. Aside from her stunning photography which sells the experience in itself, what’s not to love about a vineyard that welcomes kids?

100+ Things to do in the UAE with Kids

Seriously impressed with how many attractions there are to visit with kids in the UAE by Keri at Baby Globetrotters

Wandermust Mummy made us want to hop back on a cruise ship with her article featuring her favourite 10 cruise ship ports including Venice and Copenhagen.

and their favourite Instagram pics from last week are:

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 and/or hashtagged Instagram posts featured on all four, yes four of the hosts’ blogs each fortnight, introducing your blog to even more people. How great is that?!

So how do you join in?

• Link up to one post – 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 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.

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, and choosing a Photo of the Fortnight via Instagram.

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.
