Monday Escapes 8/05/17


Good Morning And Welcome To Monday Escapes 8/05/17, I hope you had a wonderful weekend and got some of the glorious sunshine we were able to enjoy.

Its been a mad couple of weeks for me, with a wonderful trip to London for Traverse travel bloggers conference, packed with talk and inspiration about my favourite subject. As this post goes live I will be in my morning spinning class (I Must be mad) before heading to London for an exciting little project, and an afternoon searching for street art.

My Weekly Round Up, Inspiration

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!

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!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

After a lot of deliberating here are Karen and my top posts from last time:

A Year in a French Forest by Lou Messugo I could just imagine stumbling upon all these designs and how exciting that would be. A natural treasure hunt. This is also our winning post! Lou please do get in touch to arrange your prize.

We also loved Charly’s post about the Picos de Europe, I keep looking at booking flights to Bilbao and explore and this may just have given me the kick I need to book it!
 My Weekly Round-Up, Inspiration at Traverse
Brigitte’s post took my breath away, this incredible tree in Namibia has seen 800 years of history and protected and saved many lives a truly incredible story and something I would love to visit.

And Swapna’s post about the Humbolt Penguin Reserve is incredible, such stunning animals how they should be in their own habitat I just love it, such stunning pictures.
