Monday Escapes, The Travel Bloggers Link Up, 17/07/17


Welcome Back to Monday Escapes on Monday 17th July.

For those of you with kids we are so close to finishing for the summer I feel like we can almost touch it. Woohooo not long to go now and we will be off on our Mark Warner Adventure.

This will be the last Monday Escapes now until 4th September to allow us all to enjoy the Summer with our kids! Let’s make it a good one and we look forward to welcoming you all back in September to hear about your Summer adventures.

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

Since the last Monday Escapes I have spent some time in Manchester with my fellow Monday Escapes host Karen taking some lifestyle pictures, catching up on all things blogging and eating cake. And have also been to the incredible region of Baden Baden in Germany, wow what an amazing adventure that has been which I cant wait to share.

Monday Escapes is a place to link up your travel memories and is hosted 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)

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:

Molly’s post about Popeye Village in Malta is packed full of beautiful pictures of her fun visit. Who knew this place existed?! The five-year-old in me is itching to go!

Sima’s wedding anniversary trip to this quirky hotel in Lavenham has made me green with envy. The food, spa and slightly wonky accommodation sounds perfect for a couples’ break
Lisa challenges anyone who says they don’t ‘do’ camping to read Sarah’s review of Canvas and Stars on Hale Farm in Chiddingly, East Sussex. We love the wild flowers, hay bales for seats and all the quirky extras for kids including a dressing up rail!

We are also all feeling completely inspired by Jenn and Jason who are currently living in Bangalore with their 2 and 3 year olds. The family’s recent experience visiting Hampi completely captivated us. Their kids look like they are having so much fun exploring the temples and stroking the local elephants. What a life changing opportunity for them all! They are also our winner of this weeks Lonely Planet prize. Please do get in touch to claim it.

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).

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 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.
