Welcome Back to Monday Escapes on Monday 8th May. It’s been a bit of a quieter month here at Mini Travellers as it’s just over two weeks until we head off to Rwanda for two weeks so we’ve been trying to spend a bit of time at home in anticipation.
We’ve not been sitting around doing nothing though and we have been getting on top of all the posts we’ve needed to write after our crazy busy Easter break.
Here are just a few of our Instagram photos if you missed them!
This one had an amazing time on the LTA run #TennisForKids course last year. She got her very own racket at the end of the 6 week course! Tennis For Kids is designed for 5-8 year olds who want to learn to play tennis and it’s completely free! Lily took part in the @britishtennis ad this year and you can see the new video https://youtu.be/4-FnJ7Duhps?list=PL6P9iGS4Ir9lDhDE7Dw4HelKYJNa3UE4B @BritMums #Ad #britishtennis #gohitit #tennisforkids #tennisdrills #lovetennis #tennis #LTA #tennisball #tenniscourt #healthy #exercise #training #tennislife #tennistime #tennisteam #tennisclub #Instatennis #sports #childrenssport #active #footwork #children #kids #lawntennisassociation #outdoorfun #outdoorsandfree #outsideeveryday
I do post a similar picture to this a lot: it’s on my run route and I allow myself a moment to breathe when I get here. Today I ran 8 miles which means my half marathon target is still a way off. But I have 8 weeks to go and I will do it! 2nd July is the date! #runninggirl #halfmarathontraining #runlikeagirl #runlikecrazy
We also made a couple of videos and here is one of Motorhome trip, kindly put together by WeEdit.com
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.
Mine and Sarah’s favourite posts from the last Monday Escapes are:
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.
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.
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, yes four of the hosts’ blogs each fortnight, introducing your blog to even more people. How great is that?! 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. How great is that?! (*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.
