Monday Escapes

Welcome Back to Monday Escapes on Monday 22nd May.

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.  We head off to Rwanda on Friday so it is really all about that at the moment. I must pack!!

Here are just a few of our Instagram photos if you missed them!

We have been looking back at our Portugal trip this week:

Monday Escapes is a place to link up your travel memories and is hosted by Me, Sarah at Extraordinary Chaos (who is hosting today) Lisa at Travel Loving Family and Clare at Tin Box Traveller.

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:

Tracey from Tracy’s Travel’s in Time spent 2016 visiting as many of the designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the UK as possible. She has put together a post featuring 26 of the UNESCO UK sites with short descriptions and inspiring photos which has really made me want to visit a few that have been on my travel wish list for a long time… the Giants Causeway and Stonehenge. (Stonehenge Lisa is ashamed to say is literally down the road from her and she still haven’t visited!)

Lisa also LOVEs this guide to Budapest by Ruth at Tanama Tales it makes us all want to go!

Claire loved Lorelei’s picture-perfect tour of the stunningly beautiful half-timbered and quirky buildings of Idestein in Germany. This is why it’s on her bucket list of European destinations she must return to soon

Trish tells the incredible story of Bletchley Park and the work carried out there during WWII. This is somewhere I’ve wanted to visit since watching The Imitation Game. What an incredible place!
Trish is also our winner this week, please do get in touch Trish to claim your prize.

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.

    How exciting that you’re off to Rwanda! Really looking forward to reading more of your adventures and seeing all the photos. And I love that photo of you running down the sand dunes!
