Welcome Back to Monday Escapes on Monday 5th June.
We are still in Rwanda so hopefully you will have seen some posts of what we are up to. If you haven’t do pop over to Instagram or Twitter and have a look at the hashtag #RwandaAdventure
Here are just a few of our pre-trip Instagram photos if you missed them!
What can you see? Can you see the Gruffalo? Last weekend we went #gruffalo spotting at Delamere Forest. We were also @goingonanadventureblog spotting too but we missed her by about 5 minutes by the sound of it! #forest #gruffalospotting #ukexplore #smiling #mum #joules #ttot #familytravel #travelwithchildren #travelwithkids #travelkids #igtravel #trips100 #traveltheworld #showthemtheworld #myfamilyadventures #traveltherenext #postcardsfromtheworld #traveldeeper #travelstroke #travelling #trip #getaway#travelblog #wanderer #wanderlust #travelphoto#travelingram #ourweekendadventure
Today has been a very strange day. I’ve cried and been close to tears all day despite feeling guilty that those tears have been for people I don’t know. Do I have the right to feel so upset when it isn’t my loved ones; when I get to hold mine tight tonight. It was my eldest’s sports day today and my little girls school came together for a lovely gathering and we all seemed to respect that opportunity that little bit more. We chatted a bit more, we hugged a bit more and we didn’t really want it to end. It was lovely to be surrounded by people. The balloons we let off in support of a fabulous charity and there were cheers when they were let off into the sky: an appreciation of freedom and what community is. Manchester you have that community in spades. You’ve been incredible today. Keep being incredible! #prayingformanchester #Manchester #ukexplore #balloons #balloonrace
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.
Our favourite posts from the last Monday Escapes are:
Exploring the Rose Granite Coast by Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays, Karen is heading to Northern Brittany in late August so was really excited to read this post and look at all the beautiful photos
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.
