Monday Escapes

Welcome Back to Monday Escapes on Monday 3rd July.  I can’t believe we are in July already, this year is just running away with me.  The girls are nearly finished school for the Summer and then we will be off to Corsica.  It feels like we’ve just come back from one holiday and off to the next. We are so very lucky.

If you missed it the other week, we’ve been shortlisted as finalists in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards – and if you’d like to vote I would be over the moon!  Travel section is section 9 and the link is here!

Last time it was Monday Escapes I shared with you one of the videos we made about our trip to Rwanda and here is another about the schools visits!

I’ve also been off to the new Sani Dunes resort with Sarah and enjoyed some amazing R&R in luxurious surroundings. Take a look at some of my Instagram photos, or why not read about Why I loved Sani Dunes here:

 

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

Our favourite posts from the last Monday Escapes are:

I loved this post from Kids & Compass about travelling to Petra with Kids. It’s been on my wish list for a very long time and is very happy to see it doesn’t need to be done without the kids – oh and the Indiana Jones thing is a firm fave too!
