Good Morning Monday, what is it like where you are?
In case you missed our announcement two weeks ago I’m going to share with you again the news that the Monday Escapes team have launched a new family travel website: Cruising With Kids. Our aim is to share what’s new and exciting in the cruising industry for families with kids of all ages. We are so excited about this new venture and can’t wait to get our teeth into it.
If you’d like to write a guest post for us then we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would also be very grateful for any follows on our new social media accounts: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
What have we been up to?
Although I thought we might have a quieter start to September than we have had over the Summer that doesn’t seem to have been the case. In fact we have spent one weekend at Center Parcs, another at The Good Life Experience in Chester and this weekend just gone we’ve had two birthday parties! It’s all fun though!
Here are a couple of photos from Center Parcs and The Good Life Experience and our video too if you’d like to take a look
Just about to go and collect all the rest of the bikes! Lily brought her new birthday bike and we are thoroughly enjoying our cheeky end of summer weekend break here @centerparcsuk. It’s a fab time to come as it’s really quiet and the pool last night between 6 and 8pm was so much fun for the girls. I love these new tops from @stberts don’t you! #ukexplore #ad
We had such good fun @centerparcsuk this weekend and even managed to dodge a lot of the rain to do some den building! Girls were pretty pleased with our efforts and maintain if was waterproof despite getting a little wet when it was tested!!! Jumpers are @stberts as I know some of you wanted them too! #centerparcs #lakedistrict #whinfellforest

On to 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.
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!
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).
