Good Morning. It’s Monday 4th December and we are well into the Christmas spirit here having spent the last few days at a variety of Christmas themed events!  I’m also really excited to be heading off to Morzine soon for a luxury chalet weekend and then onto Lapland for Christmas!!

This week Monday Escapes is being hosted by Claire at Tin Box Traveller and Lisa from Travel Loving Family. You’ll find the link up tool on Lisa’s post.


Over on Cruising with Kids we’ve had some great guest posts from other cruise loving bloggers with their tips for cruising with Disney and why cruises are great for kids.

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.

The linky is run by Sarah from Extraordinary Chaos, Karen from Mini Travellers, Claire from Tin Box Traveller and Lisa from Travel Loving Family.

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.

Our favourite posts from last time

Karen said: “You will definitely want to visit when you see the spectacular photos in this post by Keri at Our Globetrotters. We are gutted we missed this area when we were in Oman the other week.”

Karen said: “Life as our Little Family‘s Kerri-Anne has made me determined to put Disneyland on our list for Christmas 2018. It sounds just wonderful.”

Life as our little family

Sarah said: “This post from 5 Lost Together is so inspiring and offers so many hints and tips on how travelling the world as a family can be achieved. I feel travel is such a huge part of a child’s education and such a wonderful gift to give our children.”

Sarah said: “I love Donna from Live Love Do‘s post and itinerary suggestions for a boating holiday on the Norfolk Broads this is something I have always wanted to do.”
