Hello and welcome to Monday Escapes on Monday 8th January.

What have we been up to?

It’s back to school for my kids today and we’ve had a really lovely break. We’ve been to Lapland, had a break in the Peak District and made the most of a sunny couple of days at home.

Over on Cruising with Kids we’ve had some great guest posts from other cruise loving bloggers the latest from the fab Christina highlighting the magic of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo Boutique

On to Monday Escapes…

This week Monday Escapes is being hosted by Sarah from Extraordinary Chaos .  You’ll find the link up tool on Sarah’s blog.

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 Claire from Tin Box Traveller and Lisa from Travel Loving Family and Myself.

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 of the hosts’ blogs each fortnight, introducing your blog to even more people.

Our favourite posts from last time

Lisa loves this rather humorous, and very honest, article featuring visiting Rome in the summer with kids. It sure does look and sound very hot!

Rome With Kids


Lisa also absolutely adores the photos in Nano’s article featuring a day at a wine estate in New Zealand. The photos of the delicacies she captured by camera before delving into will have your mouth watering! Take a look for yourself…..

Claire had no idea there was such a ritual to ordering coffee in Italy. Sure, it’s the best she’s ever had but this post by Travel-stained has been an education to her. And she will not be ordering a latte after breakfast again, thats for sure!

Coffee in Italy

And lastly Claire wishes she had the stomach she used to for rollercoasters. Ava from My Meena Life has done a great review of the coasters at Bush Gardens Williamsburg. Check out her scoring system – love it!
