Over on Cruising with Kids we’ve had this great guest post about cruising with Disney around Alaska and Sarah has put together a round up of the best family-friendly ships launching in 2018.

Here on Mini Travellers we’ve been talking about great places to travel in 2018 and showing you a video of our time in the Lodges at Sandybrook Country Park! It’s obviously struck a chord with lots of you as over 16k people have viewed it!

On to Monday Escapes…

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

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 Karen from Mini Travellers, Sarah from Extraordinary Chaos 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

Here’s the posts that caught Sarah and Karen’s eyes last time:
