It’s time for Monday Escapes again and this week you can link up on Travel Loving Family.

What have we been up to?

We are currently in Porto and having a really lovely time. The sun is shining and we are hoping to have lots of mini adventures this week! Here’s what we’ve been up to so far!

Over on Cruising with Kids: we’ve had a brilliant guest post about a family cruise to Papua New Guinea; Lisa has a very exciting 80s-themed cruise coming up; we’ve sharing some thoughts on why kids love cruising; and there’s a round-up of what you can expect from the new Explorer Academy kids clubs on Celebrity Cruises.

On to Monday Escapes…

This week Monday Escapes is being hosted by Lisa at Travel Loving Family and Claire at Tin Box Traveller.

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 Claire at Tin Box Traveller, 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 Karen and Sarah’s eyes last time:

Karen says: “There are some beautiful photos in this post from Kiddieholidays about the North York Moors and I would never have thought of it as a place to take toddlers before.” This is our star post this week, do get in touch to claim your prize!



Karen says: “This Complete Guide to Petra by Go Live Young is exceptional in the level of detail and will be my go to guide when I finally book.”

Sarah says: “I just adore the photos in Bryna from Dotted Line Travel‘s post featuring the Angkor Archaeological Park in Cambodia. If this alone isn’t a reason the visit Cambodia I don’t know what is?”

Sarah says: “After reading Emma from Wanderlust and Wet Wipes‘ post about visiting Jordan and staying in a Martian Dome I am desperate to visit Jordan. What an incredible experience.”
