Welcome to, or Welcome Back to Monday Escapes on 16th January 2017.  We have already been on our first trip of the year here at Mini Travellers and have just returned from a wonderful week in St Mawes Cornwall.   Our review of the trip is here and there is also a chance to win an amazing weeks holiday!  If you haven’t already entered you should do now! You have to be in it to win it and the break can be taken during term time, or during October, January and February school holidays!

If you follow Mini Travellers on Instagram you will have seen our Insta spam, but if not, here is a taste of the week!

Monday Escapes is a place to link up your travel memories and is hosted by Me, Sarah at Extraordinary Chaos, Lisa at Travel Loving Family (who is hosting today) and Clare at Tin Box Traveller. We also have a fabulous sponsor Lonely Planet.  We are 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!

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.

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 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).

So how do you join in?

• Link up to one post/photo – old or new.
• Please make sure to include the Monday Escapes badge at the bottom of the post, on your site, or a link back to the hosts.
• Posts are anything travel-related, and can include photos, reviews, days out, attractions and walks – at home or abroad.
• Comment on posts by the co-hosts and at least two others. Blog hops only work if you share the comment love. That’s why they’re so great!
• If you tweet any of us your links @minitravellers @sarahjchristie @tinboxtraveller or @travellovinfam, please use #MondayEscapes and we will be sure to retweet.

Monday Escapes will go live every two weeks, alternating between the hosts and will be open Monday to Wednesday. Every fortnight we will be giving a shout out to some of our favourite posts.

There is also a Monday Escapes Pinterest Board – so if you’d like to start pinning some of your favourite photos, do get in touch.

So why not head over to Lisa at Travel Loving Family  and link up today!

Love all these pictures. Monday Escapes is always such fun to read through. Now if I could just get organised enough to include my post each time in the Linky!

All the kid photos are adorable, but I really love the first one -- old architecture, fresh faces! Thanks for sponsoring Monday Escapes and reminding us how much fun travel with kids can be.
