Hello and welcome Monday Escapers. I hope you enjoyed halloween and bonfire night as much as my family and I did. I was hoping to be meeting up with lots of you this week at the World Travel Market but instead I’m full of cold that I’m trying to shake off before going on a press trip this Thursday. I’ll therefore be reading your lovely posts whilst sipping a Lemsip!
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been busy publishing the last few articles from our fabulous two weeks in Brittany over the summer holidays. It’s unbelievable to think that Brittany is just a short hop across the channel…
Can you guess where this photo was taken? (Without looking at my hashtags 🙄) Clue: a group of islands located just one hour away from the UK which rules out the Caribbean but it certainly felt like we were there! I’ve just posted an article over on my blog featuring this destination with perfect white sand and crystal clear water. Link in my profile if you want to know the answer 💙💙
If I have tempted you to visit Brittany you may find these posts handy –
Without further ado, 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.
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. (Karen at Mini Travellers, Sarah at Extraordinary Chaos, Claire at Tin Box Traveller and myself). 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).
Our favourite posts from last time
Karen really respects the planning that went into this trip by Dan and Celine at Baby Can Travel and the ability to continue doing what they love, ‘hiking’, with the little ones in tow, or on their backs!
This time’s winner of the Lonely Planet guide is the TraveLynn Family! Congratulations and get in touch to claim your prize!
So how do you join in this time?
* Link up one post/photo – old or new using the InLinkz tool. **Claire is our host this week over at Tin Box Traveller**
* 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 and photos.
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.
