Hello travel fans and welcome to another Monday Escapes. Since last time we’ve had a few weeks to acclimatise to our new home in Devon after our trip to France, and we’ve snuck in a long weekend on the edge of the stunning Peak District National Park. The weather has been with us for most of it, particularly this weekend just gone when we celebrated Fathers’ Day close to come. To be honest, it felt like somewhere a whole lot more tropical. Here’s a few of our Instagram posts to bring you bang up to date with our adventures:

Today Karen and Sarah hosting the Monday Escapes linky and you’ll find the tool to share your wonderful posts on Mini Travellers.

I’ve linked up our Al Fresco Holidays mobile home break in France, Karen is sharing a review of a holiday in Normandy, Sarah is linking up part two of her holiday at Ikos Olivia in Greece, and Lisa is linking reasons to visit Wychwood Festival next year.

What is Monday Escapes?

Monday Escapes is a place to link up your travel memories and is hosted by myself, Karen at Mini Travellers, Sarah at Extraordinary Chaos and Lisa at Travel Loving Family.

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!

Our favourite posts from last time

Our favourite posts from the last Monday Escapes are:

Lisa loved Piccolo Explorer’s wonderful post about their Family Holiday in Orlando where they visited Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Lisa also absolutely loves this guide to the Cotswolds by local Cotswolds Bloggers, Adam and Sarah at Lewis Loves – The couple have shared their personal recommendations including best restaurants, coffee shops, views, festivals, events, farm parks and so much more. Lisa truly wishes she had written this epic guide, it is so useful for locals and visitors alike!

The Go Live Young family have had the most epic adventure – traveling around the world in eight months. I’m in awe of all the wonderful places they saw and experiences they had together. What amazing memories to keep forever!

Elizabeth’s post and pictures (oh, the pictures!) made me dribble. She was treated to a tour of Paris’ best bistros and experienced some amazing food. This is why the French are renowned world-wide for their gastronomy. Yum!
