Monday Escapes #4


It was another awesome week for Monday Escapes – with 50 link ups and some fabulous travel stories and days trips. Thank you to each and everyone of you for your continued support.Inline image 1We started Monday Escapes because we wanted to meet more people who share our love of getting out and about and exploring the world. Happily, we are starting to do just that and it’s been truly wonderful finding new bloggers every week – we all hope you are enjoying it, too. It’s been so inspiring and long may it continue.

Here is a small selection of some of our favourite posts from last week:

Puffins and Bluebells on Skomer – A Family Day Out

Exploring the Waterland By Bike – Baby Routes

Spelunking in Burra, Shetland – Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary

Four go mad in Monaco – Bod for Tea

What is Monday Escapes?

Monday Escapes is all about looking back a wonderful, happy travel memories and sharing them with others. It doesn’t have to be abroad or even a written post. If you want to share your favourite snapshots – whether it’s a famous site, 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.

How to join in

  • Link up to three posts – old or new – this week is right over here on Packing my Suitcase.
  • 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 – if you are having trouble figuring out how to add the badge let us know and we will help you out.
  • Posts are anything travel-related, and can include photos, reviews, days out, attractions and walks – at home or abroad.
