Monday Escapes: 12/11/18

Hello and welcome to another week of Monday Escapes. The days are definitely shorter, darker and colder now, so I am really looking forward to escaping into the wonderful world of travel via your posts again.  

What have we been up to?

We’ve had a busy few weeks of Halloween, Bonfire Night and a family birthday back in my hometown of Camden in North London. I love strolling around the world famous Camden Market, and reminiscing about how different it used to be.

I love this snap of my eldest in front of some of the ever changing street are of the area:

We had fun Halloween and Bonfire Night celebrations with friends:

Sorry if this is a bit political for Monday Escapes – but he did come up with the idea himself!

And to top off a fab few weeks, we were lucky enough to have an awesome evening of fun at Coral Reef Waterworld in Bracknell, where we were hosted by Zoggs UK. The kids had the most amazing time, and I am having so much fun reliving the evening whilst going through all my images and videos!

Our favourite posts from last time

Thank you to everyone who linked up over on Katy’s blog last time, as always there were some wonderfully inspiring travel posts. 

I have to say that my favourite was this post from Wandermust Family with tips and tricks for planning a trip to Yellowstone.

I thought the post was informative and would be perfect for anyone planning a trip, especially with kids in tow. With tips from what to pack to where to stay, it really is a one stop shop for tips – not to mention that the pictures alone make me want to pack up and head there right now!

It seems Katy and I are both dreaming of heading across the Atlantic as she loved this post from Dotted Lines Travel all about the Larch Valley Hike in Banff National Park.

Our Lonely Planet Winner

We loved reading all your posts as usual but we both agreed that Leona’s post was our favourite this week. Leona, please get in contact to claim your prize!

A reminder: What is Monday Escapes?

Monday Escapes is a place to share and look back at your favourite travel memories; from day trips, to trips of a life time and anything else in between. It doesn’t always have to be a written post, we would love you to share your favourite travel snapshots too. Monday Escapes is simply a place for you to link up with any travel experience that you want to share.

What’s in it for you?

The main thing is of course that you’ll be sharing your awesome travel 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 mine and Katy’s blogs each fortnight, introducing your blog to even more people. We will also re-tweet anyone who uses the #MondayEscapes hashtag. Our joint favourite post each fortnight will win either a Lonely Planet  destination guide, or a title from the Lonely Planet Kids range (See T&C’s below). Another great reason to link up with Monday Escapes!

Lonely Planet Prizes

Each week Lonely Planet are kind enough to offer either a destination guide, or a title from the Lonely Planet Kids range to the writer of our favourite post each fortnight. (See T&C’s below).

How Does Monday Escapes Work?

• 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 linkys only work if you share the comment love. That’s why they’re so great! Make sure you add #MondayEscapes to the end of your comment so people can see where you’ve come from. 
• If you tweet either of us your links @daisyhuntington and @Otisandus_blog please use #MondayEscapes and we will be sure to retweet.
• Similarly, if you want to show off your photos on Instagram using #MondayEscapes, we will show those photos some love too.

Monday Escapes will go live every two weeks, alternating between both Katy and I, 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 MondayEscapes Pinterest Board – so if you’d like to start pinning some of your favourite photos, do get in touch.

Now over to you! 

Before you link up, please make sure you have added the Monday Escapes badge to your post, or to your sidebar, using the code below.
