What have we been up to?

We have had a quieter couple of weeks on the travel front and have enjoyed a couple of weekends pottering at home and ticking a few things off our ever growing to do list. The weekdays can be so very busy that we love to sit back and enjoy a quieter couple of days over the weekend. What have you been up to? We have managed to squeeze in a couple of lovely walks with puddles and mud galore!  I’ve also had a little time to catch up on the blog which is always nice.

Our Favourite posts from last time

Thanks again for linking up to Monday Escapes. There were so many posts I loved this time. I loved TravelynnFamily and her post on Lanzarote with kids. So good to see that you explored off the beaten track and showed another side to Lanzarote!

I loved Exploring by bicycle by Exploring our world, I would love to take a bike ride around Bruges and spot the gorgeous windmills. Finally I loved the Frozen bubbles at Abraham lake by Dotted line Travels -great photos and such a cool phenomenon!

Daisy adds ” I loved Wales with Kids by Go Live Young. We always opt to go with what we know when and head to North Wales, but this post has prompted me to look at new places in other parts of Wales too, which look equally stunning!!”

Our Lonely Planet Winner

As we mentioned last week, we are thrilled that Lonely Planet have been kind enough to continue 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).

We have chosen Nicky who writes over at Go Live Young with her post on  Amazing things to do in Wales with Kids. Do get in touch Nicky  to claim your prize!

Monday Escapes

Monday Escapes is a place to share and look back at your favourite travel memories; from day trips, holidays, trips of a life time and everything else in between. It doesn’t  have to be a written post, we love you to share your favourite travel snapshots too. Monday Escapes is simply a place for you to link up with like-minded people and share your travel and adventures, and hopefully grab some travel inspiration along the way.

The linky is now run by Daisy at Dais Like These and myself at Otis and Us.

Monday Escapes what’s in it for you

Monday Escapes is an opportunity to share you favourite travel posts, memories or photos.

The thing to remember is that you’ll be sharing your lovely 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 Daisy’s blogs each fortnight and therefore introducing your blog to even more people. We will also re-tweet anyone who uses the #MondayEscapes hashtag.

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!


How does Monday Escapes work and how do you join in?

• Link up to one post/photo – old or new.
• Please make sure to include the Monday Escapes badge (you will find the code below) 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. 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 Daisy 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.
