Hello and welcome back to Monday Escapes 15/10/18

Happy Monday!! I can’t believe it is that time again! Where does the time go? Once again, thanks for supporting Monday Escapes.  We loved reading all of your posts and my travel bucket list is growing!

So what have we been up to?

This weekend we were lucky enough to be invited over to spend the day at the World of Wedgwood in Stoke-on-Trent. I mooched around the artisan market with stalls full of wonderful arts, crafts and food. The girls spent time in the decorating studio where they created amazing designs to be transferred on to a plate. They also spent an hour in the master craft studio where they had a go on the potters wheel. It got a little messy and it is safe to say they absolutely loved it!!! We enjoyed the most delicious roast beef dinner – perfect for a slow Sunday, before we explored the award winning Wedgwood museum. We had such a fab family day!!


Our favourite posts from last time

I loved Zoe’s post from Juggling on Rollerskates  – The Lodges at New House Farm. I have never visited Sussex before and the lodges look absolutely beautiful.  It looked an ideal destination for a family and the pool, hot tub and the animals on the grounds just looks like the perfect place to create some wonderful memories. Zoe’s photographs are just beautiful too. I am definitely adding this to my list for next year.

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.

This week’s Monday Escapes is being hosted by Daisy.  You’ll find the link up tool here on Dais Like These

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 Katy’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!
