Hello and Welcome to Monday Escapes!
It feels like such a long time since I wrote a Monday Escapes post. First things first – Happy New Year (although that seems like such a long time ago doesn’t it?!) Thanks for linking up all of your lovely posts Thank you as always to everyone who linked up last time. We love sharing and reading your posts, I do love the #MondayEscapes community.
What have we been up to since our last Monday Escapes?
We have had a fairly chilled out few weeks, getting back in to work and school life following the Christmas and New Year break. I have also spent days of my life writing a narrative review for my MSc. All submitted and now time to focus on blog life for a while! We have enjoyed some lovely days out and winter walks this January, and now I am starting to look ahead and organise one or two lovely trips for 2019.
My recent posts
With all the uni work I have only managed to squeeze a couple of posts out lately. I have written my thoughts on the 8K Flexwarm heated jacket so read here for the full review. I have also put together a post of essential items for van life with kids – do let me know if you have any more to add to the list!
Our favourite posts from last time
I absolutely loved Nicky at Go Live Young and her perfect 10 day Cambodia itinerary .How amazing to have such a wonderful adventure with your family, oh and that sunset capture is absolutely beautiful.
Daisy was really interested to see The Complete Guide to Visiting Leon from Memories of the Pacific. she adds ” I have never heard of this town in Spain, but I really should have, because it looks just beautiful, with so much to see and do, and many amazing places to eat and drink”

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.
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!
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 the hosts and will be open Monday to Wednesday. Every fortnight we will be giving a shout out to some of our favourite posts and photos.
Over to you!
