Hello and welcome back to Monday Escapes!
Welcome back and thank you to everyone who links up to Monday Escapes. I say this every week but we do love reading and sharing all of your posts. I also love seeing all of your travel photos tagged over on Instagram! I am definitely inspired by your travel and adventures!!
What have we been up to?
Have you had a lovely half term? What have you been up to? I have loved having a little bit of annual leave and been able to enjoy some lazy days ‘pottering’ around and enjoying a few days out and a little bit of time at home. We did manage to escape to Chester to explore with the kids, and popped in to Cheshire Ice-cream farm.
We drove over to Anglesey to visit Penmon Point and enjoyed fish and chips in Beaumaris before heading home.

On Friday we were invited along to The Legoland Discovery Centre in Birmingham which was a fab day out with the kids. The day involved Lego creations, soft play, a 4D cinema and a Duplo toddler farm. The kids absolutely loved it, so I am sure we will be planning a return soon.
The sun has made an appearance this week and its been so warm – Spring is in the air. We have loved our days pottering at home and in the garden. We stayed local one day and enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine -giving the kids an opportunity to practice their bike and scooter skills. We ended the day with a picnic in Otis our camper.
Our Favourite posts from last time
Thanks again for linking up to Monday Escapes. I had to pick Typical Mummy and her post on Penmon Point this week…because without this post I would not have visited Penmon point during our half term. I didn’t know anything about this beautiful place before I read your post, so thank you Ella!!! We had a lovely day out and the Victoria Sponge in the Cafe went down a treat too.
Daisy adds “I really enjoyed this post from Catherine at Cultural Wednesdays all about their stay at Colditz Castle…yes, they stayed at Colditz Castle, and in the Youth Hostel no less! I had absolutely no idea that there was even accomodation at Colditz but to know there is real family friendly accomodation is really interesting.”
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 Typical Mummy and her post on Penmon Point this week. Do get in touch Ella to claim your prize!
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.
