It is an absolute pleasure to be guest hosting #UKexplore this month with the lovely Karen who writes over at Mini Travellers.
I love taking part in the UK explore community myself, tagging our adventures around the UK. #UKexplore is one of the very few hashtags that I make a point of following over on Instagram. There are always so many lovely photos shared each day.
So what have we been unto? January has been a lovely month. For us it is a month where we slow down as a family, recharge our batteries and start thinking about our holidays for the year.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m sure you have forgotten who we are 🙈😆 We have been having some really chilled out weekends after some crazy busy weeks. I’m tired 🙂 I also need to starting to think about holidays for this year … do we fancy another camper road trip? Where do we go? . This 📸 was taken on the beach in St Jean de Monts last year. I love to sit on the beach watching the sunset. I’m always so last minute. Always rushing. I’m not a huge planner…., I like to wing it on a daily basis. But this year I may actually plan some trips. 💪🏻 Are you someone who likes to plan? Have you already booked a holiday for this year?? . . . #scilly #scillyisles #islesofscilly #stmartin #sunsetphotography #sunsetview #sunsetchaser #beachsunsets #holidayplans #Travelwithus #suitcasetribe #beachandsunset #wanderlusting #taketimeforyou #reflectionstories #europetravel #travelingeurope #roadtrippin #vanlife #homeiswhereyouparkit
We have had some truly beautiful sunsets this month haven’t we? I have loved seeing all of your wonderful photos from your adventures, days out and outdoor captures across the UK.
Just in case you aren’t aware what #UKexplore is, it is an Instagram community that we have invited you all to join in with and share your favourite places across the UK and your outdoor adventures.
To join in it doesn’t have to be a photograph one of the 534 National Trust properties (although we do think they are amazing); we want to see your ‘off the beaten track’ spots, too. It could be the most marvellous of meadows, the perfect place for a picnic, the loveliest lake for skimming stones, or rambling routes for running along. Wherever and whenever you’re out exploring, simply take a snap and upload it to Instagram so we can all share in your adventures and explore the UK with you. All we ask is that you use the #UKexplore hashtag so we can find you.
You don’t have to be a blogger, anyone can join in and be in with a chance to win a National Trust day pass for your family. So without further ado, who have I chosen this month….
