Monday Escapes #15

Happy bank holiday to all those of you who are lucky enough to be getting an extra day off this week – we were planning on doing something exciting today – but yet again, the great British summer has something to say about it – and the forecast is yet more rain! Luckily, we’ve had a busy weekend already visiting friends and spending time on the Southbank.

Monday Escapes #15

Whatever you are getting up to, I wish you all a very good day – and look forward to reading about all your adventures. We had record numbers linking up last week – it won’t be long until we reach the 100 mark! Allane and I like to thank you all for your support.

Just a reminder to all of you joining in… 

To all you wonderful bloggers linking up your posts – Allane and I love reading them all, and comment on each and every one of them.
However, please can we politely ask that linkers adhere to the rules we set out below as we’ve started to notice that badges and link backs are missing and comments aren’t being shared amongst not only ourselves, but other bloggers, too – after all, the whole point of a blog hop is to actually go and visit other blogs…
Enough of the stern, here’s our pick of our favourite posts and photos from last week – please check them out if you haven’t already.

What is Monday Escapes?

Monday Escapes is all about looking back a wonderful, happy travel memories and sharing them with others. It doesn’t have to be abroad or even a written post. If you want to share your favourite snapshots – whether it’s a famous sight, scene, dramatic view or even a favourite family photo, then please feel free to link those up, too. Likewise, posts don’t have to be about holidays or weekends away, they can also include day trips, walks, attractions – any travel experience that you want to share.

How to join in

• Link up to three posts/photos – old or new – in one week.
• Please make sure to include the Monday Escapes badge 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. Blog hops only work if you share the comment love. That’s why they’re so great!
• If you tweet us your links @my_travelmonkey and @packingsuitcase, please use #MondayEscapes and we will be sure to retweet.
• Similarly, if you want to show off your photos on Instagram using #MondayEscapes tagging @mytravelmonkey or @packingmysuitcase, we will happily share.

Monday Escapes will go live every week, alternating between myself and Allane at Packing My Suitcase – and be open for seven days. Each week, we will be giving a shout out to some of our favourite posts and photos, and choosing a Photo of the Week via Instagram.
