Monday Escapes #35

Next weekend, the MTM family will be packing up our car and heading over to France on a road trip to the Burgundy region. We’re so looking forward to getting away and enjoying some good wine, cheese and sunshine.

I talk more about our itinerary in the post below, and I imagine a lot of UK-based bloggers will also be going on all manner of trips as it’s school half term. Whatever you all get up to, I hope you have a wonderful time and I look forward to reading about your adventures.

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.
