Final Monday Escapes

It has been a long journey. A fun, interesting and enriching journey… When Allane and I started Monday Escapes in May 2015, we never imagined how far we would go, and how many wonderful people and blogs we would meet and discover.

Along the way we have had over 2,300 links from more than 160 different bloggers, which means Allane and I read about 1,200 posts each! Crazy huh? It was always a challenge to pick our favourites, and looking back into the past editions, some blogs stood out:

Blogs with the most photos chosen: Tanama Tales and What a Wonderful World
Blogs with the most posts chosen: One Tiny Leap, Truly Madly Kids and A Family Day Out
Blogs who have been selected the most overall: One Tiny Leap, Tanama Tales and What a Wonderful World

Many of your stories and tips have helped us with our own trips and inspired us to travel to places we would never have consider before. Several of you are an integral part of our blogging lives and some, we’ve even met in person.
It was truly an honour to host Monday Escapes for over one year, and we would like to thank each and every one of you who have supported us along the way, from our loyal linkers to all the newbies.

It was a tough decision to let go of Monday Escapes, but it’s with great happiness (and relief) that this wonderful community which we built from scratch will be able to continue thanks to four wonderful bloggers. Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to introduce you to your next Monday Escapes hosts:

Sarah from Extraordinary Chaos
Karen from Mini Travellers
Claire from Tin Box Traveller
Lisa from Travel Loving Family

Claire and Lisa will begin Monday Escapes next Monday, 19 September and ask if you’d like to link up any posts that best describe you and your travelling experience, it would be a fantastic way to get to know you. If not, then the usual posts will still be fine!

Stay tuned because they will be in touch with all the regular linkers and will make sure you will continue to have fun linking up with Monday Escapes.

Allane and I wish Sarah, Karen, Claire and Lisa lots of success as new hosts and invite all of you to continue sharing your adventures with the community. We certainly will!

Thank you and do keep in touch,

Ting & Allane
