Monday Escapes #13We saw record numbers joining in with Monday Escapes last week – I think it has to be the best yet! And the great thing is  – more and more bloggers are joining our community. Welcome to you all.

Allane and I love reading so many different adventures from all across the globe – and from the positive feedback we’ve had, it seems you’re all making new friends, too.

I’m currently in the car on the way to one of my favourite parts of the UK – the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. We’re staying in a little village called Poulton – and the week will be mostly spent exploring the nearby countryside, pubs and local attractions. So I can’t wait to share what we get up to on our return. I just have everything crossed the weather will hold out. As many of you know, we’re a little unlucky on the rain front!

Meanwhile, the fabulous Cathy from Mummy Travels has kindly agreed to take over the reins for Monday Escapes hosting duties, and you can link up all your Monday Escapes posts over at her blog – where she will be revealing our favourites from last week.

Happy Monday all, and see you next week!
