Monday Escapes #28

Welcome to Monday Escapes.

Allane and I hope you’re all well and raring to share more fantastic travel stories this week. Before you link up, please could you take a minute to read the below:

It’s come to our attention over the last few weeks that several people aren’t following the Monday Escapes rules. Please read them carefully again. The most important thing is to comment on other people’s posts. The whole point of this community is to discover new blogs and support other members. That’s what makes it a community after all. If you’re popping over to another blog, leave #MondayEscapes at the end of your comment, so this tells people where you’ve come from.

Okay, enough of the stern. We do hate having to do it but we want all our contributors to feel happy.

Back to some of our favourite posts and photos from the last edition. 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.
