Monday Escapes #31

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter break. We didn’t venture too far – but made the most of the sunshine on Good Friday and enjoyed a Easter Egg hunt trail. Not that Monkey needed any more chocolate treats – our house is positively groaning with confectionary at the moment!

It’s also the time of the year where I am asking for nominations for two of the biggest parenting blogging awards in the UK. I must admit, I wasn’t going to enter at first, however, my competitive nature took over… so – this is my one and only ask. If you feel My Travel Monkey is worthy of a nomination then I would be ever so grateful if you would vote for me by clicking on the badges below- and entering https://www.my-travelmonkey.com in The Best Family Travel section for The MADs, and The Travel Category in The BiBs. I appreciate you sparing a few minutes of your time. Thank you so much.

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 one post/photo – old or new.
• 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.

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.
