Just thought I’d let you know what I’ve been up to lately on the BritMums website. I’m still collating their monthly travel round-ups, finding great posts about family travel from within the membership of the community and beyond.
There were plenty of festive trips to choose from: the Christmas markets in Munich and Hamburg, a skiing trip to Austria and a special December weekend at Legoland, Windsor. Parent bloggers also nipped over the channel to Paris and over the pond to Orlando.
Posts were selected during January and included New Year’s Day on a beach in Dorset, a bracing family walk in Wendover Woods and a trip around the Lake District without a car. Further afield, bloggers experienced Iceland, a winter weekend in Seoul and a Wild West American road trip.
Many posts came from family travels during the February half-term holidays. They included a short break to Liverpool, a surprise visit to Disneyland Paris and the Northern Lights in Norway. The Sound of Music tour in Salzburg particularly appealed and, to gain a bit of warmth after these chilly locations, I found some sunshine in Cuba.
On Monday 1 April the next round-up will be published and, as a break from the norm, I have gathered together some posts about cruise holidays, highlighting the Royal Caribbean Family Ambassadors, a group of parent bloggers who have just returned from their fantastic trip.
As we start the Easter holidays, I will be looking for suitable travel posts to include in the next round-up which will be published at the beginning of May. Let me know if you write about your trips, either near or far, or if you spot a post someone else has written which you think should be given a mention.
Right, all this talk of holidays and I really must start packing for our own trip to Scotland. Scotland? In this weather! To think, we very nearly decided on the Canaries….
