September has just flown past for us. Did it do the same for you? We returned from our Central Portugal road trip and BattleDad was off again to London for work. As soon as he returned it was time to get BattleKid back to school. He’s been back two weeks now and has settled in well. His Portuguese is back in full swing too, which is great.
Anyhow, after a busy month it’s time for another Wanderlust Kids. Thanks to everyone who linked up last month, there were some fab posts to read. So without further ado, lets see who piqued my interest the most.
Featured Post from Wanderlust Kids #15
There were a few contenders last month for featured post but the one that tipped the scales for me has to be Annette from Four Acorns who linked up her post about Four Acorns at the Eiffel Tower. Reading her post has instilled a severe longing for me to return to the French capital and I’m now wondering how I can squeeze in a trip to my favourite city in the world. It won’t be this year but I think next year could be a good time to go.
Annette visited the Eiffel Tower with her Four Acorns after spending time in Disneyland Paris and her tips about prebooking your tickets are invaluable. Do click the link and give her post a read.
Special Mention Posts from Wanderlust Kids #15
With so many great posts linked up last month I have three special mention posts this time around. Firstly, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Melissa from The Family Voyage’s post about visiting Naxos with Kids This little known Greek island sounds like the perfect place for a family getaway.
Secondly, I really enjoyed reading Annabel from Smudged Postcards’ post about the Best Walled Cities in Europe to Visit with Kids. Having just visited Obidos in Portugal, I am fascinated by walled cities and had no idea there were so many in Europe that could be enjoyed with kids. They’ve been added to our ever increasing family travel bucket list.
And last but not least, Jenny from Travelynn Family linked up a fantastic post full of great tips for going on Safari with Kids under the age of 5. As she pointed out, many families, including us, think going on safari with kids should be put off until their older, but she proves us all wrong. So much so we’re probably going to start looking into doing a safari holiday sooner rather than later!
Thanks again to everyone who linked up their post to last month’s Wanderlust Kids. I have enjoyed reading them all and hope to see you all again this month. For this month’s linky I am sharing my post about the Most Affordable Way to Visit Santa in Lapland. We are going this December but have chosen not to use one of the package holidays and are instead DIY-ing our visit to Lapland to save money. I hope it will inspire more families to make this trip-of-a-lifetime a reality.
My ‘Wanderlust Kids’ linky will open from the 1st of each month for you to link up a post, old or new, which involves travelling with kids. It can be a day out, a family holiday, a travel review, somewhere new your children have discovered or a post with hints and tips about travelling with kids. As long as it features kids and is travel based it can be linked up. The following month I will choose 3 of my favourite posts to mention.
So, if you’d like to join in, just grab the badge below, add it to your post and link up your post via the link up button below. Alternatively, if you’d prefer not to add the badge, simply link back to this post.
Please make sure you visit a few other posts that have linked up and leave a comment.
Don’t forget that throughout the month you can use the #WanderlustKids on your Instagram photos which involve travelling with kids. These photos can be abroad, home or days out, so long as they feature your children and have a travel theme attached to it. Each month I will pick my favourites to showcase. I cannot believe how well this little community is growing, we’ve reached 10k in September, and I appreciate everyone who has adopted the #wanderlustkids on Instagram.
And last but not least, I’ve created a Wanderlust Kids group on Facebook. The idea behind it was that not everyone who travels with their kids will have a blog. So, by creating the group we can share our posts and travel tips with non-bloggers, and maybe even help each other out by sharing advice or ideas about travelling with your kids. I am hoping the group will grow and I’d love it if you could join up and add anyone you think might benefit from the group. Feel free to share your travel blog posts there too!
I look forward to reading your posts, maybe gaining some inspiration. And if you’re wondering about what types of posts have been linked up before, just search for “Wanderlust Kids” to find previous linky posts.
