Welcome back to another Wanderlust Kids linky. Have you noticed anything different? I’ve finally undergone my rebrand from BattleMum to Passports and Adventures. Do you like the new name? BattleMum just didn’t fit anymore and I’m so much happier with the new name. A big thank you to everyone who has let me know they like it too. It means the world to me.
Things have been relatively quiet for us. Alex, formerly known as BattleKid, and I were in Cardiff at the beginning of October for a quick weekend and as a family, we’re returning to the UK next weekend for a quick trip. That’s our only travel plans until the big one in December. Anyway, it’s time for another round of the linky, so let’s get going.
Just a note to say I am trying a new badge out this month. If it doesn’t work or is too hard to grab, just link back to this post via text and let me know you’re having problems. I’ve never had much luck with my linky badge, maybe this one will be less troublesome.
A big thank you to everyone who linked up with awesome travel posts last month. There were some great ones and it was very hard to choose three favourites but here they are.
Feature Post of Wanderlust Kids #16
I had to choose the post linked up by Museum Mum about Top 10 Things to Do in Amsterdam with Kids. Amsterdam isn’t really a city you associate with kids, as was pointed out in the post, but Museum Mum totally changes that perspective with her ideas for things to do in the city with kids, all things they did themselves during their time there. It’s made me want to visit the city with our son.
Special Mention Posts of Wanderlust Kids #16
Jade of Mummies Waiting linked up her awesome post with tips on how to get the best deal for visiting Disneyland Paris. Her tip about finding the best deal across the European sites and then calling the UK hotline and asking to book under the French/German deal was a new one on me and such a great tip. It’s an expensive place to visit so any tips on bagging the best deal are a must!
Formative Adventures linked up their post about Experiencing the Awe of Yosemite with Kids. Having visited Yellowstone ourselves, we’d love to explore more of the American National Parks and Yosemite is top of our list.
Thanks again to everyone who linked up last month. I hope to see you all again with your great kids-based travel posts. This month I am linking up my post about 35 of the Best Castles to Visit with Kids in the World, which was contributed to by many awesome travel bloggers.
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. I’m trying a new badge out as both myself and other bloggers have trouble with the old one. Plus it was time to rebrand anyway. 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.
