Welcome back to another Wanderlust Kids linky.
I have a big announcement before we get started with this month’s linky. December 2018 will be the last Wanderlust Kids linky round-up. In January I will do the usual round-up and the link-up will become an open linkup but there will be no more round-up posts going forward. Why you may ask? Well, I am privileged to have been asked to become a co-host of the Fearless Family Travel Linky by Leona of Wandermust Family and Jenny of TraveLynn Family. I am joining along with Nicky of Go Live Young and the Fearless Family Travel Linky will have four co-hosts, each taking a turn to not only host the linky.
I am thrilled to become part of the team and as a result, Wanderlust Kids is effectively going into retirement. I just won’t have time to run both. So, while the Wanderlust Kids linky will remain open with no end date, just in case anyone wants to link up, I will be found over on the Fearless Family Travel linky and I do hope you will come join in, especially if you haven’t joined in before. It’s a great linky and one I’m proud to be a co-host of from January.
As we speak, the Passports Family are getting ready for our very big trip to Lapland and I can’t wait. Without further ado, let’s get going with this month’s linky.
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 #17
While there were some great posts linked up last month, my favourite was from A World of Travels With Kids. They linked up a fantastic post about family-friendly things to do in Western Australia. From things to do in Perth, to day trips from the city and beyond, I never knew it was so family-friendly. Hence the reason why it is my featured post this month.
Special Mention Posts of Wanderlust Kids #17
Jenny from TraveLynn Family linked up a great post about the best age to travel with kids. It was refreshing to read that everyone thinks travelling with kids gets easier with each passing year.
And Bambini Travel shared some amazing things to do in the Twin Cities of St Paul’s and Minneapolis. From where to stay, where to eat and things to do including a zoo, parks, the Mall of America and plenty of museums, these cities have everything to offer families.
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 it seems only fitting, considering where we are going, that I link up my What to Pack for Lapland with Kids post.
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. But as mentioned, this is the last month, so January’s roundup will be the last post of this kind.
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.
