Announcement: June Travel Linkup Topic - Souvenirs!

Today I had visions of drafting eloquent phrases about the breathtaking Scottish Highlands for you (seriously, go now!). Instead I'm running about like a headless chook (apologies for the rough Kiwi phrase) organising, sorting, planning and slightly panicking. You know, the usual.

How about our travel linkup topic for May instead plus a few of the frequently asked questions we get? (Just be warned, there may be a test at the end and it may or may not be Hunger Games style.)

June topic:

Love them or hate them, sometimes buying a souvenir seems to becomes an utter necessity. Fitting a Turkish carpet into flight carry-on, filling your car boot with cakes from their namesake towns, sending bottles of French Congnac or carrying a 3kg wheel of Gouda - you know, seriously important.

What is your favorite souvenir? It could be past, present or future - or have you sworn off them for life? Have you or would you plan your trip around buying one? ~ ahem, guilty over here ~


How to link up your post
Just pop your post up over the first week of the month (the 1st - 7th June), add it to the link up widget found on here, Rebecca's, Kelly's or this month's lovely co-host Jaime at Angloyankophile (who suggested this month's theme) blogs from the 1st.

Are there rules?
There are no rules – basically all we ask is that you check out some of the other cool bloggers that are involved in that months travel link up; make a few comments here and there and tweet a few of the posts out to your followers that you think they will love. It’s a great way to meet some new travel bloggers and share some blogging joy!
Who can join in?
We LOVE new linkers - welcome, welcome! The Link Up is open to all bloggers as long as the post is relevant. Past, present - just go for it. Over a year ago a blogpost went up entreating a group of blog junkies friends to share their travel wishlists for the year ahead in a one-time linkup. Kelly and Rebecca and I had the crazy idea to continue the tradition on with variation of themes, and 13 months later we've been treated to 350+ wonderful blogposts on subjects.

Caught in the act #addict
We're lucky enough to be joined each month by bloggers who live all over the globe: Canada, the UAE, Sunsvall Sweden, Oxford, America, Hawaii, New Zealand, the Arctic Circle, Yorkshire... I could go on! Many of the months have also been co-hosted by terrific travelistas from all corners of the world, bringing their own cheery smiles and hilarious antics to the metaphorical table.
How do I hear about future topics?

Not sure how to reach everyone the best, we regularly Tweet/message/smoke signal the topic out and we send out an email to our regular addicts around the 15th of each month - it's a privately kept list that will never, ever be released to anyone, and all emails are sent to you as a BCC. Let me or the girls know if you'd like to be added to the list, either in the comments below or
via email to adventuresofalondonkiwi @ gmail.com  

* There is no test, I don't really, really don't have the time in the chaos of this weekend......... but feel free to read through a few of our old topics or just take inspiration from them for posts and article - I seriously recommend you browse through our travel linkup archive.
