Travel Linkup

Not content with just blogging on our own blogs, for three years Kelly from Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes, Rebecca at RunawayKiwi and I lureda bevy of other beautiful bloggers to share their travels, trials and triumphs in a monthly roundup based on a loose theme.

Since then, my original partners in crime have retired, and Angie at SilverSpoon London and Jessi from TwoFeetOneWorld have volunteered their time and social media addictions to help spread the Linkup love.

From the 1st to the 7th of each month a fresh batch of fantastic tales are spun and added to our linkup pages, and we've recently started to feature a guest host to keep the mix even more exciting!

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 1,000+ wonderful blogposts based loosely on a monthly theme.

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 to the metaphorical table.
