Time Traveller: The Travel Bloggers Linky


Time Traveller - Travel bloggers linky

A Time Traveller is someone who can move between different times in the past and the future.

Is that you? Do you think about past holidays that were really good fun? Do you think and plan future holidays? I do, I dream of the day I can take the girls to Disney in Florida, I’ve already told you about my Mexico dream and a secret desire of mine is to one day trek Machu Picchu.

I have a bucket list as long as the Mississippi, which I hope to sail on one day and basically cannot get enough of seeing and experiencing new places.

But one of my favourite pastimes is to go through photo albums and flick through the hundreds of photos of places I have been too, food I have tried like the Oysters in France – possibly not my most becoming photo, they were very salty.

Since becoming  a blogger I take even more photos, there’s a cloud up there somewhere with my name on it groaning at the weight of images I save for future blog posts that somehow in the busy family/work life get forgotten. I keep meaning to write them up so I am setting myself a challenge.

Write about one travel related experience a week.

The Time Traveller Linky

Then I got excited because I imagined that there were lots of other bloggers out there with tons of material to write up like me, days out (I have three posts waiting to be completed for over a year), the fabulous family holiday that never got written up, even places you went to before you started blogging. I really must tell you about Key West in Florida and all my Italian posts still waiting to be written up.

If this is you then join me. You don’t have to do one a week – that’s for me to push myself a bit but feel free to join me if you need pushing too.

Thursday will be the day as it allows for some good reading time over the weekend

The rules are very simple

  • Your post must be travel related. It can be a day out, a weekend away or a longer break.
  • You can use posts from your archives or write something new.
  • You can write about places you visited before you started blogging, scan the photos, re write and relive the experience, tell us all about it.
  • This Linky is about sharing, please don’t dump a link and run. Read some posts, leave a comment on them. I aim to visit everyone who links up, be patient as I will fit my comments around my family and work.
  • Please leave a comment on this post.

I’ve made a pretty badge for all Time Travellers that I welcome you to use on your blog but it’s not compulsory

Time Travellers

Now for the link up. I have chosen a thumbnail so you can use one of your photos and here’s the first link, welcome to the Time Traveller’s Club

    What a lovely idea! I love looking over old pictures and the kids are always digging in the photo box and laughing over memories!

    • April 2, 2015 / 10:15 AM

      I love visiting my mum’s and going through our photo albums, holidays really are the best times for families and it’s so lovely to look back on them too. Thanks for joining in xx

    I too have a stack of posts I’ve been meaning to do. Hopefully this will help nudge me in that direction. Until then, I’ve linked up one of the posts from a trip I took to Istanbul. Istanbul is in the news a lot lately for political reasons. It’s easy to forget what an amazing place it is to visit.

    • April 2, 2015 / 10:15 AM

      Thank you Jen, I’ve never been to Istanbul so I will enjoy reading your post and discovering more. Thanks for joining in

  3. April 2, 2015 / 8:42 AM

    What a wonderful idea! I’ll be here every week for a bit, as I have tons of travel posts from the archives – and hopefully will be writing more over the next few months! My first is one from years ago (hence the smaller pictures than usual) – our self-catering break in Andalucia, Spain.

    • April 2, 2015 / 10:19 AM

      Ohhh I can’t get enough of Spain, we’re off to the Costa Calida very soon and i would LOVE to visit Andalucia one day, the closest I have got so far was interviewing Antonio Banderas *sigh*
      Thank you for joining in, I look forward to reading more of your adventures.

  4. April 2, 2015 / 11:29 AM

    I’m feeling inspired to write up some posts already, but for today I’ve linked an older one that makes me hungry every time I look at it – looking forward to reading some lovely posts and seeing what you get up to too!

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:02 AM

      I loved your post and that food was delicious to look at, thank you so much for joining in. I must get cracking with my posts now :)

    I try not to think of the past as makes me so upset the future is the best and positive.

  6. April 2, 2015 / 9:59 PM

    Great idea! I’ve dug out a very old one. :)

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:04 AM

      It’s perfect Joanne, thanks for joining in, that’s a fascinating fish trail, what a great idea to see a city.

  7. April 2, 2015 / 10:21 PM

    What a great idea for a linky. I’ll have to go through my posts an see what’s suitable to link up.

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:05 AM

      Come on Ness, what you got to share? I’m curious now to see.

  8. April 2, 2015 / 10:23 PM

    Great idea – it’s got me thinking about old posts and trips! Went with one from 2003!

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:05 AM

      I loved it Sarah, thanks for joining in. Sandy Balls is such an excellent family destination too.

  9. April 2, 2015 / 10:33 PM

    I love this idea…I’ve linked up and will be back over the weekend to read as we’re travelling right now so don’t have too much time. Think it’s a great idea for a linky though x

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:07 AM

      A skiing post – fantastic! I miss skiing in my life, not been for years now but looking forward to going again someday.
      Enjoy your trip, I look forward to reading about it.

  10. April 2, 2015 / 11:16 PM

    What a brilliant idea. I love travel. Will find an old post to start with but then look forward to writing new ones… we are off to Florida VERY soon, yipppeeee! :)

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:08 AM

      Oh lucky you! I can’t wait to hear about your Florida trip and thanks so much for linking up, so many dream destinations to consider. one day Steph, one day I’ll get there. :)

  11. April 2, 2015 / 11:53 PM

    I love this idea Mari, we are often out and about and with lots of trips planned i can now share them more! ;-)

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:11 AM

      Perfect, I’m so pleased you like the idea and thanks so much for joining in. I loved reading about your sailing adventure, what an experience! Already looking forward to the next one.

  12. April 3, 2015 / 8:57 AM

    A nice linky idea – I’ve added one of my posts. We love planning holidays even if sometimes they are for years in the future.

    • April 3, 2015 / 10:21 AM

      I’m constantly planning and dreaming Erica! I love family time and seeing new places too.
      thank you for joining in Time Traveller, hope to see you back soon

    • April 3, 2015 / 5:40 PM

      I LOVED reading your trip to Key West, especially as I have been there too, actually it’s one I need to write up *adds to list* Thank you for joining in

  13. April 3, 2015 / 10:59 AM

    Love this idea Mari! I always enjoy reading bloggers experiences of different places xxx

    • April 3, 2015 / 5:42 PM

      Me too Mrs Syder, it’s been a fascinating read so far, I’ve been to Key West, Sandy Balls, Istanbul and Iceland.
      I really enjoyed your Cambrils post as we have been there about 5 years ago and loved it, it brought back memories and your photos are gorgeous. Thanks for joining in

  14. April 3, 2015 / 1:30 PM

    I love this linky as it provides me with lots of reading material and inspiration for future travels.
    With best wishes from Italy :)

    • April 3, 2015 / 5:43 PM

      Thank you so much for adding your fabulous Venice post, you have made me want to book up flights!
      Your descriptions and photography are beautiful, I hope you’ll join in again sometime.
      Ciao ciao

  15. April 3, 2015 / 2:17 PM

    Looking forward to reading about your Italian adventures and seeing the images.
    Will be back to link up too!

    • April 3, 2015 / 5:44 PM

      Ohhh have I inspired you Mary Louise? I hope so, I look forward to reading one of your posts.

  16. April 3, 2015 / 2:40 PM

    A great idea, Mari. For now I will include a post from the very beginning of my blog when I was purely writing up old holiday diaries. It never received any comments at the time – very few of those early posts did. It’s got me thinking about all the trips even pre blogging that I can bring to life.
    I can’t seem to get the badge to work. Is there a code to put in? I right click on the image but don’t know what to do next!

    • April 3, 2015 / 5:45 PM

      The badge needs fixing so please don’t worry about that, I’ll get round to sorting it out at some point. The important thing is people are joining in and I really enjoyed your Iceland post, so funny. You had me giggling all the way through, Golden balls :D
      Thanks so much for joining in, I like the idea of giving the archives another lease of life, let’s hope it works!

  17. April 3, 2015 / 3:09 PM

    What a lovely idea to have all the travel posts in one place. I love linkys.

    • April 3, 2015 / 5:46 PM

      Thank you Nayna, I must admit it’s been a fascinating read today.

  18. April 3, 2015 / 6:40 PM

    Love this idea, we had so many great holidays before children, and before blogging! All my old photos are still in boxes (even though the container with all our worldly belongings arrived last summer…!!), this is a good excuse to hunt them out :) In the meantime, I’m going to have a look through my archive! #pocolo

    • April 4, 2015 / 8:52 AM

      It’s the perfect excuse isn’t it? Nothing nicer than going through old photos with a cup of tea as it always takes longer than you expect.
      Thanks forpopping by and hope to see some of your posts one day.

  19. April 3, 2015 / 10:19 PM

    This is such a great idea for a linky Mari. I’ll set aside some time to add some posts. x

    • April 4, 2015 / 8:53 AM

      I’m gald you like it Liz and look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  20. April 4, 2015 / 4:50 AM

    Oh I am so glad I found this, I have started my weekly travel write up to chronicle the toddlers adventures before I forget them all.

    And have started a featured blogger series….hint hint ;) will link my latest featured blogger Travel with Me piece now.

    Did I already say I love this?!


  21. April 4, 2015 / 9:27 AM

    What a lovely idea. This has made me to think back about days out that remain unwritten. Enjoying trips down memory lane. Thank you

  22. April 4, 2015 / 9:31 PM

    What a lovely idea, I don’t think I have many travel posts I’ll have to go nosing :) x

  23. April 5, 2015 / 7:34 PM

    Fantastic idea Mari thank you so much for hosting!

  24. April 5, 2015 / 9:42 PM

    Firstly I have to say thank you SO much for linking to #PoCoLo – I was so chuffed to see you link up. This is a fantastic idea – and I will be along a bit later with one of my travel posts – as well as tweeting out a link for you. I will be back :) x

  25. April 5, 2015 / 11:50 PM

    Such a lovely idea, I’ve a couple already written with more to come. Must remember to link up when on my laptop (can’t do on my phone for some reason)

  26. April 6, 2015 / 12:29 PM

    Great idea for linky. Bookmarking for future reference.

  27. April 6, 2015 / 1:17 PM

  28. April 7, 2015 / 10:59 AM

    What a fab idea for a linky, I’ve linked up & shared on twitter! I aim to get round & comment on a few after class this evening :) x

  29. April 7, 2015 / 4:18 PM

    I literally have a million and one travel posts on my blogs from 5 years living as an expat in South Africa and now in Dubai. From camping at Kruger and with dogs to markets and movies for days out. I look forward to linking up weekly, thank you for hosting

  30. April 10, 2015 / 12:00 AM

    I have lots of half written posts too and my list of places to visit is very long as well. Lovely idea.

  31. April 13, 2015 / 6:37 PM
