It is our first #TravelTuesday for February and I have so much I want to share with you today! First off we have a brand new button for 2014. I wanted something new and bright and hope you all will enjoy a little something different to share on your Travel Tuesday posts and blog sidebars. Want to grab the button? You will find the button code below in this post.
Next I want to welcome not one but two co-hosts to Travel Tuesday! Due to the interest that showered in from the co-host search I decided I could not limit this opportunity. In response I have added Tina and Melanie to Travel Tuesday for the next three months. After which time I will invite another two co-hosts for the following three months. Both Melanie and Tina have included separate shout outs to participants in last week’s Travel Tuesday link up. Check out their Travel Tuesday posts today to see which posts they specifically enjoyed from last week!
Themed Travel Tuesday posts have moved from the first Tuesday of the month to the last Tuesday of the Month. Melanie will be selecting our theme for February, Tina will be selecting our theme for March, and I will be selecting the theme for April.
Every week I want to make sure to spotlight a different post that caught my eye during the #TravelTuesday link up and both Melanie and Tina will be doing the same on their blogs too. One of the things I love is to learn new things about places I want to visit. Sometimes I do not have to travel far and for me that is the case with Erin’s post London’s 10 Best Kept Secrets. One of these secrets is Daunt Books, to which Erin states, “This Edwardian-era bookshop is the perfect escape for any literature lover. The books are arranged by country allowing you to travel the world without ever leaving the shop“. Sounds like a perfect place for anyone with wanderlust and a love to explore.
Speaking of London I think my favourite thing is to soak up all the examples of history and tradition. As a military brat and former military wife, I kinda have a soft spot for uniforms. So my ‘favourites from London’ Include the uniforms of the Yeoman Warders (aka beefeaters) and the royal guards. The Yeoman Warders are best known for their scarlet and gold State dress uniforms which date from 1552. The blue dress uniforms (pictured above) were instated by Queen Victoria in 1858 and are worn for every day duties.
