Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us, happy birthday… City Tripping. Happy birthday to us!! Yes, today marks the first birthday of our City Tripping linky. One year ago Cathy at MummyTravels and I delved into the world of linkies to discover more about city travel and create a platform for bloggers to share their city travel experiences.

We have read about cities from all over the world: large ones, small ones, cities we didn’t ever know existed. It has been an eye-opening year. We are so grateful to everyone who has linked up and contributed to the City Tripping community. As a thank you, we have some travel-themed giveaways for you to celebrate this week.

City Tripping First Birthday

We’re each giving away two books from the Lonely Planet range (one for kids, one adult) so make sure you check out MummyTravels’ post too as she’s got a different set of prizes. And we’ve got two £50 vouchers for a photobook from CEWE to give away too – one here, one at MummyTravels so you get two bites at the cherry. Scroll down to enter… and to link up to the linky, of course!

For this week only, we’re both hosting the linky – then back to normal alternating next week. First up, our favourites from last week were:

Kidzania Singapore: Beginner’s Guide to Visiting – Bumble Bee Mum
Neighbourhoods of Venice – Life Long Holiday
Ho Chi Minh: Paris of Asia – A Hole In My Shoe
Sanity Saving Tips For doing London with a Toddler or Baby – Tin Box Traveller

As well as sharing and commenting on your posts, we will also be pinning them on our City Tripping Pinterest board so if you need any more city inspiration, be sure to check it out and follow our Pinterest board featuring past posts. Let me know if you would like an invite to pin on the board.

Follow Wander Mum’s board City Tripping on Pinterest.

What Is City Tripping?

City Tripping is the place to come and link up your city-related travel posts. We want to find out the best of things to do and see in the city, any city in the world, whether you are travelling as a family, a couple or with friends or it’s your home turf. It could be a day out, a review of an attraction, long weekend or sharing your best insider info and hidden gems – as long as it is city-related travel.

How To Join In

– Link up one post – old or new.

– Please add the City Tripping badge to the bottom of the post or link back to either Mummytravels.com or Wandermum.co.uk – the badge code is below

– Posts must be about your travel experiences in a city – any city, from reviews of days out to longer breaks.

– Please share the linky love and comment on the two hosts’ linked posts and at least two others which take your fancy, using #citytripping so everyone knows where you’re visiting from

– Tweet us your links @wander_mum and @mummytravels along with the #citytripping hashtag and we will retweet to our followers

– We’ll be sharing your posts elsewhere on social media – we’d love it if you wanted to follow us there too: Wander Mum (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest) and MummyTravels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest)

– The City Tripping linky will go live every Tuesday morning until 23.55pm on Thursday and will alternate between MummyTravels and myself. We’ll be sharing our favourites every week too.
