City Tripping #38

What’s the difference between the Kent coast and a bus… for me, nothing, it seems. No weekends by the seaside for ages, and then we followed up our Whitstable jaunt with a day at Herne Bay.

The City Tripping Travel linky returns for week 38 with the best city travel blog posts from around the world

The next-door spot along this coast, it had been on my list of things to do, forgetting that Minnie and I can while away hours on a single beach. Herne Bay was no different: after fish and chips by the sea, Minnie borrowed a friend’s net and the pair of them splashed and fished in the shallows (catch: two pieces of seaweed and a variety of stones).

Inevitably Minnie also sat down in the sea and happily drenched herself from head to foot – thank goodness for organised friends with spare clothes. And then ice creams all round.

With rides on the pier and along the seafront, plus a few beach huts to photograph, I managed to squeeze in a slide on the helter-skelter with my daughter – and a rescue mission to the top of the huge inflatable slide when Minnie realised just how high up she was.

So after a taste of the UK coast, it’s back to the cities with this week’s City Tripping linky and a look back at last month’s trip to San Francisco and the Pacific Coast for me. Our favourites from last week are…

A bicycle tour of Soweto – Emm in London

Spirituality in the Baha’i House of Worship, Illinois – Passport Couture

Naples discovered through the five senses – La Brutta Figura

Taipei for Kids – A Million Little Echoes

And a special shout-out to our top commenter of the week – Bumblebee Mum who flew in to first place in a high commenting week – (thanks to everyone who comments, it fantastic to see how many of you are visiting all the other linkers).

Do link up your favourite city post this week too. The rules are below – please do join in with the comments and don’t forget the #citytripping tag if you can (it makes it easier to work out our top commenter, for starters). Here’s how City Tripping works…


What is City Tripping?

Welcome to the City Tripping travel linky which I co-host with the fabulous Wandermum. 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.
