Monday Escape

Monday Escape: Since Leap Local received so many excellent travel stories, we've contacted the writers of the top 25 pieces to ask if they'd like to share their story in a website series we've called Monday Escape. Each Monday we'll bring you a story that will either make you glad to be at home and not travelling, or one that will have you shopping for flights. Monday Escape started on February 7th 2011.

These stories are the personal opinions, accounts, views, reactions and recommendations of the story entrants (travellers) and not necessarily those of Leap Local.
