Camping’s not for everyone. I’ve had negative comments about living together in such a small space, many don’t get it.
If you know, you know. It brings us together and requires special consideration and extra thought for each other. It’s a team effort, we have our roles and there’s no slacking. It’s ingrained, it’s living in a new place to explore, it’s away from home and it’s mostly outdoors.
Our kids started caravanning as babies then we moved to the campervan. Having both in the roof was simple when they were small. Now we need a pup tent for short stays or the drive away awning for longer ones. Introducing a puppy into the family made it even more special with easy walks and even more fresh air and exercise – not to mention a foot warmer.
We’ve had VolksCamper since 2012 and have documented our adventures on our blog. From our Derbyshire base to the South of France we’ve racked up over 100,000 miles and 100,000 memories.
This week we stayed at Trewethett Farm Caravan and Motorhome Club Site, with stunning sea views and the ability to join the South West Coast Path …
The kids are now getting too big for the campervan roof and are starting to plan their own adventures with their friends so I’m not sure what’s next. A two berth motorhome for retirement? A fixed holiday home in a place we’ve re-visited thousands of times? The luxury of hotels and apartments? All these come at a much higher financial cost than just a simple tent and stove in a field.
One thing’s for sure, we won’t stop using our precious time off work to travel and explore. Our time, our health, our family and friends are the most important things in our life and we only get one go at it.
Happy camping to you all ❤️🚐🙏🏻
