Well hello! It’s been a while (I think I say that every time I post, they’re so few and far between!) For anyone who may still be reading, I hope life is treating you well; despite all the challenges.Continue reading
Cheddar Bridge Touring Park – the prettiest campsite in the UK?
Back in June we went away for a long weekend for the husband’s birthday.Continue reading
Why do I love campervanning?
If the definition of a holiday is an escape from your everyday life, then campervanning is certainly that. But not in the way you may think…Continue reading
When did “being human” become a bad thing?
I’ve been despairing of certain elements of the population for a while – we all know that social media gives the scourge of society a platform to peddle their sub-human beliefs – but lately things seem worse than ever, if that’s possible?Continue reading
Hey! It’s been a while. I can’t believe I used to blog a regularly as I did – sometimes every day! Where did I find the time or things to talk about? I thought a chatty catch up might be a good way to get back into things, and hopefully it won’t be another two months until my next post!Continue reading
Campervanning at Durdle Door Holiday Park
When we bought our campervan, we talked about places we would like to visit, and one that we both agreed on was Durdle Door in Dorset.

There’ll be no boozy Easter drinks with friends. Our favourite restaurant won’t open for another 7.5 weeks. Holidays are up in the air.Continue reading
Surviving lockdown 3
In a case of stating the bleedin’ obvious, lockdown 3 is a real drag. Although it’s only officially been in play since early Jan, I have felt locked down since early November.Continue reading
How will you be spending Summer 2021?
Obviously this is a rhetorical question right now! Lockdown shows no signs of ending, we’re all on tenterhooks to see what the government does next, and there has been no real mention of tourism when talking about easing of restrictions (although bumbling Boris alluded to “a great British summer” last week – so that’s put the kiss of death on things – and the transport secretary has warned against anyone booking holidays right now, which is a kick in the teeth).Continue reading
A weekend in Chepstow
As difficult as it is to remember, or even imagine, stuck as we are in the depths of lockdown 3 with no sign of improvement in the short term, there was a brief interlude last year when the country opened up a little bit and we could get out and about and actually go places.Continue reading
