Caravan Love.

For some inexplicable reason I have suddenly become just a little bit obsessed with caravans! It may be because we were watching repeats of One Man and his Camper Van recently…and I do love campers too. 🙂 We have been lusting over camper vans for ages but they are a bit more money than we can afford to spend. So maybe the next best thing is a little old caravan. Maybe we can upgrade our tent to a treasured tin box on wheels. I don’t know why I never thought of it before! Can we? Can We? Can we?………????

My Family holidays in the 70’s and 80’s were spent touring Scotland for one week every year ( always in the May half term) with Dad,Mum and my younger siblings in a caravan. I have fond memories of eating out of tins, smash potato,Mr kipling cakes, Seaside, the sound of rain beating down on the roof and playing card games on the pop up table and falling out of bunk beds. 🙂

Of course the caravans we spent our holidays in were nowhere near as gorgeous as the pictures featured here.Orange and brown patterned curtains anyone?
Maybe I just want to relive old holiday jaunts gone by and this is all a pipe dream , I’m not sure, but the other half says he will look into getting a tow bar! I think I had better start saving the pennies for rainy days…….in a caravan. 🙂

Happy New Year Folks !

  1. They were my childhood holidays too! Dad used to say the sound of rain on the roof was birds wearing boots! Steak and kidney pie in those round flat tins and tinned new potatoes are my food memories. Hope you get your wish…

  2. I’ve been trying (unsuccessflly) to convince the other half to get a caravan. We have a 1952 vintage fairground lorry which we take to steam rallies so I think we definitely need a vintage caravan or showman’s living van to put behind it! 🙂 x
