By |April 26th, 2016|Blog|Comments Off on Wild Camp 1 in Coldingham / Eyemouth Scotland

We finally did it, our first wild camp and we loved it!

Photos from the NEC Classic Motor Show 2015

By |November 29th, 2015|Blog|Comments Off on Photos from the NEC Classic Motor Show 2015

Actually, I think I will just add photos and talk about what comes back to me when looking at them.

Brockwell Wood Wild Camping North East

By |July 20th, 2015|Blog|Comments Off on Brockwell Wood Wild Camping North East

It’s not often as an adult that you get that childlike rush of happy feelings that seem so frequent in your early years. I did however get that buzz when Julie randomly announced ‘I think we should go to a wild camping site, after the wedding on Saturday’.

My genuine reaction was to say ‘Get In’ […]
