What do you like the most of caravanning?
The escapism of the normal routine of life. We like that we can take it anywhere yet still surrounded by our all-familiar bits and pieces. I love the precious stripped back family time it gives without the everyday interruptions of life. It is our little tin home of family fun time!
What has caravanning meant to you during the pandemic?
It has been a life saver. A place of hope and sanity. To be able to explore the great outdoors in between lockdowns last year has played such an important role on all our mental health as a family. Our Discovery has given us happiness amongst really hard times and normality in between unprecedented worrying times. We feel extremely lucky to be owners of something we have been able to escape to and gave us something to be able to enjoy life outside of a pandemic.
Have you been using your caravan during the lockdown at home?
Unfortunately, not as it is in storage. But we are missing it very much.
What are your plans for next year? Where would you like to go?
We have a trip to Sandringham booked in April and we are all fingers crossed that it will still be going ahead. The rest of this year, we are waiting to see what the pandemic brings regarding booking more trips. Next year, we hope lockdowns and face masks might be a thing of the past (wishing thinking) and hope to do what we originally wanted to do when we bought the caravan and take it on a trip in Europe. We are hoping to visit France, Belgium, and Sweden. Our boys have never been out of the country yet, so this is something we are really looking forward to one day.
