Cool caravans

CoverI love camping.  However I am not talking the small tent, one burner and a torch variety.  Oh no,  I like to camp in comfort.  I have comfy chairs, a lounger, gas fridge and a lovely big tent which becomes a home away from home.

At present though I have a yearning for a caravan, and the reason that this has come about is because of this book:  My cool caravan : an inspirational guide to retro-style caravans by Jane Field-Lewis. Filled with the cutest and snuggest little caravans, it is enough to bring out the traveller in all of us.

However the cost of a caravan is prohibitive at the moment so I will be content with my trusty tent.

Discovering a new camping cookbook has helped ease the pain. The camper van cookbook: life on 4 wheels, cooking on 2 rings by Martin Dorey has some great cooking ideas for both inside and out, and a trusty old favourite Blue sky kitchen : creative cookery for Kiwi campers by Nicola Saker is always a good standby.  Damper over the fire anyone?

    My grandfather had a really cool caravan from the 50s or 60s, but it was destroyed in a fire on our farm a couple of years ago. All that’s left is a rusty axle! Such a shame, it was a sweet ride.

    Yes, we had a bubble caravan that my father had built. My mother got rid of it after he died( she always hated camping with a passion and couldn’t wait to see the back of it). I would love it now!
