    What’s it like to live in Cornwall?

    I have written a number of blog posts recently that I want to share with you, but the problem is, I am always reluctant to actually post them on here (as you can see, I haven’t posted since June 2020!).   As a professional content writer, I guess I should be confident in my work, but I often don’t like…

    Returning to van life during the Coronavirus

    In approximately 17 days (not that we’re counting or anything) we’re going to be moving out of our caravan and back into our van! There are a number of reasons why we’ve been living in the caravan for so much longer than we had planned, but after the government announced that campsites could re-open on 4th July, our little winter…

    One year as Cornish folk

    A year ago, I never imagined I’d be writing this post. When we set off in our camper van last April we had zero plans for the future other than to drive the North Coast 500. Which we did.

    13 ways to keep yourself entertained during lockdown

    The UK lockdown has been extended until at least 7th May and possibly even after that. I think it’s pretty safe to say we all saw that coming. But at this point you may be struggling to find enough to do to keep yourself entertained during lockdown and stay sane.  And while we understand isolation and social distancing are completely…

    How much does van life cost?

    One of the most common questions people have about this lifestyle is how much does van life cost? Well, how long is a piece of string? (Yep, I said it). Frustrating and overused idiom aside, it is hard to put a finite price on the cost of van life, just as it is with normal life. The great thing about…
