About Me

My photo
Hi! I'm Eunice and I live in Bolton, Lancashire, with my two dogs Sophie and Sugar and an assortment of cats - well it used to be Sophie and Sugar, now it's Sophie and Poppie. I first began camping back in 1997 when my then partner took me to Anglesey for my birthday weekend. We slept in the back of the car - a hatchback - using the cushions off the settee at home as a mattress, and cooked and brewed up on a single burner camping stove. The site was good, the views were great, the weather fantastic and I was completely hooked. Following that weekend we got a two-man tent and some proper accessories and returned to Anglesey two weeks later, then over time we progressed to a three-man tent followed by an old trailer tent, then a new trailer tent, a campervan and finally a caravan. When my partner decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the street - literally - in April 2009 and I suddenly found myself alone after fifteen years, I decided there was no way I was going to give up camping and caravanning if I could cope on my own. This blog is the story of my travels, trials and tribulations since becoming a solo camper - I hope you like it

Monday December 24th 2012 - A Very Merry Christmas......

And a Happy New Year to all my blog readers!

It doesn't seem long since this blog was just a vague idea at the back of my mind, but it's well over three years since I started camping solo and over two years since I started writing about it - and in that time I feel I've come a long way and achieved so much, both in my camping and in my writing and photography. And it's good to know that I have so many readers - not just 'followers' who I know about but others I don't know, and in so many different countries too. Sometimes I've wondered if anyone really is reading my posts or if I'm just writing to amuse myself, but then I look at my blog stats and they tell me different - there are some readers out there after all!

So thank you everyone, wherever you are, for continuing to log in and read about my travels, and here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a bright and prosperous New year - I hope it's a good one for all of you!


  1. Happy New Year to you and the dogs Eunice. Here's to a DRY 2013 and plenty of trips!!! Take Care. Michael, Sharon & Paddy xxx


I really appreciate good comments - who doesn't? - but due to a recent tide of spam from anonymous readers all comments will now be moderated, and only those with a direct bearing on this blog will be published. I'm sure my regular blog readers/commenters will understand the need for this - and to anyone whose comment isn't published, you know why.
