- 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
Having finally finished writing about last year's travels and wanting something else to do in the evenings I decided to start a new blog. Although I've written loads about the places I've been to while camping I've never actually written anything much about the camp sites I've stayed on, so prompted by someone at work asking me for details of a certain site I decided that's what my new venture would be - a 'camp site blog' giving details, my personal descriptions, and the good and not-so-good bits of each site I've been to. It's not in any way going to be a comprehensive list of camp sites around the country as with many other websites, nor will it contain comments made by other campers - this blog will only ever feature the sites I have personally stayed on and my own comments about them. It's still very much in its infancy and is subject to a few tweaks here and there but anyway here it is - http://campsiteinsights.blogspot.com/ - have a look, and if you'd like to post any comments about it then please do.
