A couple of weeks ago I decided that I was going to take part in this year's A - Z Challenge which runs throughout April, so I signed up and added this blog title to the list. It's mainly just for fun and there are no prizes, but it challenges bloggers to get creative with their thinking and writing and gives them the opportunity to visit and read other people's blogs and leave comments.
The basic idea is that starting on April 1st with the letter 'A' and continuing right through the alphabet a post is written every day of the month except Sundays. Some bloggers will start new blogs especially for the challenge, others will add posts to blogs they already write, and the subjects are guaranteed to be very varied and diverse. As this is a camping blog it goes without saying that all my posts will have something to do with camping - I've already drafted the first three in readiness and I'm hoping to get the fourth one done before I go away for the Easter weekend. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to think of something to write for most of the letters, but the challenge will really kick in when I get to Q, X, Y and Z - fingers crossed that my brain can come up with something suitable. So starting next Monday why not make yourself a brew, pull up a chair and log on to read the inane ramblings of a solo camper!
- 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
