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

Wednesday December 31st 2014 - To all my blog readers

Wishing you beautiful moments, treasured memories, and all the blessings a heart can know in 2015

A very Happy New Year to you all!


  1. Happy new year to you! I look forward to seeing where you head next!

  2. Thank you Christine, I hope it's a good year for you and your family, with not too many disasters or injuries :)

    I haven't made any camping plans yet but I'm hoping to go to some new places when I do venture out - watch this space as they say :)

  3. Hi Eunice,

    Ever so sorry for taking this long to get here. I shall blame it on my old computer that needs to be replaced. Darned thing is slower than a parked car.

    A peaceful, positive New Year and may you have some amazing camping adventures.

    Gary :)

  4. Thank you Gary, and I hope you, Penny, Tristan and the wee folks have a more settled year this year :)

  5. And the same to you John, I hope you had a good one.
