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 March 23rd 2015 - The A - Z Challenge Theme Reveal

Having taken part in the 2013 A - Z Challenge but giving it a miss last year I've decided to have another go at it this year; it remains to be seen whether or not that's a wise decision. And for anyone who doesn't know what it's all about then this  - http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/ - will explain it all.

As this is first and foremost a camping blog the theme for my Challenge posts this year will be 'places I've stayed at or visited while camping', with each post containing a few (hopefully) interesting facts and snippets of information about each place. And as I've never yet stayed at, or been to, anywhere beginning with Q, U, V or X it will certainly be a challenge to write something beginning with those letters. So - will I succeed or will I fail? Will I see the Challenge through to the end? Hopefully I will, so why not make yourself a brew and log on each day to read what my camping brain has managed to come up with. And if you like what you read then please feel free to make a comment or ask a question - I promise I won't bite!


  1. Sounds like your challenge theme will be full of interesting posts, looking forward to reading them.

  2. I'm looking forward to writing them, I just hope I can make them interesting enough. I've already done the first one but I'm not really happy with it so I may re-write it if I have time.


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.
