Hello! We’re the Curious Campers… a family of five; two adults, two kids and our beloved border terrier.
Our family holidays are precious, so we search for places that fill our heads with adventure and our hearts with happiness.
A few years ago we bought a caravan, and it has literally changed our lives.
We love wandering. We’re nosey. We’ve travelled all over the world.
Pre-kids, hubby and I travelled a lot. In our late twenties we quit our jobs and plane, train, bus and ferry hopped for a year, whilst backpacking across the globe. We visited India, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Australia, New Zealand, Bali… I could go on. We lived in the back of a van (and I mean one more closely associated with a builder than a camper), teeny tents, decks of boats, sleeper trains and sleeping bags under the stars. We were happy to lay down our hats almost anywhere and call it home.
But, we’d barely scratched the surface of our beautiful UK.
So when my husband rather boldly proclaimed, ‘Over my dead body… we are not having a caravan’ it’s obvious what would happen next.
Having ‘camping’ camped for years, our kit needed an upgrade, and we now had two kids and a terrier to consider. Plus, having been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and with the after-effects of chemo and radiotherapy to throw into the mix, we eventually agreed a caravan was just what we needed to keep up with our travels.
So a couple of years ago we splashed out on van #1, tiny and old (very old!) and straight away we were hooked. Since then, we’ve upgraded, and van #2 comes out with us, wherever we go.
Having kids and our caravan has reignited our love of adventure.
Curious Campers is a travel blog for families that love their caravan, just like us.
We are champions of caravanning and shine a spotlight on beautiful and unusual places that we and our kids find fascinating and fun, sharing tips we’ve discovered along the way.
So when we go somewhere a bit special or find something we like, we write about it, because we want to share that joy with other people, just like you.
