If you are thinking of getting a campervan or already have one – whether it’s VW size or a more spacious motorhome – I hope you’ll enjoy reading the mini adventures of me and my partner, Steve.
Our maiden year of campervanning took place with the help of our Autosleeper Flair which we bought back in August 2009. And the aim of the blog was to share some of our funny stories, reflections, impressions of our destinations, as well as to pass on any tips we picked up along the way.
The blog sprang up from my itchy-footed enthusiasm, as well as my enjoyment of writing & photography. And I’ve now published a book named after the blog (err… or was it the other way around?… Anyway, see THE BOOK tab for info on that).
Since our early adventures, we let go of our trusty old Autosleeper and decided on a more compact & economical Romahome. Unfortunately, the ‘Tardis’ motorhome we hoped one day to own never materialised (ie one that’s small & easy to manoeuvre on the outside whilst having pots of room on the inside).
Updating this now in 2016, we’ve now sold the Romahome and have been ‘footloose & fancy free’ as far as campers are concerned this summer. But we’ve still had wheels beneath us, because we decided to spend some hassle-free quality time together hitting the trails on our bikes instead. I probably shouldn’t admit to this, but after all the packing we’ve done over the years (unpacking is actually the worst for me!), it’s actually been quite liberating to only have to stick our bikes, a flask & sandwiches in the car before heading off.
As you can probably guess, I won’t be travel blogging for the foreseeable future, but I’ve left this blog running for those who’d love to own a camper, or are just getting ‘on the road’. The blog is packed with info & pix for you to pick through, so hopefully there’ll be something to help or inspire along the way.
Despite the above, I do post now & then with news & offers on some of my books which have a campervan/campsite theme – namely those in the Campervan Bushman Mystery Series and the Tales from Corny Cove series. So if you’d like to pick up those, feel free to subscribe to the blog. You can also LIKE the Campervan Capers Facebook page to pick up posts on there!
I hope you enjoy reading!
