Parent Review: Alive & V-Dubbin
The organisers of Alive & V-Dubbin and although they had spent a considerable amount of time and effort setting up, a lot of their hard work was to be undone! From Thursday midday onwards we were constantly watching the weather forecasts and it was NOT looking good!

VW Whitenoise 2012 Review

I have always liked the idea of owning a VW Camper, but we’ll come to that later.

We went along to VW Whitenoise having no preconceptions of what to expect, having never been to a festival of this ilk before. It was quickly apparent that there was a large VW family to which we didn’t feel part of due to not owning a VW yet…  but this didn’t matter a bit to our 3 year daughter who threw herself into the thick of things.

Post Festival Blues

Post Festival Blues… Is it just me?

It was February 2010 and we were finally fulfilling our dream of owning a VW camper. As regular festival goers, my husband and I had decided that we wanted to share our festival experiences with our children. So after spending many months researching VW’s we were finally on our way to view one. That was the day I fell in love with Dolly, we HAD to have her!

VW Camper Van Tent

VW Camper Van TentThe coolest tent at the festival?

If you love festivals and you love retro revival things like old VW’s, or if you just like to be a little different, then you will love this VW Camper Van Tent!  Your tent will be SO easy to find in a festival campsite…

This 4 man tent is a brilliant, full-size replica of the iconic 1965 Splitty, officially licensed by Volkswagen.  It was a huge hit on festival campsites this summer for the lucky few who managed to get hold of one!

Best Campervan Awning… ever!

A circus tent for workshops and the awning as a stall

The Outwell Country Road

Last weekend I used my new awning for the first time – I LOVE IT!!!

I got it from Just Kampers a while back having searched for nearly a year for the perfect awning until I finally settled on the Outwell Country Road. Just Kampers were involved in the design of the Outwell range of awnings so you can rest assured they have been created by people who know a thing or two about campers.

The Camper Van Saga

Our Wedding Day – sweet memories

Why??!!?!

Yup – that’s what I thought when I came back from a weekend away and found Steve had bought an old builder’s van that he hadn’t seen on eBay. I wish I kept the photo – it was nothing too pretty, just an ordinary VW T4 Transporter:  Why???!!!
