Life's a beach...(near a campsite)

As I write this blog, I'm sat looking out of my tent towards the lapping waters of a crisp blue loch and a golden sandy beach in Aviemore.

I've travelled to Scotland with my colleague, Senior Technical Advisor Iain Geddes for two magazine features, details of which you can read more about in future issues.

So far our journey has taken us through the Lake District and into Moffat for an overnight rest. It's a delightful little place with quirky shops and plenty of personality to admire.

Off on the road once more...

If you read my previous blog post a couple of weeks ago, you’ll have no doubt read about my excitement following my trip to Manchester to attend the Caravan and Motorhome show.

And I’m pleased to report that the initial buzz amongst members of the public surrounding a caravan or motorhome holiday in 2013 seemingly continues to gather pace, especially given the notable attendance at both the Scottish Caravan Motorhome and Holiday Home Show in 2013 and the Spring Caravan and Camping Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

Having attended both events for a couple of days I can report a sizeable crowd at both venues, with visitors from all ages attending. This can only be good for the industry and hopefully if the weather plays its part, those looking to enjoy a spot of British sunshine.

Warm welcome in Manchester

It’s fair to say that even though 2013 is only a few weeks old, it’s done little to curb the enthusiasm of those looking to enjoy a touring holiday in a tent or caravan.

Having travelled to The Caravan Show in Manchester with my colleague Stuart Almond from the Communications Team, (amid lingering fears of snow and potential traffic disruption), I’m pleased to report that the crowds flocked to the event and clearly it will take more than a little chilly weather to deter those looking to enjoy a great holiday over the coming weeks and months.

And what a great time we had meeting new members who joined the Club at the show. It was an absolute pleasure to say hello to new faces and readers of the magazine and of course it’s lovely to see familiar ones as well.
