I've not shown you my favourite Cheltenham shop window for a while - so here it is. The display at White Stuff, on the Prom, is geared up for the summer holidays that are rapidly approaching. They are highlighting a great British institution - caravanning.
What makes perfectly normal people take loads of stuff from their house, cram it in a giant tin can on wheels, tow it behind their car for miles and miles, and then live in it for a week, normally in the rain?! I'm not adverse to a caravan holiday myself, but its got to be one of those permanent ones on a holiday site, near the sea. All mod-cons, spacious living, built in toilet and no towing hassle. When we were kids most of our family holidays were spent down in Devon and Cornwall in caravans, and I've had a few holidays in them as a grown up. But with lots more alcohol!
All this brings me nicely to asking a favour of you, my dedicated visitors. I'm off on my holidays next week (Greece. No caravan!) and I wonder if any of you would like to lend me a photo. I'm planning to do a series of posts of other places. You'll get full credit and a link. My email is in my profile. I look forward to hearing from you!
