When Caravanning Goes BAD!

Dog Walking-page-001

They say that a bad day caravanning is better than a good day in the office. While our travels have been largely wonderful, exciting and enriching, every now and again, things do have a tendency to go horribly wrong…

Eviction; ineptitude; collapsing axles… here is a selection of our WORST experiences for you to mock / learn from!

  1. Livin’ the Dream Week 1 – Hare Farm, Twyford – fox poo, ticks & a near death experience. Welcome to our first day of Livin’ the Dream!
  2. Black Monday – Trouble at t’Mill, Lancashire. – our worst day caravanning. EVER!
  3. Welcome Home – Meet the Jobsworths! – how to get evicted!
  4. St Coulomb – Back Home to Mr Cock Up! – “Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” 
  5. Le Cock-Up on the Côte d’Émeraude – how NOT to deal with a list to starboard!
  6. Blighted Back in Blighty – an important lesson…
  7. Adventures Off Grid – want to go off grid? Don’t do it like this! 
  8. Ein Scheißtag – travel broadens the vocabulary – this truly was a sh** day in German!
  9. Ohhhhhhh-ning! – how to trap yourself in a caravan using nothing but rain water!
  10. So. What Did We Learn?! – we made the mistakes so that YOU don’t have to! 
  11. Back in Britain; a Fidose of Reality – Part 1 – our home comings are never without incident – & this was the worst yet!
  12. Back in Britain; a Fidose of Reality – Part 2 – New Year, new start. But the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune were not done with us…!
  13. Operation Overload – A Caravan Catastrophe! – Axl Rows…
  14. Bailey ALKO Axle Problem – the dreaded axle collapse & how to deal with it.


The picture is a postcard by Armand Foster. We love it! Following our run-in with The Jobsworths, it is now displayed in pride of place in the caravan!
