Easy, Spicy Tacos with Lime Mayo that You Can’t Get Enough of…

This is one of those recipes that is so tasty that you’ll need to make extra as everyone will want seconds. You can make a meaty and a veggie version and I encourage you to play with the spice combos to find your personal, perfect taco. If you want to keep it super simple, just buy a readymade taco spice mix in a packet and use that instead.

Does Your Campervan ‘Talk’ to You?

OK, I know that sounds a bit weird but I’m not talking about the van actually saying good morning to you when you wake up (although that would be just brilliant),  I mean communication in subtle ways. Because I swear that our van ‘Big Red’ is telling us what he wants and what he doesn’t want as we continue to convert it. Let me explain…

The New Tipoon Trailer – How Can You Not Want One!

Not a campervan but soooo want one of these – a foldout, grown-up’s Wendy house. Not only is it a really clever use of space design (the bed is king size, what’s not to like!) it is as cute as hell. Could camping be any more fun!
Starts at around £20,000 so won’t be happening any time soon but maybe one day…sigh

QUEST FOR A NEW CAMPERVAN: Good Progress at the New Forest DIY Van Converters Meetup

Yay, good news at last! We made some really good progress on converting our Vivaro campervan,  ‘Big Red’, at a DIY campervan converters meetup in the New Forest in March. We had been feeling stuck for a while but, with the help of the Dorset/Hampshire/Sussex Self-Build Get Together Facebook group, we were able to get some of the more scary things done like, putting a solar vent in the roof and cutting a hole in the side of the van for the hook-up panel. And the great thing is that this has now given us the confidence to try more of the DIY work ourselves and we can see how to do some of the trickier parts as we have our ‘converters eye’ switched on now.
