It’s a bit later than usual, but the sun has finally shown its face here in Wales. Summer for me means, among other things, one of my favourite times of the year – camping season!
There are no definite camping trips planned for this year yet, but I have the tent, sleeping bags and camping gear all ready to go at a moments notice. To celebrate this great British past-time, I thought I’d share with you some posts about my camping experiences in recent years.
What I love most about camping is the peace. When you’re away from all the gadgets and distractions of the modern world, you pay attention to things that you wouldn’t normally notice, like the waves crashing over the rocks or the exact moment that the sun drops behind the horizon and your world turns a little bit cooler. The peace clears my mind. I find it’s a great time to write. All I need is my picnic blanket and a pen and paper. I usually keep my juggling equipment close to hand for when I have writer’s block. I find juggling a great way to relax both physically and mentally. My camera is always nearby too, ready to capture those fantastic landscapes that the weather allows you to see for a few fleeting seconds. Here are some of my shots from past camping trips in the UK.
