Nicola, Pete, Lola and Nell want to travel the world with a difference. We hope to get a taste of many countries without adding to climate change (with needless emissions from aeroplanes) or having to waste hours of holiday time in airport terminals. We hope our adventures inspire you to take a Grand Tour of your neighbourhood. This post is from Lola & Nell (currently in the dry using a wi-fi connection at the Rhegged centre in Penrith)
Lola: "Wet camping is very odd, especially if you are by a rising lake like we are (Ullswater, in the Lake District). Every night I go to sleep I worry that the tent will flood! I don't much like going to the loo in the wood because... you can use your imagination. It makes you think what it would be like to live without a permanent roof. I miss toilets, laptops, telephones and beds. Daddy misses coffee."
Nell: "I think it is fun because it is actually quite nice when you have a boat house to go into for breakfast or lunch. It's really good listening to the rain on the tent. We had a BBQ yesterday and I ate croissants stuffed with veggie sausages. We also had chocolate banana and apricots stuffed with chocolate. Mummy says that you have to have lots of treats if it's raining a lot when you camp. I miss toilets, cutlery and plates/bowls etc and a pillow."
