Our Blog

We thought it would be nice to start a blog so you can see some of the other things we use our California for. We don't film everything so this seems the perfect place to show you guys some of the other things we get up to.

I know a lot of people will have questions about the paddleboard that we used in our latest vlog so I'm going to try and answer them as best as I can here. But, we will be releasing another vlog showing all the kit you get with this paddle board and our experiences with the board in the near future.

So, down to business!

What is a SUP?

SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboard". So its basically a large surfboard that you can stand up on and propel yourself along with a paddle.

Which board have you got?

I asked for the RED 10'6 inflatable paddleboard as its a brilliant all-rounder board for use on many different types of water. You can check out the board here: https://bit....

Two years ago we borrowed a Motorhome and decided to go on our first camping holiday together to Old Oaks Touring Park in Glastonbury. Little did we realise that this would be the start of California Camping! We were hooked, the campsite was great, we loved travelling in our "home" (even though it was rented) and knew we wanted to continue. A year later we had bought the Cali, started the channel and the rest is history!

We had been sent the new Galli 2 Compact Drive-away awning from Vango and decided the best place to try it out would be the campsite that got us hooked. That campsite was Old Oaks in Glastonbury and we loved it then and we weren't disappointed goin...

I am SO EXCITED to show you the awesome new T-shirts I've been designing recently. This has kept me unbelievably busy and when you look into the details you'll know why.

I am a doodler, always have been and always will be. And I love filling spaces with doodles that show adventures and characters from our travels. So I put this to good use and designed us a T-shirt that would show that love of the journey and not just of the destination. 

They are available RIGHT NOW in our shop! We are emailing out our mailing list ahead of tonight’s live-stream launch (providing we have ok internet at the site we’re staying at).

I really hope you love the design as much as we do. (...

It's no secret that we've been interested in trying out awning attachments for the van. When you've got a dog and it's pouring with rain it would be nice to be able to have a place to dry off before getting back in the van! Not just that but have somewhere where the dog can roam off lead and we can sit and chill undercover but with a great view.

When we were at the NEC Caravan & Motorhome show in October 2017 we checked out the Vango awning stand and they very kindly agreed to lend us one to try out! We chose the Galli Compact II because it's not massive and looks really easy to put up. So this puts that to the test!

Check out the video to see our full review of thi...

Gosh, thats a mouthful of a name isn't it!

But WHAT A SHOW!! So many amazing vans, motorhomes, tents and caravans to see! Some VERY sparkly ones too!

Check out our highlights from the show in our latest vlog. I'd also like to say a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who came over to say hi on the day! I can't reiterate how touched we were by the amount of you coming to chat to us and telling us your travelling stories. You're all so inspirational and we're going to keep doing our best to get out more videos for you! We were completely overwhelmed and shattered by the end of the day but it was totally worth it. Amazing show and amazing people. Check it out!

So you want to make cupcakes in your Campervan? 

Only got a hob?

No oven?


Now, if you've watched the video you'll hear me mention that I used to make cakes as one of my many jobs. I even made my own wedding cake which was a lot of pressure but still very enjoyable (also saved me a lot of money!). 

I love making and decorating cakes and despite it being a job for a while it didn't take away the pure joy of cake making for me. But I obviously had the dilemma of how could you make them in a van?

The solution was simple really, The Ridgemonkey XL!! http://amzn.to/2B1PXAX is the link to buy one if you're interested. It works in a very similar way...
