These days we have many options when it comes to seeing the world, but what if you want a more home away from home kind of experience?
Hostels aren’t for everyone, and hotels can often be quite expensive, especially if you have children in tow. If you’re not thinking of jetting off to far-flung destinations, and you’d like to explore a more regional area, how about purchasing or hiring a caravan and exploring completely strings free?
Think about it – you get the freedom of the open road, just like you would on a road trip, but you don’t have to look for accommodation, it’s right there behind you! You can create a homely atmosphere in your caravan, decorating it as you want to and with the comfortable accessories which make you feel relaxed after a long day’s exploring and driving. If you have children, it’s an even better option, because you can allow them to become familiar with the caravan, so they’re far more likely to fall asleep and settle much easier.
Caravanning is certainly on the rise, and with more and more families and groups deciding to travel in the most freedom-inducing type of way, there is a huge demand for caravan accessories and parts. You will need to make sure that you have adequate breakdown insurance, just in case something was to happen whilst you were out and about, and of course you need to take turns with driving if you’re heading over long distances. Other than that, it’s really about planning your route, choosing your own personalised journey, and enjoying it to the max!
Many people choose to hire caravans or RVs and venture off into different countries, such as a road trip around the USA or Australia. This is one of the best ways to see a large country, because there is no planning required in terms of where to sleep etc. Of course, you can’t simply park up your caravan wherever you please, but it is far easier to find a caravan parking spot than it is somewhere to pitch a tent safely! It’s also much more comfortable and far warmer too!
So, if you’re looking for a new way to travel, and you want to enjoy the freedom of the open road, with a homely place to stay literally right behind you, perhaps a caravan road trip should be the next travel adventure on your agenda?
