Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
Since I was only knee-high to a grasshopper I’ve been camping. I’ve spent New Year’s Eve under canvas in gale force winds, I’ve wild-camped in forests and spent the night before my wedding in a converted black VW T4. As a teenager I preferred living in a caravan to a house so my parents put one in the back yard where I could bake potato’s on a campfire and pretend I lived in the middle of nowhere. It seems I just can’t help myself!
In fact it feels as though I’ve spent my life in pursuit of the ultimate camping experience. You could say I understand the passion… …and as you’re reading this you must understand it too!
Everyone enjoys camping for different reasons, but for most it’s a chance to strip life back to basics, take only what we really need and what’s precious to us, and secure some mind-blowing memories as we go.
‘ Camping ‘ may only be one word but it means many different things to different people.
Whether you’re someone who likes to set off with just your walking boots and canopy, or if you prefer to pack your patio furniture and heater, there will be something for you here to help you plan your next outdoor adventure.
We’re a camping information creator, aggregator, developer and inspirer. Motivated by our own passion to camp we draw on our experiences and that of others to bring tips and trick from across the web, while adding our own secret sauce to spice things up a bit.
We’re not camping experts, we’re camping dreamers… but we’re pretty expert at it!
We’ll be bringing high quality, cool, retro, vintage, funky and eco-friendly inspirations together, and we’ll be dabbling in the big love for camper vans, caravans, tents, gadgets, wild camping and glamping.
There will be tried and tested tips, tricks and information other campers are raving about, fantastic products, practical ideas and things you may not even have heard of. We’ll publish news, recipes, activities and ideas on camping to a budget, while giving tips on what you can forage and make while you’re there.
But Inspired Camping wouldn’t be anything without you and this is why we want to hear your stories, recommendations, knowledge and ideas, so we can immerse ourselves in your inspirations too.
We know it’s a bit like dropping your pants in public but we’d love you to share your inspirations with us. So be courageous… together we’re gonna rock n’ roll!
