Have you thought of a significant change in your lifestyle enabling you to get out of the “rat-race”? No longer having to get up at 6am to get ready for work, get stuck in traffic as you drive to work spending 90 minutes of wasted time in the car? Well, there are more and more people working from home due to the pandemic and this looks likely to be the norm for many employees.

If you have spent the last 18 months sat at a desk in your 4th bedroom in front of a laptop provided by your employer ably supported by a mobile phone then, potentially, there is no reason why you could not consider doing all those things but from inside a campervan and, at the same time, getting out their to explore this lovely country of ours. If it is not something you can commit to permanently, then why not consider it for a few months?

Nowadays, so many campsites provide Internet connection enabling you to access whatever website you need to as well as numerous apps. Such sites usually provide excellent bathroom and washing facilities. Even if you prefer to do some really wild camping in your campervan and get off the beaten track in some far off, remote places in the UK you will hopefully be able to pick up the Internet using your mobile data.

Can you imagine being able to park up your campervan for a few days overlooking a stunning beach with golden sands listening to the waves breaking while you do your days work? Then, when evening comes, get out the barbeque and cook yourself and your partner a tasty meal including a glass of wine as you watch the sun set on the horizon. Absolute bliss!

With some careful planning, you could spend many months visiting some delightful parts of the UK. For instance, the apple orchards of Kent, the pretty town of St Ives in Cornwall, the delightful small town of Burford in the Cotswolds, drive your campervan through the stunning scenery of Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales, walk along the beach in Filey when the tide is out, visit the fishing village of Craster in Northumberland and cook yourself some Craster kippers and we haven’t even mentioned places in Wales and Scotland.

So, if we have whetted your appetite, do some research, communicate with one or two people who do live in their campervans and consider taking the plunge into vanlife.
