"What a trip!

This was the first night of our month long adventure around the South of France. As the light was changing we were on a mission to find the perfect spot. Annoyingly obsessive about these matters, the pressure was on.

As Alice and I climbed the famous Col de Tormalet, featured heavily in many a Tour De France, I decided to take a random track leading away from the main road. Hoping not to bump into any French farmers, we trucked along literally driving through the clouds. There was a clearing ahead - flat land, running stream, and a view down through the mountains.

Carefully reversing to ensure the tent door would face perfection and minimizing cow pat contact, we turned the engine off. The tent takes about 10 minutes to set, 20 with beer in hand. Within minutes we were surrounded by inquisitive cattle with their musical bells. 

What a night, I couldn't recommend a roof tent setup more!

Keep on camping!"

The Slot Canyon at Anza-Borrego State Park was an optimal campspot for viewing the Perseids Meteor shower.

This impressive shot was taken at Col de Tourmalet and provides plenty of inspiration to explore the camping opportunities in Europe.

Second Beach Sunset

Beach camping in Olympic National Park – if you’ve done it, then you already know. If you haven’t, then picture yourself soaking up that brilliant sunset and you’ll be heading to the PNW in no time.
