TOP ROAD TRIP READS
Whenever I go away on a camping trip I always pack a novel or two with visions of lazy days spent relaxing in my sweet
little trailer. But the reality is that I rarely get that much time to linger what with Pot Lucks, catching up with old friends and
sociable drinks around the fire at night, not much reading gets done and the books usually come home unread. But there
are a few books that I do like to keep in my trailer to flick through for inspiration and ideas and these are my top picks:
My Cool Caravan by Jane Field-Lewis & Chris Haddon
Featuring stunning photos by Hilary Walker, this is one of my
very favorite caravan books ever and was one of the first books
on the subject matter to come out.
