Summer. The time to be outside as much as you can, because lets face it, winter makes us stay in. So don't waste your days wondering what you could be doing, when you can just go out and do it.

Hot Food and Drink Ideas for Summer

Don't know about anyone else, but once the mercury hits above 20 - I shed the skin of a (semi) responsible person and get utterly side tracked by the pursuit of pleasure. That dead area at the beginning of the week (I think they call it Sunday-Tuesday) becomes a gin-sodden round of boozy picnics, 'just the one' after work drinks/dins and pub garden pick me ups...

I have made some pretty big changes in my life recently and, as a result, I like myself a heck of a lot more. I don't take things so seriously all the time and there is a lot more fun and laughter in my life.

One of the simplest, most accessible and most rewarding adventures we can have is Wild Camping. Anyone, regardless of age and ability, can have a go at this and it needn't require great long hike into the remote wilds of the Scottish Highland.

It's Caravan Life, But Not as We know It

I have more than a few fond memories of caravan holidays as a child. I was regularly taken back to nature by my grandparents as we endured seven nights of being rocked to sleep by the wind and seven mornings of trudging off to the shower blocks in our pyjamas.

Why Music Festivals Are The Only Real Connection We Have Left

Festivals, where everyone has the same seats, the same nightly discomfort, the same yearning for discovery, are perhaps the last bastion of connectivity.

It was our own fault that we'd had beans for lunch. And supper. In fact it struck me that beans should never have become a campfire staple. As my son continued to sleep-fart it also struck me that essentially we were sleeping in a highly flammable bag filling up with methane next to an open fire. This not being the most relaxing of thoughts - I decided to get up and douse the fire.

The thought of spending two nights cooped up in a wooden shed didn't exactly put a smile on my face, as my wife suggested we try out a shepherd's hut for a weekend away with our children - but how I was wrong.

Why Go Camping?

Rupert Wolfe-Murray

Hiking and camping isn't so simple. It has taken me a month of trial and (mostly) error to realize that I didn't need to bring anything at all. I could have bought everything I needed in the camping shop by the bus station in Chanea, Crete's main port, where I did in fact buy an excellent sleeping bag and mat.

Three Recent Changes That Have Helped the Caravan Holiday's Resurgence

Chris Mayhew | Posted 07.09.2013 | UK Lifestyle

Perhaps the biggest change that has contributed to the resurgence of the caravan is the recession. British holidaymakers now have less of a budget available for their summer getaways and this has led to more and more people choosing to stay on home turf and enjoy the sun.

My favourite time of the year is fast approaching; knee-deep mud, a legendary line up and traditionally wet weather can only mean Glastonbury is upon us. Of course, just like every year, there's a chance that we may see some sunshine over the weekend, which leads me to the dilemma I have each and every time I pack for a festival. What on earth do I take?!

We are a country of grumps. You may already have thought this to be the case, but now there are hard statistics to back up your suspicions. A new survey for the Camping and Caravanning Club shows that 63% of us feel Britain as a nation has nothing to look forward to this summer, and nearly as many agreed that they have nothing to look forward to personally.

So go on, do something stupid. Take a chance on that tandem skydive, google that slack lining school, splash out on that ice holing holiday and book in that bobsleigh break. It's all covered, although, interestingly, I couldn't find skinny dipping anywhere. Oh well.

Camping: Man Versus Nature

Camping! A battle between man and the elements since time immemorial, a life under canvas as families go back to basics, living off their wits and whatever the land can provide. Just as long as there is an electrical hook-up and decent wireless reception.

Some 'Me Time' Luxury

Nowadays, 'me time' is a real luxury; and the best place to get it is out in the middle of nowhere, without the distractions of phones, emails and televisions. Not all of us are suited to roughing it like campers (i'm definitely not), so that's where 'glamping' comes into play- all the relaxing benefits of camping without the stressful negatives of finding heat, pitching a tent and having no electricity.
