It's the same story for holidays. I don't know about you but I've wasted my last few holidays by generally taking the lazy option - not going for that hike, not getting a bike, vegetating in front of a screen - but I hope next time will be different.

Dancing with the Maasai

The Mara has long been the image of Africa. It is hauntingly beautiful, wild and largely untamed land with vast, open plains that roll on for hundreds of square miles. I was struck when I first came here by the way the Maasai seem to glide across each blade of grass, their feet barely touching the ground.

Yes there was amazing music, yes there were unbelievable djs, yes the food was incredible. But for me, what made my first festival so brilliant, were these moments of 'festival love'. The sense of community that seemed to flow through and unite everyone there. We were all having the same experience.

31) Spitfires with fireworks coming off their wings that loop in the sky to form a GIANT HEART from their trails as the light fades from the sky: actual best thing ever. 32) A tiny flying-machine thing sprinkling blue lights over your head like something out of WALL-E, blimey, I mean, look at that.

Cycling and Camping Do Work!

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.

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...

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?

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?!

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.
