So, What did you do over the holidays?

t’s a question that evokes a myriad of emotional responses and one that most junior school children will be asked to think about over the next week or so as they return to the rigors and routines of school life. How will your kids answer? Young kids seem to focus their attention on their most resent experiences. You know the kind of thing, like when you ask them after a day at school – ‘How was your day?’ – and (if you’re lucky!) they restrict their answer to reflect the last half an hour of their entire day.

Wishing all those HiP customers (past, present and potential!) a very merry Christmas. We have never actually celebrated Xmas in a caravan before. We have had other family celebrations in them though. They were wonderful – intimate and memorable. I can imagine Xmas celebrations would be no less festive in a pop-top caravan than with all the trappings that come out for Christmas back at home. Because it’s not so much where you are, as who you’re with that matters.

What makes caravanning so special for you?

If you’ve never tried or even considered caravan hire before, then you’re missing one of life’s’ rare pleasures. It doesn’t matter what your age or what demographic your family consists of, there’s something about ‘life on the open road’ that’s deeply appealing. I have not always been such a huge supporter of caravans. In fact, quite the opposite – I was once one of those people who spoke from a position of ignorance and prejudice. Before I had ever experienced caravanning, I thought it purely the province of the ‘older’ generation.
