    As we've said already we woke up the next morning to the freezing cold. Under the duvets in the van it was ok, but the minute you pluck up the courage to get up it is chilly. So much so that Ed's towel and shorts, wet from the hot pools the previous evening, had frozen instead of dried. To make up for this we put a pan of water on the camping gas burner (this place had no kitchen) in the hope of a decent cup of tea.

    When Nature Calls

    Here's a topic not for the faint of heart; nor for the squeamish or easily disturbed; nor is it a topic for those who deem themselves too prim and proper. But it is a topic which everyone must think about, whether you want to admit it or not. Regardless of whether you believe it or not, we all have to go at some point in the day... Even that good-looking guy with the sculpted chest and abs has to let a ...

    ... arrival at the next campground with a break in the weather, so you can set up your tent without it getting too soaked. Then you try to hang what clothes you can in the tent, and the things you can't, try to hang outside under shelter and hope the wind dries it out.
