This is my original blog – all my blogs  since I started in 2009 - are here including those from The Ale Archive – all the beers I’ve sampled at home and on our travels since 2012.

Since 2012 most of our travel has involved a caravan. I now have a specific caravanning blog called (Get Your) Legs Down which not only documents all our trips but includes product reviews, site listings, storage locations, mobile service engineers and much more. It too is on Facebook and Twitter.

There’s something I have to tell you…..

It was eight and a half years ago when I started writing a blog – although back then it was really just an email with a few pictures attached, typed on my little netbook and sent out to a dozen people.

I then created a blog called “A Load of Nonsense” and continued to document all our trips away, be they cruises to far flung places or weekends in Margate.

Then five and and half years ago we started caravanning and with our jobs at the school giving us plenty of time off, the caravan trips came thick and fast – and the blog really flourished.

A few years ago we decided to change the name to something more caravan focused – and (Get Your) Legs Down was born. Every caravan trip we’ve taken is on here.

Whilst the blog has brought with it some freebies – mainly in the form of products for review – it has always been a hobby. And I’ve always thought A Load Of Nonsense was still the perfect name for it! Some will doubtless agree….

However, Legs Down is entering a new phase -  I am delighted – and really proud - to announce that we will be providing exclusive content for the website of Caravan insurance specialist Cover4Caravans in the form of written Site Reviews. They will be impartial and comprehensive reviews of not only the site but the surrounding area too based on our experiences, from access to the site to local attractions and yes, pubs too. Obviously!

Director Richard Burgess is a passionate supporter of caravanning and you may remember already sponsors our Twittercamp meets and we’re delighted to be working with him on this.

I’ve always been somewhat envious of those who make money doing something that they enjoy – ok I enjoy driving and earn a living from it, but writing about our travels has always been a hobby, so this means a lot - it really does. The blog will continue in the same format and I’ll be providing links to the Site Reviews that will be on the Cover4Caravans website. You can check the first one out HERE

So, that was our little announcement – and we are looking forward to announcing another collaboration in the coming weeks too. Exciting times ahead!

Cheers for now
