A Bongo book by Chris Payne (get it here)

Bongo book by Chris Payne“There’s nothing quite like the great outdoors, that sense of freedom, adventure, and wellbeing. Spending a few days getting away from it all and sleeping under the stars. Appreciating the comfort of your memory foam mattress unoccupied (you hope) back home. Pooing what feels like a brick (because your diet’s consisted of little decent food in the last few days) in a shared toilet block (if you’re lucky) with no Wi-Fi to at least occupy your occupancy of the facilities whilst trying to ‘go’ as quietly and as not smelly as possible. Maybe sitting in a tent or sheltering in a beach side café waiting for the rain to stop, convinced (with that sense of British stiff upper lip and pride) that your family will become a more wholesome unit for experiencing everything good our great Nation can offer instead of spending a fortnight at Disney World.

“So, you can understand our enthusiasm in deciding to buy a Mazda Bongo thus becoming part of a grey imported secret club, cult, sect, which looks beyond those small minor discomforts that merely camping offers and opens a whole new world that is ‘VAN LIFE.’ which includes all the crap elements of camping with the added stress of vehicle malfunction.”
