Book of the Week
"Quite possibly the funniest book you will ever read about family camping trips" - with a review like that from a friend of Team FINDRA, how can we not share the joy?
Whether you're a glamper or a wild camper, a camping veteran or a newbie to the entire thing, this book will brighten your day and you'll either be nodding along or thinking "what am I letting myself in for?"
For the 70s child, summer holidays didn't mean the joy of CentreParcs or the sophistication of a Tuscan villa. They meant being crammed into a car with Grandma and heading to the coast. With just a tent for a home and a bucket for the necessities, we would set off on new adventures each year stoically resolving to enjoy ourselves.
For Emma Kennedy, and her mum and dad, disaster always came along for the ride no matter where they went. Whether it was being swept away by a force ten gale on the Welsh coast or suffering copious amounts of food poisoning on a brave trip to the south of France, family holidays always left them battered and bruised.
After reading this fantastic book, you'll be ready for anything your camping adventure can throw at you!
Alternative Tent Ideas

Does the idea of sleeping on the ground put you off camping? All that potential for leaky tent floors and creepy crawlies may be putting you off sleeping under the stars, so we're loving the look of these alternative tree tents!
Tentsile combines the comfort and versatility of a hammock with the security and multi-person-occupancy of a tent. Our range of suspended shelters are unimpeded by wet, rocky or uneven ground conditions and will literally take your camping experience to a new level!
'Tree tents' are the perfect blend of tent and hammock, and British company Tentsile have a range suitable for all budgets. Check out their range here, and remember that with every tent purchased, they plant 20 trees!
Music of the Week
We’re building a FINDRA Community Playlist over on Spotify, bringing you music of a rather eclectic variety! From classic dance tunes to lesser-known indie songs, we hope there’s something new in there for you. If you’ve got a favourite you’d like to hear in the playlist, drop us a tweet!
There are few things more wholesome than a sing-song around the campfire. A hot chocolate in hand, blanket around your shoulders singing your heart out with your nearest and dearest. Here's one of our favourites to sing into the night, just remember to take your guitar for extra fun!
Whatever you’re up to this week, friends, remember to find your everyday adventure.
Love, Team FINDRA x
