Camping holidays

I have been getting over excited about the idea of camping with MK and J for our summer holiday. The original plan was to stay in Denmark for the summer and have a cheap holiday as we have already paid for our flights to the US for Christmas so that will be our expensive trip for the year. However, typically for me, I have expanded the scope of the cheap, stay home holiday.

Firstly it seemed logical that camping would be cheaper than renting a summer house. Well this may be true until you add up the cost of all the gear that we don't have.

Secondly, staying home is cheaper than travelling to say the South of France. Again, true until you decide to take a ferry half way up Norway. (Which is in itself an expensive country)

So there we are as MK has just pointed out to me, we have already planned to spend most of a new kitchen on our cheap holiday.

Maybe I need to got back to the drawing board...

    I know a cheap hotel in Bournemouth.
    Hollylands available with vacant possession for 2weeks?
    Off to see P Jessie, Gina & Oscar.

    As one who visited Norway in 2005, was amazed to find their national delicacy, if the leaflets are to be believed, was merely a hot dog in another name which was filling and uber cheap and which requires a minimum of catering equipment to prepare.To Witty Retro Male, I had just spent the day,(well at least an hour) working in Asda, where I was greeted and met by a Wierd Retired Man with the verbal skills of a two year old - Wal-mart has a lot to answer for.
