The last blog focused on looking back over the summer and our time on the road, so in the name of equilibrium I thought it only fair to make this latest blog post about looking forwards. We aren’t due to start work again at the campsite until late March, so that gives us roughly 5 months of relative freedom. Our plan was to work enough through summer months this year to save enough money to see us through the winter, working roughly on the same budget we did for travelling at the beginning year which was £200 a week. Luckily, we came in under budget each time, so we were able to put that towards our winter living costs alongside the money we made as campsite wardens.

We don’t have any plans for overseas adventures this year, we won’t be chasing the sun in foreign climes or hiking in snow capped mountains. No, no, no, we will be staying in good old blighty and sticking as closely as we can to the format of seeking out all things wild. Obviously, we will be spending plenty of time with our family and friends in Salisbury, Southampton and Cornwall but that doesn’t mean we can’t still seek out wild things there because there are plenty of untamed spaces and wild beasties in all those locations and all the spots in between.
