If anyone had said to me back in January 2016, “Dan, your family will have 10,000 subscribers on a YouTube channel next year that is focused towards the UK caravanning scene” I would have laughed at them from a great distance. But here is the reality: We do and we have. A thank you from me just doesn’t seem to cut this immense milestone, so the only fitting way to celebrate and mark this occasion to to hold a give away.

Holiday Audio books

When away in the caravan there are a number of activities that can be enjoyed to pass the time, unwind or invigorate the mind. For me, its audio books. I love them. For years I have listened to plays, dramas and comedy shows on the radio, but now im moving into the audio book realm too I recently started a subscription to Audible. Where for £7.99 a month I get a credit each month that allows me to download to my phone, tablet or Kindle an Audio Book from over 200,000 titles. The library is vast.
