Debbie Does Camping

IMG_1536This past weekend McD & I packed up our car and headed to the South Downs for a weekend in a field… My prior experience of camping is restricted to my Duke of Edinburgh expeditions undertaken during my school years and more recently 5 consecutive years of Glastonbury Festival’ing’, both of which obviously offered valuable experience I was able to draw upon ;) Continue reading
