Adventures in a VW bus: Part one
At last I have the first of the photos of our holiday to share with you! We rented a classic split screen 1965 VW camper van (named Barbarossa) and drove around Cornwall in South West England, going wherever we fancied each day... what a couple of hippies! ;) Normally I plan holidays to the enth degree, so it was nice to be free and make it up as we went along. Just to warn you all, you will not be seeing any cute, floaty summer outfits or bare flesh in these posts... the week was bright and sunny, but mostly cold and windy. Hence my capsule wardrobe of jeans, scarves, jackets and sunglasses ;)
I've done a mixture of outfit shots and holiday snaps to show over 3-4 posts to (hopefully) keep it interesting! My outfits were pretty dressed down because I had to be warm and comfy for both driving and walking everywhere, plus every item I took had to co-ordinate and fit in a medium sized weekend bag; no luxury of dressing in a mirror either - every girl's nightmare!!! My hair got blown about everywhere we went so I just had to go with the rough n' ready look for the week.
Here we were in a place called Bude on the north coast of Cornwall - if you look at the sea you can see why they hold surfing competitions in this part of the country. The landscape is just stunning as you can see - and it only gets better in the next holiday post! The final pic of Mr. Summers and I is a tradition of ours: for the last seven or eight years we've been taking a photo of ourselves whenever we go somewhere, always with me on the left and him on the right. To watch yourself change hairstyles and age (unfortunately) is both fascinating and a bit scary... maybe one day I'll do a post of the best self portraits of the last few years...?
Happy Wednesday everyone - another post tomorrow!
