The trouble with Geminis is we are a flighty bunch, get bored quickly, do not like to be tied down to one thing in particular and are always looking for new things to occupy our minds. Oh and apparently we can't stop talking. I'm a Gemini and so is Mark, so throw two of us together and it's no wonder we chop and change our minds like the weather.
Which is why just a few weeks after deciding we were definitely going to buy a static holiday home, we went out and bought one of these instead. A Bailey Pegasus. This is a stock photo, ours won't be ready until June, but this is the model we've chosen.
The more I thought about a static, the more I knew deep down I didn't want to return to the same place week after week. I'd rather 'travel' albeit around the UK, and see different places and experience different things, even if at times, that might just mean a different view from the window.
Truthfully, Mark wasn't convinced at first. Mainly from the work point of view. We've had a caravan before and as much as we loved it, it was hard work. Mind you we had two little ones back then and anything is hard when you're lugging high chairs, bottle warmers, sterilisers etc. around with you. And God forbid you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and you suddenly remember the nappies got left behind.
But life has got easier over the years and we're always open to each others suggestions so we did a bit of homework and were surprised to see how things have changed in the caravan world since we last dabbled, so much so that this has features that can be operated remotely from your Iphone.
So there you have it. Finally, we've made our decision. It's been a bit of a long process, but we got there eventually.
I'm now an official member of The Caravan Club and we've booked our first weekend away already.
