Annas Campervan Adventure

It's Anna's turn to do a blog post today and this is a fantastic idea for a holiday or honeymoon. Over to her, campervans here we come!

A few weeks ago my husband James and I had our early summer holiday in sunny Cornwall. We've done lots of camping/ festivals in the past and have always admired beautiful VW campervans on our travels. Alexi (Alexandra) had a classic VW beetle when we were at uni together - so we decided it was time to give it a go.................
We found O'Connors Campers online and loved the fact you can hire a fully equipped camper from their individual profiles. We chose an amazing 1965 split screen called Barbarossa. 
The week was so much fun, we stayed at a different campsite each night and covered over 300 miles of windy country roads. The English weather was kind to us,  we enjoyed long beach walks with Scrumpy (our Parsons Jack Russell who loved the van too) and great food and drinks in the evenings.

Barbarossa was full of 60s charm and character, his interior was just up my street, a perfect mix of original features and sympathetic modern touches - just like our dresses some would say :)
We were particularly taken with his quirky little windows (imagine making curtains for them) and the full length roll back sun roof. I'm told he is a popular wedding car - now that's an idea ladies, no worries about fitting your dress in a gorgeous van like this!

What more can I say, but, I WANT ONE!!!!! Here's some pics xxx To hire check out O'Connors Campers
