Online Travel Blogs

Did you know there are websites that allow you to keep your own travel diary (or travel blog) for free? It’s a fantastic way to stay in touch with friends and family. You can post photos, videos and even reviews of each location.

Where to Find These Sites?

You can simply do a Google search for “free travel blog” to find a variety of websites that will allow you to create your very own personal travel diary online. Alternatively, some websites we recommend are http://www.travelblog.org/ and http://www.travelpod.com/.

Advantages of Keeping an Online Travel Blog

  • There’s something motivational about knowing you can write about your day’s activities and your friends and family will have instant access to your diary. It’s also a great way to wind down at the end of the day, simply taking time to stop and write about your experiences.
  • You actively sort through your photos day by day. We all know how overwhelming sorting through digital photos can be! After all, it’s easy to take hundreds of photos in a single day. When you keep a travel blog, you’ll find yourself sifting through the day’s photos and identifying the best photos you want to share with your friends. It’s a great way to create your best-of-the-best photo album which will be available and easily accessible online.
  • You create memories that will last. When you start a travel blog, you’ll be able to add to the blog over many years. Starting with one trip, or one holiday, you’ll then add more and more. In time, you’ll find yourself looking back over your diary and best photographs and videos and feeling grateful that you took the time to write out your experiences.

Get Started

We encourage you to start your own camping travel blog. We’d love to hear about your campervan experience too, so why not write about what it’s like to take a self-drive holiday in a campervan?

Have fun!

Childhood Camping Memories

We all have childhood memories, but some are more vivid than others. When you take young children camping, especially if they are under 6 years old, you might find they quickly forget the entire experience. If you’d like to make your camping holiday truly memorable for your child, here are 3 activites that are fun and engaging. Each activity is guaranteed to lock early camping memories in for a lifetime.

Memory Maker 1 – Camping with Kids Travel Diary

Buy a heavy duty (thick pages, hard cover) scrap book, some strong craft glue and some pens. During each camping day, collect items to remember each day. For example, you could collect shells, leaves, brochures, rocks, photographs, food labels… pretty much anything you can think of. At the end of each day, take time to write the date and a brief sentence describing the day’s activities. Your child can then glue the day’s found treasures into the scrapbook.

Memory Maker 2 – Video Footage

Video is highly effective at helping kids remember their holiday. Take video footage during each day and play it back to them at bedtime each night. After your holiday, be sure to create a video disk and play the footage once a month. You’ll find your child will remember the holiday easily and will be excited to watch themselves on camera.

Memory Maker 3 – Camping with Kids Keepsake Project

Depending on your holiday destination, you can collect various items which you will use to make a keepsake item. For example, you can collect shells at the beach; then, when you arrive home (or during campfire evenings), you can create a wind chime using sticks and fishing line. Another idea is to collect flowers, nuts, seeds and other plant life. Make sure the items are dry before gluing onto a canvas board. With a little care, your canvas collage will be a beautiful display of holiday momentos and can be hung on the wall with pride once you get home.

Camping with kids is great fun and with a little imagination, you can create memories they’ll treasure forever.

Renting a Campervan Saves You Money

The Cost of Camping

Did you know that a simple tent site in a commercial caravan park can cost upwards of $30/night? If that seems quite expensive, keep in mind you do get access to all the caravan park’s ammenities… including toilet/shower block, camper’s kitchen, etc.

Save Money by Renting a Campervan

The good news is that renting a campervan from CampAbout Oz means you don’t need to rely on a caravan park for your cooking and cleaning. Our vans come with onboard kitchens and some vans include a toilet/shower and more! CampAbout Oz camper van rental gives you the freedom to camp in non-commercial campsites. These sites usually cost less than $10 per night and many are even free.

With a fully equipped van, you’ll be able to stop wherever you like. Power for the onboard kitchen and electronic equipment is easily supplied by the van battery. (Note that If you do decide to stop in a Caravan Park, you’ll have the option to plug the van into the main power supply.)

It’s easy to see how choosing to hire a campervan for your holiday can save you money. You’ll be able to stay in many cheap (or free) camp sites and all the essentials you need will be right at your fingertips.

If you’re thinking of renting a campervan, call us today. We’ve got a great van ready for you!

When choosing the perfect campervan rental, there are many options and choices available to you. Of course, all of our campervans are highly recommended… and we’ve carefully selected each van before adding it to our large range.

So what should you consider when choosing your rental vehicle? Besides the obvious consideration of number of seats, here are a few more things to think about:

  1. Assembling Bedding – some vans (such as our HiTop camper van) allow you to keep your bed made up during the day. In the case of the HiTop, the bed is in the roof area of the vehicle. Other vans will require you to quickly assemble your bed in the evening, which is quite easy to do. In most cases, you’ll simply fold down the seating and insert the supplied wooden board.
  2. Cooking inside or outside? – our family cruiser vans are very popular for their rear mounted external kitchen. The kitchen is on the outside which means you get plenty of room to stand tall and move your body whilst cooking. Plus, you’re protected from rain by the rear door which opens towards the sky and forms a roof above the kitchen. Our other rental camper vans have kitchens on the inside. Whilst you’ll feel a little more confined when cooking, all the camper van internal kitchens are extremely well designed and easy to use.
  3. Standing Room – some vans give you plenty of room to stand tall, whilst in other campers you’ll need to hunch over a little. For most people, this is usually not a problem, but it’s certainly worth being aware of.

At www.campaboutoz.com.au we’re very proud of our excellent vehicles. Not only do the drive beautifully, they’re also feature packed to make your holiday fun.
