So this weekend I was a tourist in my own city; I stayed in an authentic gypsy caravan, tucked away in someone’s back garden in Kentish Town. I wanted to be able to head out dancing in Camden, and just head back to somewhere fun. To make it feel more like a weekend away.
What had always put me off using air b and b was having to be in somebody’s home. The thought makes me a little anxious, although I know many people love the social factor that comes with their bookings. This little caravan was perfect then, as it had its own garden gate entrance. No social interaction necessary!
It was a weekend to celebrate my birthday so I’d been given roses and a present (not from air b and b of course!) and on top of that the caravan didn’t disappoint. It was certainly a little surreal to be in the middle of Kentish Town, but once inside, you were transported. It was a really fun way to take a break from the working week.
What was my gift? These badboys, which I’d been appreciating in the shop the week before.
I’m working such long hours at the moment, that I’m really trying to make the weekends count. To go and do things that are out of the ordinary to make them feel really different to the working week. I’m finding it really helps me feel refreshed and ready for the week ahead.
