Family travel

Tin Box is dead, long live Tin Box!

After two and a half years of excellent service, the Tin Box household has parted ways with our Bailey Senator Arizona – sob!


It was our first family caravan and the first non-canvas roof that Mr Tin Box and I purchased (yes, we bought numerous tents and a caravan before our first house). So saying goodbye was a little emotional.


However, when my folks decided to get a motorhome and offered us their slightly newer and much posher van we would have been silly to say no. We are now the proud owners of a Vanmaster Applause – Tin Box 2 – which you will be seeing a lot of on the blog in the months to come.

But before then it would be callous not to pay tribute to Tin Box 1 and all the amazing adventures we shared together. 

Plenty of walks and sleeping under our bed meant Tin Box Dog was a massive fan from the start…


Then came Tin Box Tot, who began her caravan adventures at just six weeks old…

Tin Box 1 took us on our first family summer holiday to Devon…
And to the Lake District…

As you would expect, travels in Tin Box 1 were always hard work…
We had a few mishaps along the way…

And some ingenious ideas…
There was always time for outdoor fun…
And indoor fun when the weather wasn’t so kind…

Tin Box 1 took us to stay in some beautiful places…

And close to some fantastic events…we’ve got so many great memories…

Oh, the stories Tin Box 1 could tell…

Thank you Tin Box 1 – we’re going to miss you!
