Travel Timehop

Travel Timehop #7 – Derwentwater, The Lakes

Between us Mr Tin Box and I have visited five continents – Australia, we’ll make it one day, Antarctica, maybe not – and dozens of countries. But sometimes our favourite travel memories come from holidays closer to home.
This week’s Travel Timehop is one of those moments and has more of a family feel than previous weeks as it comes from our first proper holiday with both Tin Box Dog and Tot.

When are we time-hopping to?

2013 was the year Tin Box Tot was born and also our first full season as caravan owners. We had a busy summer ahead of us with a holiday booked in Devon and a wedding to get to in Scotland. Some how we managed to fit it all in to a three week getaway with a six-month-old and dog in tow. You can read the full story in my posts about our summer 2013 adventures.

Where in the world?

On our journey between Devon and Ayrshire in Scotland, we pitched Tin Box at a Caravan Club site on the shores of Derwentwater in the Lake District. This marked the half way point in our holiday and a chance for us to enjoy some walking in one of our favourite UK counties.

Timehop moment

Derwentwater is in the north of the Lake District. On one of our days we decided to walk from our campsite at Borrowdale on the southern side of the lake to Keswick right on its northern tip. Our route was a Miles without Stiles path, which meant we could take the pushchair for TBT without worrying about getting it stuck along the way.

During our walk we met lots of other tourists, some stretching their legs like us and others hopping on and off the passenger ferry that was steaming up and down the lake. One couple offered to take this photo of us. It’s one of the very rare snaps we have of the whole Tin Box family and I love it.
