Camping and Caravans

Welcome to my blog! My name is Jonathan, and today I'd like to tell you all about my love of caravans. When I say that I live in Alice Springs, Australia, that is a bit of a lie. I mean, I have a house there but it is really just somewhere to keep my stuff. My real home is out on the road or in the Outback. For many years, I worked in a boring job so I could save money and buy my dream camper van. Now that I own one, I have taught myself how to live out in the middle of nowhere for weeks at a time. I decided to start this blog to encourage others to do the same.
