We’ve had our (new to us) Jayco Silverline for around 18 months now and have done quite a bit of travelling on and off road, so it has given us time to live with it and work out any changes we’d like to make. For the most part we love it, the layout and finish is perfect for us but one thing has been an impractical nuisance from the beginning so a bit of modification was called for.
It started as friendly banter between campsites in the caravan park but we took one-upmanship to a new level with an over the top wine and food matching evening with a little help from some friends. What started out as a decision to have a crab and squid linguine meal one evening with our freshly caught seafood soon turned into an all-out degustation for four, where we finished up matching drinks with each course and produced a menu of dishes that we would be happy to order out anytime.
See how you think we went with our menu.
It doesn’t get much better than propping your caravan on a beachfront site during a South Australian summer. No matter what the weather does from day to day you always have a moving picture in front of you.
Overseas travel restrictions has seen an increase in caravan purchases and Aussies looking to get out and discover their own backyards. I’ve heard of incredibly long waiting lists, even up to a year, for people wanting to buy new caravans. With quite a few factories having to close during the worst of the Covid outbreak it’s not surprising that there is a backlog, especially when you realise that 90% of production of Australian vans takes place in Melbourne.
On a recent visit to the town of Normanville on the western side of the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, I was able to find some recently created street art. These were completed in September 2020 and are another example of local artists being used to brighten up spaces by painting scenes of the region.
