Ahh the campfire. Is there anything better when you’re travelling than to pull up a comfy chair next to a crackling fire? Add to that a glass of red or a smooth port and you’ve settled in to watch nature’s television. It’s such a great way to swap stories with family or friends and for the yarns to run free. Some of the most memorable times we’ve had have been sitting around a fire and letting the conversations wander along with no one keen to leave the mesmerising fire or the good company surrounding it.
It’s also a great way to mull over the day that’s been and consider the plans going ahead, not to mention a great way to relax at the end of a busy day. If you’re lucky some campsites in caravan parks or free camps have fire pits ready to use or else taking a small brazier and heat beads is a good start and you can usually pick up small bags of firewood at petrol stations.
