Being a planner isn’t a bad thing. The saying goes, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.” And that might be true. But being unwilling to deviate from your route, disregarding the urge to take a side road, or pause altogether, that’s the perfect way to arrive at a destination you don’t even recognize, let alone want for yourself.

Last week P:-) and I spent a few days at Bendalong on the South Coast of New South Wales- a tiny village lying between Nowra and Ulladulla.
We stayed at the Rustic Caravan Park in our little pop up caravan.
It is a small, simple, quiet caravan park on the edge of Berringer Lake, an off shoot of Lake Conjola.
P:-) and I went for a walk along the edge of the lake, through the Conjola National Park.
There was a much taller variety of banksia which wasn't flowering, growing across the hill and these trees left carpets of serrated leaves dotted with banksia cones.
Dotted through the trees were flowering Mountain Devils (Lambertia formosa).
But back to the camp for lunch.
Taking the vintage camper route is Worcester, Massachusetts-based eco-designer and DIYer Mariah Pastell, who has been transforming a 1960's Avalon trailer into The COMET (Cost-effective, Off-grid Mobile Eco Trailer). Mariah lives in this lovely camper year-round, towing it to warmer places during the winter. Click here to read more.
