{SPACES: camping on wheels}

Happy Victoria Day everyone! I’m spending the day at home catching up on projects on my patio. Hopefully I get done early and have a little time to kick back and enjoy the patio. But for the past two days I was out enjoying mother nature in the heart of it with a few girlfriends. We rented a yurt in at Charleston Lake Provincial Park. It was beautiful! I hadn’t been to a provincial park in ages and forgot how nice and well kept they are. 

It was also my first time staying in yurt. And don’t get me wrong, I loved the yurt! It was super spacious, clean and I can’t complain about having a real bed, a deck & a BBQ. But I became quite enamoured by our neighbours across the street and their caravan. I think it was a little nostalgic because I have memories of camping with our small expandable trailer as a child. 

It made me fascinated with the idea of owning a vintage style (of course) caravan and all the interesting places you could take it for different adventures or peaceful getaways. 


Talk about the ultimate DIY renovation project. The only thing stopping me from hunting down one of these charming sleeping nooks and giving it a makeover is the fact that I live in a condo an don’t have anywhere to park it. 

Maybe it will be a future project. In my research I came across a site called Sisters on the Fly. Their tagline is “we have more fun than anyone”. The website could use a little makeover but I couldn’t love the concept more. It’s a community of women who love adventure, traveling by caravan and enjoy the outdoors. Their mission statement is “Offering empowerment and sisterhood through exceptional outdoor adventures.” They also have something called Cowgirl Bootcamp. Hello! Retirement planning done.

{friday’s sweet escape}

This time tomorrow I will be escaping 3 hours north for a weekend of yurting in the woods. Yurting lies somewhere between camping and cottaging. Although I’m not so sure our yurt will be quite as beautiful as this – I can still enjoy the thought. 


Happy long weekend everyone!
