Well, I can think of one too many reasons why.
First of all, it could be that you’re a worry-wart. Yes, it’s always a dreadful feeling to think about everything that could go wrong during the trip. In order to ease your worries, you think that preparing in advance is the best thing to do. What if someone gets sick? I should pack Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, and maybe herbal flu medicine too. What if someone gets into an accident? Bringing an emergency first-aid kit is definitely something I must do. What if it rains and I end up soaking wet? I should probably bring extra spares of clothes just to be sure. What if we can’t find nearby convenience stores and we run out of food? Packing some canned goods will definitely help us survive. And the list practically goes on.
You think of all the things that may go wrong and you end up preparing for it excessively. Your “first-time traveller” syndrome is acting up again even if you’ve already toured many places in the past – not that it’s a bad thing of course. You are entitled to doing everything that will set your heart at ease.
Secondly, you may think of this trip as an opportunity to finally debut as an “influencer” (read more). I know many young people who go on camping trips just for the sole purpose of getting Instagram-worthy pictures. But to take “double-tap” worthy photos, you need to be prepared – right? You need to have the right outfits, shoes, accessories, and whatnot. Not to mention, you also need to prepare all your shooting equipment from a GoPro Hero 6, a monopod, a tripod, ring light circles, mirrors, drones, and whatever else it is you need to take the perfect shot. Of course, this is not something you can all fit into a single backpack. I’m also sure it’s going to weight a ton. Long story short, this is not what travelling light means.
Lastly (although I do have many other reasons), you could have kids with you. Maybe you’re travelling as a family and there’s no way travelling with a single pack is going to cut it. You need diapers, formula milk, spare baby clothes, blankets, comfy pillows, baby bottles, and many other things on top of your own belongings. There’s also the issue of having to carry the baby. You definitely cannot hike and go camping with little to nothing on you.
To remedy all these situations, I have thought of the perfect solution: Why not rent a VW Camper Van Hire in Southampton?
Ever thought about that? A camper van has all the essentials you need – from sleeping quarters to baggage spaces and everything else you might need for camp. It’s a pretty sweet ride too. It’s definitely going to take Southampton Campers where you want to go in the least time.
Aside from being comfortable and useful, you can also ensure your safety while travelling with a camper van. You don’t need to worry about emergency situations either since you can swiftly travel to the nearest town with this nifty camping vehicle. You can store all your essentials and avoid big problems (e.g. losing important or expensive belongings) when you travel with a camper van.
Don’t worry. I’ve looked it up online and some rental companies offer their vans at very affordable prices – some even allow overnight rentals so you don’t have to pay for two separate days! Pretty sweet, right?
Summer is fast approaching. What are you waiting for?
