An unplanned spur of the moment trip to Loch Tay and it was ace! Typical Scottish weather but we found the nicest campsite – Cruachan Farm. It had a kids park and a stream so the boys had loads of fun playing there with the other kids onsite. Water played a big part of this… Continue reading Loch Tay
Since Easter and camping season is now upon us here’s a few pics of Bella over the winter with the family. Still going strong, MOT’d with no issues whatsoever, most reliable vehicle we’ve ever had! We’ve moved house and she has been amazing at transporting boxes and taking stuff to the dump, we’ve definitely seen the… Continue reading Winter 2016 – Spring 2017
We haven’t updated this for a while as we’ve had a busy few months trying to move house (still trying) and a crazy busy wedding season (we’re wedding photographers). However here’s a few pics from the very few times we’ve managed to pop away for the weekend. Bella is still running brilliantly, we use her every… Continue reading Bella still rocks!
We went to Volksfling 2016 in Biggar. Strange thing to do in a Bongo I grant you but my brother invited us (he owns a very shiny T4). The weather was amazing and it was actually great to spend time with my brother and family and also see like-minded families and folk who love the… Continue reading Volksfling 2016 – in a Bongo
Last week we set off on a Thursday evening to Witches Craig campsite in Stirling. A beautiful location beside the Wallace monument. The campsite was great, really quiet with clean toilets and showers – which even had music playing. Very soothing at 4 in the morning. We had a great little walk after setting up Bella.… Continue reading Stirling and Craig Tara
Took them out to the Lomond Hills in Fife to roll their eggs. This is where I rolled mine as a kid. In my day we never had the luxury of a warm Bella to eat our lunch in though, we sat outside on a moist rug drinking hot soup from a flask, freezing to death. Love the… Continue reading Easter Sunday in Bella
Can’t believe on a blog about our Bongo we forgot to take a pic of Bella this day, promise it won’t happen again. Sandwiches and cold pizza were had inside Bella on a very cold day at the beach. Love Tentsmuir. Love Bella.
Spring is almost here so every spare weekend we’ve got we’re out in Bella, using her more as a day van for picnics at the moment but come summer we’re planning lots of little trips away with the kids. After a year of having her she passed her MOT with no problems at all. The mechanic… Continue reading Bella takes us to the Scottish Deer centre
After a year of getting to know Bella we knew what we wanted from a conversion, the only downside (apart from the cost obviously) was getting to Devon and back, because after ALOT of research the conversion that we liked best was typically the farthest point south from us. Oh well, 10 hour drive there… Continue reading The big conversion
Welcome to our blog and our very first post. We should have started this last year but time has flown by. This blog is to document our time spent with the new member of the family. A 2001 2 litre Petrol MAZDA BONGO FRIENDEE called Bella. Our little family has loved every minute with her so far. It all started in… Continue reading Our First year with Bella
