Weekend Wants: A VW Campervan, Summer Festivals and Street Art

Summer Festivals

It’s coming to the end of festival season in the UK. This summer has flown by and I’m really disappointed that I didn’t get chance to go to one festival! I’m having to make so with Notting Hill Carnival this weekend and I’ve made a promise to myself that I’ll go to as many festivals next year as I can. If anyone is going to Bestival, my friend Vicky Flop Flop has some great Bestival Advice.

Street Art

Since going to Mr Brainwash’s exhibition last weekend I’ve become a wee bit obsessed with street art. I look out for it everywhere I go and I’m constantly asking myself, ‘Is this art or just some crappy graffiti?’ This weekend, I’m going to be looking out for more street art around London.

A VW Campervan

This week I wrote a mini survival guide to living in a campervan and it brought back such amazing memories. My boyfriend and I spent a year in our campervan as we drove around the coast of Australia and I would love to do something like this again. I’d to restore an old VW campervan and use it to drive around Europe. One day…

    I love going to festivals. Summer festivals are the best of course. Although I’ve been to London, I haven’t really had a chance to look at street art. Perhaps you can post some in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

    Old VW buses are way cool. I started my air cooled hobby with a bug, but than 10 yrs later came a Baywidow bus.
    One of my dreams is to take my wife and daughter and go for a few month trip across EU. Australia and California is another deam, but It’s not a good idea to ship the bus there and then fly…
    Well, I gotta think about it. Gotta weld up some holes before camper interior goes in. And lower it. Busses are cool, but lowered busses are badass ๐Ÿ™‚
