On my bed I like to have 2 pillows. I pull my curtain across when I sleep. My bed is the middle bunk which is really good because everything is easier to access and you can easily get out of bed. Harry sleeps under me and Jed on top.
My bed is at the very bottom – the bottom bunk. The good thing about having the bottom bunk is that I find it easy to get in and out. Sometimes in the morning, when it is after 7 o’clock, I like to look out my window.
To keep cool
Whilst travelling Australia for 9 months we haven’t had any winter! Inside our caravan we have air conditioning, but we don’t use it when we are free camping. We still need to stay cool in the hot weather. In my bed I have a window to open which can help sometimes, but if its really hot we also have a fan. Alex likes to sleep with his fan turned on.
To stay warm
Although it is hot most of the time,
at night it can actually be really cold. On the end of the beds we have a camp
blanket. On my camp blanket I have badges of some of the places we have been,
it also has some of the Scout camps I’ve been on. When we have a camp fire it
is great to sit outside with our camp blanket.
Beside my head, in my bed, I have 2 holders and 2 hooks. My little hook is for my torch. My big hook is for my headset, which I use for Skype calls and listening to stories. My big holder is for my tablet. I also have a drink bottle holder that was meant to be for a bike, but we put them on our beds.
There are three drawers next to our bed. Mine is the bottom one. This is where we keep our clothes. In the morning, if there are no clean clothes on the end of my bed, I get some clean clothes out of my drawer.
Above the drawers there are two big cupboards. Three of our tubs are in there – one each for our toys. Under the tubs there is a big row of books. These are our school books and reading books. Above the tubs there is some stationary, like pencils, pencils cases and scissors. We also have our bathers and most importantly, our Lego and computers. I am using my computer right now to type this writing!
To see, we have a light each in our
beds, and also a light in the main area beside the bunks. We each have a USB
rechargeable torch that is great for night walks.
When we are at a camp site, we normally love to play outside. Sometimes though, we need something to do. For games, we have a cupboard above the couch. We have lots of games that we keep in zip lock bags instead of boxes, to save space. The sorts of toys to bring are all simple, a bit of Lego, a drawing book and maybe your favourite things.
I really like camping in the caravan, even though it is a smaller house! Check out my video below where I show you around my bed.
