So holidays abroad are on hold at the moment and we’ve been limited to days out from home or the ever popular staycations. Sound boring? Well it doesn’t need to be.
When the weather allows, spontaneous days out at the beach can provide the same level of fun for the family as any foreign trip. It’s that desperate hunt around the house for swimsuits, beach towels and suncream. Cramming a cool box full of drinks, the perfect sandwiches and treats to keep everyone happy. Finding the camp chairs at the back of the understairs cupboard and praying that the much-loved crocodile inflatable still inflates.
With all this excitement you don’t want to be let down by the size of your boot and having to decide what gets left behind. If you’ve got a Ford Focus there is no such problem, it will easily accommodate everything you’ve collected and still have space for a (fully inflated) crocodile! Whether the beach is five minutes or an hour away you can arrive stress free and in comfort, ready for a sunny day away and more memories made.
For those with a sense of adventure, camping is making a comeback. That’s proper camping, under canvas with sleeping bags and camping stoves, not the glamping type where you just need to pack your pyjamas or swimsuit for the hot tub. Getting back to nature with walks along winding streams, overlooking panoramic views of hills and mountains with the reward of a hearty stew, a well earned hot chocolate and stories of days gone by told around the campfire into the early hours.
Camping trips are won and lost by your equipment. Failure to plan properly means in the simplest of terms you get wet, blown away or both. So why would you set off without the right vehicle. The Ford Ranger is ready for any challenge and any terrain so you can safely go off the beaten track, rather than choose a safer more accessible campsite, so you can get that true, off grid experience. Plenty of space to cover the essentials and excellent towing capacity for dinghies, boats or caravans if you’ve decided to swap the tent for a toilet!
Sometimes you just need to drive. The destination isn’t really finalised, it’s the thrill of the road, being out in the open air, with your favourite tunes as the soundtrack. For this your car is everything, and that car is a Ford Puma. It adds to the journey, with its selectable drive modes to fit your terrain, and it's effortless connectivity so you can find the perfect spot for lunch, viewpoint or place to stay. It’s generous interior and comfort for both driver and passenger may mean you drive further than you planned, so just imagine what you could discover.
