Fire Safety Tips
• Check your fuel lines and exhaust system regularly for leaks or blockages. If you detect any problems, have them fixed immediately.
• Never leave your engine running while you are away from the vehicle.
• Never smoke in or near the campervan, especially when using gas appliances.
• All gas appliances must be serviced regularly by a qualified technician.
• Always use a fire extinguisher if there is a fire and make sure it is kept in a visible and easy to access location within your campervan.
• Have an emergency evacuation plan in place in case of fire and practice it regularly. Make sure you know where the nearest fire station is located.
• Install smoke alarms and CO2 detectors inside your campervan. Test them monthly to make sure they are working properly and replace the batteries every 6 months.
• Store combustible materials away from sources of heat or sparks and keep them in a secure, non-combustible container.
Finally, don’t forget to regularly inspect and test your fire safety equipment to make sure they are in perfect working condition

I have always wanted to travel and luckily I always got to travel to some amazing countries while I was growing up with my family and this really encouraged me to continue this and get out into the world on my own when I was older.
My goal growing up was really to see as much of the world as I could, but then I started going to work and really concentrating on my career and travel took a back seat. I still tried to get away a few times a year but I always knew there was an end goal which was to travel as much as possible.
So I got my head down and worked as hard as I could as an e-commerce manager. I have always been techy, I love computers and websites, so that’s where it gave me the idea to start this blog and also have my own web design agency. If you want to check it out or need any help then please take a look rrwebdesign.co.uk (shameless plug there)
But after covid, we both knew this was now the right time to take the leap and go and see the world after being trapped inside our house and working from home for a couple of years. We realised more than ever that you only get one life and you really need to make the most of it and do what you love!
