One of the great things about camping is that you’re free to do pretty much anything you want while you’re there; it’s definitely one of the most flexible kinds of holiday you can take, as long as you don’t mind packing light. There’s not a lot of room in a tent or in a caravan, and basically you can only take what you can fit in your car – but when you think about it, that’s probably more than you can fit in your suitcase when you take a holiday on a plane.
If you really want to have your freedom on a camping holiday though, you’re best going on a motorbike. There’s something to be said for not having something as big as a car to fall back on to truly make you feel like you’re in the wild, and you can usually still fit two people on the back, with plenty of space for a backpack too. There’s also space for storage in the bike itself, but you’ll need to just pack the essentials or it’s not going to work.
Camping on a motorcycle is something that wasn’t really possible until more recently, because campsites have only just been upgrading their security to a standard that an expensive piece of kit like a bike can be truly safe overnight. It’s always important to make sure you take the proper precautions, such as taking a bike lock, and remembering to hide your keys properly if you are leaving the bike unattended; it’s also a good idea to make sure that any campsites you are thinking of visiting have the proper security measures in place.
In addition, although you obviously have to travel light, it’s still important to make sure you have all the essentials with you in order to keep your bike in good condition. The BMW Club has a handy checklist for all the things you might need with you in order to fix any problems you might have with your bike while you are on your travels.
As long as you’re properly prepared, a camping holiday on your bike is one of the most fun experiences you can have. The sense of danger and the unknown that comes with camping more than any other holiday anyway is really a much bigger rush when you’re on a motorbike.
Vancouver is known around the world for its seafood, most notably its salmon. Every year, tourists flock to the west coast, partaking in scenic views and specialities, such as candied salmon – but what could be better than catching a live one? Chartered fishing boats offer a unique experience to both residents and visitors – to spend a day on the water, soaking up sun and catching fish in a safe environment. If you are looking to do more than tour city streets and unique restaurants, experts in the area, such as Hook and Sea Charters are offering up the experience of a lifetime.
Unlike other locations, Vancouver does not have an on/off switch to its fishing season. Mid-March to September might see the highest population rates but it is possible to fish for salmon 365 days a year. Although it is possible to cast a rod off of a pier and hope for the best, there are many advantages to choosing a chartered boat.
Expertise: Booking a chartered fishing experience means having access to a knowledgeable crew. There is more to fishing than knowing how to work the equipment. In order to get the best results for clients, it is important for guides to know the best local areas to find and catch fish. In an area like Vancouver, the weather can be unpredictable – particularly for visitors who are unfamiliar with the climate.
Equipment: Even those who are inexperienced in the world of fishing can succeed with the right guidance and the right tools. Excursions offer access to all of the equipment you could ever need to reel in a catch.
Safety: Any activity can be dangerous without the right experience. Choosing a reliable company means all the right safety equipment and training is right there waiting for you.
Stress Relief: Running around from place to place in order to maximize vacation time can be stressful. Instead of ending your trip needing a vacation from your vacation, spend a day relaxing. There is something cathartic about spending time outdoors, so take a load off and enjoy the trip!
