Hi, I’m Lottie!
If you’re bored with life or curious what you could do differently, you’ve come to the right place. Princess in a Caravan is a blog dedicated to helping people like you learn more about the possibilities of getting off the typical tourist path, volunteering, teaching and travelling. You can see the world, explore it how you like (maybe in a caravan?), and do new, amazing things.
Although I really do like pink sparkly things, I am not a real princess (I have been known to don a tiara) but I do live in a caravan.
When you start realizing that life can be lived differently, things change. Humans are naturally nomadic. Cue Caravan.
A year after arriving in South Africa we (my boy and I) packed our belongings and dogs into a 30-year-old caravan to hit the road.
Join me for the journey and see where it takes me.
