Roadtrips, adventures, camping weekends… They don’t cost a damn thing and make you feel so alive. There’s truly something amazing about not having plans. Not having to be ‘on’. And my favourite… not having to shower. Yasss!
The other week I got to test out the new Ford Escape, and thought, “Perfecto, I’ll trial it on one of these cheeky adventures of mine”. So my boyfriend, best friend, her boyfriend and I, piled up the Ford Escape with our camping gear, surfboards and guitar, and drove to stunning Jervis Bay.
It passed test number one- maximum space for all my unnecessary props. I always get teased about how many activities, toys and games I pack to go camping. (Yeah who’s laughing when my tent has fairy lights, prayer flags, baskets, doormats, instruments, doonas, a queen size triple decker inflatable mattress and 7 thousand hippy cushions for decoration? Not me). Sorry got a little carried away. Anyway, with the back seats all folded down, this all fit like an absolute Christmas treat.
We cruised down the highway with the panoramic sunroof (how OTT) open, while singing way too loudly. Yep, it passed another two tests:
1) I’ve never had a car with a sunroof. So I instantly felt 75% cooler… and like I was on film clip. Naturally.
2) The SYNC 3 was perfect for my double disc RnB Fridays mix, and old school James Blunt. You think I’m joking. I’m not.
