As the 2014 events calendar took shape in early spring, we, the Coffee Camper co-founders (Nick & Emma) decided to turn the summer season into a giant adventure, pack up our house & set off 'on tour' from May to September all in the name of living life to the full and being true to our passion, purpose & values.
Spreadsheets have been created and plans laid to cover logistics, staff, stock and sleeping arrangements. While slightly unnerving, stripping daily life back to the essentials is strangely liberating.
We're looking forward to making beautiful coffee in stunning locations, a day off each week somewhere new, listening to some great bands, hooking up with old faces and meeting a plethora of new people too.
Highlights may be... arriving in Yorkshire a week before the tour de Yorkshire and making coffee as the atmosphere builds, wild (perhaps naked!) swimming in the festival lakes at Sgp & Wilderness, 6 days on the Isle of White, a night with Jack Johnson, downtime at a yoga barn, wild fitness training in Andalusia, dinner and dirty laundry washing with friends across the country... But the best bits may be the ones that we haven't even planned... We know there'll be highs and lows, twists and turns along the way but we're ready...
In the words of Jim Morrison:
'Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin.'
