By way of small update, I wanted to announce the launch of my second website, Tales from a Tent! For any travel or camping fans, this will represent a more focussed exploration of the topic, whereas Tom’s Tales of Woe are considerably more general.
It’s taken a fair degree of effort to prepare it, though it’s still afflicted by a few growing pains, so any support would be greatly appreciated!
For many reasons, camping is a great way to explore the brilliant outdoors, whether in a tent or campervan. Now, with campsites imminently re-opening, it’s time to be inspired by the possibilities!
Fundamentally, camping is a fun way to challenge yourself, by adopting a more minimalist lifestyle. Not only is the experience thoroughly enjoyable, but it can equally feel deeply rewarding as a result.
Typically situating you in the countryside, camping is also great for positioning you to enjoy other activities whilst connecting with nature. This can vary from casual strolls to rock climbing, intrepid hikes to kayaking, depending on where you stay. These become a lot more accessible when using a campsite as your base. The practise of camping is also growing in popularity – as the number of prospective campers rises, so too do the wonderful opportunities to keep exploring!
If you’re unconvinced, rest assured I will continue to post regularly over here, with my combination of travel blogs, short stories, and social commentaries. I understand the appeal of camping is not universal, but several of my most successful posts have been inspired by camping adventures I’ve undertaken within the UK.
But, if you’re hoping for either advice or destination inspiration, Tales from a Tent is the place to be!
Thanks for reading! Hopefully you’re encouraged to explore more. What are your dream travel plans this summer? Unsurprisingly, I’m aiming to get into the countryside for some camping!

In turn, the jostling crowd spat frenzied ire at the building, slurring vague demands into their disgusted tirade. Gazing at the assembly from afar, one man beamed outwardly. Alfie Darkson.

The wonder of technological potential is ceaseless. It’s projected that, within the next couple of years, woolly mammoths might be resurrected, to immense consequences. A long-extinct species might once again roam the earth. However bleak today might seem, astounding technological innovations always have the potential to dramatically alter the world. Whether beneficial or not, we’re… Continue Reading →
Forgive the deliberately provocative title, though it is at least relevant. Many have attributed the rise in players ‘taking a knee’ to nothing more than virtue signalling. I’ve always optimistically assumed that claim to be false, but big decisions are on the horizon. The key factor is determining whether substance exists in football’s virtue signalling….
