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!
Whilst you’re here, why not check out the latest posts?

The blatant yet brash creeping towards authoritarianism has most recently manifested in a proposed bill to silence open journalism. Obsessing over crushing a public voice, the most overt assault against democracy in the UK has now been issued. The incremental stages can be mapped… Continue Reading →
Fairfax blinked away his surprise. I had never asked for help before. Clearly, something was wrong. It had been building for far too long. He might have possessed an inkling of my struggles, but knew far from the entirety. Which, of course, had been a deliberate precaution. In that moment, however, I had resolved to… Continue Reading →
For most fans, both of tennis and Andy Murray, his Wimbledon return was probably met with mixed emotions. More than anything, it was fantastic to watch him in action again. ‘Inspirational’ is vastly insufficient to describe his journey. An infinite number of accolades could be lathered over his career and never do it justice. But… Continue Reading →
