Tales from a Tent – a new adventure!

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!

Camping in the peak district

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!

The Island

With no apparent warning, something breached the otherwise placid waves. Offering no hope of premonitions, the entire scene was hopelessly transformed before it could possibly be comprehended. The perfect sheen over the water had burst, erupting into an ominous fountain, only momentarily concealing from the islanders the emerging threat. For centuries, the great beasts of… Continue Reading →

Visiting Cuckmere Haven beach

Cuckmere Haven Beach Visiting Cuckmere Haven beach is a wonderful and easy day out, especially for those based around London or in the south. It’s typically quieter than most alternatives, and what it lacks in reliable sandy stretches it compensates for with spectacular views of the Seven Sisters cliffs. Cuckmere Haven beach, also surrounded by… Continue Reading →

Can Jack Reacher survive the pandemic?

Will Jack Reacher be able to survive the COVID-19 pandemic? Physically, I’m sure he could survive the virus itself (it would certainly be a disappointing end to his legacy). The real question is whether his way of life is resilient enough to withstand new tests. This interesting thought experiment, interesting at least I hope to… Continue Reading →
