Vantastic: Retro caravan holidays in the modern world

By Kate Ulman

From caravan craft projects to tips on how to select the best caravan park, Kate Ulman takes a whimsical and nostalgic look at caravanning holidays in the modern world.

Kate and her family are seasoned caravanners, having spent six months travelling around Australia in their vintage caravan, stopping at many caravan parks and campsites along the way.

While travelling, Kate connected with thousands of like-minded travellers through her blog, Foxs Lane. And now Kate is sharing her travel advice, caravanning recipes, craft projects and photographs in this gorgeous book that may just inspire the retro caravanner in you.

Whether you're planning a caravanning adventure, are interested in how to make bunting and a pretty picnic quilt, or just need some advice on travelling with kids, Vantastic will make for the best gift to yourself or a friend. This beautifully designed book will have your friends eyeing it off on your coffee table and perhaps inspire new travel plans or a weekend craft get together.

Kate Ulman lives with her husband and three daughters on an organic farm near Daylesford, Victoria. She is crazy about crafts of all kinds, loves to repurpose old things and enjoys growing and cooking delicious organic produce.

Kate also has a popular blog, Foxs Lane (where her farm is located), which allows her to share her various passions.

When Kate and her family set out on a six-month caravanning adventure, they bought an old caravan and breathed new life into it with vintage finds and hand-crafted accessories. Vantastic, Kate’s first book, tells the story of that adventure.
