My family's disastrous attempts to go camping in the 70s... For the Seventies child, summer holidays didn't mean the joy of CentreParcs or the sophistication of a Tuscan villa. They meant being crammed into a car with Grandma and heading to the coast, with just a tent for a home and a bucket for the necessities. For Emma Kennedy, and her mum and dad, disaster always came along for the ride no matter where they went. Whether it was being swept away by a force ten gale on the Welsh coast or food poisoning on a brave trip to the south of France, family holidays always left them battered and bruised.
