I was at the NEC in Birmingham recently, representing Searivers Leisure Ltd at the Caravan Show. Wow, that place is massive, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s as big as Ynylas or Borth. There were thousands of people there, all rushing around, all busy, busy, busy. Being from the Mid Wales Coast, I’m not used to seeing so many people, it was quite disconcerting, and I was secretly glad that I did not have to endure this human congestion every day. It made me think how lucky I was to come from where I do.
Another thing that struck me was the traffic, dear God and little baby Jesus, I would never be able to cope with that every day. I was actually stuck on a roundabout for about 15 minutes, trying to find the correct exit. Roundabout they called it, to me it seemed like a small country being constantly circled by a guard of cars and lorries. Anyway, I eventually fluked my way off Roundaboutistan, and with great relief I was heading North West, and for the coast.
Whilst at the show, I met a lot of nice people, all with their own version of a dream of escaping the Metropolis, and following me to the beach. Why do they have this dream? Well, from my short time in and around Birmingham and from what people were telling me, it was apparent that the City dwellers life is filled with stress, there is a strange tension on the streets, congestion, pollution, there are social, political and racial issues, it is an unpleasant human stew, with too many rotten ingredients. It is no wonder people are fleeing this hideousness and flocking to the tranquillity and beauty of the Welsh coast. Many of our wonderful caravan owners at Searivers, Cambrian Coast and Riverside tell me they can actually feel the tension rising from them as they approach their sanctuary.
Whilst we do have our own socio-economic problems here in Wales, we, in contrast to the city, have them in the most pleasant surroundings, wide open spaces, stunning scenery, beautiful beaches, wild, rugged mountain ranges, just waiting to be explored, historic castles dating back thousands of years, rivers, lakes, and perhaps most importantly, a calmer, less stressed attitude.

When visiting somewhere for the first time, it is your right to look dazed and confused, we live with that look, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. You have so many questions going on in your head, things like, have I come to the right place? Are they friendly? What is there to do here? Do I look silly in these new shorts I got in the sale in Burtons? What time does the bar open? Do they serve food? Where is the swimming pool? Is my dog allowed on the beach? How far is the beach and how do I get there? Must I keep tripping over this suitcase? So many questions….
At Searivers Leisure we understand that buying a caravan can sometimes be a confusing and stressful process. We realise that you will be parting with a substantial amount of money and that it is essential you get it right.
With the Americanisation, or even Disneyfication of our towns and cities, apart from the obvious landmarks, pretty much everywhere looks the same, same uniform Mcdonalds, same Costa, same Frankie and Benny’s, same Clothes shops, same, same, same.
