The second #worldafroday is at the end of the summer, and whilst I’m not sure he’ll still be sporting the fro (possibly going for a new look for year 6 … More Why I’m encouraging my son to grow the fro
So we made it back to Blighty after our French road trip and what a trip it was. I have to say I’m a complete Eurocamp convert – having never done this kind of holiday before.
