Nice review on Caravanmessa on Lillestrøm

Caravanmessa at Lillestrøm is almost like Christmas Eve for anyone who loves camping life. This year, as in previous years, expectations were met. In the many halls, campers, carriages and camping equipment were set up in neat rows for free inspection for the skinny eyes.

Spring 2017 was the Camping Portal contacted by Geir Svardal, journalist in Vi Menn's mobile car magazine. He was going to write a book about camping, and, inter alia, needed to get in touch with someone who was both regular and who used a truck. Of course, we made it available, and just over a year later, the result of Svardal's work resulted in a very exciting "camping bible" that contains both historical features, facts and conversations with people with different approaches to camping.

At the caravan messa at Lillestrøm we met Geir Svardal again, a nice review where we got the latest update about the book sales and it's amazing fun to hear Geir summarize the great response the media has given after booking "Camping - the good life along the country road" came out :

"NRK Dagsrevyen (recording from Ramton camping), TV2 news channel (live broadcast from Ekebergsletta), TV2 Good Summer Norway (live broadcast from Aker Brygge), Reiseradioen (P1 - live broadcast with Bache and Gokstad), Ekko (P2 live broadcast), Buskerud Camping direktsending) and the Norgesglasset (P1 recording). Large articles in Dagbladet (three times!), Aftenposten, Bergens Tidende, Morgenbladet, Our Country, Dagsavisen, etc., and articles in the caravan industry's own media "

Are you a real camping enthusiast we can safely recommend the book and maybe you know someone who had been happy to have it in Christmas?
