I am Mrs S, I am a wife to Mr S, and together we have three beautiful children – M (age 6), Lil_E (age 3) and babyS (age 8 months).

We LOVE to travel, and after we had our first mini me , we purchased our Campervan Otis. We have spent the last three years converting it to a camper and during this time have had the opportunity to visit some wonderful places in the UK and to make lots of memories.

I have a real passion for photography, although I am a complete novice, and love taking photos of my family, our adventures and the beautiful places that we are lucky enough to visit. I love spending time with my family and my friends, seeking adventures,  and I love the sea.


I have started this blog during my maternity leave with my third mini me, as a way to document my thoughts and keep my mind creative, and it is an opportunity to record and share our memories and adventures and captured moments.  I guess Otisandus is predominately a travel blog, a place I will share my thoughts, our memories, and some of my favourite photographs of our adventures – be it a holiday, a weekend away, or our many family day trips travelling in our converted camper van.  I do love to take photographs of my mini me’s so this blog will also cover family life with our three children.

Nothing beats the outdoors, turning off the TVs and iPads, and just enjoying each others company.  I love that feeling of throwing out the routine, getting back to basics and just enjoying the simple things in life – each other. I hope to inspire you to follow your dream travel, and seek those wonderful adventures. I choose to believe that sometimes…the best thing in life really can be free.

Welcome to Otisandus – I hope you enjoy the ride.
