There is nothing extraordinary about me or my family. My wife – known in this book as E – and I met at University when I was studying for my Computer Science degree. We are both thirty and have two children, a boy who is nearly eight and a girl who is four. We live in a small town in North West England, both working full-time, and have two cars and a mortgage: in essence, quite unspectacular. There are many hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of families throughout the UK who are comparable to us.
This book details our first taste of naturism as a family, when in August 2012 we packed our suitcases and travelled to France to stay for four days at the naturist resort of La Jenny, not far from Bordeaux. Naturism is something I have always wanted to do – and I talk a bit about this in the book – and something that my wife was quite reluctant to do, at least initially. We both grew up in conservative households and while we had both shed some of our “programming” and are reasonably liberal in our views now, I was far keener to ditch my clothes and run around naked than my wife.
