Martin Dorey is a writer, surfer, photographer, presenter, cook and campaigner for the #2MinuteBeachClean. He writes about camping, fun, outdoor food, living the outdoor life and having adventures in his VW camper van and contributes regularly to CampsitedCoast Magazine, Camping Magazine and Motorhome and Motorcaravan Monthly Magazine. Martin’s first book, The Camper Van Cookbook, inspired the BBC TV series One Man and His Camper Van in which Martin cooked and camped his way around the UK. It has now aired all over the world. The follow-up book, The Camper Van Coast, celebrates Martin’s love for coastal living, playing, cooking and eating.

Martin’s third book, The Camper Van Bible, was published in June 2016, and has been described as THE definitive glove-box bible for anyone who owns or ‘would die for’ a camper van.

A writing career came late for Martin after a 12-year stint in the advertising and film industry as an Assistant Director on some of the more famous 90s TV commercials – Guinness, Levis, Gold Blend, Oxo — as well as promos for The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox (among others), a documentary about legendary British cameraman Jack Cardiff and various TV series and film projects.

The #2minutebeachclean campaign has been taking Martin in all kinds of directions of late. From being an idea to inspire others to help clean beaches it has grown into a global campaign with many thousands of followers and posts to Instagram from every continent, including Antarctica. The idea has been used in Ireland and the UK as well as in Israel and Puerto Rico. Martin has spoken about the campaign at the Blue Flag Operators’ Conference in Holland, was invited to speak at TEDx Kiel University and on BBC’s Springwatch.

A very important read and inwrview with Lewis Arnold by @shhhaddad


Your local postie is facing the most important week ever.

They are facing intimidation, threats and bullying from an out of control management team.

They will strike for 2 days to save the service and their jobs.

Are you with them?

Black Friday?
Me and her will be in the sea.


Anyhow... See you over in Instagram.

”Global Witness found more than 600 people at the talks in Egypt are linked to fossil fuels.
That's more than the combined delegations from the 10 most climate-impacted countries.”

"If you want to address malaria, you don't invite the mosquitoes”

The lines are drawn

RT if you are with the striking nurses, posties, telecom workers, rail workers, civil servants, lecturers, teachers and call centre workers

RT if you are sick and tired of all workers being told no as profits, dividends and CEO pay spiral

Enough is Enough

Oh @RishiSunak pledged to double our carbon fighting funds..... Erm. How so, when you are cutting funding for the UK's lungs?

You don't need a weekend. You don't need green spaces. You don't need nature.
Vote them out.

Went to Nazare today and watched some very big waves. Flipping extraordinary.

"I parked the Dutchie to the left hand side...."

I'll get my coat....

I'm thinking of a song lyric. Any ideas?

Stop funding hate. In being complicit, you are part of the problem.

Twitter is a marketplace for extreme and unpleasant views.

A lot of people I follow, who I thought were reasonable people, appear to follow some people with vile opinions.
