THE LIFE of a traveller is full of ups and downs as you're splashing out on flashy frocks one day and being judged the next.
No one knows this more than Caravan Queens the Mac Sisters who openly share about their experiences in the traveller community.
Recently Caitlin, 18, and Lizzy, 20, shared the worst thing that has happened to them as travellers interacting with the non-traveller community on TikTok.
In the post Lizzy said: "So for me the worst experience was, going into a restaurant and as soon as we get to the door, not even into to the door, they just come to the door and said: 'You're not allowed in we don't serve travellers'.
"They said they can just tell by the way we look and the way we're dressed and then Caitlyn just goes to them…"

At this point her younger sister Caitlyn jumped in, speaking in a posh-London accent.
She said: "Oh sorry Sir , well obviously we were born in London, we don't even know what travellers are."
They continued: "And they were like: 'Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry! Just that there's loads of travellers that live around here'."
Lizzy said: "Caitlyn's really good at accents. That's bad when you have to pretend to be something else. We have to say we're not just to go and get food. Are you having a laugh?"
But this is nothing new for the glam pair, who have been subjected to ill treatment on many occasions.
Caitlin said: "We have been treated like dirt. People will call us names as well, like Pikey, Dosser, Tinker, Gypo, and Knacker – but we are just humans.”
We have been treated like dirt. People will call us names as well, like Pikey, Dosser, Tinker, Gypo, and Knacker – but we are just humans.
Since they began in 2019, the sisters have racked up over 435k followers, with fans fascinated by this glimpse into a world traditionally shrouded in secrecy.
Lizzy said: “There are so many bad stereotypes of us, and it hurts us – it makes it really difficult to just live normal lives. Even if we have pre booked, some restaurant owners won’t let us in because we are travellers.
“And it’s really difficult, if you ever want to throw a party or hire a venue for a wedding, because a lot of places think there is going to be trouble so will say no.”
For more from the traveller community… I’m a traveller, people call me inbred and I’m followed around shops by staff but I’m proud of my lifestyle.
And this 18-year-old traveller is married, living in a caravan stuffed full of clothes.
Plus we shared how a traveller mum throws daughter, 10, a party so she can meet a husband – and is fine with her getting pregnant at 14 too.
