A Popular Alternative to Holiday Travel. Would you go ‘Glamping’?
Curious about getting wild with nature just like Reese Witherspoon in her latest flick, but hesitant to forgo your creature comforts? woman with drive have tried and tested a simple solution: glamping. If you haven’t heard of glamping before, glamping = glamourous camping. It’s an alternative approach to off-road travel and a trend that has already fast become popular and ideal for the ladies who love a little luxury. Don’t we all?
A tent for two
We all know that men love the great outdoors – fishing, taking charge of the outdoor BBQ, packing then over packing some more with camping gear. At first it could be a little fun to ditch the creature comforts and be one with nature (and in good company) but the novelty can shortly fade. Pick it back up and head out for a weekend of glamping! It’s the little things that make all the difference, like power points to keep your hair and gadgets in place, a comfortable bed with beautiful sheets, a proper toilet, tea, coffee and all the facilities that will keep it a comfortable yet, still an adventurous kind of holiday.
A great way to travel with the ladies without doing all the hard yards – who ever liked spending half an hour to set up a tent for the weekend anyway?! Glamping is definitely a much more convenient option. Spend your time with the girls catching up over the fun stuff: nature walks, bubbles and gourmet food over sunsets, a boogie to your favourite songs inside the tent – this is a ladies trip, after all. Wondering what to pack? Just your personal belongings, the sites normally take care of the rest.
With Easter just around the corner, glamping for family travels can’t get any better. The great outdoors, stylish accommodation, lots of activities for the kids – everyone wins.
