We don’t camp, because we love sleeping on the floor. The whole point of it for us is to be in nature. Sometimes that means we have to trek miles and stay in tents. But we just tried glamping for the first time last week and learned that maybe we can have our cake and eat it too!
I know everyone loves the idea of glamping lately, but part of me felt a bit guilty and too princessy. I had this silly idea that I hadn’t quite earned the wilderness experience if I didn’t rough it a bit, but now I know there is a time and place for both.
What is glamping?
Glamping is glamorous camping. At first we thought glamping meant you stayed in a luxury tent, but we later learned that it can come in lots of other forms too: tree houses, yurts, camper vans, tipis, cabins, lodges, etc. Any way that seamlessly brings luxury into nature can be called glamping. We especially loved that we can explore the trails and still have a hot shower and a comfortable bed to come back to.
The sign is on a tree and can be easy to miss! If you use google maps, though, it should take you to the correct place. :)
Isn’t this bed dreamy?
You can even grind your own coffee beans. Can’t do that when you’re camping!
Anyone else love Settlers of Catan? I don’t, but I had to be a good sport for the rest of them. :P
