When you think of camping, what is the first things that comes to mind?
If those unpleasant things (or others like them) are the first things in your head when you think about camping, then chances are you’re more of a “glamper” than a camper. You would prefer to be indoors, you really love your air conditioning, and the thought of leaving your home behind for the woods fills you with dread.
And ya’ll, there’s nothing wrong with that.
So, what exactly does “Glamping” mean? It’s a form of camping that incoroporates glamorous or luxurious touches. It’s not at all hardcore or rugged, but rather for families or individuals who like to travel in style. Probably my favorite part of glamping is the ability to be creative, incorporate color, and your personal style into your glamping experience.
And as a woman, I love the touches of home.
Glamping can range anywhere from mild glamping to incredibly luxurious glamping that is out of reach for most of us, but what all glamp-sites have in common is the ability to “wow” us. Take a look at these spectacular examples for inspiration:
In an Airstream
The pull of the vintage (but modernized) Airstream is real, ya’ll. I’ve been bingeing on the Instagram feeds like David Zimmerman’s: a family of 4 living and traveling in a 25′ Airstream, and Heather of TakeThatExit.com soaking up the Airstream life.
While most of these folks have great Airstreams and lifestyles I admire, even theirs don’t quite measure op to these crazy luxurious Airstreams.
With The Fam
Glamping isn’t just for those without kids, they can enjoy the comfort too!
In A Tent
Whether in Africa, Canada, or in your own backyard, tents have come quite a long way in terms of size, durability, and comfort. These examples of glamorous tents are quite amazing:
The Pop-Up Glamper
These tend to be cuter, and for some reason, always belong to women, but hey, if it works, work it!
Aren’t these cute? They’re kind of a cross between a tent and a pod, but still very cute and fun for a single individual or a couple. Oh, and they’re super luxe too.
Retro vans are also all the rage today, mostly for singles or couples without kids. This is understandable because they have a pretty limited amount of space. They are, however, VERY versatile and mobile – and when done up right are more luxurious than my home!
Living in a treehouse isn’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean it’s not super cool:
You can have all of the comforts of home at your campsite, but unless it looks truly posh, the glamping experience isn’t quite complete. Just like the most luxurious of houses have design details that set it on a pedestal above the rest.
The same goes for glamping. Check out these cool and fun details that make these campsites drool-worthy:
So glamping is actually a thing, and I’m loving it!
