• Tell Your Friends

I must admit, I’m not much of a camper. I love the idea of it — roasting marshmallows, cooking over a campfire, enjoying nature and so on. But I’m not a fan of bugs — more like terrified of them. And I can’t seem to get comfortable in a sleeping bag (who’s with me?). So, in honor of National Camping Month, I decided not to go camping, but glamping (glamorous camping) instead.


Now, this chic bedroom turned campsite is more like it. You get the best of both worlds — great views of nature AND the luxuries of home. Once you get the right music and lighting going, you can invite some friends and make a dinner party out of it. Happy glamping, everyone!

    I want to try glamping! I saw a website that showed yurts, tipis, safari tents and more from different parts of the world: http://www.glamping.com/

    I find it tough to even call that a tent. It's better furnished than a lot of houses I've seen.

  8. Now that is what I call a tent. I guess it wouldn't hurt to go about camping with some of the comforts and style of home.

    I dream of having a part in my garden where I can make a tent and go for that glamorous camping every now and then with my dear ones. I also do not like camping but the idea of glamping fascinates me. http://www.californiafenceco.com
