Glamping

What is glamping you ask? Glamping is glamour camping. Basically it pairs destinations with the intimacy of camping and the world of luxurious travel. You get to the “glamour” camping site and everything, the tent, fire, etc., is all set up and waiting for you. All you have to do is unload your bags and enjoy the bonfire. Let’s be real, unless you were a girl scout you are probably challenged like the rest of us in the areas of putting up a tent, navigating through the woods and starting your own fire. Glamping eliminates all of these difficulties. The only downside to glamping is that you might potentially have to use a port a jon and you will smell like a camp-fire, both of which are not so glamorous, I guess thats the price you pay. I went to Asheville Glamping (@AshevilleGlamping) and it was such an enjoyable experience.

I will take you on a journey of my whole experience glamping in Asheville…

Here is our airstream neighbor that you could rent instead of a tent. We were too cheap…

The first night we went to a drum circle in downtown Asheville. It was a happy night filled with hippies and strong body odors. Everyone in the town brought their drums and their dancing shoes and we danced the night away in a crowd of free spirited people. Oh and I got my face painted.

The next day we went driving again and explored old mills and art galleries.

Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 8.07.26 PMHere are some tips I have for glamping.

1. Go with good friends that you love and don’t mind being in confined spaces with. Otherwise it will be a horrible trip.
2. Make hippy friends.
3. Bring deodorant and smelly good spray—After a day or two you start to smell pretty weird. This step only applies if you don’t succeed with step 2.
4. Stock up on bug spray. Otherwise the bugs will have a field day. Especially if you are fair skinned and sweet like me. Jk. Kinda.
5. Bring a bottle of wine and some really good chocolate. No but seriously, if this is the only step you remember it will be a successful trip, except if you ignore tip number one, then you will still be miserable. There is only so much chocolate and wine can do and eliminating annoying people sadly isn’t one of them.

The end.
