Camping, the Great Outdoors

Going Natural

Have you ever considered camping? These type of holidays make great family vacations and really bring families together.

There’s something special about being in the woods and by the lakes in summer with those summer smells and the sounds birds and crickets. Rivers and streams, fishing and trekking and a nice hot meal round the campfire at night.

Then into a nice warm cosy sleeping blank protected by a sturdy tent, keeping out the drafts and any rain. After all your outside and somewhere reassuringly dry is where you want to spend the night.

When we’re outside we need the right kit. Good boots if you’re walking a lot. Lots of dry clothes to change into. And sun cream because the sun can be very penetrating even on overcast days and we all need protection from the sun’s UV rays.

Good tents

our sleeping bags, you want to keep all your gear dry so a bigger tent is essential. It provides storage as well as sleeping quarters.

Something rather special happens when you, your family and friends go into the wilderness. Miles from cell phone masts, no Internet, no TV. You have to socialize once again, talk to each other, something we don’t do enough of these days. It takes a bit of time, a few tiffs along the way but everyone ends up seeing each other in different ways and bonds form. They have to because that we humans are good at.

Have Fun but be Safe

Camping is great fun but at the same time be safe. Always be aware where your young children are because this isn’t a Disney theme park. Don’t be too protective but always have an adult in place. Enjoy and explore our natural wonders as nature intended.
