WTF is Champing?

•••
https://www.instagram.com/p/BTgoPBklhuq/   A little known term that you may very well have never heard uttered previously - the name “champing” is a cute abbreviation of “church camping.” And church camping is, well, camping in churches - perhaps unsurprisingly. But I don’t mean flinging up a 2 man pop up in the cemetery - champing means[...]

Fall in Love with this Glampsite Just an Hour from London!

•••
As a Londoner, I’m always looking for excuses to get out of the city (temporarily, of course) on a cheeky weekender. For some time now, I’ve been trying to find an appropriate glamping experience that’s feasible from London. While there are a few options for glamping within easy reach of London, almost none offer decent transport links due to the o[...]

10 Practical Christmas Gifts for Travelers

•••
Every December (without exception) me and my mother do the annual pre-Christmas standoff in which she insists she must buy me something, and I insist that she doesn’t.

Hotels We Love: Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge

•••
Have you ever been to Heaven on Earth? I have: Well, actually this is of course a much more tangible place than Heaven. This is the Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge in northern Tanzania. After trying and failing to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro last June my dad and I treated ourselves to a luxurious getaway close to Ngorongoro Crater nature reserve and Serengeti Na[...]

Our top 10 Travelette-y Glamping Destinations

•••
I love being outdoors, nature, hiking and everything that goes with it. Well all, except actual camping. I can manage for a night or two but I won't be very happy. There is something about sleeping in a tent on the floor or in a caravan that just makes me feel very uncomfortable and claustrophobic. Add to this having to walk through Hippo-infested areas in o[...]

Glamping in the Desert: 5 Cool Tent Camps

•••
Dry heat has never been my thing. Other than just about every person from Central Europe who I had this discussion with, I prefer the humid air of the rainforest over the arid climate of deserts. When I visited the Californian Death Valley a few years back and we took a short walk in a small canyon, the dry air made my lungs feel compressed, my body deprived[...]

A girl in the wild - The art of camping in heels

•••
Remember this picture of me when Katja first introduced me as a new Travelette? I had just attempted my first ever official camping trip. Well, trip sounds a bit too grand, it was one weekend, but nevertheless I was proudly wearing my borrowed headlamp and drinking my pink champagne. The headlamp would be useless a few hours later as I was fumbling with the [...]
