Glamorous Camping: Glamping
Glamping (glamorous camping) seems like it must be something just for girls at first. You get a picture of mirrors, make up and lights all set up in tents. Or, that was the picture that came to my mind. However, glamping has a range from lightly rustic to full out luxury.
Looking at the directories for glamping sites around the world I found several based on farms, working farms and hobby farms. Some are located on beaches and some in mountains, forests too. Some feature tents and some have cabins - which would be more year round I'd think.
The idea of glamping seems to have started in Africa, with the luxury safari camps for hunters and tourists. I can remember seeing old movies like Tarzan where they had camps with big canvas tents, king size beds, bedding, carpets, towels, furniture, a feast of food including wine. It looked great on film no wonder people began to copy the idea. It sure sounds better than sleeping on the ground, enduring a leaky tent, fighting off insects and doing without indoor plumbing.
