Everyone loves a vacation but sometimes it’s good to get away on your own terms. If you feel like escaping without the hassle of flights, hotels and cities, here are five reasons why camping could be your next adventure.
- You can go wherever you choose
Feel like going to the beach, the bush, or even your own backyard? The options are endless to where you can set up camp. The choice is yours.
- A peaceful and revitalising experience like no other
Breathing in the fresh air and soaking up the sunshine. Sitting by a campfire looking up at the stars. Listening to the babble of a creek or the waves on a beach as you fall asleep. These are the simple things that can make camping such an enjoyable experience.
- The opportunity to practice or develop different skills
The ability to make a fire, pitch a tent or prepare dinner without a kitchen are not everyday practices for most people. Camping offers you a chance utilise these skills. You never know when they may come in handy.
- A sustainable way to travel
The idea of camping involves only taking what you need. It is a chance to be minimalistic. For those who don’t own camping gear, there is the option to rent or borrow if you have camper friends. And for those who choose to buy equipment, it can be used again and again.
- Can be done alone or with a partner, family or friends
Camping can be as intimate an experience as you like. It can be a great way to get away and spend some you time or to bond and have fun with others.
If this doesn’t quite sound up your alley, there’s always glamping!
