This is the time of year that we often go camping for a weekend or so, to a place very dear to me , very green , quiet , close to the sea and full of happy ,childhood memories.
That’s why I would like to talk about camping to you today.I don’t know if you are the kind of person who likes going camping, because I know quite a few who are not very keen on spending some nights sleeping in a small tent , lying on the rough surface of an uneven ground , having to deal with all sorts of insects and small critters who inhabit the area J.
I have actually camped in different places and under different conditions for many years and I can surely say that I like camping no matter how ‘tricky’ it might be, at times.
I remember setting a tent on a mountain, near a lake, in early spring, listening to the croaking of hundreds of frogs who lived there and decided to give their performance while we were trying to get some sleep – it was actually the best lullaby we could have!!
I also like it when I find a nice well organized camp site, with bungalows, and a traditional tavern with fresh sea food and umbrellas on a long , sandy beach.
Yes, I believe that the only way to feel close to nature and accept its generous gifts, is to sleep in a humble abode , feeling and smelling the forest, the sea, the sand, the pebbles , the open air around you.
These are things you may miss when you are staying at a big hotel watching TV and getting ready for a hundred different activities organized by others for you.
This does not mean that I don’t like the luxury that nice hotels offer, but when I want to spend some quiet time close to Nature, then camping is my choice!
I will leave you here my dear readers, wishing you a sunny and warm summer weekend, hoping that you spend it wherever and however you like it best!!
I wish you a very happy weekend by camping ... I also spend my holidays like you in a camping and my tent ... I also slept on many different elements, grass, stones, ice, sand, wood ... and I don't mind. I love so much being so close to nature ...ReplyDelete
WOW! Camping on ice must be really something challenging !!Delete
I'm glad we share similar interests!
Have a nice ,new month!
Υπέροχο θαλασσινό σκηνικό στην αγκαλιά της φύσης. Πολύ ελκυστικές εικόνες, τόσο ζωντανές που θα ήθελα να κάνω μιά βουτιά και να ονειρευτώ και εγώ κάτω από τα αστέρια. Μ'αρέσει πολύ το κάμπιγκ, μου θυμίζει τα πολύ νιάτα μου και ξένοιαστες, ευτυχισμένες διακοπές...Ευχαριστούμε Τίνα, να περάσεις υπέροχα!ReplyDelete
Ευχαριστώ πολύ για το σχόλιό σου και σου εύχομαι καλό μήνα και καλές διακοπές όπου και αν πας.Delete
Το καλοκαιράκι στη χώρα μας είναι πάντα τόσο όμορφο , παρά τις μεγάλες δυσκολίες που περνάμε σαν χώρα :(
All through my childhood almost every holiday we had was a camping one, so I do have a real fondness for it. We have taken our own children on lots of camping trips and they all enjoy it, but it became quite hard work, so we've had a break for a couple of years. Now that they're grown up they share the work, so we may well go camping later this summer. Happy camping! :)ReplyDelete
