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!!
