Let’s Go Glamping: Tips For Planning Your First Trip!

If you’ve heard a lot about glamping and have always wanted to go, maybe now could be the perfect time. Glamping is, in many ways, just like camping - it’s the same sort of lifestyle, just with some added luxuries. So if you don’t like camping, glamping may not be for you. If however, you don’t mind camping but miss your home comforts, glamping could be perfect for you.


Just like camping, glamping requires a lot of planning, so to help you plan your first glamping trip, we’ve put together this handy guide. Have a read, take note, and you can plan the most incredible trip.

Work out what you have to spend
First things first, you need to determine the size of your budget. This is important, as this will impact the type of glamping trip that you are able to plan. So it’s crucial that you calculate your budget so that you can plan the perfect trip that’s within your price range. The most popular glamping options tend to be wooden lodges and caravaning, as these accommodation options come with the most home comforts. However, compared to bell tents, they do tend to be more expensive. But the added features that come with them, such as cooking equipment and bathroom facilities, are all it takes.


Where do you plan on going?

If you plan on traveling while glamping, a caravan could be the perfect option. Caravanning can be a lot of fun and a great way to travel - to learn more about what’s involved in caravaning, visit the Caravan Industry Association website and have a browse. If, however, you plan on staying in one place, then a wooden lodge or bell tent could also be a good option, depending on your budget and the home comforts that you want to have access to.


How long do you want to be away for?
The length of your trip is important to consider as the longer you plan on being away for, the more home comforts you will probably want access to. The chances are that if you’re only planning a two-day trip, you won’t care too much about the facilities your accommodation has. However, if you’re planning a longer trip, then you will most probably want access to better facilities, to make your trip more enjoyable.


Who do you want to travel with?

It’s also important to determine who you plan on traveling with. This is important, as when it comes to selecting your accommodation, you need to take the time to consider who you are traveling with. You need to take into account their thoughts on your accommodation, as well as your own. Otherwise, traveling together won’t work well. Sit down together and discuss what your priorities are when it comes to accommodation, as that way you can make sure that you both get a fair say in where you stay and what accommodation you pick.


There you have it, everything that you need to know about planning your first glamping trip.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…

Give Them Plenty Of Exercise First of all, it’s important to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. That doesn’t just entail taking them for a walk every now and then - larger dogs will require a long walk of at least an hour twice a day, which is a really significant time commitment and something that you should consider when you’re deciding what sort of dog to adopt. If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua? You’ll still need to make sure that they get out for plenty of exercise but it won’t be as taxing on you.
