Favorite Thing This Week: "Glamping"

Cc-bed-reverse

We love camping; the romance, the communing with rugged nature, all that sort of thing. But we struggle with actually sleeping on a thin mat on rough ground in some forsaken dark wood, unable to really get clean. And so "Glamping" sounds very nice indeed, being a rather obvious and delightful mix of glamour and camping, in that order.

It doesn't quite match the space and comfort of Harry, Hermione and Ron's tent in HP7 (though really, they could have done much more with the rooms; some nice flowers, a throw or two, a print on the wall...) but the BBC has highlighted some of the best glamorous camp offerings around, from the upscale Furnace Creek "inn" in Death Valley, thru some raised tents (showers are communal, which is better than a box of wet wipes) in Yosemite, to the truly fancy Blackfoot Valley in Montana. The tents have king-sized beds, master bathrooms and electricity, which is really what the outdoors should be all about. Shown above is the view out of the tent door. Sadly it doesn't all fold into a magical backpack to be taken somewhere new, but you can't have everything...
