Canadian girls don’t shy away from loading up the car with a tent and heading to a provincial park for a weekend of camping. Sleeping under the stars, all snuggled up in a tent is very refreshing, but there is a ton of work involved, especially if you’re the ‘organizer’ in your friend group. We used to go camping once or twice every summer but for the past few years trips abroad have taken precedence over camping – honestly, an all inclusive down south is less work and stress than camping. Lately I’ve become enamoured by the idea of ‘glamping’ (glamourous camping…or camping for brats) – sleeping under the stars in a beautiful canvas tent, with all the comfort of home! You can glamp all over the world (surf + yoga retreat in Portugal anyone?) but really I just like the idea of staying in Ontario – we do have the best camping in the world!
Canada is a spectacularly gorgeous country. Lauren and I have been travelling so much lately we needed a reminder of how blessed we are to have such bountiful nature in our backyard. Especially in the beginning of Spring, coming out of winter for me is like breaking out of a long-ass hibernation, feeling like a raging hangover. Unless you are living in parts of the country where the landscape is hard to miss like beautiful British Columbia or Amazing Alberta, you can easily forget to simply “get outdoors”. What better way to kick the winter blues and escape the concrete jungle than go for a good old wander where the wifi is weak but the views are everything?
