Most of us really enjoy the concept of camping – sleeping under the stars, becoming one with nature, toasting marshmallows over the campfire – but it’s the reality of the situation that keeps the masses from pitching their tents (think showerless days with dirty feet, slurping down lukewarm beverages, and having to answer nature’s call, well, in nature). But what if there was a way to redefine roughing it – to head out into the wild in style? Fortunately now there is, thanks to a new batch of luxury camping (or, “glamping” – glamorous camping) outfits that have recently emerged at amazing outdoor locations around the globe. Serving to fine-tune a blend of convenience, comfort, and pampering in the great outdoors, rustic luxury is no longer an oxymoron. So go ahead and trade in those tin-can baked beans for chef-prepared filet mignon and musty sleeping bags for luxurious tent accommodations (mattress and fine linens included) – now if only the camp butler could do something about those pesky mosquitoes (who sadly do not discern between luxury and regular ole campsites), we'd all be happy campers.
