Camping in the great outdoors connects us with and allows us to experience nature at its rawest. Fresh air, unspoiled vistas, solitude, freedom from technology, natural beauty and the liberating feeling of the outdoors is incomparable. However, ‘roughing it’, or dealing with annoying bugs, lack of electricity and plumbing, wild animals, uncomfortable and unsanitary conditions, unpredictable weather, cold leaky tents, smelly sleeping bags and questionable food is not so appealing to many. Just ask anyone who’s tried to put on contact lenses inside a small tent without a mirror, water or soap!
The solution: Glamping! – A perfect combination of glamour and camping.
This recent phenomenon has caught on fire because it fuses the best of camping and the best of a well-appointed hotel. When you’re glamping, there’s no tent to pitch in the dark, no fire to build and no burnt hot dogs for dinner. Glamping allows you to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing comfort, civility and even a bit of luxury.
During a typical glamping trip, for example, spacious tents are pitched and ready upon your arrival. They come furnished with large comfortable beds with luxurious linens. The tents are often rigged for electrical power and water. Many glamping locations have bathrooms with running water and toilets! Skilled professional cooks prepare delightful meals for any dietary need or whimsy, ready when you are. Glamping affords outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to finally have unforgettable experiences in stunning natural locations without sacrificing creature comforts. Glamping destinations exist everywhere around the world and range from deluxe tents, to tree houses, to yurts and unique structures.
As with any outdoor adventure, the most important piece of gear to take with you is -sunglasses! Remember to wear your SolarComfort sunglasses, or Solar Shield fits overs or clipons if you wear glasses, while driving to your glamping destination and while on your outdoor escapades. Unlike sun damage on your skin, which results in a burn you can see and feel, you might not feel or see the damaging effect of UV rays on your eyes until faced with an eye disease down the line. Just as you slather sunscreen on your skin, always put on your sunglasses before stepping outside. SolarComfort sunglasses are available in a variety of wrap-around styles which protect your eyes from all angles and are incredibly lightweight and comfortable. If you wear eyeglasses or readers, Solar Shield fits over s and clipons are the perfect solution. They are polarized, offer 100% UVA/UVB protection and are specifically designed to fit right over your glasses.
