How to glam up your camping experience!

Last week me and Aron celebrated 5 wonderful years together. In these five short years we’ve traveled the world together, got married, moved to 7 different places, started a blog, worked together several different jobs, laughed, cried, and grown more than I thought possible.

Although we spent the whole day celebrating, I wanted to surprise Aron the upcoming weekend. So… I found a house-tent to buy and asked him to come “glamping” with me. For you who are unaware of what glamping is, it’s basically just glamorous & camping put together in one word. So, buying the largest tent I found, bringing our garden furniture with us, watching TV shows in the night, playing chess and drinking good wine, having the heater on all night and finding literally the most magical camping site ever (Seljalandsfoss) all played a part of our little “glamping” experience.




  

  
  







  




Here are a few things I recommend you take with you if you’re wanting to glam up the regular camping experience!

A heater

If you live somewhere cold like I do, bring a heater. What a life changer. Seriously.

Get a tent you can stand up in

Then you have a space to hang out in when it rains or the wind blows.

Bring your computer

Eat chocolate and drink fancy wine while you watch your favorite TV show’s in the night.

Bring a French press and a cattle

Because starting the day in the nature with hot coffee is just as amazing as it sounds.

Bring furniture

Because you deserve to sit in a chair like a civilized person.

Take chess and other board games with you

Because yelling “I WIN” is all apart of the experience.

Sleep on an airbed

They help to keep the cold from the ground from penetrating your restful night. And don’t forget the electric pump!

Bring candles!

And even a lamp to light up the tent better at night.

What would you add to the list? Hope your guys are having a great week so far! We just started a Snapchat account last week!  Add "justus.is" to connect!
