Glamping

05.11.10

Um. Can I please have a re-do on my honeymoon?

I love the idea of ironed sheets, fine china, and the great outdoors.

Are you the camping type? Are you not? I’m curious to hear from campers and non-campers alike, are you tempted?

Don’t redo your honeymoon, just plan another!

Hubster and I married and honeymooned in Las Vegas, then trekked back to Texas via Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. Fun times. But, for our 10-year anniversary next year, I think I shall plan something fun. Not that the first honeymoon was not fun — it was a blast! But, I think a tent with twinkling lights on the beach with time to create art and go for a walk is more my speed these days.

And yes, we are campers and will be pitching our tent next week with the scouts. My hubby likes the great outdoors so much and is such a dreamy type, that the thought of living in a yurt has been on our bucket list. We might not live in one, but I sure hope to stay in one someday.

Thank you for all the lovely ideas!

Sherry! You are the woman. That is one impressive honeymoon. But i’m with you, twinkling lights on the beach sounds pretty good to me.

And so funny you mentioned art. I’ve been bugging Brent to tell him on our next getaway I just want to write, read, and draw.

Good luck with the scouts! And congrats on almost 10 years!!

I think I want a honeymoon re-do as well. We drove all over Ireland, which was beautiful – but we spent the majority of the time in the tiny car. I would have preferred going to one spot, wandering the hills and lounging.

Oooh, we went glamping for our honeymoon. We stayed here: http://www.elcapitancanyon.com/ in Santa Barbara, California and it was awesome.

Not the camping type but if camping looked like any of the images you found I’d sign up in a heartbeat.

I’m not a fan of the word “glamping” but I could get very used to the action… I love camping but I could live the paired down lifestyle with very comfortable surroundings. I would have to move to a more amenable climate, however. :-)

We do go camping, so I am the camping type, but nothing as glamorous and romantic as these images. Now you’ve done it…I’ll have to cutie things up now. If I were going on a camping honeymoon this would definitely be the way to go! Comfort!

I linked to this post today because I just posted about a girls scout camp out I went on. I’d much prefer this kind of camp out. Thanks.

i love each one more than the last. it may seem contradictory, but luxurious camping is the way to go. truth be told, i love camping anyways! but the thought of being comfortable sipping on champagne while hearing the crickets tweet and watching the grass sway sounds heavenly. xo!

Gorgeous — these look like wonderful places to live, forget about just camping! P.S. I wanted to thank you for Mountain Mike’s Magic — you’re right; it’s like magic. Our 7 year old likes it so much he actually blogged about it!

Shady grove,
I totally agree. I could move right in.

Wahoo. I am so thrilled you, and especially your 7-year-old liked Mtn Mike’s sage wisdom! And thanks for dropping by to let me know! We’ve been trying to keep it up, and I find we’re all in better moods, more respectful and plain happier when we do it right.

I love camping but glamping would be more my style of my husband wouldn’t think I was a wuss. I try to glam camping up as much as I can.

Oh man, we went camping (NOT glamping) at the start of our honeymoon, and it started the downhill slide to sickness, antibiotics, reactions, anaphylaxis, and hospitals. I think this kind of camping would have prevented all of that! And why yes, I have been dreaming of a honeymoon re-do ever since.

Fabulous! My daughter is looking to go glamping for a night or two on her honeymoon to California. She’s been trying to find a spot right on the beach. Would you know of anything like that?
ps I love the little pink-flowered tent!

oooh, Julie. what an adventure. Is your daughter looking for a place with the tent and bed already set up? If not, I’ve heard Dylan beach and also Monterey have good spots. I’m sure there are warmer spots in SoCal. But if so, check out these. two. posts from a favorite blogger to get you going.
