I am not really suggesting camping for Christmas. Unless you live in Australia. There I hear it is all the rage. They even have ice cream treats for Christmas Dinner. Just can’t wrap my head around Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream Cake for Christmas!
Camping vs Glamping
Thinking of camping for Christmas just drains the blood out of my face. What a lot of work! I love camping, but taking my house and moving outside provides enough work without adding all the holiday traditions, baking, presents, and the Christmas Tree. (Our Christmas is pretty low key; read about it here. How We de-stressed Christmas and You Can Too)
Just a side note: When camping for Christmas does one bring a tree? Or just decorate the surrounding available foliage with lights and ornaments?
Instead, what about Glamping for Christmas? What is glamping?–glamour camping of course! Made famous with the remodeling of 1950’s travel trailers into little luxurious suites.
Glamping ranges in style from Canvas African Style Safari Tents with colonial wood furniture inside, to space module minimalism with clean lines that even Hal might recognize (Hal is the computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey).
Glampinghub.com offers a way to plan these vacations around the world. With over 15,000 accommodations of 27 different types in 165 countries, they make glamping easy.
Want a tipi in South Africa, done! A tree house in Oregon, it’s ready for you, Christmas Camping in Australia find it here. Recently I spoke with Jessica Armstrong, Head of Public Relations and Partnerships, at glampinghub.com,
Glamping hub started as a travel blog by founder David Troya, in 2011 while finishing his MBA. Shortly after he invited two colleagues to partner with him creating a worldwide booking network of unusual luxury accommodations.
What Kind of Camping Accommodations Can You Expect from Glampinghub.com?
Everything! Yurts with outdoor kitchens, tents with luxury swimming pools, tiny homes surrounded by wilderness and some really cool tree houses and greenhouses in out of the way locations. Almost all locations included a modern bathroom and kitchen with running water–a far cry from me trying to camp in our no bathroom little vintage travel trailer for the holidays.
Need to bring Fido for your Christmas Camping Trip. The Glampinghub.com site offers extensive information about flying with dogs and cats, E.U. pet regulations, and even a public transportation guide for pets. In Seattle for instance:
large and small dogs are allowed on street cars and buses. Small dogs that can fit in their owner’s lap can ride for free. Large dogs are charged the same fare as their owner and should not occupy a seat.
Who knew? I’m not sure our family boxer would go for that. He is a major lap sitter and loves to look out the window. Find him hear not riding on public transport because Colorado only allows small dogs! @thejoyousboxer
Super cool for Christmas, birthdays, weddings or any gift giving situation, Glampinghub.com offers gift certificates! This solves the earlier problem of taking a Christmas Tree camping. Giving the gift of travel requires no tree or no present wrapping. Wait, that solves two Christmas Camping issues and saves the planet. A win-win!
Plan your Glamping vacation this holiday season. Maybe next year at Christmas Dinner in an Australia Outback Glamping site you will enjoy Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream Cake for dessert!
Cheers and Merry Christmas Camping from The Joyous Family!
