Ok, so I have never been one for camping. Meaning I have never thought about going for a break away and said I want to go camping. But the opportunity has arisen fo my family and I to go for a ‘glamping weekend!’

My husbands lovely friends have offered us a belated wedding gift, to pay for us and our kids to go with them to what looks like a beautiful camp ground in East Sussex this June; and stay in their bell tent.

I jumped at the idea of a new adventure and think it will be a great family get away.

I have thought about my love for camper vans and one day going camping in one, so I’m not adverse to the idea. I just have no idea what I should take, wear or really what to expect. From looking at a glamping experience to a camping one, I definitely think as a camping rookie, glamping is the way to go. (For me anyway)

So what’s the difference?

Camping definition:

Learner’s definition of CAMPING

“glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’ (Found on google)


So here we go. I’m really looking forward to it! Fingers crossed for good weather, and thank you to my hubbies lovely friends for a great wedding gift!

Will let you know how it goes 🙂
