Carry on Glamping

On September 25, 2008 by

Some people hate camping. The thought of spending a couple of days in a canvas box with bugs crawling hither and yon over their cold, clammy body fills them with terror. Ergo, camping is often regarded as more of a convenience than something fashioned from the ethereal threads of dream and reverie.

From the music festival to the French countryside, campsites are as multitudinous as any hotel chain, and often provide their services at a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately, camping has always lacked the glamour associated with a high-priced hotel and was never likely to draw anybody with money to burn.
