Glamour meets camping – you get glamping. Thanks dear sparkle girl Missy for the term. It’s been a little over a week that we’ve been living in our tent. It’s meant for eight people. We have three rooms, so to say, and enough space to feel comfy – come rain or sunshine.
We spent a week in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. A lovely seaside destination with a super long sandy beach. Ever since Sunday we have been at a campground in between Boston and Cape Cod in Massachusetts. At both destinations we got rain the first night after our arrival. In Maine the rainy nights lasted for three days, and we’re topped off with a thunderstorm.
I had never slept in a tent before, at least not at a campground, and I’m very positively surprised at how well I’m adjusting to this kind of accommodation. Sleeping out in fresh air is something everyone should try. Gives you such a sound zzz. People had warned me about the challenges of being able to stay chic. Not an issue for me. I’ve worn make-up when wanted, or pretty dresses and such. I’ve treated myself to my weekly peeling and facial mask – and my nails continue to be neatly varnished.
Meeting new people is very easy and natural at a campsite. In Maine I made a new friend, possibly even a future client. It can be amusing to observe different people’s daily lives – and just to relax, realizing how much I have been blessed with so far. Here as you live very much in touch with the nature, things somehow become chicly clear.
