Glamour in the bush
Introducing the newest getaway trend: glamping – where glamour meets camping. A style of camping created for people like me. There are things in life I love doing, things I would love to do and things I think I would love but actually don't.
One of those things my adventure-seeking heart thought I'd enjoy was camping. Why did I think I'd love it? Because I love adventure, I like trying new things, I love travelling and I love spending time away with loved ones.
But I didn't love it at all.
Why? Because I'm petrified of wild animals, actually all animals and bugs, and I'm not as connected to nature as I think I am. Setting up tents is a hassle and sleeping bags are uncomfortable. I'm a city girl who likes "luxury".
But nature, glorious beautiful nature how do I connect with thee?
And just like that my prayers have been answered. Enter glamping. Perfect for a city girl like me who still wants to explore the great outdoors without getting her hands dirty.
On Friday I packed my overnight bag and headed to the absolutely beautiful and breathtaking Daylesford. A place that needs to be on your "to see" list and once is never enough.
We booked a night at Cosy Tents, a camp site like no other I've seen.
Entering our tent was like entering a hotel room in the bush. Comfortable bed, plenty of pillows, table and chairs, set of towels, a charger for your phone and a light! Also extra blankets for those cold nights and a hot water bottle too. All this with Daylesford as a backdrop – bliss!
