While watching some videos, I noticed more videos about Glamping, which includes Glamping Essentials. So, I decided to create my own video, which is about packing light for trips. Since glamping is about comfy camping because you are likely to have whatever you need, whether you are glamping in a hotel, motel, tent city camping area, RV, van, or a cabin in the mountains. These glamping trips are usually for a weekend excursion or a one-week trip. So, pack accordingly and don’t overdo it because you aren’t likely to use everything you take with you. Before you start packing, consider the weather condition of the location as well as the activities you will be doing, and pack accordingly for the amount of days you will stay at that location.
- Carry-on luggage
- Small bottles for traveling, in which you can place your shampoo, conditioner, and lotion as well as a box for your toothbrush and a mini toothpaste tube. You might also add razor, small bar of soap, and basic makeup as well as underwear.
- Bring three shoes, such as sandals, sneakers, and dressy shoes.
- One bathing suit
- One jacket or sweater. Depending on where you are going, you might take a windbreaker.
- Make sure all the clothes you bring coordinate with each other so you can mix and match to create different outfits.
- One nightwear
- One denim pants
- One shorts
- One leggings
- One dress, such as a wrap dress that you can wrap into 10 or more different dresses, skirts or tunics. You can also wear it with jeans and leggings as a tunic. And, you can wear it over a tank top or camisole.
- Tank top and/or camisole
- It is best to put together a layered outfit, where you can wear the whole outfit in the morning, and you can start taking pieces off for a lighter look if it warms up in the afternoon.
- Sunhat, cap, or knit hat.
- Knit scarf or linen scarf, depending on the weather conditions.
- Tote bag and backpack, where you can put all your makeup, skincare, and toiletries in your tote bag. Backpack might include your wallet, book, iPhone, iPad, camera, chargers, notebook, pocket calendar, card deck, pens, and pencils.
- If there is a grocery store in the location you will be visiting, and I am sure there is, unless you plan to go somewhere in the middle of nowhere, do you food shopping when you arrive at the location. Don’t take too much food with you, unless you want your snacks or you have special health needs. If you do have special health needs, then make sure you take enough medicine for your condition to last for the duration.
- You might also add a hammock and folding chairs as well as sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets, especially if you aren’t planning to stay in a hotel, motel, or cabin.
- You might want to bring your own towels.
- First aid kit with basics for emergencies.
I created a Basic Essentials for Glamping video for fun. I added the R&B Soul music, Cruise by John Deley and the 41 Players, which is almost three minutes long, although my video is a little bit longer at about five minutes long.
