Basic Essentials for Glamping

Thursday, August 11, 2016

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.

  1. Carry-on luggage
  2. 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.
  3. Bring three shoes, such as sandals, sneakers, and dressy shoes.
  4. One bathing suit
  5. One jacket or sweater. Depending on where you are going, you might take a windbreaker.
  6. Make sure all the clothes you bring coordinate with each other so you can mix and match to create different outfits.
  7. One nightwear
  8. One denim pants
  9. One shorts
  10. One leggings
  11. 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.
  12. Tank top and/or camisole
  13. 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.
  14. Sunhat, cap, or knit hat.
  15. Knit scarf or linen scarf, depending on the weather conditions.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. You might want to bring your own towels.
  20. 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.

    Glamping? How does it differ from camping? Outdoor camping I really love join. I am used to going to Boy Scout camping. As a Scout Master or Institutional Head of our school, I always join with our boy scouts whenever they camp.

      “Glamping” is a portmanteau of “glamour” and “camping.” It’s a style of luxury camping for those who don’t want to “rough it” in the bush. These are people who often bring everything but the kitchen sink for a weekend in the woods. They recreate the inside of their home at the campsite!

      i wrote another post earlier to explain Glamping, and i also did a video for for that post, as well.

      That is the point I want to know. English language is a growing language. Writers may have the license to create a new word by combining a word to another word. Dictionary makers are always searching new words everywhere and update their dictionary. Filipinos are very inventive in making pun of words. The new President has recently coined the word, “shabu-lize” that means there is a supply of shabu or converting the place as the receiving of the prohibited drugs. Example, many have killed in “shabulized” barangay in San Jose town when the police operatives raided the hot place.

      i dont know who creates these new words, like Glamping or others that i have come across now and then. maybe the fashion industry and media. there was another word in fashion that has to do with camouflage but with floral print.

      The more read, the more new words you are going to meet. I remember when I was in my 6th grade. I had a separate notebook for words I encounter while reading. I put a label to its cover, “My New Found Words”. However, those words would be losing their significance once you leave them. Meaning, you should use them in writing, in speaking, or even the word factor game or scrablle.

      Glamping isnt an important real word. it is more creative stuff, and i think it tends to be trendy and for fun. i pick up real words when i read novels. that is why it is important to read a lot of books.

    I have seen some really outrageous items for glamping. many glampers use inflatable furniture like couches. They also bring along a power source, so they can use their hair dryer, TV, computer, video game console, etc.
