There’s nothing that quite like the feeling of packing up the car on a Friday afternoon and hitting the road for an adventure. Is there anything better than falling asleep under the stars with the fire crackling and waking up with a warm mug of tea to the chorus of birds chirping? We don’t think so, but if you need any more convincing to escape the hustle and bustle, here’s 6 reasons why you should dust off your tent and get outdoors this weekend.
Try a New Activity
It’s easy to forget in our everyday lives how much benefit there is to breathing in some fresh air and immersing ourselves in nature. Setting off on a camping trip is the perfect time to try a new activity, or pick back up a hobby. Whether it’s hiking, canoeing or swimming that takes your fancy, there’s no shortage of ways to immerse yourself in the great outdoors. When heading out on your adventures, don’t forget to pack your W+W Double- Wall Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle in your daypack to keep hydrated while you take it all in.
Get Creative in the Kitchen
And by kitchen, we’re talking about the campfire! Whether you’re slow cooking your camp chili over the hot coals, setting up the hotplate over the flames for a grill or mastering the recipe for the perfect S’more, there is nothing quite as grounding as this rustic style of cooking. No matter how experimental you get with your campfire feasts, with the W+W Stainless Steel Cutlery Tool and Collapsible Bowl Set you’ll always be prepared to tuck in to your delicious campfire creations.
It’s Easy on Your Wallet
There are few weekend getaways that won’t leave a dent in your bank account, but camping is one of the most affordable vacation options out there. Between cooking for yourself, free camping or staying in a National Park and taking up outdoor activities, you’ll be hard pressed to find a need to pull out your credit card once you’ve pulled up to camp. If you’re looking for a budget friendly vacation that will still leave you with memories that will last a lifetime then camping might just be the trip for you!
Become a Morning Person (For a Day)
Waking up to the sounds of nature as the sun peeks over the horizon is one of the truly magical moments of a camp trip. Even if you’re not an early riser, embracing the stillness of this time of day is one move you won’t regret. If it’s a little chilly then there’s no better time to stoke the fire, boil some water and make yourself a nice mug of tea, coffee or hot cocoa in your W+W Mug with Carabiner Multi Tool. All that’s left to do is sit back, relax and soak it all in.
You Can Bring Your Furry Friend!
What’s better than an outdoor escape? An outdoor escape with your dog of course! There are many options out there if you’re wanting to bring your furry friend along on your camping trip and although it may require a little extra planning upfront to find a suitable location, it will all be worthwhile when you see the look of excitement on your dog's face when they find out they’re coming along for the adventure.
Disconnect and Unwind
Living in a time with endless sources of stimulation, both from work and entertainment, means that we are often running on overdrive. Whether you’re heading out to the woods, the mountains or lakeside there’s no better time to turn off your phone, leave your laptop at home and embrace a slower pace of life in nature. With W+W’s Travel Hammock Set as part of your camp setup, it will be hard to resist spending a day, feet up with a good book in hand.
