Community Herald: Putting the glamour in camping

IMG_7501Here’s where my two worlds collide. In my spare time I’m an enthusiastic ‘glamper’ and blogger. The two hobbies came together a couple of years ago and it’s since evolved. I’ve been asked to write a summer series on glamping for the Community Herald.

Here’s my first ever column: Thanks for adventuring along!

Meet the East Coast Glampers

We are not about luxurious European bell tents with room service and pot-bellied stoves.

But we are about buntings, cooking with local fare and getting down with nature, infusing European glamping style, a.k.a. ‘glamorous camping’, into our Maritime camping adventures.

We are East Coast Glampers, an online blog about sharing glamping tips, tricks and inevitable blunders, with the hope our mishaps won’t become yours.

After moving to Nova Scotia from Ireland almost three years ago, we now spend our summers in search of ‘beautiful places to get lost’, while finding ways to ensure a camping holiday is a holiday for the entire family.

Fancy trying a little glamping?  Here’s a few tips to get your family started.

East Coast Glampers is guest blogging for DIY Passion on Halifax Bloggers in August, showing how to make Glamping Lap Mats for dining around the campfire.

This is the first of a seven part series appearing in the Community Herald.

Happy glamping!
