Borgloon in Belgium has been pumping after the current pandemic. In fact, it has motivated more people to try out camping. The campsite offers a teardrop-shaped tent that hangs from a tree. They are more of an elite and artistic kind of camping rather than something that can be bought and put up anywhere. The tents usually sell out each year but this year they sold out much faster than they usually do. Each tent holds two people and has access to a bathroom as well as a barbeque. The tents were designed by Dutch artist Dre Wapenaar and have also made their way to the United States. What a fun and innovative way to get away in your own hometown.
Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales- these are the places where you can find the newest take on luxurious camping, glamping. These glamping pods differ from country to country but all have a different take on a one of a kind experience. Whether it be hilltop huts or pods on an organic farm these glamping pods include king-size beds, jacuzzi’s, and a stunning view of nature regardless of which one you pick. These are a great option at any time of the year as these pods are designed to keep you dry if any rain were to fall. There are different campsites suited for your needs meaning somewhere you will have to bring your own sleeping bags, fire tools, and the necessary equipment. However, some glamping sites offer you huge beds, towels, sheets, and barbeques- sometimes even jacuzzi’s.
Europe is opening up their ski resorts for the summer- with necessary protocols in place, of course. France, Austria, and Switzerland have begun to open their high altitude resorts. Of course, it is summertime so these resorts are home to snow-sure glaciers allowing the activity to be possible. The French resort Val d’Isere in the alps is one of the slopes on the list, as well as the Zell am See which is based on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier in Austria. These resorts reported snowfall overnight during lockdown periods and are foreseeing promising ski conditions for a while. If skiing is for you get booking because some resorts are offering a 10% discount on lift tickets to celebrate reopening!
