Man: Alice, you look so relaxed! How was your camping holiday with your friends?
I wasn’t camping. I was glamping.Man: Glamping? What’s that?
It’s luxury camping. My tent, for example, was huge – about 50 sq.m. It had
electricity, a fridge, a cooker and a bed. The bathroom was outside, just a few steps
away from the tent. There was also a place for a campfire.Man: Wow! Did you have to put your tent up by yourself?
No, everything was ready when we arrived. I didn’t need to take anything with me
except for clothes – the bed had clean sheets and pillows. There were also fresh
towels.Man: So, it’s like staying in a hotel, isn’t it?
Not really. The tents were located in the middle of a forest, next to a small stream.
There was no road, so we couldn’t get there by car. We had to walk for an hour
to get to the site.Man: And how did you spend your time there?
We spent most of the time outside in the fresh air. There was a mountain bike rental
so on one of the days we had an exciting race in the forest. Another day we had
a volleyball match. In the evenings we hung out around the campfire, playing
the guitar and singing songs.Man: Sounds like fun! But tell me, is glamping expensive?
Well, it was a bit pricey but it was still cheaper than staying at a hotel. And more fun,
too! Next year I’ll definitely do it again. It’s a great option for me because I love
spending time in nature.
