Linens and Towels
Not all glamping sites you go to may have the basic amenities such as linen or towel. There is no substitute for clean linens and towels especially when they are of your own. Check with the glamping site to see what are the amenities they provide and whether it includes fresh linens and towels.
The Appropriate Footwear
Glamorous or not, your glamping trip may include outdoor trips and for that, you have to trade your stylish shoes with practical ones. However, you also need to get a comfortable pair of footwear inside your camps too. You wouldn’t want to bring in the dirt and grime from the outside into your pretty little tent, do you?
The Right Clothing
When packing the clothing items, you should always check the weather or what is the particular season, you also need to plan the particular activities that you may plan. If it is winter and it is unbearably cold, you may have to consider layering. It can get particularly chilly in the evenings so pack something appropriate to keep yourself snug outside and even inside of the tents. Remember to pack a swimsuit too, especially when your glamping site is located near a water body such as lakes or rivers.
While this may seem a little strange for you to pack some edibles and bring them along with you, it is always good to bring something with you, especially when there may not be any grocery stores or restaurants nearby. The glamping site may only cater to your main meals what if you get hungry in between?
So, bring your food accordingly. Instead of bringing a lot of junk foods along with you be smart about your snacks. Bring protein bars, nuts, seeds, or protein powders along with you. Pack only the dry stuff because you do not know whether your glamping tent will provide a refrigerator. So, get foods that do not require special storage facilities. Bring enough, that may last you for the trip and not get over before your trip gets over.
