    5 Reasons Why You Have To Give Glamping A Go

    5 Reasons Why You Have To Give Glamping A Go

    This year Stoke Travel is launching Glamping, which is camping but totally like so glamorous, babes. There’s nothing wrong with our camps — they’re fine, they’re fantastic — but we’ve found that sometimes Stoke Travellers have a little spare change rattling around in their pockets and they want to spend it on some creature comforts. If there’s one thing that Stoke Travel does well it’s attract creatures to our camps and now we’re going to make you even comfortable. Giddy UP!

    1. More comfortable bedding when Glamping at Pamplona

    The Running Of The Bulls is taxing on the body. The run itself is a test of athleticism and mental stability, and the days after it are long boozy danceathons in busy Spanish streets. You’re tired, both physically and emotionally and you’re one day into a three-day trip. You want to rest your weary bones before you again offer them up to the half-tonne horned running machines that make this party infamous. Stoke’s air mattresses are comfortable, and the sleeping bags most definitely do the job, but the raised glamping beds with their fitted sheets and pillows are on another level and will really aid the post-bull-run/pre-bull-run recovery process, making you less likely to be steamrolled by beasts the next time you don the whites and take to the streets.

    2. Glamping in Munich is warmer than not Glamping

    Oktoberfest actually mostly takes part in September, as the Germans knew that sliding the festival forward from its originally later date would take advantage of the warmer weather. That said, Munich is a tempestuous mistress at this time of the year, and there’s always a day when the temperature shifts from too-hot to bloody-cold. Now this doesn’t really matter at the time, as we’re generally full to the top with Bavarian beer and that takes your mind off the chill, but Oktoberfest is at the end of the summer, and you’re exhausted and have probably earned a sleep in, and we all know that sleep ins are easier when you’re snug and warm, and so in addition to the aforementioned comfortable bedding, our Oktoberfest Glamping also comes with an electric heater to really bring your tent’s temperature up to a reasonable level.

    3. It’s cooler Glamping at La Tomatina

    It’s 2pm and it’s already been a long day of dodging tomatoes and making out with sexy Spaniards. Your belly is full of tomato-juice shrapnel and sangria, and you’ve got a big night ahead of you at the official La Tomatina after party. It’s time for a siesta, but by jove it’s too fucking hot. It’s Valencia, by the end of summer, and it’s warm. Your fellow Stokies are laying around on the grass, under trees, for while their tents are lovely and cool by night, the middle of the day resembles a pottery kiln in the middle of the Sahara. The Glamping, however, comes with an electric fan, and so you retreat back to your palace and let the artificial breeze run over your red-stained body.

    4. Surf camp Glamping gives you more space

    Crawling in and out of a tent is par for the surf camping course, but when it comes to getting decked out in your wetsuit, the low ceilings might cramp your style and every other part of your body. Glamping allows all but the very tall to pretty much stand up, meaning that you don’t need to contort into all kinds of shapes just to get your rubber on. There’s also a mirror inside so you can see just how you’d look as a superhero before you go and make a complete dork of yourself getting each and every orifice filled with sand and seawater.

    5. And that works just fine for hook ups

    All of it, together, will help your pick-up game. The mirror and the space to change like a French duke, the warmth or coolness you can offer any temporary roommates, the comfort of the beds, the aesthetic appeal of Glamping with all the fairy lights and the status that comes with having a Stoke Travel butler at your beck and call 24-hours a day. The electricity with which you can charge your phone, and the WiFi you can use to get on Tinder. Basically, if you can’t hook up while Glamping, either with someone you’ve known for a long time, or a complete stranger, then maybe you’ve got to rethink how you hook up. Just saying.

    Like we said, there’s nothing wrong with Stoke Travel’s general camping options — in fact we’re by far the best in the business for both inclusions and price — but sometimes you want to spoil yourself and not miss out on the fun of the Stoke Travel camp experience, and for that Glamping is your best option. Why don’t you go over here and check out prices, etc, and get yourself one of Stoke Travel’s more glamorous camping experiences.
