Camping is brilliant but everyone has to admit there are times during every camping trip that aren’t enjoyable. We’ve put together a list of genius ideas to ensure every moment of your camping trip is fantastic!
Stock up on cheap shower caps. You know, like those ones you get free in hotel rooms? The ones that your Nanna loves? However we don’t think you should use them to protect your coiffure in the shower. We think they are far more useful for keeping your muddy shoes together and stopping the mud finding its way all around the tent!
We have all bought one of these organisers with the best intentions of using them. But they are still in their original packaging, tucked away a lonely cupboard somewhere gathering dust. Well! Dust them off and pack them for your camping trip. Rummaging around an already cramped tent for your socks or your swimming costume is the most frustrating thing ever. Nothing feels tidy or organised and you never find what you’re looking for. Hang up one of these babies allocate a section for socks, another for underwear, another for swimwear etc and you’ll be able to put your hand on what you need when you need it!
Take some sage. You can use it to enhance your cooking if you wish, but we were thinking more to use as a gnat repellent. Burning sage is apparently a good way to keep biting insects at bay. It’s worth a try, there’s nothing worse than an itchy insect bite.
Travelling light? Then pack like a pro. We found these instructions from someone who takes a whole outfit inside a pair of socks. We salute you.
A bog in a bag. You might think you’ll never use it, but trust us, you will.
If your camping trip is still lacking a certain something, nip down to The Bowgie for a swift pint…it’s sure to help you see things in a more positive light.
