Did you know there is such a thing as Romantic Camping?
Maybe its only for people who don’t have children.......
How romantic is camping? Apparently quite a bit judging by the amount of information out there on this topic. When I think "camping", the idea of romance doesn't even enter my head for a minute. I am not sure if the word "romance" has entered my partner's head ever!
The Livestrong site (the Lance Armstrong foundation) has a topic called “How to Plan a Romantic Night in a Tent: with performance enhancing drugs”
|Lance says yes to romance (and drugs)|
Well, the drugs reference isn’t technically part of this article, but might prove to be a worthwhile addition to the romance aspect in the tent.
The article suggests:
“take along tea light candles in Mason jars; several camping lanterns; nice pillows, linens and towels; elegant dishes, silverware and glassware; and sexy clothing to wear in the evening. “
Hopefully not suggesting that those candles go inside your tent, as the tent catching on fire, could be a real romance-killer.
Still not sure how to make that camping trip more romantic? There is a book dedicated to it. You can brush up your romance techniques by reading the book, titled, surprisingly, “Romantic Camping”. Have I read it? No. If you have though, would love to hear about it.
And if you are still keen on pursuing this romance idea, then “What to bring on a Romantic Camping trip” article, may help you! One suggestion: lavender scented pillows. And a camera (so much I could say here, but will refrain from doing so).

Overall, the articles on romantic camping, definitely focus on those people who don’t have the kiddies around! The idea of sleeping late, enjoying the serenity of being in nature, peaceful time looking at the stars as you sit around the campfire becomes a little bit trickier if you have the kidlets with you.
Good luck to those of you who do create some camping romance in your lives!
