    I just returned from the 32day camping and i can tell you that you will have the best time if you choose to go camping. Yes there will be stuff that goes wrong but you will make some awesome friends and have the best experience Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> For most of our trip we used the same facilites as the concept people we just had to put up tents, which are so easy you’ll be an expert in no time! My best tip is to pack light you’ll accumulate so much stuff along the way even if like me you didnt intend to! Oh and toilet paper keep some on youm it might sound stupid but believe it or not its not found in some toilets!!

    Thanks so much Blocky Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I recently did a concept tour, so I know about packing light, making friends and the awesome experience in general ~ like school camp all over again! Some people aren’t keen in the idea of camping, but I think it’s all about the experience and to go camping in a range of different countries is pretty unique and special I think.

    I wanted to go in June but so many spots have been booked over the last week or so! Now I’m hoping to go in August.

    Camping refers to an outdoor leisure activity staying outdoors and enjoying. The people who participate in such activities are called campers. Winter camping is one of the toughest types of camping but at the same time it is the most adventurous and exciting one. Winter camping is only meant for young people, who are full of adventures and have a strong determination. I like camping.

    I’m thinking of going on this tour in June 14. There are still seats available. Are there any specific tips for women during the camping tours?

    I might be doing the one on June 14th. My friend might not go anymore and am thinking of doing it solo. Explorer 1231905 are you doing it solo? Anyone who has done the tour solo do you recommend it or should I wait another year or 2?
