could use another vacay…glamping!

So I shouldn’t complain.  We spent a nice long weekend on the southern coast of Cambodia last weekend (a post on that soon!).  But on this Friday, after a hectic week of satisfying stakeholders and various emotions revolving around this often munitions-filled field of “health system strengthening,” I’m feeling a little in need of a respite.  Which is why we’ve got the weekend, right?

And with the humidity and the heat swirling around Phnom Penh at the mo’, I also realised I miss those cooler temperatures and the fun and natural wonders of the life au naturel.  I would so love to spend the weekend hiking in a national park like the ones back home, a nice dense forest, with all of my best buddies who are currently located in the 4 corners of the world.  And perhaps even glamping too?  Yunno glamping right? That’s camping with a little flash! (Check out more glamping style here!) And probably a lot more money than regular camping.

Just imagine it – wouldn’t it be nice to go on a long hike to find a comfortable abode like the ones set up by the very cool Shelter Co.?  This Cali-based lodging service provides the flash of canvas tents and catering that turn camping into glamping.  I would just love to end a long hike in the woods to a trifecta of glammed-up tents (or even a yurt!), roaring fire and delicious food all ready for me and my besties under the stars and the dark dense forest.   I’d probably be decked out in a heck of a lot of Roots or an outfit like this…

Oh how nice it is to dream.  Even better under the stars…
