The word “glamping” in the spring of wanders on the Internet. Glamorous camping is a new trend in tourism, comfort combined with romance.
If the word is foreign, then the phenomenon is described in the framework of the Varangian theory. Supposedly so loved to relax the British colonists: put in the middle of the native local color tents with all European amenities and received exotic and comfort in one bottle. Then the Americans went on Safari to Africa with their own facilities. And then all this appeared in Russia.
In fact, glamping is our native, post-Soviet phenomenon. It is a natural consequence and a hybrid of romance of the 60s and lawlessness of the 90s.

But for 20 years, the public is partly fed up, partly came under the distribution of the crisis and sanctions — and romance again became fashionable.

And if the problem of combining “grandmother” with a five-star hotel partly solved cottage villages and eco-hotels, the tents came lining. On the one hand, I want romance. On the other — romance without a toilet, hot water and WiFi is not everyone under force. And here there is glamping — the same tents in the deep forest, but with warm floors, charging for the phone and a platform under the grill (because the current legislation and safety rules do not allow to make fires directly in the forest).

Late summer. Deckchair. Family beach expensive hotel and Spa. Dozing off under the giant brim of my hat while the kids have fun with the animators. And suddenly: “Pis-piss, come on, daughter, pee in the stones, no one is looking”… And I immediately moved to Anapa. Mid 80’s, city beach.
