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.

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).

There is office etiquette, rules of conduct at the table and even the rules of phone calls! Passion.ru introduces you to etiquette on the beach. Enjoy your health!
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. But even then, all my insides protested against non-compliance with basic standards of behavior on the beach, regardless of whether you are a baby or a lady in the “last attack of youth.”

In the plane
Ignore flight attendants ‘ instructions
If you are asked to raise the curtain of the window, turn on the mode “in the plane”, raise the back of the chair and remove the headphones, then do not consider that you belong to the caste of the elite, who can miss these requirements. They are made for your safety. Most unforeseen situations occur on takeoff and landing, which means that at this point you should be awake and hear the instructions of flight attendants. And, of course, keep in mind that the music creates a load on the eardrums, and games when climbing or lowering become the cause of dizziness and nausea.
To create situations of conflict
In a confined space, and even at an altitude of 10 thousand meters, many people experience anxiety, so react more acutely to any stimuli and behave strangely. In order not to replenish their number and not to Wake the slumbering dragon in the neighbor, do not drink alcohol before the flight (alcohol acts on the body differently when you fly), do not stamp your foot in time with the music (your neighbors are irritated by the vibration of the seats), do not call the stewardess for trifles (she is responsible for safety, and does not serve passengers), do not make comments to the parents of crying children (they are also tired of screaming).
