Wanderlust: Glamping in Europe

Wanderlust: Glamping in Europe
I should be sleeping as I type this in but I got caught up in a heavy daze of wanderlust. I have always wanted to travel and see the world unfold before my very eyes. There's a certain charm and magic to it that's simply hard to define. I believe there's no adjective good enough to describe the enchantment that it brings. It's like waking up to a beautiful sunrise with the smell of brewed coffee and pancakes in the air combined with this feeling of home fused with a sense of adventure for something exciting and unknown. You see, I want to make memories all over the world. It's a vow that I have taken upon myself.

But my sense of wanderlust can be quite different compared to others. I believe that I'm an old soul lost in a digital jungle. Truth be told, the charm of old cities and architecture enchant me. I consider nature and the stars as the best escape I'd ever get. I would still love to see all those skyscrapers and modern installations all over the globe especially if they involve theme parks and roller coasters but if I were made to choose, I'd always go on a trip that gets me as close to nature as possible. So it would totally make sense if glamping in Europe forms part of my travel bucket list and I happen to come across two of the best places that'll make that dream come to life.

#1: The Mercedes Surf Bus 
(De Woude, North Holland, Netherlands)
Wanderlust: Glamping in Europe | Mercedes Surf Bus (De Woude, Netherlands)
Neatly tucked away in the rich countryside, this vibrant 30 year old 7 meter long classic Mercedes Surf Van would be the perfect place to spend some much needed relaxation away from the hustles and bustles of the busy metropolis. Imagine campfires, s'mores, star gazing and endless giggles with your besties with the comfort of cozy beds and colorful pillows! Although one cannot drive the van away from the campsite, I find that to be less of a bummer given its proximity to lake Alkmaardermeer. You can swim in the lake or even rent out canoes! A five minute drive away from the camp would even bring you to the middle of old Holland where one can find vast tulip fields and windmills. The famous cheese market of Alkmaar is only twenty minutes away while a thirty minute drive brings you to Amsterdam or the North Sea!

#2: Rosie Gypsy Wagon
(Saint Keverne, Cornwall, United Kingdom)
Wanderlust: Glamping in Europe | Rosie Gyspsy Wagon (Cornwall, United Kingdom)
This Rosie Gyspsy Wagon in the UK screams fairy tale to me. You can wake up and say hello to cows in the morning and see birds glide across the sky as you listen to the waves lapping by the nearby Porthallow beach. At night, you can sit by an open fire and stare at the stars with hotdogs on one hand and marshmallows on the other. I wouldn't mind Prince Charming whisking me away to this magical place. I dare say this is the perfect romantic getaway. Alas, I think Prince Charming got stuck on a tree or something. Now I have to go and save the poor guy's ass. I ain't the damsel in distress in this story. Nope!

Anne said...

People have been telling me great things about Cornwall! The photos are from the listings themselves at Airbnb not mine. I've specified that at the bottom of the post. Sorry about any confusion but yes they are great! :)

Anne said...

Thank you so much Nikita! Your comments in here are always so lovely. ♥ Nature is indeed a sight to behold. If I could only go camping/glamping on a weekly basis then I would. :)

Flei Der Maus said...

I just learned about airnbn recently from a Spanish friend and I just heard about glamping from you so thank you for this! I think both airbnb and glamping are wonderful! I wouldn't mind living in the surf bus and the gypsy wagon is amazing, it reminds me of the Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus!

Marina Ingvarsson said...

I Love that idea, just saw the documental movie on Netflix about small houses!

Rea Alducente said...

Why not???!!! Is there something like those in the outskirts of Cebu? LOL. I'm all for adventures. Those are so pretty and colorful. I'd love to wake up hearing the sound of the birds and away from the city!

Janine Ella said...

Ah nice!!! I actually signed up on Airbnb months ago and I haven't checked it recently pa. Maybe I will when I pursue my dream to travel soon. HAHA

Anne said...

Thanks Olivia!

Anne said...

I'm actually on the lookout for one but I haven't found one located in Cebu just yet.

Anne said...

I often end up scrolling through various listings and spend more time on the site than I initially intended. Haha! Make a bucket list Jan! :)

Sara Wallflower said...

Great post! I love to travel too and my travel bucket list is getting longer and longer. :)

Mimi Gonzales said...

That Rosie Gypsy Wagon is a must when I go to Europe!!! So perfect. If ever I get rich I'd have to build a small wagon such as that, and maybe my kids and I can go camping every week. That sounds like a neat idea, haha!

Anne said...

Thanks Kath! I do hope I can tick these two off of my bucket list someday.

Anne said...

Tara! Travel na tayo Jhanzey!

Anne said...

I can just imagine you, your husband and your kids in the Rosie wagon Jhanis! That would be cute.
