Why go Camping?

“Why” is never enough a question. There never will be a satisfying answer. Some things are just worth trying out, even for the heck of it. As kids, “roughing it out” is pretty much the motto. While growing up, it is replaced by dreams of vacationing in big hotels with various facilities. But vacationing in a big hotel with big budgets does not necessarily mean a better vacation. What might sprout inside you could be a passion or hobby for a lifetime.

Camping is a simply a wonderful way to unwind, spend quality time with your family & friends. You can do it without the need of any travel expert or any external agency whatsoever. Just Google a location till where you’re comfortable traveling, woods, beaches or maybe even massive meadows around your city.
