Glam – ping: verb 1. A form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.

According to the Oxford dictionary, “glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries”

On that note, we’re headed out into the wilderness of the Texas countryside this weekend.  A few other couples are joining us on our jaunt down the Guadalupe River.   We’ve been joking that we are going to attempt to go “Glamping.”  Aka glamourous camping.  Check out these pretty shots of some people who take glamping to an extreme level.   But for us, I’m thinking the most glamourous aspect of our trip will just mean drinking out of plastic wine glasses instead of solo cups.  Cheers!


This will actually be our first time to get away and explore another part of the state other than Houston. Back in Knoxville, we would head up into the Smokey Mountains for the weekend all the time.  It was one of my favorite parts about living in East, TN. Being so close to so much nature.   I’m just itching to build a campfire, roast marshmallows, and sleep under the stars.  It has been far too long.   
I’ll let you know next week how our attempt at “glamping” turns out!

  • Y'all are so fun! The guadalupe is so fun. Make sure you stop in to Gruene Hall – and if y'all eat in Gruene, Green River Grill is ten thousand times better than The Gristmill.

    Sidenote – it was so nice to meet you both last weekend! We absolutely need to get together for dinner/drinks soon since we live on the same street 🙂

  • I love regular camping but this looks sooo tempting! would love to glamp one day 🙂
