Are you ready to get spoiled with the best camping quotes? Even when it’s raining, or freaking cold outside I always prefer camping in my tent instead of a fancy hotel. Ok.. let’s be clear, I also like a hotel so now and then but a night in my cozy tent really gives me that happy feeling. Camping in cold conditions gives it a special vibe when you are wrapped up in your sleeping bag like a mummy. Even when it’s minus 15 degrees and snowing outside I will always go outside to check the stars in the sky. While writing this I have so many flashbacks of the Milky way’s and incredible skies while winter camping. 

I know most of you would prefer camping during summer conditions. Imagine this, it’s a beautiful morning when you wake up and unzip your tent. The sun is shining and with just a few steps you can jump into a crystal clear lake surrounded with mountains and trees and no other people. After a nice swim you will make your breakfast on a campfire or your camping stove. Isn’t it a nice start of the day? 

I like to wild camp in the middle of rough nature far away from everything. Just be one with nature and the weather elements. I will be honest it can be hard sometimes when the weather will be a challenge, but I both me and my tent always survive. Let me inspire you with the best camping quotes and I know for sure after reading those you will pack your bags to go camping. P.s. you can also camp in your living room or garden to have a great experience.
