Camping is exactly that- enjoying tiny moments that make our life more beautiful. Picking up the rocks, setting up the fire, taking pictures in nature etc., and all that without the pressure of thoughts that we should be productive.
Camping leads us to slow down, be more careful and live every moment. Camping encourages us to be grateful. During camping we are meeting with challenges that are different from the ones we see in everyday life and at home. Because of that, after we get back from camping, we appreciate our home and all the possibilities it gives us.
Although it's modest, our home becomes an asylum that gives us all the things we needed but didn't have when we were camping (hot running water, waiting to shower in the same bathroom, safety from heavy rains and wind etc.

Exploring something new, interesting, hidden, secret and beautiful is the right path to joy and all the charms of camping.
Camping gives you the opportunity to explore and visit new places. Exploring and finding joy in the natural world is something that can't get old. The key is to find that lost feeling of joy you had as a child. Greeting with friends and family. The whole term of balance between work and private life is sometimes hardly possible.

Enjoying the conversation with other tourists. Campers are a friendly community. It is a real joy to participate in random chatting and learning about other languages and cultures. They offer help to each other and give advice on how to do something in certain situations, especially the ones with a lot of experience.
Time for „signing out”. Camping sometimes means leaving the phone and all the connections with the outside world aside. Although the Internet is nowadays available almost everywhere, and most of the camps have it, we suggest you to let go of that phone and enjoy nature. Holiday without the phone is the type of holiday where you can recharge your batteries and hang out with your loved ones, right?
Look up in the sky. Camping is an exception for you to run away from light pollution and enjoy the starry night sky. You can watch clouds as they float and birds flying beneath them.
