I want to go Glamping in our Backyard – WHO'S IN?

OH MY – SUMMER HAS ARRIVED! So I wanna go and sleep outside, but in a "glamours" way – glamping, right? This word has been around for a quite a while now... and when you go to Pinterest and search for glamping, some really, really gorgeous images will pop up! I am into it, so here is my "how-to-glamping" list. Who's coming? Drinks are included! :)

my weekend according to my iPhone pictures

Hamburg! What an awesome city! We were blessed with amazing weather, good food, too many drinks, partying till morning, laughing a lot and of course some shopping! It was such a nice girls weekend – we were just strolling around, no sightseeing or culture/art. Just walking around, floating with the city...

The magical forest of Fontainebleau

After a 7-hour-drive we arrived in Fontainebleau/France. What an amazing place! It is certainly not the first time that boulderer/climbers read about this place, since this is the oldest and most famous bouldering place in Europe. But it was the first time for me – and I am amazed! Such a beautiful place, even if you are not a boulderer. A huuuuge forest with a sandy soil, nice people from around the world and awesome boulders! Just enjoy the images below – and if you have any questions about bouldering or camping in Fontainebleau, just ask!
