Tent life : an inspirational guide to camping and outdoor living

Summary: An inspirational guide to camping for outdoor lovers and eco-conscious travellers. 'Tent Life' profiles 40 people who have made camping a part of their life and provides advice so that you can do the same. Tent Life introduces you to 34 inspirational people from across the globe who've made camping part of their lifestyle, and provides you with the tools to do the same. What's the appeal of pitching a tent and sleeping under the stars? Tried it yourself and felt inadequate and underprepared? The campers in this book can show you how to pitch up in style. From intrepid woodsmen with enviable survival skills, to low-key surfers chasing the perfect wave; solo travellers in single-person hammocks, to family groups in extravagant bell tent setups - for these aficionados, camping is pure pleasure, a way to connect with nature, an antidote to modern life. And, unlike most of us, they know how to do it properly. Supported by Instagram-worthy photography, interviews with each contributor bring out their unique and inspirational approach to camping, their most memorable experiences (and challenges) and the camping tips they couldn't live without. Listed with each entry, the book will also provide advice on how to achieve the `camping style' yourself and suggests worldwide destinations that provide a similar setting, giving you the inspiration and tools to plan your next trip. With enviable camping setups, stories that will give you wanderlust, stunning locations and top advice from the experts - Tent Life is the perfect companion and guide for any wannabe camper.
