A couple of weeks ago my hubby and I went on a little camping adventure with some friends.
Now, let me set the record straight; I am not a camper.
I have never felt at one with nature.
Since moving to Australia i have been even more opposed to the idea of camping than i ever have before.
You see, i’m terrified of creepy crawlies, and knowing that there are quite a few lurking around in oz that can actually KILL you- well the thought of putting myself through that level of stress for a weekend was just not worth it!
Well….that is until our friends invited us along to a camping trip last year.
We politely declined their invite but said we would visit them for the day instead.
Well, low and behold we had a great time and left wishing that we had stopped being such wusses and had just thrown caution to the wind and gone along for the experience.
So, some months later our friends invited us camping again, this time in Jervis bay ( LOVE LOVE LOVE Jervis bay!) so we decided to go for it.
We purchased a ridiculously expensive tent- which everyone mocked us about calling it the Taj Mahal, but i’m telling you if this girl is gonna camp, she is gonna do it in style, and my roof cupboard space and built in draws came in very handy thankyou very much!
So what can i say? The weekend was awesome!
I became a little bit more used to nature, and i even started to get used to being surrounded by huge possums and kangaroos without screaming everytime i heard something rustling around in the dark.
I managed to cook a fancy meal on a hot plate for seven people and I even learnt to play poker!
And my favourite part of the adventure? Eating melted marshmallows by the fire…yum yum yum.
The location was gorgeous- we camped in the bush and were about 100 metres from pristine white sand and beautiful blue ocean.
I wanted to share with you my favourite photo from our mini break.
This was pretty much right next to where we pitched our tent and my gosh the light there in the evenings was just beautiful!
