This is a means of staying abroad which is becoming more and more popular, and there are many reasons why that might be the case.

Safety First

As with any kind of holiday, you will benefit from thinking about safety before you go and while you are there. There are many ways in which safety can become an ongoing issue, and the last thing you want is for anything to happen to you or a family member. Be sure to pack a first aid kit – this can include basics such as plasters, bandages and so on as well as useful items such as multi-purpose flashlights, such as the ones found at www.tbotech.com/flashlight-taser.htm. If you are sure that you are fully packed with safety in mind, you should then remember to keep safety at the forefront of your concerns as you camp. As long as you bear it in mind, you should be able to remain safe and have a much better time as a result.

Know Your Pitch

Wherever you end up pitching, it is really important that you know it as well as possible. The best way to ensure this is to plan your trip in advance, going so far as to choose your campsites. You will want to know what kind of amenities the campsite has, as well as what is permitted and what is not. It also helps to have a good sense of the kind of clientele who frequent it, so that you can be sure to find somewhere you will fit in. But it’s about more than just researching the campsite; it also helps hugely if you spend time finding a pitch you can be happy with. Finding a good spot on site ensures you will have a much better time of it. See https://www.pitchup.com/guide-camping-abroad/ for more on this topic.

Talk To Neighbors

Wherever you end up, unless you are wild camping in the middle of nowhere, you will have some camping neighbors. Just as with most other situations, it is a good idea to talk to these people, even if only the basic politeness of saying hello. This is partly a safety issue, but it also helps to feel at home on the campsite. It is likely that they will appreciate it as well, and on the whole you will be contributing to a much nicer little community, so it is well worth it. Talk to them and find out more about the local area in the process – this in particular will help you to make the most of your time abroad.
