Talking About Camping // Sponsor Spotlight + GIVEAWAY


While living in Alaska, we still took every single chance we got to go on a camping adventure during the summer months. Moving back home to Ontario, we decided that although we may not be able to hop in the car and be in the wilderness in less than 30 minutes, we needed to carry on the tradition of at least one camping trip per summer. Whether it is the same place each year, or we switch it up to explore to each corner of the province, there can be no excuses as to why we don't go camping at least once a year. 

Ontario has an incredible parks system, with over 100 Provincial Parks and many many Conservation Areas that offer car camping, canoe camping and the more extreme back country camping. This summer, we've rounded up my sister in law, brother and brother's girlfriend, and we're heading back to Algonquin Provincial Parkthe oldest, largest and easily the most popular provincial park in Ontario. It is the largest remaining stretch of continuous forest in Ontario, and the perfect way to disconnect for a long weekend.

In Some Places
Have you been camping? What is your favourite place to camp? What is your favourite camping memory? Where would you like to go camping?
I love camping! Since Girl Scouts campouts, singalongs, and hikes when I was young, camping has been a favorite pastime. I enjoy camping most in the Colorado mountains; I've been camping at Rocky Mountain National Park more times than I can count!  In 2009, I went camping in Yellowstone with my family. It was June but it was freezing - we didn't change almost the entire week because it was too cold in the bathrooms to justify taking clothes off. Even so, we spent the evenings huddled over the camp stove and reading by flashlight, and the days hiking around the park and warming ourselves near the thermal pools. I think the best part of camping is the simplicity of the experience and sharing that with those you are with. I am so excited to go camping in Kyrgyzstan when I move in August. I've been living in Seoul where we see maybe two stars at night because of the light pollution. The mountains of Kyrgyzstan are so removed from large sources of light pollution; I can't wait to gaze at the night sky.

I used to go camping every summer when I lived in Canada but not as frequently now that I'm older. My favorite camping story is having unnecessarily large bonfires and making up campfire stories as a group. I would love love love to go camping at Big Sur!

Honestly, I've never been camping before! I would love to if I had traveling companions who were up for it! If I could go camping somewhere right now -- somewhere in a national forest in the western US or in either Glacier National Park or Yosemite National Park.

I used to go camping all the time with my family. My favorite camping trip was two weeks camping in Colorado and Utah. I would love to camp somewhere near a beach next!
