Okay, a total convert might be stretching the truth, I am by no means someone who grabs their tent at the first opportunity but I have had several great camping trips and am certainly not ruling a tent out for future trips, either. When one of my favourite bloggers, Allison from Life in a Pink Fibro, confessed her anxieties about a pending camping trip I was immediately transplanted back to Croatia, the scene of my favourite ever camping holiday.
This was a very low budget trip, at a time when I was time rich but money poor. That meant the camping equipment - mainly a small tent and an air mattress - were also low budget, but they seemed to do the trick nicely. I have some extremely fond memories of lying on the surprisingly very comfortable air mattress and looking out the tent door to a sunny Croatian sky; equally fond are the thoughts of lying there listening to some summer rain plop onto the tent, wondering if I'd end up saturated or not and being pleased the next morning to find that the inside of the tent (and therefore, me) was still all dry.

Are you a camper or a don't-let-me-see-the-inside-of-a-tent kind of traveller?
