Petanque: The Game of Naturists

Petanque: The Game of Naturists

We have joked a lot about petanque over the years, in our blog posts, and in real life. Through naturist history, the balls have become an essential part of being a naturist (pun intended). Every naturist resort we ever visited had at least one petanque court. Often several more. Petanque tournaments are always on the naturist calendar. It’s what naturists like to do, throw a couple of big balls towards a small ball.   We’ve also complained about the naturist…

Review: Le Couderc in Dordogne, France

Review: Le Couderc in Dordogne, France

Many naturist campings are run as family businesses. We’ve heard the story several times before. A couple gets tired of their everyday jobs and starts dreaming about their own tropical paradise. Someplace where they can spend their days in the nude and share the experience with thousands of other naturists. The dream becomes reality. They sell their belongings, make a deal with the bank, buy a property, load their kids in the back of the car, and head off towards…

Smartphones at Naturist Resorts: Take em or Break em?

Smartphones at Naturist Resorts: Take em or Break em?

We often call ourselves the “digital generation”. The Internet found its way into our homes when we were early teenagers. Before we were allowed to drive a car, the squeaking modem sounds got replaced by the fiber that helped Napster infuriate the music industry. After that, we’ve just been experiencing one revolution after the other. We were the early adopters of social media. Well, at least of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, TikTok is still a big mystery to us. We…

Naturist Camping in the French Provence

Naturist Camping in the French Provence

The Provence-Alpes-Côte province in the south of France is not just one of the most visited spots of the country for its amazing nature, food, and drinks. We found out that it’s also an excellent place for naturist vacations. So much that we had to split our overview into two parts. Last week you could read about how we got naked in the French Alps, the eastern part of the region. This week we’re slowly driving down again. We’ll exchange…

Naturist Camping in the French Alps

Naturist Camping in the French Alps

One of the things that we were really looking forward to on our Big Nude Tour de France was spending some time in the Provence region. It’s often said that this part of France contains everything that the country has to offer. Excellent landscapes, delicious food, top-class rosé wines, and great weather. But that’s not what attracted us. The region is also home to quite a large number of naturist campings. And if there’s one thing we love more than…

Why the Whole World Needs to Know that You’re a Naturist

Why the Whole World Needs to Know that You’re a Naturist

One of the biggest struggles within naturism is the taboo that’s still hanging like a dark cloud over our wonderful lifestyle. It’s so incredibly annoying. We have discovered this great thing in which we feel free and liberated, where people still respect each other, where we can fully enjoy nature and where we can feel confident about our bodies. And everyone else thinks that we’re perverts.   It’s a common point of discussion at the communal dinner table of the…

Review: Le Petit Arlane in Provence, France

Review: Le Petit Arlane in Provence, France

It’s often said that the French Provence region contains some of the best of the whole country. The region is a summary of France, so to say. Except for the lousy weather from the north. During the last weeks, we had been traveling through the foot of the Alps mountains, hiking through woods, and bathing in freezing rivers. Moving towards the west of the region, the endless pine forests and rock formations started making space for rolling hills and bright…

FKK in Corsica: A Naturist Paradise on a French Island

FKK in Corsica: A Naturist Paradise on a French Island

Corsica is an island of contradictions. It’s a part of France, but it’s closer to Italy. Signs are often in both languages and also the cuisine is some sort of mix. The high mountain range and the many natural parks make Corsica an excellent destination for nature and adventure lovers. The surrounding coastline with endless white beaches then again makes the island very attractive for beach lovers.   The people in Corsica are known for their grumpiness, but also for…

Naturism with a Disability

Naturism with a Disability

When we were recently talking about Naked Wanderings and all the places we have visited over the years, we were approached by a woman with a physical disability. She could still walk, albeit not very far and on not too rough terrain. Her wheelchair took her to most places but also required at least a bit of a flat underground. The gravel roads of the naturist resort where we were staying at the moment were not particularly ideal for her…

Review: Naturist Camping Bagheera in Corsica, France

Review: Naturist Camping Bagheera in Corsica, France

We had huge plans, a couple of months ago. We were going to explore what the Caribbean islands had to offer to the naturist traveler. We would visit the white Caribbean nude beaches and splendid clothing-optional resorts. Then a virus came along. We were so close. We had already landed in Cuba. But we never made it to our first Caribbean nude beach or resort. Instead, we had to spend most of our time in Cuba figuring out how to…
