Review: CHM Monta in Vendays-Montalivet, France

Review: CHM Monta in Vendays-Montalivet, France

The origin of naturism has been subject to a lot of debate. Many historians who studied the lifestyle will point out a period in early 20th century when the German Dr. Heinrich Scham wrote the book Nacktkultur. Some however say it started already during the industrial revolution when a Belgian guy first used the term “naturism”. And others will tell you that it was way earlier, during the Roman times, when naked sports were more common than clothed ones. Honestly,…

The Naturist Talks: Bart from Belgium

The Naturist Talks: Bart from Belgium

One of the main reasons why we started this project is to show the world that naturists are not some strange dark commune but that actually everyone could be one… Or could enjoy being one if they took the first step.   Our main example of “everyone” is of course ourselves, we write posts about naturism in general but also about our own experiences. But some of you might be thinking “Yes sure, those two are probably just the strange…

Review: Euronat in Grayan-l’Hopital, France

Review: Euronat in Grayan-l’Hopital, France

When people talk about going to the south of France, immediately the Mediterranean coast pops into mind. The mild weather, the long beaches where bikini tops have always been a rarity, places like Nice, Cannes and Saint Tropez where half of Hollywood has a boat in the harbour and of course the world famous naturist destination Cap d’Agde. We often forget that the south of France has another coast, the Atlantic one, which is (at least to us) even more…

24 Hours naked in Paris

24 Hours naked in Paris

We are often surprised about how many textiles still think that naturism is only practiced in our own “naturist camps”, or worse… (oh, the horror) in our “colonies”. Come on! This is the 21st century! The times when we spent all our pastime being naked around a lake somewhere far far away in the woods is long gone. Now that naturism starts to attract more and more young people again, the options have to be larger. Although we like an…

That time at the INF World Congress

That time at the INF World Congress

More than often we have been aiming our arrows towards the INF-FNI (International Naturist Federation), we complained about their inability to modernise and worried about whether one day it will all fall apart. Most of all we wondered what they are actually doing for the naturists or naturism in general. Over the years we’ve sent them several e-mails to which we never received a response and so we just criticised them a little more. As a consequence, we started to…

O’Naturel: The first naked restaurant in Paris

O’Naturel: The first naked restaurant in Paris

During our last days in Canada, the clear blue sky started to look more like a pattern of fifty shades of grey (pun intended). When eventually there were more days when we preferred a good jacket over our naked skin, we knew it was time to go. The Canadians tried to convince us that an Indian summer, when temperatures would rise again, would definitely be coming, our minds were already made up. We had something else to look forward to,…

Dear Facebook, we thought we had friends

Dear Facebook, we thought we had friends

Our hate-love relationship with Facebook is certainly not a secret… Well… love… Years ago we thought that Facebook was one of the best inventions after the wheel and wine but since we’ve started Naked Wanderings it has become more like a burden. More than once we asked ourselves if we shouldn’t just let it go. F*ck Facebook! But we can’t deny the fact that it’s still one of the world’s largest social media and although there are alternatives like MeWe,…

Getting Naked in Ontario and Quebec

Getting Naked in Ontario and Quebec

We had three things we wanted to find during our time in Canada: Bears, moose and places to get naked. At least we found one of them. Many Canadians we had met during our travels told stories that started with “that one time I rode my bicycle into a black bear…” or “after I chased a moose away from our garbage this morning…”. They gave us the impression that Canada was flooded with large impressive wildlife. We wanted to experience…

Review: La Pommerie near Montreal, Canada

Review: La Pommerie near Montreal, Canada

Sometimes we use the term “naturist resort” or “naturist campground” or “naturist place” or “naturist spot”. We prefer not to use “naturist colony” because we feel that it has a bit of a negative undertone. And sometimes we even use “naturist domain”, a pretty nice term if you ask us but after this blog post we will unfortunately have to stop using that one as well. We believe that we have just reached the maximum when it comes to domains….
