The European Spa Etiquette

The European Spa Etiquette

Many naturists take their first steps into social nudity at the nude beach. But in parts of western Europe, another phenomenon is quickly becoming the new number one place where people get naked with strangers for the first time. Or even with friends. Especially in countries like Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, the wellness or spa center has proven to be a great stepping stone for naturism.   Of course, these countries are not particularly … Read more

Goodbye to the Lost Year, welcome 2021!

Goodbye to the Lost Year, Welcome 2021!

Be careful what you wish for, they said. Maybe we should have listened. If you asked us around this time last year what we hoped for 2020, we probably said something like “unique experiences and meeting interesting people”. And that was exactly what we got. Unfortunately, a global pandemic was not the kind of experience we had in mind. Neither were virologists the kind of people we were looking forward to meeting. At least not … Read more

10 Things We Wish We Knew Before Visiting a Nude Beach for the First Time

10 Things We Wish We Knew Before Visiting a Nude Beach for the First Time

These days, you can find a book for pretty much everything you’d like to try. We all know (and often own) the For Dummies series, for example. With more than 2 500 titles, they have a guide for almost everything. Wanna learn about the World of Narnia, beach Babies Jigsaw Puzzles, or Zombies? There’s a For Dummies Guide for that. Some even have a double “for”, like eBay For Canadians For Dummies. But there’s no … Read more

A Symbol for Social Nudity

A Symbol for Social Nudity

When we traveled through Greece, a couple of years ago, we met up with Ralf who owned a small naturist guesthouse near the coast. Ralf had moved there some years before from Germany with his family. For many Germans, nudity is about as natural as having a beer with a bratwurst. But the Greek culture is more conservative and Ralf adjusted to his surroundings. The beach down the road had a small secluded part behind … Read more

Racó Dell Conill: Getting Naked as a Rabbit

Racó Del Conill: Getting Naked as a Rabbit

December is an interesting month to visit Spain’s Alicante region. Mass tourism has largely left and the cities and towns return to the relaxed atmosphere that’s so typical for the Mediterranean coastal regions. The weather at this time of the year loses its “perfect for sunbathing and ideal for skinny dipping” status and becomes a bit unpredictable. During the ten December days that we’ve already spent in the region, we’ve seen warm and sunny, windy … Read more

9 Great Naturist Content Creators that Deserve Your Support

9 Great Naturist Content Creators that Deserve Your Support

When we started with Naked Wanderings, we felt that there was a gap in the information about naturism that could be found online. There were static websites, often in need of an urgent makeover. You could subscribe to newsletters from clubs or federations. And there were not much more than a handful of naturist bloggers, whom we happily joined.   After more than 4 years of blogging on Naked Wanderings, we’ve seen many other naturist … Read more

23 Idyllic European Private Winter Getaways on Airbnb with a Hot Tub

23 Idyllic European Private Winter Getaways on Airbnb with a Hot Tub

The winter months are typically not the best time of the year for naked vacations. Many naturist resorts in the northern hemisphere have closed their doors and the options are limited to indoor naturism. Like the spa and sauna centers in western Europe, for example.   Although we definitely agree that there’s nothing better than skinny dipping at a naturist paradise with the summer sun warming up our bare bodies, there is something about being … Read more

The Global Naturist Forum and the Future of Social Nudity

The Global Naturist Forum and the Future of Social Nudity

During the last several months, British Naturism has emerged as the pioneer of virtual naturist events. Online talks and workshops are organized on an almost daily basis during the covid pandemic and the cherry on the cake was their first Global Naturist Forum. Four sessions spread over two days, featuring naturist leaders and influencers from around the world.   With hundreds of participants during every session, it was definitely a success. It started off with … Read more

What Will Naturist Vacations Look Like in 2021

What Will Naturist Vacations Look Like in 2021?

For avid travelers like ourselves, 2020 was the weirdest year ever. We had gotten so used to being able to hop on a bus, train, plane, uber, or rickshaw and end up at another spot on this world. Then suddenly, it stopped. Conversations about traveling were flooded with new terms like “staycation”, “red zone”, and “quarantine”.   At first, we never thought that the virus would make it outside of Asia. Then we figured that … Read more

What You Need to Know Before Having a Nude Massage

What You Need to Know Before Having a Nude Massage

We love massages. They are so relaxing, and if they’re done well, we feel like a different person once we walk out of the massage room. Our muscles feel as if they’re brand new and that sweet smell lasts until your next shower. If we were rich, we would probably have massages every day. In fact, that’s pretty much what happened in Thailand. We didn’t get rich there, unfortunately, but the massages are amazingly low … Read more
