The Things We Often Miss While Glamping

The summer in Europe has come to an end, many naturist campsites have either already closed their doors or will do so in the following weeks. Half a year ago, we didn’t dare to imagine how busy this summer would end up being. Then suddenly, the world started opening up again and we quickly started making plans to hit the road. Before we realized it, we had a busy itinerary ahead of us, one that … Read more

5 Tips for Planning Last Minute Naturist Vacations

5 Tips for Planning Last Minute Naturist Vacations

A couple of months ago, we were among the first tourists that were allowed to enter Italy again after the 3rd strong wave of the COVID pandemic. That was in early June, quite a popular travel period as the weather in Italy is not that hot yet as in the high season, but definitely already naturist-friendly. From our talks with the resort owners during the weeks that followed, we learned about the many cancelations.   … Read more

Why does the naturist get dressed for dinner?

Why Does the Naturist Get Dressed for Dinner?

During one of our first naturist camping experiences, we were invited for a communal dinner. This is pretty common at naturist resorts. Sometimes it’s a kind of potluck where everyone brings something, other times one of the guests or the staff cooks the meal and you just pay for it. In any case, it’s always a great opportunity to meet the other visitors of the resort and often a very social experience.   We didn’t … Read more

8 Fun Things That You can do at a Naturist Resort

8 Fun Things That You can do at a Naturist Resort

When we talk with people about being a naturist, we notice that a common misunderstanding is that naturism is pretty boring. We understand how they come to this conclusion. On the rare occasions that naturism is featured in the news or a mainstream documentary, you’re likely to see some naked people doing not much more than lazing around the pool, half asleep on the beach, or sitting together for a chat.   It’s also how … Read more

9 Tips for Planning a Naturist Vacation in 2021

9 Tips for Planning a Naturist Vacation in 2021

There was a time when we thought that COVID was so 2020. That with the beginning of the new year, the virus would magically disappear. Or at least that we would gain control over it, lock it in a little box and hide it in a dark dungeon. That the next time we’d hear about the virus would be in a couple of years in an Oliver Stone movie. But that didn’t happen.   For … Read more

The Different types of naturist accommodations

The Different Types of Naturist Accommodations

For a long time, naturism has invariably been connected to camping. It made perfect sense within the philosophy. Naturists wanted to spend most of their time outside, absorbing the sunshine and being as close as possible to nature. Personally, we love camping. For exactly those reasons. But along the way, we’ve learned that definitely not every naturist is interested in spending the weekends or holidays on a campsite. Or, let’s rephrase that, on “the idea … Read more

How to get a Naturist Volunteer Job

How to get a Naturist Volunteer Job

Naturist vacations come with a cost. Even if you just want to go to a naturist campsite and bring your own tent, you’ll easily pay several tens of euros or dollars per night for a pitch. And then you haven’t had lunch and a beer yet. Especially if you want to travel for several weeks or months, the bite in your budget can be significant.   Something we often forget is that there is another … Read more

10 Health Benefits of Naturist Camping

10 Health Benefits of Naturist Camping

We love camping in the buff. Camping on itself is already a great pastime, and we feel that doing so without clothes really adds a lot to the experience. Think about why you like camping. Because you like spending time in nature? Well, there’s probably no better way to connect with nature when there are no textile boundaries between yourself and the outdoors. Do you like spending your days in the campground’s swimming pool? Nothing … Read more

46 Things We've Learned at Naturist Campings in France

46 Things We’ve Learned at Naturist Campsites in France

As you may remember, we have spent the last three months on our Epic nude road trip through France. We had been to naturist campsites in France before, but then we mostly stayed in rental accommodations. This year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to get back to basic and bring our own tent and our own gear.   It definitely was epic. We discovered so many great naturist campgrounds in France, we … Read more

The Game of Naturists: Petanque

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 … Read more
