Living in a nudist community

Living in a Nudist Community

When we traveled to Spain, several months ago, our initial plan was to arrive in Alicante and start traveling south from there. One of the places we definitely wanted to visit was Vera Playa, a so-called “naturist village” in the north of the Andalucia region. That was the place where we had hoped to write this blog post because people are actually living there and spend their lives (when the weather permits it) pretty much … Read more

Naked Digital Nomads

Naked Digital Nomads

For a long time, digital nomadism was just this new hippie thing for the younger generations that didn’t want to settle down just yet. People who wanted to travel the world, but didn’t really have the savings to do so for a very long period of time. The internet created opportunities, and especially in the ICT sector, it became quite easy to find a job that didn’t require you to come to an office every … 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

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

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

European Countries with a Nude Spa Culture

European Countries with a Nude Spa Culture

For many European naturists, including ourselves, a visit to the spa was the first experience of social nudity. This isn’t a coincidence. The step to try a nude spa is just a lot smaller than a visit to a naturist club or resort. While the latter encourage nudity, bathrobes and sarongs are embraced at the spa. Nudity is only obligatory inside the pool, the jacuzzi, and the other facilities. If you prefer some covering when … Read more

Musings about The Nudist Etiquette in 2020

Musings about The Nudist Etiquette in 2020

Some time ago, we received a message from one of our readers asking how she should position her legs in a nudist venue or at a nude beach. More specifically, what the maximum acceptable distance between her two knees would be. Within the same week, we stumbled upon an entry on a naturist forum of a woman saying something like “according to the nudist etiquette, I never bend over and always go through the knees“. … 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
