How to Book Your Nude Vacation Without a Travel Agency

How to Book Your Nude Vacation Without a Travel Agency

Exactly two weeks ago, news from the travel industry hit the world like a nuclear bomb. Thomas Cook, the world’s oldest travel firm collapsed. Resulting in chaos at airports and in hotels all over the world. Just like that, Thomas Cook stopped existing. But was it really just like that?   Honestly, we kinda saw this one coming. Not Thomas Cook in particular but travel agencies in general. The last time we booked a trip via an agency was back…

Review: Monte Naturista O Barão in south Alentejo, Portugal

Review: Monte Naturista O Barão in south Alentejo, Portugal

When you travel a lot, your mind tends to play a trick mixing up different locations into one. It’s like those weird dreams in which you realise that something is just not right. If only you could put your finger on it. Like that time when we woke up from an afternoon nap in one of our lounge chairs at Monte Naturista O Barão. Still a bit hazy from sleeping under the afternoon sun, we wondered how we ended up…

Review: Cabanadelsol in Algarve, Portugal

Review: Cabanadelsol in Algarve, Portugal

When choosing Portugal as the destination for a nude vacation (or any vacation actually), it’s important to know which part of the country you want to visit. The green north, the warm centre and the long coastline are all very different. Today we’ll take you to the very south of the country. The Algarve region is a preferred destination for both local and foreign tourists. It’s warm weather and impressive landscapes can be enjoyed year-round, even by the naked visitors….

10 Biggest Fears of a Beginning Nudist and how to Overcome Them

10 Biggest Fears of a Beginning Nudist and how to Overcome Them

Nudism is probably one of the easiest lifestyles to get started with. You don’t need any particular skills, there’s no minimum or maximum age and you don’t need to be in a particular shape. Neither does nudism come with a specific diet and it only takes as much of your time as you’re willing to spend. Becoming a nudist literally only takes seconds. The time needed to take off your clothes. SAY WHAT? Take off my clothes? Exactly. This simple…

Review: Limanature in the North of Portugal

Review: Limanature in the North of Portugal

Meanwhile we’ve used the words “this is not an average naturist camping” probably so many times that we start wondering whether there’s even such a thing. What is average anyway? Maybe that’s another reason why we’re so much attracted to naturist places? Because they’re not average at all. It’s too early in the day for philosophical questions like that. We just want to say that Limanature in the very north of Portugal is not an average naturist camping. That much…

Nude Vacations near Alicante in Spain

Nude Vacations near Alicante in Spain

Our visit to Spain this year was quite short. There was only one region which really caught our eye and which we definitely wanted to include in our Big Nude Europe Trip. The Alicante region in southern Spain doesn’t only have year round pretty great weather and lots of interesting places to visit. It also has an abundance of nude beaches from where you can skinny dip in the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. And most importantly, this year…

Review: Finca Pura Clothing Optional Guest Rooms near Alicante, Spain

Review: Finca Pura Clothing Optional Guest Rooms near Alicante, Spain

If there’s one concept of naturism which we didn’t really find in Europe (until today) it’s clothing optional. It’s a difficult subject altogether, especially seen from a global point of view. In the Americas, “clothing optional” is used to point out nudist resorts and clothing is most often not really an option. In Europe on the other hand, clothing appeared to be an option at most naturist places. At least in some parts or at certain times. In Alicante we…

How Voyeurism and Exhibitionism fit into Nudism. Or Not.

How Voyeurism and Exhibitionism fit into Nudism. Or Not.

The other day we came upon a year old blog post by Dan Carlson, a.k.a. the Meandering Naturist, about naturism and exhibitionism. Since Dan’s blog posts are often thought provoking, we can rarely resist to share our own thoughts on the subject in a comment. One which often competes in size with the actual post. It wasn’t any different with this one about naturism and exhibitionism, but then we figured that we could as well publish our ideas here. On…

Review: Lavinia Naturist Resort near Alicante, Spain

Naturism in Spain has known its ups and downs over the years. Quite honestly, we had our doubts when we were planning this Big Nude European Trip. Which region should we pick? Which type of accommodation should we aim for? Should we go to Spain at all? The news that a new naturist place, Lavinia Naturist Resort, would soon be opening in the Alicante area drew us over the line. Their first photos looked very promising and we just had…

Our Nude French Road Trip Part 2: The South-East

Our Nude French Road Trip Part 2: The South-East

Oh France, you naturist paradise! It almost feels like we should start a separate blog, just about naturism in France alone. Even then we would probably not be able to explore everything the country has to offer for the naked traveler. During this summer we decided to travel through the southern regions of France and search for the best naturist vacation destinations. Because we found so many places to talk about, we decided to split our experiences in two blog…
