50 Inspiring Camping Quotes - Best Quotes About Camping

Camping is the best way to enjoy the Great Outdoors

There's many reasons I love camping when I travel.

Some are to do with the idealised romance of camping, such as sleeping out under the stars, and being alone in nature.

Others are to do with camping being a cheap way to travel.

It's helped me travel the world on a bicycle for $10 a day or less, explore remote parts of far off countries, and enjoy indescribable views in the mountains.

In fact, I calculated I have spent nearly 4 years of my life living in tents during my different trips around the world.

And I'd never swap those experiences for so-called 5 star luxury.

Who would want to, when you can stay in open air million star accommodation for free when wild camping?
