Hello my amazing readers,
One of the best ways to de-stress and rejuvenate is to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and venture out to the middle of nowhere and into the woods. I have been beyond stressed-out lately, to an unhealthy extent, so I can’t emphasize how badly I needed to get away (even just for a minute) and reconnect with nature.
Luckily living in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, we are spoiled with a ton of spots to get away to when in need. So I called up a few friends on Thursday, they did a little bit of research and by Friday we were in this magical spot, in the woods & by the lake:
This was our adorable cabin which thankfully was available so last minute. And let’s be honest as much as I love to be connected to nature, I need a cabin in order to do so (Serious props to those who camp in tents).
I had to share this picture of the stove in our cabin as a testament to how antique looking everything was and I just adored it!
Shortly after arrival, I managed to find an axe and started chopping some wood, which proved to be an extremely effective way to blow off some steam ( I assure you, I was not prepping for my next kill, lol).
And after breaking a sweat, we finally sat down to enjoy a nice cool beverage.
We also brought our bikes and went on a few bike trails, although there were a lot of bear and wolves around and we quickly took note of that when we saw people walking around with rifles (I assume just in case…). We did have bear spray, which somehow next to a rifle didn’t seem as effective, thankfully we didn’t have any bear encounters.
The next day we hit up the lake for some boating and floating activities!
I love real fire and I was so happy to be sitting next to one for a couple of nights.
I did, however, managed to get sunburnt because apparently, I have such sensitive skin that even SPF 60 can’t do much for me.
I will say, without a doubt, glamping in the woods is really rejuvenating and I feel so refreshed after the whole experience.
I plan on going back very soon…
