I was in the shops looking for a beach shelter and saw a tent on sale. Impulse buy!
- its inexpensive (other then set-up which is as expensive as you choose!)
- you get to travel and meet people (some amazing people!)
- you get to see wonderful things - man made and natural
- educational - you learn geography, social history, etc
- life skills - learning how to pitch a tent, start a fire, fishing, independence etc
- healthy - lots of exercise in the outdoors, food is better
- better for the environment - no aircon! lol
