“Whatever form it takes, camping is earthy, soul enriching and character building, and there can be few such satisfying moments as having your tent pitched and the smoke rising from your campfire as the golden sun sets on the horizon….”
― Pippa Middleton, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends
