      I’m sure there is opportunities in India for women to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. I know of women who have visited India and enjoyed the natural beauty there. There are also some Indian Travel Bloggers and one lady in particular (Raksha Prasad) that is a fantastic inspiration for women in India. Check out her blog https://solopassport.com/ and see if you agree. All the best.

      How great is it that many of us don’t have far to go to a number of great outdoor options? While it is exciting to go to distant places we haven’t been to before, going to somewhere locally means we can get away more often and spend less time travelling. Sign me up to that for sure! Thank you so much for your lovely comment and here’s to many more experiences in nature.

    Congratulations. You must be so overjoyed at this recognition. I’m new to your blog but will certainly be following along. I have to admit, at 40 years of age, last summer was the very first time I ever camped. We went w/ my son’s scouts and I rather enjoyed it.

    Congratulations! I’m sure the recognition is (to bring in a touch of melodrama) a result of hardwork, sweat and tears. As someone who is new to blogging, examples such as yours light up the way ahead for me.

      There is no doubting the hard work that is involved but that is balanced by the fact that we are lucky enough to love what we do. I think that is the secret behind any successful endeavor of people working together. When you have enough passion for what you do, hopefully the number of dramas is greatly minimized across the team of people you work with. Welcome to the blogging world and I’m sure we all wish you the very best for your blog and thank you for your comment Denny.

      I am not sure where Camping for Women would be without contributors like you Mary. I am in complete awe of you and others who just chase their dreams and live life to the max on their own terms. It is a blessing to be able to work with you and to learn from your vast knowledge and experiences you have gained around the world. I enjoy working with you and your fellow contributors so much while learning a lot along the way.

    Congratulations on your achievement! That is so exciting!! We all need to spend a bit more time outdoors, whether if its hiking (which I love!), but it allows for personal interaction with family members and makes sure we all stay off our phone LOL!

      That’s for sure Susana! It’s so great when you can truly ‘switch off’ and be at one with nature and to be able to share that with your loved ones is even more special. Thank you so much for your comment.

    We went camping last year for the first time as a family and LOVED it! It was amazing to be outdoors and the kids had the best time! Love what you are all doing to support women who love being outdoors.

      That is so lovely to hear Laura, thank you. So many families enjoy taking short breaks and even large parts of their holidays enjoying the outdoors and have so many wonderful memories because of it. From what you have said, I am sure you have more great trips planned.

    Congratulations! I like to be outside to connect with nature and when the weather warms up that’s where I am most of the time. I hike more by myself or with my kids and usually camp a few times a year but never by myself. Lol, except once in a cabin with my kids. I would love to learn to be more self sufficient.

      Thanks so much for your comment Rose. We are so lucky to have some contributors such as Mary Lyons, Marinel de Jesus, Andrea Willingham, Emily Pennington and Natalie McCarthy that are all very experienced in solo travel and happily share so much of their wisdom with everyone. There is a lot more planned in the future which I hope you will enjoy. Thank you for your support.

    I never would have thought that the internet could bring outdoor activities like camping and hiking in the spotlight, being that outdoor types don’t spent time, well indoors in front of a computer! I am so glad you proved me wrong!

      That’s where I think we all benefit using the power of the internet as an indoor based technology to communicate so effectively and easily to those that love being outside. As ironic as that might sound, it obviously works, thankfully.
