Glamping, and other puzzling trends in travel
"In British Columbia, Canada, the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, a 30-minute boat ride from the town of Tofino, is offering "glamping" on a fjord on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Tents have Persian carpets, down duvets and even electricity. There's a sauna and hot tubs on site, and activities including fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, hikes and wildlife-watching."
Persian carpets and down duvets isn't really considered "roughing it" in my book, but whatever. Another trend in faux budget travel to watch out for: Costeling, or staying in costly hostels. When you see the term costeling pop up in various places, remember where you heard it first!
