Tents

People have been living in tents for thousands of years. Think of the Mongolians and their gers, the Bedouin in North Africa and the native Americans. As time progressed, people started building houses of stone which became standardised almost everywhere in the world. But what if it is possible to go back to a more natural way of living, in a tent for example?

More and more people decide to live in a tent for a longer period of time. There are various reasons to choose this lifestyle including the fact that it is cheaper, you live closer to nature and you gain more freedom.

There are different types of tents to live in. Yurts, teepees, gers and lotus bell tents to name a few. Dependable on your needs you have to keep a couple of things into account. Do you want to live nomadic or have a homebase somewhere? What are the weather conditions in the area you want to put your tent? Do you want to go basic or do you prefer a more luxurious lifestyle? As long as you take the time to figure out what your needs are and research different options for the tents, almost everythig will be possible!
