Literally in my own bubble.
These past few weeks have been VERY STRESSFUL. Hell, really these past few MONTHS! I had to cancel my trip to Thailand, I got crazy busy at work, and my anxiety has been through the roof! This mini getaway was much needed.
This “glamping resort” is usually booked out two years in advance, so when I saw a cancellation last week I had to jump on it!
Sidebar: Sometimes I hate that I’m so spontaneous, but I really needed to get away moment in time! It felt AMAZING to clear my head, step away from work and the computer, and really just take in the scenery.
Mountain scenery is officially my favorite type.
I stayed in Bubble X. This bubble is usually for bigger groups and honestly, I enjoyed having the space to myself.
Here are some of the features:
If you’re planning to road trip to a bubble soon, here are a few tips to consider.
- Before you take your trip, be sure to pack lots of snacks, water, wine, and anything else you think will make your trip awesome! A few necessities are: bug repellent, water, closed-toe shoes, a lighter, canned foods, and a flashlight. Also, be sure to print off the instructions sent to you by Basecamp Terlingua.
- Terlingua, Texas is about 10 hours away from Houston. Don’t tell anyone, but I got there in 8. Lol. Once you get into the mountains, it’s a straight shot and the scenery was breathtaking.
- Make sure you have gas. This sounds like a no-brainer, but like I mentioned, in the mountains there is no where to stop for gas…for at least 300 miles.
- Once you get to Terlingua, grab your instructions and head to your bubble. Basecamp Terlingua has tipis, bubbles, retro trailers, lotus tents, and casitas.
- If you’re staying in a bubble, listen carefully: once you unzip the bubble, go in fast because the bubble will deflate. Trust me.
- Once you’re about to go to sleep, be sure to zip tie the zippers closed. I’ve watched too much “Snapped” to not try to secure myself in some way. 🙂
I only stayed one night (because I’m not rich, yet), but this night was literally perfect. Looking up at the starts was just mind boggling.
