Tents, smores, stars and roasting fires. This is a compilation of experiences that can only be had when we reconnect with nature and stay in lodgings that are as luxurious as the Sultan of Agraba's hang out or sleeping without a roof over your head. Whatever your preference there's an experience for you.
