Travel-obsessed fashion and lifestyle blogger Amy Marrieta is taking this summer by storm. When she isn't creating content for her blog and brand, she is custom designing silk scarves that we can't wait to get our hands on. And somehow Amy still made time earlier this summer to pop over to California to visit one of Glamping Hub's most secluded and out-of-this world accommodations.
We can't wait to see what glamping site she visits next. Check out how to glamp the right way with some stellar tips, accessories, and must-haves via the globe trotter herself.
What are your must-haves to bring on a glamping trip?
Sunnies, sunscreen, a Mophie charger just in case, and my A.M. CLUB silk scarves, because I'm constantly creating content and using them to tie up my hair.
How do your essentials differentiate depending on the area you’re glamping in?
Weather and convenience. Snacks are pretty important if there isn't food close by! I try to avoid being "hangry" at all times.
What do you do on the days leading up to your trip?
Lots of research. I'm obsessed with researching and planning—for some trips, I make Excel spreadsheets just to stay organized.
How do you prefer to travel to your destination and why?
It depends on where I'm going and how far. I always love a good road trip, but there have to be some stops along the way if it's a far one. I also love flying.
How do you research the accommodations amenities and features while preparing?
Google is my best friend when it comes to researching. I'll also check out tag locations on Instagram to see what other people post to understand the vibe.
What kind of events and activities do you plan before you arrive at the site?
It depends on the location. Joe and I like to try cool restaurants, jet ski, check out art installations or shows and go to beaches. We're not the biggest hikers but we do love to create, especially during sunset hours. He produces music, I write, we take photos and brainstorm ideas and plan—those types of things.
Which do you prefer: a daily itinerary or a go-with-the-flow game plan? Why?
I like to make a list and then each day when we wake up we decide, or maybe even the night before, so I guess kind of a mix. I'm a huge "to-do list" and "Post-it" person.
What is your top piece of advice for someone go glamping?
Research! Even if it's a last-minute trip, just do a little bit of research before so you know what to expect.
What are the five things you would never travel without?
Hmmmm, tricky. I'd say my phone, laptop, camera, toothpaste, and Joe.
