Charcoal stand BBQ, usually in fantastic forest or riverside or lakeside,
here its field with tents and a shower block
I live in Ontario and go camping all summer. Have "advanced" from tent, to pop tent trailer to a new trailer this year (which I am still waiting to pick up).
Camping is second nature though. Great sites, deep in the woods and on lakes with lots of facilities and decent weather.
Ireland in the wind and pissing rain, I'm not so sure...but there is a lovely trailer site out in Roundstone which is a beauty spot.
Also, went to France on a kind of packaged camping holiday as a kid. Had these "tents" that were more like cabins with three rooms. Decent set up
