Tips for Cooking while Camping


Ever wondered if you can eat the same luxuriously tasting food, while enjoying the warm blaze of a campfire, under a clear starry night with nothing but silence surrounding you? Cooking while camping is a cumbersome job. As camp stoves can be bulky, and heavy people often chose the BBQ, as it is often the easiest piece of equipment to transport. However, many other methods for cooking outdoors do not require much equipment. Some options are as follows:

  1. Wrapping food in aluminium foil and putting small packages amongst hot coals will lead to success, and is fast.
  2. Use a grill over hot coals for grilling a range of marinated vegetables and meats; this will also yield a tasty meal.
  3. Measuring out food portions before going on your trip will minimise the work once you are outdoors, even pre-cook a dish so you just need to warm it up in the coals.
  4. Managing your fire is essential for cooking while camping; this ensures you get the perfect all round temperature needed.

Have a go and explore some ideas, just remember that meat must be cooked thoroughly. If you are going ‘outback’, do ensure you have done your planning and food organisation, and that you are clear on what your DIY camping kitchen system requires – no shops around the corner for anything you forget.

Backpacking in Australia alone can be a great adventure

Is backpacking in Australia alone safe?

For decades Australia has been a very popular destination for backpackers. With traveling becoming more and more popular among women, a lot of people wonder if traveling alone in Austraia is safe. The first big advantage that someone backpacking in Australia alone might experience is that the main language spoken Down Under is English. Yes I know, English is not everyone´s main language, but I am sure we can agree that communicating in English for most travelers is easier than other languages. Therefore asking for directions, safety information and help will not be a big issue. And since Australia is used to women backpacking in Australia alone, they have a good structure to receive those travelers. Most deserted areas have a registration point from which they will start out a search if they have not heard from you for a determined period of time. The majority of hostels possess all female dorms, so that will allow you to sleep with more ease. Another advantage of using hostels is that you will meet a lot of people so that you go out you can go as a group. But even though Australia is a relatively safe country, of course, you will need to use some common sense. Do not wonder off into the bush by yourself, do not get drunk with unknown people and don´t take rides from strangers.
