Necessity is the mother of invention, and the best ideas come to our minds by chance (as could be seen from a tumor on Newton's head). Those who admired MacGyver's adventures in their childhood can apply some interesting patents while on a camping holiday. They will not only make their holidays more enjoyable, but also impress their friends.

Evening by the fire

If during your stay at the campsite you feel like spending the evening by the fire, you can add a little sage to the fire . Its aroma will effectively drive away mosquitoes, allowing us to enjoy the charm of the moment - without having to drive away insects. Not everyone has access to fresh sage, so you can think about it when completing spices for your trip.

Another smart trick is to prepare a tick repellent yourself. All you need to do is mix tea tree oil with water in a ratio of 1: 2, pour it into a spray bottle, and then spray shoes, socks and trouser cuffs with the recipe. An equally interesting option is to store the matches in a plastic box with a piece of sandpaper stuck to it.

Convenience and comfort during sleep - foam mats

This is an advice that is useful not for those traveling with a camper, but for tourists who prefer a camping holiday, but who knows how we want to spend a vacation in a year, two or ten? An ingenious solution that increases the comfort of those sleeping in a tent is to put beach or foam mats under the sleeping bags. Imagine the comfort of sleeping on such a mat - often in the morning we wake up next to the mat, not on it, while comfortable foam mats will allow us to comfortably stretch our legs and assume any position without the risk of "hanging". Buying several will allow you to assemble the entire floor of the tent from them. As funny as it sounds, we can buy baby mats for this purpose, on which toddlers learn to crawl. If we additionally spread the bubble wrap under the tent, we can feel like we are on a comfortable bed. There is no question of not getting enough sleep.

A smart way to illuminate the inside of the tent is to put a flashlight on ... a bottle filled with water. The liquid refracts the light, becoming a kind of bulb. Very ingenious, isn't it? Another interesting concept is the storage of spices in Tic-Tac packages. So if someone likes these dragees, he may remember this tip.

Feel like MacGyver

There are dozens of such simple, but at the same time original ideas. They make your stay at the campsite much easier, so try them out. And who knows, maybe they will become an obligatory part of our holiday "ritual"?
