Just because you are going to a naturist club, nudist holiday or some other clothes free location, you may think “what do I need to go shopping for?..I will be nude!
All I need is some bare necessities, maybe some evening clothes and a towel!”
Well think again, and your outlook will maybe be different depending on your sex.
Typical alpha males tend to adopt a “That’ll do, it’ll be okay” type of attitude when preparing for their holiday, and would possibly be happy with a flight bag stuffed with a towel, toothbrush and pants, and that’s for a conventional holiday!
Many nudists would have sympathy for this attitude, after all, when you stay at a naturist resort such as Cap d’Agde, you simply roll out of bed naked, eat naked, go food shopping naked, and then take your nude self down to the beach for the rest of the day.
Women and less alpha males, on the other hand may take a different view. Women especially want to look their best, even in naked situations, and it starts with the application of make-up and finishes with a pair of quality sandals or beach shoes, and in between there will be the outfit to wear on the way down to the beach, or for lunch.
Ah, now you’re thinking differently…
Also, what are you going to wear in the evenings? Whilst you may not want to portray yourself as having the last word in fashion,in practical terms it may get chilly in the evenings or you may decide that you want to venture away from your holiday venue for a meal at the local town. You can’t exactly stride into a conventional restaurant in your birthday suit demanding a table.
Then there are the what-ifs.
What if your travel company goes bust leaving you stranded for three days, or car breakdowns where you have to rely on foreign mechanical help, or, God forbid, a holiday accident or illness, where the family and friends are waiting for the victim to recover.
So yes, it is a wonderful notion to think to yourself that you can rough it for a week or two, on your naturist vacation, but the practicalities may outweigh the romance of the idea.
Here are just some of the items that you might need on your nudist holiday.
Sunglasses, beach towel, bags, picnic bags, books, beach clothing for to and from the naturist area, such as sarongs etc. Lingerie because at some naturist resorts such as Cap D’Agde you will see people in the evening wearing anything from fully clothed, to semi-clothed to completely naked.
Flip-flops or other beach shoes, camera, video camera, body jewellery, moisturisers, make-up sun lotions, hair accessories, intimate body care, sun beds, sun loungers, beach umbrellas, beach hats, walking shoes, beach games such as beach bat and ball, frisby etc.
Games for the apartment if you are going on holiday, ipod or other traveling music device, Ipad if you want to keep up with the going ons in the rest of the world. (Don’t, if you can help it, you’ll have a much more relaxing holiday if you don’t keep in contact with the rest of the world)
Luggage, of course, and then, depending on what style of naturist holiday, weekend or trip you are going on, maybe you need to hire a caravan or camper van or get a tent. Then you will obviously need all the appropriate camping equipment and accessories.
Are you flying to your naturist resort? In which case the list needs the addition of flight bags, comfy shoes, cardigan or something to slip over your shoulders in case the air conditioning on the aeroplane is too cold.
