Camping gear checklist Posted by on May 31, 2012 in Grammar, Nature

Not every one wants to go on an organised tour for their holiday. Here is a basic checklist (lista) of the things you will want to take to enjoy your own camping holiday (wakacje kempigowe). This camping checklist is by no means complete and you will want to add some extra things to suit yourselves.

One of the most important things to do on any holiday is to be comfortable and to enjoy it. If you are comfortable sleeping on the ground that is fine, however if you prefer to sleep on a nice mattress, that is what you should take.

About the Author: Kasia

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.
