Camp Under the Stars in a Bubble Tent
You won’t see one of these at a Jellystone Park anytime soon, but we think it’s a unique way for people to enjoy the outdoors. These are being rented in France for 400 pounds a night ($640 US dollars!) Here’s an excerpt from the Daily Mail article.
Anybody trying these outdoor gadgets might want to bring a pair of curtains. For although they look and feel more like giant goldfish bowls, these latest inventions are actually totally see-through inflatable tents. With incredible panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, the bizarre transparent structures are designed to get people as close to nature as possible.

But they are far from the traditional camping trip – decked out with wardrobes, shelves and electric lights, the bubbles look more like a movable hotel room than a regular tent.
Launched this year, the structures can be now be hired out at sites across France for around £400 pounds a night. And since then British tourists have been flocking to the country to try out the new camping experience.
French designer Pierre Stephane Dumas said his ‘BubbleTree’ creations are ‘unusual huts for unusual nights’. He explained: ‘Having a night under the stars or seeing the sun rise and set is not something that many people experience anymore. ‘A normal tent or camper van means people miss out on these things. ‘So I designed this eccentric shelter with the aim of offering an unusual experience under the stars while keeping all the comfort of a bedroom suite.
