Upscale camper design

From Tony House Blog: If a Moroccan tent and a trailer had a baby, and that baby went to charm school, it might look just like the Opera. The Opera is manufactured by the Netherlands-based Your Suite in Nature (YSIN) and was designed after the Sydney Opera House. Read more about the specs here.

The Opera is about 2,973 lbs. and is available in three color schemes. It’s being sold in Europe and Australia for approximately $36,152. If you are on a budget maybe these tents will do.

Spring has sprung on the Dutch countryside

Spring has sprung on the Dutch countryside. The vibrant blues, reds, pinks and yellows sprawl as far as the eye can see in Lisse, western Netherlands, where farmers hope to make huge profits selling them to florists and supermarkets around the world. The fields can hold over 60 million tulips at any one time. Today Holland produces more than nine billion bulbs every year, of which two thirds are exported overseas (mainly to the U.S. and Germany).
