What is it like to live in a Yurt? | Beachside Minimalism | Lotus Belle Tent Trippin’


Welcome to Chrysantilus. Chrysantilus is
a lucid realm of Dreams, meditations, and actualization. It’s all about making
space for mindful moments and getting what you need out of life Something I’ve been wanting more and
more out of life is to have less and less. for the past year and a half I’ve
been donating and selling the vast majority of my belongings and downsizing my life the ultimate goal here is to be more
fluid, portable, and less weighed down by my material existence
so that I can travel live and move when need be. Because of this I’ve been
recently reflecting more on how I want to live and where I want to live. Earlier
this year I stayed in a tiny home Getaway cabin right around Shenandoah
National Park. I got so much out of this experience it showed me truly how little
I need to survive and it puts excess into perspective. Like what actually is
excess? Of course camping does this but having a shelter, a little tiny home it
was really special. For today’s experiment I wanted to answer the
question “What is it like to live in a lotus bell tent?” So we booked an Airbnb
to find out! This Lotus Bell Tent is located between a
beach and a cornfield and the vibe is mad beachy this tent sits atop a wooden platform
that also features a porch area on top of a beach area. The Sun hits it just
right, it really felt like the porch of a house and I totally enjoyed this little
beach area too. Let’s head in! We even got a fan & everything. Amazing, got
this little pillow corner The bedside, (Yeah) Hello, we just got inside of our yurt It’s nice. I loved the decor there was art and
furniture from all over the world and it felt like I could literally be anywhere
here on the east coast, on the west coast, abroad especially because you can’t see
the outside, this here, it was super conducive to fantastical thinking and
imagination and you know just living the dream leveling up, it’s really on like a
glamping tip. The grounds also utilized outdoor living areas for making food and
going to the bathroom. I loved this because it forced me to get my butt out
of the tent and into nature. The kitchen area featured lots of amenities and a
sweet area for eating with this hanging table, despite the ants, I could and would
definitely live like this. Wanna I get coffee? (Coffee Time) there was no indoor eating so all of our
meals were outdoors ~ with the plants, with the animals, with the ants, with the
insects, with all of them! Family meal. And I was all about that because honestly,
just in terms of habit cultivation, I need to spend more time outside. The vibe of this trip was very much again like glamping, but also it felt like we were
castaways on an island in a good way. You want to go to the beach today? It was an incredible meditation on just,
for folks who have chosen this life & a lifestyle like this, how getting outdoors
can be effortless and how you can set up your life in ways that, you know, push you
into the house or push you out of the house it was a huge difference the
biggest difference, was again, that we just spent such little time indoors, it
was ridiculous. We ate outside, we beached, we walked
around town all day, and we basically only slept inside. I spotted this fig plant, that was cool
because I ID’d it, no no big flex but I ID’d it. The vibe was just super DIY like
even the bathroom and the kitchen area it really was like art, literally the
entire setup. And was in a lot of ways more environmentally conscious like this
tent came to eat and even the cornfield, like I was all about that cornfield I
was just like “yes let’s go with it, absolutely”. Overall I enjoyed getting
more time with nature, and Zoe, and less time indoors
I enjoyed the fantasy and the spirit of the decor, like *ribbit*. At night the tent turned
into a romantic shelter of string lights and lively sounds of nature we stayed up
all night playing games like card games and just enjoying some analog
entertainment for once not having food or drinks in the Lotus Belle Tent was the
hardest part of our stay, but if I ever get my own tent
you can bet it is going to be tea party and sweat bath central that’s all I have
to say. Thank you so so so much for joining you
today in our Yurt life adventures on this Yurt trip and it’s kind of getting
late so it’s a sleepy time and everyone is going to quiet it so I’m going to quiet,
and I’m going to go to sleep And I’m gonna go to bed, I’ll see you next time Goodbye now!
