What Are You Doing in my Swamp!?

What Are You Doing in my Swamp!?

By Aileen Lawrence

This October, Donkey has kindly decided to swamp-sit for Shrek. He loves the swamp so much that he, “can’t wait for guests to experience this muddy slice of paradise for themselves.” Hidden in the magical hills of the Scottish Highlands, Shrek’s swamp sits, moss covered, and mud filled with an ambiance of earwax candlelight that welcomes its visitors.  

To honor childhood glee and memories that will last a lifetime, Airbnb is advertising The Swamp to promote as well as make a onetime donation to HopScotch Children’s Charity – A charity that, as they say on their website, “provide respite breaks for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.” 

Up to three lucky guests have a chance to live their own fairytale ogre life. At an incredible rate of zero dollars a night you can request to book a 2-night stay at the swamp from Oct. 27-29 (though you will be responsible for your travel to and from Scotland).   

With Donkey in charge, prepare for the trip of a lifetime. Wake up to warm, freshly made waffles in the morning, trade spooky stories around the campfire, turn on a pufferfish night light for some swamp ambiance and pop a squat in Shrek’s infamous outhouse.  

This fairytale creature refuge is a secluded slice of ogre heaven that offers a unique, one-of-a-kind retreat like no other. So, if you’re looking to escape the insanity of Duloc’s village life, and live your own onion layered ogre fantasy, look no further than Airbnb. Bookings for the serene swamp open Oct. 13 at 10a.m. PDT.  

“Oh, and never mind the ‘BEWARE’ signs. They’re probably for decoration,” said Donkey.
