back to nature on Great Barrier Island - New ZealandWednesday, June 12, 2013
While home in New Zealand earlier this year we decided to take some real 'time out', and spent a few days on Great Barrier Island (also fondly known as The Barrier).
Living in London, my hubby and I never get any down time. Between work, travel, gym and catching up with friends we're lucky to get even one evening at home together per week. So The Barrier was a shock to the senses! No electricity, no toilet (we had to dig a hole), and a single hose from the stream for water meant we were well and truly back to nature. And we only had each others company.
But it was worth giving up these luxuries - even my iPhone. We had an amazing time....
