Get your wanderlust for the wild back—with a touch of the fantastic
My cousin and I used to spend our school holidays together. We were the sort with “overactive imaginations” who knew New Zealand was Middle Earth—long before the movies.
It’s been a few decades since then, but this summer took us back. We went off-grid, spending sun-drenched days adventuring all over her neck of the woods. We explored secret dells, streams, waterfalls, and alpine rock formations. We stood on the top of the world, looking all the way to the sea.
Of course, as kids, all we took with us was jandals (for the thistle patches) and our imaginations. This time, we had my video camera and flowy silk veils.
