New Year, New Post

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you all had a relaxing holiday season with people you loved.

I went camping in a place called Kaitoke, which is better known nowadays as the place where Middle Earth’s ‘Rivendell’ was filmed. Even though the set itself has been removed, you can still picture the Elven settlement from the Lord of the Rings films, and of course the nerd that I am was delighted to explore the set none-the-less.

The weather held up beautifully the entire week, so we had four days of sunshine and three nights of satellite spotting in starry skies, and I loved being able to explore, swim and relax away from technology. I even spent some time sketching in the shade, dedicating a sketch to sitting under the stars.


Sometimes its the simplest pleasures like camping and relaxing that make you appreciate life and all it has to offer.

Thanks for reading!
