Oh, the glamour!

For the past week we have been working for room and board at Te Hapu— a wild, beautiful, and remote sheep and cattle farm high on the northwestern tip of the south island.  New posts are piling up, but internet access here is costly so we’ll leave you with this quick one until we set off again…

In the last eleven months we have sampled the life of the rich and famous, soaked up countless million dollar views, and enjoyed the freedom of doing whatever we please. Indeed there are many times when we’ve thought, “it can’t get much better than this.”  This is not one of those times.
