Normally going away for any length of time freaks me out a little you always end up working 10 times harder before and after your holiday to make up for it and I’m surgically attached to my iphone. However, when the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity came about to enjoy an extra 25 days holiday I couldn’t resist.
In the spirit of Mason Williams’s 25yr anniversary, here are 25 things I got up to during my time away:
- Saw in the New Year on a Fijian beach
- Travelled the length and breadth of New Zealand in a campervan
