We took a family holiday up in Oakura Bay, Northland in January. I turned off my phone, swam every day and never left the little beach community. As my life has become busier and more 'online' in recent years, it was a gigantic sigh of relief to cut digital ties and connect more deeply with my surroundings and loved ones.
I hope these beautiful pockets of New Zealand remain unspoiled for many years to come.
