Positively Pure | Lodestars Anthology

An architecturally astounding, off-grid experience that will teach you what it means to unwind in style. It's a strange moment when you realise that you've never seen a shooting star. Perhaps not surprising though - I've been a city dweller my whole life and camping hasn't always been my forte, having done it only once. In Ireland. In autumn. In the pouring rain. But that all changed on my first night in...

Southern exposure: my night in a glass house on Banks Peninsula | Stuff.co.nz

The sense of southern exposure was surprisingly thrilling. I'd been a bit dubious about the idea of spending a night in a cabin made almost entirely of glass: who knew what weirdos could be lurking in the thick bush that surrounds it?

A Night At A PurePod | Lost in the Haze

Let me whisk you all the way back to New Zealand for a second. And yep, I promise it will be worth it. A wee while ago now (longer than I’d care to admit!) we spent a magical few days in the Kahutara PurePod. I’m pretty open about my obsession with tiny homes (I really, really want to live inside a customised shipping container one day) so for me, this really was living the dream. Have you heard of...
