This weekend is something I needed to happen, recently I have been far too comfortable with the routines of my life in fact I feel like I have just been stuck on loop of wake up, work, come home, sleep which at the end of the day is not how I wish to live my life.
My friends and I booked this holiday a month back as we wanted a holiday together but of course, COVID-19 stopped us from going abroad so we thought we would do “glamping” in Devon. Upon arrival to our “glamp site” in the middle of no where, we realised that we didn’t have nice showers or toilets but in fact there were “portaloos”, the lights also decided they weren’t working and the fire was a challenge to say the least, after a good hour of trying a gentleman kindly came and helped us, then we finally had a fire burning. With this in mind my “everything happens for a reason” quote kicked in and thought this is a challenge that I am willing to take on. Still with no lights we decided to light some candles and sit around them, I can honestly say it was such an amazing setting and something I might do more at home.
Being the spontaneous lot that we were this holiday we decided to go with the flow, the first day we went to a town for a little bit of shopping and brunch. After this we made our way to another town but one in which was a “seaside town” where we spent our afternoon looking at waterfalls and sitting by the sea. While enjoying this day we decided to book the zoo for the following day to give us something to do. Once again as spontaneous as we are, we decided following on from our trip to the zoo that we would visit the local reservoir to go for a dip.
I can honestly say that this holiday was the most eye opening journey ever, I’ve learnt about living with what you’ve got, such as a bag of wood, some matches, no light, no phones but some candles, great company, deep conversations and a warm fire. It’s not the situation your are in, it’s the way you look at it. Some could say I was cold, in the dark, in the middle of no where, with cows mooing. I say I had a warm fire, beautiful candle light, the sound of nature, great conversation with great company🥰
It’s the way you look at life🦋😇
