But they do make you work for your home comforts. All the taps work on a pump system, the shower too, and the water for this has to be heated up on the fire and poured into a big bucket outside the hut. The firelighters provided are eco-friendly but you practically need firelighters to light them with. I've not really used the gas hob. That feels a step too far towards civilisation and the camp fire is, for me, one of the best bits about being here. Has a sausage ever tasted more delicious?
The iPad, the television and the boxes stuffed to the gills with toys are a distant memory. The new friends will be remembered for a long time.
On my return, I've got a very exciting project to be getting on with and I'm really looking forward to that. A collaboration with a very lovely and talented young lady. All will be revealed next week, hopefully.
Until then, Hi De Hi! x
