Abel Tasman Canyons
Canyoning is a combination of lots of fun stuff all bunched into one exciting activity. Trips normally start with a walk through beautiful scenery. Then it’s time to get the rubber suits on and start making your way down the canyon. You jump off cliffs into deep pools below, slide down water polished chutes and abseil besides or sometimes even through showering waterfalls. Most of the time you’ll be surrounded by steep walls covered in moss and ferns. And of course your guides will make sure you know exactly what to do. Going on a trip is the only way anyone can get to see these stunning places and experience all the fun stuff Mother Nature throws at you.
Unravelled Knit Kits
When life unravels us, we go back to the start - to a simpler version, back to old traditions like home crafts and cooking, caring and creating. We learn from those who have gone before and develop new skills and ways of being. We weave new meaning into the stillness and uncertainty, and find our own thread to follow that brings us back home. Jayne used knitting to do just this at a painful time of her life, spending four months in hospital at a time of physical and emotional turmoil. Knitting is what got her through. One stitch after another. Then rows, then whole blankets. Knitting created a space for her to recreate herself and forge connections with others.
