A tree top view

After my holiday in Clarens we met up with some family and family friends in the Midlands. It was my uncles 50th so we all had a little mini holiday together. One thing that I love about our holidays together is it always reminds of the importance of family. I love my family so much and having little holidays like this together really makes me so happy.

The place that we were staying at was a tree house lodge and it was very different. I think what made the holiday was not the place but rather the people. If I had to describe the holiday in one word it would have to be laughter, I honestly don’t remember the last time i laughed that much. It was a very happy time and the perfect way to start the new year.

The houses were unique and had very different elements to each house. Our shower and bath were outside the house and the shower had these glass windows looking out into the forest which i have to say made me feel rather exposed. BUT it was an adventure and it cant be a proper adventure if you stay in your comfort zone.

One of my favourite parts of the whole trip has to be sitting under the trees drinking and laughing for hours. It was so nice to just relax and laugh together, at each other and at ourselves.  In that moment nothing really mattered apart from just being present and being together.

Below are some pictures of what the tree houses looked like. As you will see from the pictures there was a lot of this carved wood that after a point got a little too much.
