Retirement in a Tent: From Dream to Reality - Faye Hawtin

Retirement in a Tent: From Dream to Reality - Faye Hawtin

jax.goss@gmail.com 29/05/2019 0
When she retired, Faye Hawtin refused to settle down in a little house and grow roses like so many retirees. Instead, she got herself a tent and a dream and began traveling around New Zealand, exploring its campgrounds and towns. She has turned the letters she wrote to her family into a memoir of her adventures and, dear readers, it is a delight. This book is full of delicious titbits from all over Aotearoa, gathered up carefully over several years traveling around in a tent. Hawtin tells the stories of her adventures with humour and a tangible joy in having achieved this dream of hers. The pages are full of the kind of information you can only gather by exploring slowly, taking the time to investigate wherever you are and being willing to ...
