After dodging a flu bug that laid low half of the team at work my luck ran out earlier this week...๐Ÿค’ . . As I was/am still flat on my back I browsed through social media and was struck again by the share number of "clichรฉs" still in evidence ๐Ÿ™„, you know, the open tent with the view, the feet dangling off the cliff, the hand outstretched... . Anyway here's some clips from a trip some years ago from a location you can't drive to, in conditions your average "insta" tent won't last an hour in and where a miss timed step or trip, will literally be your last.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ . . #moodygrams#allbeauty_addiction#nzmustdo#newzealand#destinationnz#ig_myshots#nzimagery#mthrworld#depthsofearth#beyondthelands#special_shots#bestnatureshot#igworld_global#peoplewhoadventure#earthoutdoors#earth_shotz#uniladadventure#nzgeo,#nikonnz,#discover_newzealand#bestnewzealand#epicworldpix#newzealand#earthspirit#ig_newzealand#nzimagery#travelnewzealand
