My First Visit To Great Barrier Island

Let me share with you a story about my first visit to Great Barrier Island (Aotea). After all, it was this trip which I took around the Christmas time back in 2008 that made me think about what it would be like to live on Aotea and whether it would be a worthwhile option for me. It all started with me wanting to have some time off and wanting to ‘go away’ for a couple of weeks.
