Charlie, 10

In the first few weeks of the holidays I went camping on Waiheke with my friends. I loved the feeling of waking up, walking outside and having the waft of bacon floating around.

Swimming in the crystal clear saltwater every few minutes.
Just me, friends and family, home an hour's ferry ride away.

Chilling, lying around, no rush, nowhere to be, but lots to do.
Camping, kayaking in the water, being dragged by Harry's speed boat so fast that my knuckles turned white clinging on to the rope being dragged behind.
