We were pretty taken with this short film about a ‘hut warden’ working in the New Zealand wilderness. Perfect for anyone who dreams of escaping the rat race (and doesn’t mind dealing with the odd rat from time to time).
“It’s like kneeling in a bath of porridge with a rainstorm coming down on your head.”
It’s no secret that we enjoy ogling the odd rustic cabin nestled in ridiculously good-looking scenery. Happily, the country of Switzerland is full of these places, surrounded by Toblerone-shaped mountains, sparkling glaciers, rushing waterfalls and the odd Alpine goat. Here are some handsome-looking places we put together with our friends at Switzerland Tourism.
In what could be one of the most fun experiments in history, Sweden is inviting people to stay in these immersive cabins for 72 hours, to see whether stunning views, swimming and fishing is beneficial to their well-being. (As far as experiments go, it sure beats drug trials and sleep studies.)
