While I lived in Auckland, my happy place was the top of the sky tower, on the sky deck.
It was even better if it was foggy with zero visibility. Just total isolation from everything and everyone, 222m above the ground. It’s especially fun when its windy, the tower can sway up to 2m in any direction in a strong wind.
[here comes the soppy part]
Now my happy place is simple. Lying in the dark, late at night, talking on the phone to Becky. If I close my eyes it almost feels like she is there with me <3
