This Couple Have Spent 7 Years in the New Zealand Wilderness

Journeyman Pictures

Many people fantasize about leaving the stresses of an urban world behind. Miriam Lancewood and her husband have taken this wish to an extreme, having spent the last seven years living in the wilderness. Subscribe to Journeyman here:

For the pair, the bush presents more elemental challenges to those faced in modernity: “every day is about surviving”. However, they have no desire to return to the city. “How can you deal with a monotonous existence…I have no idea?” In fact, Miriam hopes to inspire others through her alternative lifestyle, by releasing a book about her experiences: 'Woman in the Wilderness'.
