7 Dubai pics that prove malls aren’t everything

Booking a hostel might be the best decision of your trip

My friend E. has just discovered the joys of hostelling. She’s not new to travelling but she’s never trusted hostels.

When she decided to move to South East Asia – something that did not last – she took my advice and booked a couple of days at a hostel first.

Whilst we have entered winter and might feel slightly depressed – read utterly devastated – at the upcoming dark and cold days, the other side of the world is looking at days on the beach, suntans and BBQ.

We would love to join them, we might have to live vicariously and only dream of where we could go if only we could escape winter.

Here are 7 of my favourite beaches in Aotearoa, an extremely personal – and probably contentious – list of places I genuinely cannot wait to go back to. Continue reading “The 7 best beaches in New Zealand”
