A Little Road Trip

This week I went on a little road trip around the central North Island of New Zealand. If you follow my instagram, you’d be able to see some of the photos that I took.

Beautiful Florence

As some of you know, I recently went on a Contiki tour of Italy.  I always thought I wasn’t the sort of person who would do a Contiki, because I am not a partier.  However, when I got on the tour I realised, that despite all of our differences, we were all similar – looking to experience the culture, history and food of Italy.

An Afternoon Spent Wandering

Early this afternoon I arrived in London.  I managed to find the hostel pretty well.  It is the YHA in St Paul’s.   If you aren’t a member of the YHA and you are a budget traveller, than you should probably join up.  It’s only 5 pounds for under-25.
