An Introvert’s Guide to Group Travel

When I found out I’d be travelling around New Zealand for two months with a bunch of other students this summer, my first worries were not money, hostel living, homesickness or anything of the sort.

Staying in Britain’s Only Authentic Hobbit Hole

Before you start reading this post, I’d recommend heading to Spotify or YouTube and putting on ‘Concerning Hobbits’.

If you’ve read my Five Places I’d Love To Return To post or my Adventurous Weekend in North Wales post, you’d know I’ve wanted to spend more and more time in Wales to make the most of being on the doorstep of this beautiful country.

How to Spend Three Days in Auckland

Whilst Auckland was by no means my favourite place in New Zealand, I definitely think a trip to New Zealand is incomplete without a quick stop off here.
