My next stop on this Australian adventure took me to Airlie Beach. Chloe had booked us into one of the hostels on the main drag. We checked in and went to our rooms. I mean I’ve stayed in some pretty bad hostels before, but this one was pretty gross. If we hadn’t already gotten some … More Airlie Beach and Then Some
We’ve left Auckland, NZ for the Gold Coast in Australia. Chloe and I were meeting her friends Baz and Keil there to have a weekend of fun! I met Baz and Keil when they were in London back in 2012 while Chloe and I were living there. Baz is from Australia and Keil is from … More Low Key Gold Coast Vibes

When getting off the bus I didn’t even notice a smell to be honest. We checked into our hostel, Rock Solid. They are … More Rotorua — What’s that smell?
Arriving in Auckland, I have no idea what day it is anymore! Flying into New Zealand has pushed us three hours ahead and I’m already confused… It was about 530am (local time) when we landed. Our bus to Matamata leaves at 745am, so we had plenty of time to kill….or so we thought. Customs ended … More A Hobbit’s Tale
