1935758_165112265285_1695751_nI’d stay at Kadir’s Yörük Top Tree House because who didn’t want to stay in a tree house growing up? Plus the atmosphere looks great! I’d bunk up with Jim Carrey. The man is a nut and would have me laughing the whole time. We’d explore the ruins and the beach and socialise with fellow travellers (with Jim as my comedic drinking partner!)

I’d have to go for Reykjavik – Loft Hostel, sit on the roof terrace and watch the Northern Lights with my dorm mates Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington, for the humour and ridiculous cultural observations. Then I’d explore Iceland’s volcanic beyond with Merchant, and leave Pilkington behind to moan. Iceland is one of those magical places I’ve been dreaming about visiting for years.


I’d stay at Salvador – F Design Hostel, Brazil because the hostel looks great, ‘social hosting’ as they call it is at the heart of their concept and Brazil is one my dream destinations! I can imagine a local capoeira teacher taking me under his wing and showing me around. We’d meet up with his friends and family to have grilled fish on the beach sipping caipirinhas to the sound of a smooth bossa novaParadise on earth!


I’d pick Sydney Harbour where you have the best view of the city, with history beneath your feet. I’d share some time with my grandma, who was taken way too early.


Wellness Hostel 4000 – Saas-Fee – Switzerland: sustainability, mountains, views, and uniqueness… what else could I ask for but going with great company?



I would stay somewhere on the west side of Canada… after just seeing a tonne of photo’s from there, the outside life  – on your bike or walking – just looks stunning. I’d stay with my friends, but if it had to be someone famous then Will Smith who’s done well in a lot of different things, or even someone like Bear Grylls (spelling) who I could learn some outdoors skills from.



For me, Leissigen Youth Hostel, Switzerland. The backdrop is beautiful and the hostel looks absolutely charming with its painted furniture and wonderful views.
