The Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is full of adventure, it’s around every corner. Whether you enjoy zip lining, snorkelling, repelling into a cave, exploring an underground river, or following your GPS to a geocache. No, I did not misspell anything, a geocache.
Halloween has come a long way since the Celts celebrated the date as a transition from summer to winter. This year, don’t limit yourself to dressing up in a tacky costume, carving a wonky smile onto a pumpkin, and answering the door to a plague of irritating trick or treaters – head to some truly spooky dwellings, wild street parties or ghoulish haunts around the world instead. Here’s HI’s guide to the eeriest, and coolest, places to be seen this Halloween.
Are you planning to party your way through the summer and rave whilst feeling the sand between your toes? If the answer is yes, then read on. Hostelling International has some of the best beach parties’ locations, where clothing is just optional, music is compulsory and fun is all part of the plan.
Have you ever wondered why it is impossible to divide food and love? Nothing brings people together like sharing an appetizing meal and making conservation across the table, especially when dinner is composed with one of those ingredients.
