As my 30th birthday edges closer, I have planned to do what countless university graduates do aged 21 – take a year out Down Under.
It is one of the biggest fights you have as a traveller – to what extent should you be planning your trip?
Full disclosure, it has been three years since I last stayed in this hostel, but it if always my first choice every time I’m in Paris.
I have stayed in this hostel a number of times, due to its proximity to work. Post gig or pre shift, it’s a good – if not basic – place to spend the night.

Amsterdam Day Three: Anne Frank and tourist traps
Day two started off on a bad note – a lovely bit of street harassment before 10am. Some guy walking towards us said something in a language I didn’t know and grabbed me round the waist with both hands.
