You're probably thinking, "isn't the series Hotel Highlight?" And, yes, technically it is. But here at Silly Little Kiwi we're all about finding the right accommodation for every budget and occasion. And we love a good hostel with character.
I'm just a silly little girl who likes to go places and tell her silly little stories.
SLK documents the adventures I've had across 5 continents & who I've become on my journeys.
I believe that travel should be seen as a privilege. Having a passport and enough cash to pay for your adventure is a lot more than most.
I believe that you should make the most of every destination by putting on a good attitude and being open to new experiences.
I believe that you should always try the local cuisine in a hole-in-the-wall establishment at least once on every trip. Bonus points if you go without a camera.
I believe that you've never truly marked a country off your list. There is always something you've missed. Always something left to discover.
I believe that the slower you travel the more you'll understand the culture, customs, and people of a place-- which will ultimately culminate in a richer experience.
I believe that every place you go will have disappointments. There will be annoying tourists talking loudly at a temple, or you'll get ripped off by a cab driver leaving you a bit jaded. Take the good with the bad.
I believe that you shouldn't be afraid to go anywhere, but that awareness is key.
I believe that you should assimilate to the culture you are enveloped in and be respectful of local traditions.
I believe that traveling will show you how resourceful, strong-willed, and brave you are.
