The Big Blog Exchange is a dream come true for all the 16 winners. Each of us has won the opportunity to travel to a new country for 10 days and experience the sights, sounds, culture, food and life the people and travellers in that country lead.
I spent the last day of my Big Blog Exchange adventure eating cupcakes and scones at the Hostelling International office in Welwyn Garden City.
All good things come to an end. And for me, that means my Big Blog Exchange adventure is finally over.
England is known for a lot of things and I just think it is important for them to uphold the reputation they've earned over the centuries.
My Big Blog Exchange was sponsored by Hostelling International (HI) - a global hostel association with hostels in over 90 countries. During my stay in Asia I was lucky enough to stay in 4 of them.
In a span of eight days, I visited the following: A place that celebrates a playwright that contributed to the English language and literature; I walked on the streets of a haunted but actually quite charming city; and I also visited a city that made a huge contribution to the Industrial Revolution.
Welcome to York, the most haunted city of all England! Europe, in general, has a very bloody history of wars and plagues. Some people even got their heads decapitated for silly reasons!
