The exchanges may have come to an end, but the Big Blog Exchange journey isn’t quite over yet!
If you’ve been following the Big Blog Exchange from the beginning you’ll know that we have been setting our bloggers a string of challenges to complete both before and during their cultural exchanges. Before they took off we had the dare your exchange partner challenge – in which we asked our bloggers to be a bit mean and dare their exchange partners to do just one thing whilst in their country. Next came the blogger bucket lists, which saw our winners put together a wish list of once in a lifetime experiences and attractions to tick off while they were away. Last, but by no means least, came the Local Lingo video challenge – where our winners put together short video survival guides to help their exchange partners get by in their countries for 10 days.
Whilst they were away on their adventures we set them a few more challenges to complete, firstly we had the best hostel breakfast challenge, next came the the best landscape photo challenge, and our third challenge was the first part of our best activity video challenge.
Now it’s time to bring you the results of challenge number 4!
We asked our winning bloggers to send us a photo of their favourite hostel they had stayed in in the exchange countries, and here is what they came up with…
Ainoha, Brazil to Ireland – Knockree hostel
Belen, Argentina to Malaysia – Wira Kuala Lumpur hostel
Jono, Australia to Slovenia – Hostel Tresor (It used to be a bank, so he thought he’d rob it and escape on a long board!)
Kitty, Hong Kong to the UK – Bath hostel
Logan, Canada to India – Delhi hostel
Lucie, France to the USA – Baltimore hostel
Manuel, Spain to South Africa – Coffee Shack hostel at Coffee Bay
Marcela, Italy to Philippines – Mayflower inn Hostel, Cebu City
Nina, Slovenia to Australia – Sydney Harbor Bridge hostel
Purujeet, India to Canada – Whistler hostel
Roy, South Africa to Spain – The Hat hostel, Madrid
Ruth, UK to Hong Kong – Mei Ho House hostel
Stephanie, Ireland to Brazil – F Design Hostel, Salvador
Taralynn, USA to France – Yves Robert hostel, Paris
Tessa, Philippines to Italy – Ostello Villa Camerata hostel
Vincent, Malaysia to Argentina – Marcopolo Inn hostel, Buenos Aires
We had every member of the HI office cast their vote, tallied them up and we have our winning hostel photo.
Well done to all of our bloggers for these great shots. We’ll be bringing you the second part of our best activity video challenge very soon, alongside our best video interview challenge!
