Hey! I’m Molly. I was traveling around the world in 2020, starting with a one-way flight to New Zealand. I had to put things on pause due to the global coronavirus pandemic, but I hope to someday resume my travels. As the Kiwis say: kia haha. Stay strong.
24 hours in Reefton gave me my first taste of New Zealand’s West Coast hospitality, in the form of pub crawls, Kiwi breakfasts and accidentally kind of hosting a horse race.
My first-ever multi-day hike went awry in many ways — rain, rats, miscalculated distances, strange hostels. But let me tell ya: it makes a great travel tale.
My last couple weeks working at the hostel involved a lot of friends, barbecues and beach selfies — you’ve been forewarned.
