When you think about starting university, you expect to be filled with excitement about what the next three or four years of your life will be like. But you may still be nervous so to help we've put together some common concerns from students and how to deal with them.
Host Weekly Challenge: Week 6
It’s May, the Bank Holiday weekend is upon us and summer is getting ever closer. Under normal circumstances, you might have been travelling for a short break away over the long weekend or booking a well-deserved trip abroad for the end of term.
Unfortunately, with travel restrictions still in place, it’s unlikely you’ll be going anywhere exotic just yet. But that doesn’t mean you can’t dream of your next vacation or look back and reminisce about previous holidays. I mean, that’s exactly what we’ve been doing.
And while we were flicking through our travel snaps, we came across an image which got us thinking about holidays and travelling. What’s your favourite part about going on holiday and what’s your worst part? Do you enjoy travelling or do you find it a chore? But most of all, who loves packing to go away and who absolutely hates it?
Week 6: Guess how many Host houses we took travelling?
Well, not so long ago as we took a trip abroad. We not only had to do the usual packing of clothes and toiletries, but we also had to squeeze in A LOT of Host houses into our suitcases too.
So, when we stumbled across the photo of us packing to go on our travels, we thought it would be fun to get you guessing how many Host houses we took with us. In the photo below you’ll see two open suitcases crammed full of the houses. So, have a little scan, get your math hat on, do some calculations and have a guess!
Think you know the answer?
Once you think you know how many Host houses we took on our travels, then we want to know. All you need to do is head over to either our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter page and find the post relating to this challenge. You’ll then need to leave a comment with your answer and follow the other instructions in the post.
*Win with Host*
Although you can’t travel that far now, we wanted to get you ready for when you can. So, the person who guesses the correct number of houses in the suitcase (or the closest guess), will win an exclusive travel-related gift!
Get guessing and good luck!

Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
