Memories Of Travel To The Sea

Auckland-born DJ and BBC Radio 1 presenter Zane Lowe describes his life in travel with the Independent. Lowe’s first holiday memory is driving to the Bay of Islands. “I remember being packed into my dad’s car and it being really hot, because there wasn’t any air conditioning,” Lower recalls. “I loved being by the ocean, though, and that mixture of being active and inactive on family holiday. It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world to visit. [My favourite swim is at] Oakura Bay in Northland. There are great waves and the scenery is amazing.” Lowe is performing at the Snowbombing Festival in Mayrhofen, Austria from 9-14 April.
