For my 1st trip overseas to Europe I read and researched like never before. I, more or less, knew what to expect when I got there and at first it was exactly what I expected.
I don’t like smoking. It doesn’t matter if it’s Cigarettes, Human Bones, Crack, or plain ol’ weed. I find no appeal in it. Inhaling smoke into my lungs doesn’t make sense to me. But the 2nd time I went to the Netherlands I did it anyways.
There are wild monkeys in Europe!!! And NO I’m not talking about drunken Aussies stumbling through the streets after a Pub Crawl. I’m talking about the Barbary Macaque population in Gibraltar.
“We should start heading back to the hostel. It’s almost 6 o’clock and I’m ready to start drinking.” Wise words from my travel companions as we check out Gaudi architecture in Barcelona.
Hostels have to be the easiest places for meeting travelers. You all have a connection that brought you together. You’re all strangers in a new strange place. Whether it’s a few days or a few weeks you want to meet some cool people while traveling around. Hostels are the perfect place for that.
