I have the exact same story in Amsterdam. I just hated the room I was allocated, the bunk was a top bunk which I don't like and to top it off, the staff were rude to me if I wanted to change rooms. I just said fu** this and left.For me it was at a hostel in Perth the penny dropped. I would have been... 30ish.
I was like looking around the place thinking "I am too old for this sh*t" and checked out, and check into a hotel down the road.
Depends on your personality as well.By the time you get to a certain age, you won't really be meeting anyone anyway most of the time - varying by location and type, so why bother.
That sounds like heaps of fun dude. Awesome way to bounce back after a break up.Depends on your personality as well.
I was 45 and met tons of people in Central America. Plenty of hook ups too. Over twenty or so in just over 3 months. Varying ages, but mostly early 20's a few 30's and one in her 40's.
And that was actively trying not to be creepy or actively hit on chicks, because I was still pretty devo about my own situation. The whole trip was supposed to the traditional couple trip to South America with my GF of 5 years, but she broke up with me a few months out from us going, and I just decided 'screw it, I'm doing this solo'.
Sorta bounced from messaging her via dodgy hostel wifi, getting my phone confiscated to stop me messaging my ex, beer pong and the usual card games and hostel story-telling.
It's just kind of hard to avoid in that environment. People travelling are generally always looking to hook up, or open to it.
Thanks man.That sounds like heaps of fun dude. Awesome way to bounce back after a break up.
