10 things you’ll do as a backpacker that you wouldn’t normally do

1. Wear dirty undies, possibly inside out

2. Steal toilet paper from a public bathroom…especially if you’re heading to a region with substandard toilets

3.  Pee in the water…any water bc hey, you’re a backpacker, it’s fine

4. Have sex in a hostel dorm, or hear others who are having sex in your hostel dorm

5.  Lie about some aspect of yourself. Your job, your bank account, your availability, whatev. Sometimes a simple lie is more effective than a complicated truth

6. Eat at McDonalds, KFC, Starbucks, etc because you’re craving something from home

7.  Use ductape in place of stitches…the kind of stitches that hold together your backpack or the kind that holds together your flesh

8.  Eat something that you would prefer not to know the origins of

9.  Talk to someone for literally hours without thinking to ask their name

10. Hitch hike, crash on a stranger’s couch (hello, couchsurfing), and trust people that you don’t know to not steal your stuff ( every time you leave your stuff not locked up in a hostel)
