If you have traveled anywhere on a budget, you have likely experienced the joys of hostel living. I’ve been traveling for the last nine months, and in that time I’ve grown to love hostels. The friends that are made, the stories that are shared, the beers that are consumed, and the connections that are solidified.
No one in my circle of family and friends had ever taken on a trip of this size. The inspiration was present in the form of blogs, pictures, books and websites, each one tantalizing me to visit their country on display. But who was there to show me the logistics, like information on what to do with my cat, which ticket to buy, what do I do with my mail, or the big one: how much to budget?
