21 Most Asked Questions Amongst Backpackers

It’s asked everyday at the hostel. Nothing wrong with the questions since I’m a victim of asking them as well but they do get tiring having to answer all the time. Still, it’s a lot better than getting asked “So, what do you do for a living?” back at home. I got so accustomed to people asking me these questions that when I went home to visit, it felt weird not having this type of conversation.
