Review: Everyday Bangkok Hostel

After some research, Everyday Bangkok Hostel caught my attention. Here is the impression I had of the place: One can tell, that the owner puts his heart into this place. The hostel only recently opened its doors – so everything is new. What I particularly liked about it, was the colourful décor. Bold colours everywhere you look, high ceilings, a guitar in the living room which when played well earns you a free beer (awesome!). What we loved the most, as long-term travellers: big washing machines on almost every floor (1 whole load equals 40 Baht is incredibly cheap!) and plenty of hanging space in designated outdoor areas to dry. Good thinking guys!

Review: Loftel 22 Bangkok

We wanted to find cheap, but good, hostels for the remainder of our time in Bangkok. This was not easy. If I stay in a hostel, I spend quite a big amount of time reading reviews, as I don't want to sleep in bedbug infested places nor spend the whole night lying awake because a group is singing 'We are the champions' in a drunken state in front of our dorm room doors. It has to be a hostel with class.

But… I fell in love with Bangkok right from the start.

I needed to learn how to be independent again, how to overcome anxiety through realizing my strengths and capabilities through solo travel.

What is an Open-Minded Traveler?

If these are the criteria to have an open mind, then I’ve failed more than once. Does this mean I am a bad traveler? I’m not sure. What I know is, that when I went on holidays in the past, I crossed the line and found myself to be more like a traveler than a tourist so many times. And vice versa, while I’m now travelling the world perpetually and nomadically, I sometimes have the attitude of a tourist. But this relates particularly to one specific aspect:
