confessions of a female traveller

The boys just don't know how good they've got it. 

 

1.   They don't have to worry about smarmy / sleazy / creepy men looking at them, waving at them or saying hello.  Luckily this isn't a huge issue, but every now and then I'm like "really? Are you really waving at me?  Really?"

 

2.   In a 12-bed co-ed hostel room they can easily pull on a pair of shorts after a shower & wander around like that to continue drying off, getting dressed etc.  Not so easy for a gal.  Although my getting-dressed-in-public skills have vastly improved with years of living in an open tent field, it's a little different in a room full of complete strangers.  Have you ever tried putting on a bra without exposing any flesh?

 

3.   They never have to worry about having their travel plans disrupted once a month, when all of a sudden you have absolutely no desire to be a tourist, and you really just want to curl up on a cushy couch, watch a movie and eat chocolate.  Difficult in a hostel. 

 

Too much information boys?

 

Deal with it.
