Get out and see some amazing shit!

People travel for different reasons and do different things when they get there. I accept that. Personally, I do whatever: not just museums, or safaris, hiking etc the whole gamut. If it's there to do, I'll do it. Occasionally I just sit and chill. You have to. You've worked hard; you deserve a rest. Maybe once a week. Sometimes the whole week (aaah Goa, how I miss thee).

But now and again I get somewhere and am mibdblown by other people.

Vang Vieng was one. Amsterdam was another.

I stayed at The Flying Pig Uptown. Looking back it was the wrong hostel for me. Rave music played in the bar 24/7. Even during breakfast. They had acsmoking room for weed. The average age was maybe 20. Unfortunately I'd booked in for 4 days.

It was a cool place, don't get me wrong, but only for a certain kind if person. Maybe it's the case with all 'Dam hostels. Dunno.

There's so much to do: the Van Gogh museum, the Rijks Museum, the Heineken tour....why is why it pissed me off so much.

There was a dude in the dorm. The only time he got out if bed was to gondownstaurs and get high. Then he'd come back 'for a kip'. He was just there on a short break from England (everyone needs one of those) but still...

Get out and see some amazing shit!

It's ironic, just opposite your hostel is another hostel where another psychopath, just like you, killed someone.
