This is a travel journal, but one that was never intended for publication. Fate has brought it out in the open. Herein lay the harsh circumstances that led to the disclosure of these personal accounts of a lone, working-class vagabond and his experiences in the hostel environment. This journal contains his thoughts, feelings and observations of life on the road and at home. It explores the advantages and rigors of traveling solo and on a budget via these unique lodgings in various locales around the world as well as the turmoil felt at home by this lone traveler. In it are the thoughts and feelings of this young globetrotter on the human condition, art and architecture, history and cultures, God and the global community. These are tales of self-discovery and growth with a mixture of sex, drugs and lost love. Hosteling is not for the faint of heart. Could you survive the hostel environment?
