Upon arriving at the Aberdeen Youth Hostel I was met with an aesthetically pleasing exterior. The receptionist paid little attention but eventually I was able to check in. My room was clean and tidy, but unfortunately there was only one power point between 5 people. At this point I decided to evacuate my bowels. To my dismay the one toilet was shared between three rooms of gentleman and was in use. At this point I realised that the same ratio applied to the shower but luckily there were four sinks. When I finally satisfied my urges I braved the shower which fluctuated between Satan's oven and my ex-girlfriends icy stare of discontent. When trying to adjust the temperature you were met with a rapid succession of these sensations until you are forced, burnt and freezing to give up. By now I knew the perfect way to perk me up, I could use their tv room with computers to check my Facebook and book some more of my journey. Alas the Internet was down. So as you can imagine by now I'm wondering what my £25 is for. I concocting images of luxurious breakfasts with bacon in my mind, mouth watering I enquire about how one would break ones fast only to be told I wouldn't be even getting water. So I packed my bags, phone battery flat, burnt, not properly showered, busting to go to the bathroom, without any plans and hungry. As I trudged down the road for 20 minutes to reach any form of civilisation I stopped and pondered... Where the hell did my £25 go?
