I'm a world traveler by past military & civilian travel. I started hosteling in 1978 when hostels were a lot more primitive & in disrepair than what the standard is today. I was fortunate to be stationed in Spain at age 20. I like going to developing countries for culture shock (although not much shocks me anymore) & I enjoy "trophy" areas too that have their own draw.
