To go before I fly home. And bearing that in mind, every morning I look at all the stuff filling my room and wonder how I’m going to get it all back home. Apart from the H&M flurry, I can’t begin to imagine where it’s all come from, but I suppose a book here and a book there, some souvenirs from Vietnam, it all starts to add up.
But nothing compared with this.
This morning I head to the common room to make my porridge. And am greeted with an indescribable amount of stuff covering every available surface. Two young guys are wandering around scratching their heads. Picking stuff up and putting it down again. Laughing and joking.
Meet Lucas and Dangii from France. They’ve been at Hop Inn for 6 months as exchange students studying Business and Finance at HK University. After their 6 months, they took a month to travel to Myanmar and China, and today they were packing to fly back home. They were having a packing party in the common room. Oh joy. Hostel life is so different from being in a hotel. Not least of all because you get to see stuff you wouldn’t normally be privy to. And in my case, are so happy to realise you are not the only one who travels with way too much stuff.
Both were very happy to let me take photos and blog about them, in case you are wondering. In fact, it prompted them to take a couple themselves, except they couldn’t find a camera. I’m sure it will turn up guys. Happy packing.
