When you’ve been on the road longer than you remember, sometimes you forget what the ‘real world’ is like. If the following statements apply to you then you, like me, have gone past the point of no return!
  1. You think 2 meals a day is standard practice
  2. You start every conversation with “so, where are you from?”
  3. Doing your laundry counts as your productive activity for the day
  4. You get anxious if you’re not sharing a room with at least one stranger
  5. You spend 20 minutes bartering for something you don’t even want, just to save $0.20
  6. Getting a Subway, McDonalds or Burger King is a big treat
  7. You have developed an strange accent and way of speaking for when you talk to people with little English
  8. You can’t remember the last time you did any ironing
  9. You celebrate when you find an internet café with both Skype and working earphones
  10. You start every story with “When I was in..”
  11. Your expectations of cleanliness drop so drastically that you think a room is clean when it only has one of the following: fleas, lice, cockroaches, bugs
  12. You find yourself wearing more than two bracelets
  13. You know how to say “hello”, “thank you” and “one beer please” in more than 3 languages
  14. Changing into a clean pair of underwear is a special treat
  15. You know exactly which section of your lonely planet contains what information
  16. You add people to facebook and find you already have one mutual friend from another point in your travels
  17. You know the different prices and options of international post, FedEx and DHL
  18. You count a night sitting on a bus for 12 hours as ‘one nights accommodation’
  19. You regularly freak out and think you’ve lost your passport
  20. You understand that wild stock and people can, and do, travel in the same mode of transport

One thought on “You know you’ve been traveling too long when…

  1. Number 5 is so true
    especially while chosing a room in a new city: can take a few hours to negociate with all Guesthouses from the neighbourgood!

    Good memories, thanks for this post!

  2. – it feels weird to speak in your own language again (if that’s not English)
    – your original set of cloth is almost completely broken and you need to buy new cloths

    1. this is very true! us native english speakers aren’t blessed with the language skills of our european brothers :S
