Guys All Women Encounter When Backpacking

Let's take it back to happier times, before the Big, Bad Rona. After four months of backpacking through South America, I have become quite the expert when it comes to the backpacking male species. Every new destination brought new guys my way. Of course, I inevitably fell in love with all of them.

Because I'm like, such a good friend, I feel that you should prep yourself before you wreck yourself (or before they wreck you), and have compiled a list of men boys you'll encounter during your travels.

To All the Boys (Who Backpack) I've Loved Before: this list is dedicated to your dumbasses.

His sole purpose on his travels is to rack up his hookup count, so the constant movement of backpacking is perfect for his lifestyle. New cities mean new titties. The Man Whore is a gorgeous specimen, which is why he's so successful at what he does.

Awwinspiring Cat Travels The World With Its Owner

Former rugby player, Dean Nicholson, got tired of his day to day life and decided to go on a trip around the world, hoping for a change. What he got on top of that was an adorable kitty cat, who he named Nala, for a travel buddy. 

He told BBC that as he was cycling up a large hill into Montenegro, he "heard a wee cat miaowing from behind me. She was chasing me up the hill. So I stopped and pulled over and she just wouldn't leave my side. I put her on the front of my bike and got her comfy to take her into the next town. I went to find out if she was microchipped," adding that "she wasn't and she climbed up on my shoulder and fell asleep and I just thought that was it, she was coming with me on this tour."

Dean said that Nala changed him as a person, saying: "She has taught me just to slow down and enjoy life a lot more. Having her on the bike her needs come first and it slowed the tour down and now we stop and play a lot. If there's woods we stop and play and she loves running on the beach." He had to organize a pet passport for her, and together, they have covered about 10,000 miles.

Everywhere they are, the pair attract attention, and we're not surprised at all. We would probably be just as in awe as the rest of the local people if we saw Nala riding on Dean's bike or shoulder. One of the locals has apparently even given Dean a free beer as a result of the kitten on his shoulder, which we think is entirely justified and adorable. 

"We are going to spend winter in Greece working at some animal sanctuaries," Dean said. "Then through Russia in the spring and on to Thailand. I want that whole dream of sitting on the beach - with a coconut." We hope that his dream comes true and also that he doesn't forget to give Nala her own little coconut filled with delicious wet cat food. 

Check out their pictures together bellow, and you can visit their Instagramand YouTubechannel as well.

American Things that Non-Americans Think are Weird

If you spend your whole life living in one place, it's easy to think that the way you live is the only way it's done. For someone visiting, there are some easy-to-notice differences like how Americans are basically comfortable talking to strangers, and some other subtle things, like when cultures collide over what lemonade is. Here are some rumors about Americans that ended up being true and some very American habits.

American Habits That Are So American

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the various American habits that Americans didn't realize were so American. Sometimes one has no idea how absurd their habits are, because they've been so normalized by the culture and society they're living in. The outside perspective can be quite eye-opening.

This is incredible! How we wish we can do something like this with our cat! 

This duo, dubbed the "cutest couple," is traveling across China enjoying the beach, sunsets, and taking in the gorgeous scenery all around. This cat is living its best life and we're not jealous. Not even a little bit. 

Duoduo, the 1-year-old-cat, accompanies his owner Xiaojie everywhere. And when we say everywhere, we mean it. Also, we're about 103% sure this cat was a human in its past life. Just watch the video and you'll understand where we're coming from. 

Their bond and moments together are pure magic. Get ready to fall in love and not be jealous.

Western Foods that are Weird to Visitors

Admittedly cheese is kind of a strange thing, and to the uninitiated, it's hard to forget that sausage (at its best, even) is an animal's butt stuffed with itself. If you come from a land of avocado dessert milk drinks, then guacamole probably looks like an atrocity. Here's some culture shock had by Europeans in the United States. Culture shock can come from even the smallest things, like this cultural collide over what lemonade is.

Entitled Influencer Asks For Free Hotel Stay, Gets Told Off By Hotel Owner

We know that Millennials aren't all entitled cheapskates (we are Millennials after all) but we have to say that people like British YouTuber Elle Darby make us look really bad. 

Darby requested via email a free five-night stay for her and her boyfriend at a hotel in Ireland. Instead of paying the hotel, she would give the business "exposure" - the hotel owner was certainly having none of that and replied to her with a snarky email, which he has since published online. He even went on to ban all social media influencers from his places of business.

Do you think the hotel owner's response was fair or did it go too far? Let us know in the comments!

Email exchange between an entitled social media influencer and a hotel owner | My partner and are planning come Dublin an early Valentines Day weekend Feb 8th 12th explore area.

Dumb Complaints Entitled Tourists Had for Their Travel Agency

We hope that times are changing and people have a little more global awareness when it comes to travel. That said, there will always be people who think that you can just move a tropical island somewhere else. While that's horribly stupid, it is pretty fun to laugh at.
