The scary hostel vampire she-wolf

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 29 October 2015 | Views [244]

There are many, many loud people at this hostel, who are not all traveling together but just happen to be here at the same time. One of the French men staying in my dorm said that he and our other dorm mates were wondering if I am a werewolf or vampire because I slept most of the day yesterday. They were wondering if I was okay. I smiled and said yes, asking if he'd seen my cameo in the movie Twilight. 

I am surprised that they were surprised- it's not uncommon for people to have strange sleeping schedules when they just flew in from Asia. Though admittedly I was feeling really moody and just didn't want to interact with any people after the overload of airports and taxi drivers and hostels and on and on. Budget travel is not designed for introverts, particularly in expensive places like New Zealand. The only way to be away from people for long periods of time was to be in my bed during the day, and then I just kept drifting off to sleep. of course, even then people are there to make judgments on your sleeping habits and forget to mind their own business :P

Today it is rainy and I'm about to eat some immodium tablets, though at least I'm up today. Hoping soon I'll get back to where I'd like to be.
