We locate our hostel for the night in the town of St. Andrews, Scotland and find the beaten-in side entrance. It looks as though this dodgy site has seen its share of people in need of anger management classes.
Oh, no!! What scary experiences are in store for us now?
We creep up the stairway and find a nice common lounge area and a clean kitchen stocked with dishes, pots and pans. A friendly gal in the small office shows us our room filled with bunk beds and large windows facing the street for the best Beeking view ever. Add in a welcome party for new college students across the street and you have a recipe for entertainment plus! Randy had plenty of new people to visit with and we grew to appreciate our new home for the next couple of days at St. Andrews Tourist Hostel.
The friendly hostel manager has lived all over the world. Fascinating conversations, to say the least.
Meet Laura Lizbeth, a face and body artist. She competed in the World Body Painting Festival in Austria in July 2015. Another interesting pair was a father/son staying while the father competed in a St. Andrews golf tournament. He won his regional competition to earn a spot to play on the prestigious course.
We meet so many interesting people by staying at hostels. It’s kind of like camping with a roof over our heads.
