Christmas day was interesting…. When I woke up it felt like any other day, no snow, beautiful weather and a great view. After talking to a few people, we were all in the same boat… what do you do when you’re away from home for Christmas? No family, no friends? A small group of people started drinking by the pool and after a few minutes the whole hostel was drinking and we had a giant party. I would say it was the best Christmas I’ve ever had even if I wasn’t with my family. Later that night the whole hostel had turkey dinner together, I skyped with my family was really nice to see everyone together. The hostel celebrated more that we were all spending Christmas in such an exotic place, it was a great night with great people.
