There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to backpacking. Like that everyone smells bad or that we are running away from our problems, but there is one assumption that does run true. Backpackers drink, hook up and party a lot. Basically just how everyone else in their 20’s does, we just happen to be doing it all over the world (literally).
I’m starting Dating Abroad, which will be a fun outlet for me to tell you about my dating experiences abroad. It’s scary talking about my love life online, but you know, Trump’s Prez, the world is coming to an end anyway so ferk it, amirite? (too soon?)
Even though I’m backpacking, I am still going through the same bullshit with men that any other girl my age goes through. Even though the men I meet are from all over the world, they are still the creepos like my stalker, the douche bags and the charmers. Though I use the word dating very loosely since I’m only meeting people for a couple days at a time and actual dates aren’t a thing in backpacker world. So, it’s not exactly dating. A more realistic term would be, flings abroad or hooking up abroad. But dating keeps it classy, so I’ll go with that for now.

A lot of travel bloggers write how it’s hard for them to hold relationships abroad (duh) or how they don’t have time to date people while traveling. Well, I’m Norah & I like boys & I think it’s fun to meet them abroad so I’m going to tell you about it, whether you like it or not. Mom, dad, the fam- I’m talking to you. Just skip this section if you don’t want to hear about my love life.
So join me (or don’t) for stories of the men I have met, kissed, crushed on, flirted with (kinda), and/or hooked up with.
I’m going to Carrie Bradshaw the shit out of this world.
