Southeast Asia backpackers stick out like a sore thumb.
We look the same, eat the same, and do the same stuff.
Have you really backpacked Southeast Asia? Here are 20 signs you have.
You know what toasties are, so you know that toasties are life.
2. Elephant pants
Don’t lie, you own them.
3. Crusty feet
Go get a fish pedicure for fucks sake.
4. Dumb tattoos.
Dumb tattoos are the official symbol of the backpacker.
5. Drunk piercings
Mom and Dad would be so proud.
You’ve shotgunned more beers than you ever should have.
7. Tiger balm
Bug bites? Tiger balm.
Sore throat? Tiger balm.
Broken leg? I’m sure tiger balm would work.
Everyone’s 2 AM best friend.
9. Hostel pets
Can I pleeeease take it home?!
10. You’re broke
“It’s street food or nothing guys!”
11. The Alchemist
“It’s sooo inspiring man!”
Because safety is the only thing you’re worried about when you’re rocking your roommate to sleep from the top bunk of your bed.
“I’m sure no one else packed these!”
14. Bamboo tattoos
Nothing screams “fuck it” quite like letting a stranger permanently ink up your body with whatever they want.
15. Local beer and Pub Crawl tanks
A poor backpackers favorite treasure!
Because normal drinks are for amateurs.
17. The constant echo of “Despacito”
NOOO, not again!!
18. You’ve dressed up like a moron
Someone, somewhere has some very questionable pictures of you.
“One of us! One of us!”
20. Scooter wounds
If your wounds didn’t come from a dumb drunken night, than they came from those damn motorbikes.
