The Pine Valley golf course is the quintessential gold course. It has the most classical type of holes, although that does not mean that the course is by any means easy.

Its clubhouse is not as extravagant as other places, consisting of a great room and a bar. The course is over one-hundred years old and has been the course of choice for many professional golfers as well as celebrities.

Traveling on the cheap often means staying in hostels. This can be great if you’re a social bug, love getting to know strangers, are bursting to share your travel experiences, and adore making international friends. Staying in hostels comes with its own rule book, though. From navigating the social lounge, getting on with other lodgers, and feeling comfortable in staying in different places; staying in hostels isn’t always easy-peasy. So, below, I’ll give you some of the best tips for ice breaker questions, making friends, navigating shared facilities, and making your stays in hostels as comfy as can be. Let’s get stuck in!
Ice Breaker Questions
If you’re the social type, which is a given if you’re a hostel-style traveler, you’ll need some good conversation starters and ice breaker questions to open those doors to friendship.
Of course, there are always the basic questions travelers get asked: where have you just been? Where are you going next? Where are you from? Those questions, as a traveler, are the ones you’ll constantly be asked. But, the best questions to ask when you’re staying in a hostel, are fewer questions and are more like statements.
After initial introductions and basic questions are done, if they seem to be happy to talk, try this to get the conversation going. To really get someone drawn into a conversation, first, share a small story about your recent experiences while traveling – did something funny happen to you while you were trekking? Do you have an embarrassing story from the last hostel you stayed in? Maybe there’s something you’re a little confused about, could you ask for their advice on the topic?
There’s nothing like opening up to someone else to get them engaged in a conversation. Seriously, try it!
