Tinder was just an app that sat on my phone unused, all the the while that i was seeing someone back home. But now months later, i was single, independent & travelling solo! I thought, "what the heck, its only gonna be one date anyway! - Tinder To The Rescue!" I swiped right on an Indian guy that showed up nearby (yeah, i was swiping right for an Indian guy even in the Land of Gorgeous Men! *L-A-M-E*). I met him at the bar in the basement of my Hostel for a beer but he turned out to be just as lame as my choice was to begin with! :P
Next thing i know, i was trying to sink into the couch in the Social Room of Alessandro Palace Hostel all alone with some coffee & a random girl just plonked herself next to me! Half her hair was shaved off & she looked like the coolest, funkiest girl i had seen in Rome. She introduced herself as Britta & we really hit it off! Soon we were a group of 5 (Britta, Jack, Dani, Graham & I) & we decided to open a bottle of wine to kickstart the night! We started out at as complete strangers at 10pm from Alessandro Palace Bar & landed up getting back to the hostel from a pub crawl at 3am that ended at The Yellow Bar!
