I have stayed in quite a few mixed-dorm rooms and I have some tips that helped me feel more comfortable that you can try out!
I often get questions about my race and nationality from Americans as well as foreigners. Being a biracial American leaves a lot of people in a fumble. “You are Latina, but you don’t act like it.

Kim Crosses Borders: THE DIARY OF A SOLO FEMALE BACKPACKER
I’m Kimberly, or you can call me Kim for short. I am a twenty- something year old Texan gal, who travels extensively around Europe. I backpacked solo around 5 different countries in Europe after college within a month time span, and caught the travel bug ever since then. Here, I share my personal stories, advice I have picked up along the way, and my personal pictures as a digital nomad. I am so ultra excited to bring you along my journey!
