—One of the best groups of strangers (now friends) from all over the world I have ever hung out with during my travels.—
I opened my eyes… and thought “Ugh it’s so fucking early” then I felt the cool breeze of the fan hit my penis… and thought “Umm why am I naked?”. I quickly saw that the 4 bed male dorm was full and quickly covered myself with the blanket. I searched for my sleeping shorts and put them on. I felt so embarrassed, but went back to sleep and didn’t think much about it.
I finally woke up got fully dressed and made my way to the hostel’s eating and lounging area. When I got there the few people there looked at me strange and asked how I was feeling… I let them know I was actually not hungover and just felt exhausted. Then they asked if I remembered what happened last night… I answered well I know we started drinking at 2pm at the beach and that’s about it. Then one of them mentioned “well you got naked infront of the entire hostel last night.” I said “what??? no fucking way…” and a few others laughed and nodded yes you did. I was laughing from shock and kept repeating “no fucking way… y’all are fucking with me” and then someone mentioned oh I think people have photos… I couldn’t believe this. I honestly just couldn’t.
I know I have done some crazy shit during my travels but getting naked infront of the entire hostel is something I had never done and never thought I would. As more people gathered I realized I wasn’t the only one who blacked out but quite a few of us did and that I must have really gotten naked because a few of them who didn’t black out remember me hanging out naked in the hostel…like nothing. Finally a friend of mine who took photos that night arrived and was laughing so hard at me… I didn’t care I wanted to see the photos. So I did and holy shit… yup there I was in all my glory naked wearing a cowboy hat (a fucking cowboy hat that NO ONE knows where I got from or what happened to it) and holding a piece of paper over my precious (a photo I now have, but will NEVER share… so don’t ask).
I busted out laughing I still couldn’t believe it and kept saying “WTF… I mean really WTF happened last night”? They let me know that I just out of no where appeared naked and was hanging out like nothing. I was laughing so hard… everyone was, but then we learned more about the night we all found it to be a very strange night indeed.
When everyone finally got up from our group of friends we decided to go out and eat some fattening greasy food, because none of us were feeling great. We all sat there talking and trying to figure out what all happened the night before and just kept laughing at all the stupid shit everyone did. Then later we were out at the beach still trying to figure it all out again. It felt like we were living the HANGOVER, but in Boracay… trying to figure everything out thinking this all can’t be true, when in reality it was. We concluded that we had started drinking around 2pm on the beach and each had about a bottle of Rum then from there arrived at the hostel and it was happy hour with a live singer and continued drinking through out the night while all the crazy shit happened including me being naked infront of everyone.
We decided to call that night NAKED NIGHT and from that moment on referred to it as that. The day after NAKED NIGHT none of us drank a single drop of liquor or beer and the following day we were all still scared to drink, but did. That time though we all stopped when we were buzzing and I stuck to beer…I was scared of the Rum. We all got some great laughs from it… I mean really how could you not? Everything else that happened that night is still a blur for most of us and was just too crazy… no nothing involved sex, but others did crazy shit too. I was also happy to hear I wasn’t the only one who woke up naked. One guy woke up naked on his balcony, because his girlfriend couldn’t get him in bed. Another girl woke up naked as well and almost missed her flight out of Boracay. But yeah none of them were naked infront of the ENTIRE hostel… so yeah I take that honor and well thought I should share this photo with y’all because I love y’all and even though it’s crazy it’s not that bad.
Yup that is me standing naked as if nothing is going on while others have conversations. Yes I’m so tan now that my ass is so white… so fucking white it looks like I’m wearing my white tiny swim trunks, but nope I’m not. I look at that photo and crack the fuck up every time. I think about that night & what I did and I crack up every time… as well. A part of me feels like I should be ashamed, but for some reason I’m not. Okay I lie I am a bit embarrassed, but what the fuck can I do about it now? Nothing… so now I & everyone from that night have one more crazy story to share about our travels. I will always be the guy who got naked in front of the entire hostel for most of them and well yeah… I will never forget NAKED NIGHT even though I don’t remember much of it.
A few days later we were at the market and I took a look at the bottles of Rum we had been drinking and discovered some shocking details. We had been drinking the cheapest shit that is not RUM but RHUM and that was also 80% PROOF. I was in shock… I couldn’t believe it. I told them we could have fucking died… we each had over a bottle of this within a few hours. The crazy thing is it doesn’t even fucking taste that strong. Anywho after NAKED NIGHT though I am now scared to get drunk again and since then I haven’t. You would think I’d learned my lesson from drinking cheap Rum in Caye Caulker & also waking up naked, but nope.
I feel like what I did is one of the craziest things anyone has ever done at a hostel. So now I’d like to hear from you what’s the craziest thing you’ve done or seen at a hostel? Oh and sex in the dorm doesn’t count everyone does that & sees that. It’s not everyday though someone gets naked infront of the entire hostel… or is it?
