When Did You Fall in Love with Hostelling

valeninte's day hi usa hostels

childhood memories 
from far and wide 
that stayed with us and others 
and brought the word 
'hostel' to me and dreams 
of train trips to Europe and Japan
to my sisters. 

We threw parties
that threw open the gates
opening our fences 
joining our backyards, 
for a few nights
before returning to our 
day jobs.
