Photo Friday: The Hostel Life

This is a special video edition of Photo Friday from Mehdy Ghannad who recently shared with us two perspectives on “What is the American Dream?” – that of his immigrant father and his own, which is The Hostel Life.

Having grown tired of the corporate life, Mehdy ventured out to follow his passion for travel. He backpacked through 35 countries making countless friends along the way. For him, backpacking is more than just traveling – it’s about taking chances.

“The Hostel Life is more than a backpacking adventure. We want to break down cultural stereotypes and show how you can see the world for next to nothing.”

His goal is also to shift pre-conceived notions of what it means to stay in hostels. He does this through discovering new destinations chosen by viewers and sharing them through webisodes. The first series takes viewers to Colombia.

Here is the pilot episode. We look forward to seeing what other destinations Mehdy brings us down the road!
