Your fault for not wearing earplugs. Believe it or not, people don't snore on purpose. It's to be expected while sleeping near mulitple people you don't know.
I've actually had campus security knock on my door because someone called them due to my snoring. Or maybe I was screaming in my sleep or something. The people that knocked didn't seem to sure of what to expect. Then laughed when they'd realised they had woken me up.

I've had so many loud snorers in dorms and even as a roommate for three months and it never bothered me
The worst travel feels for me always set in a week or two after I return home:

> you're back in the same shitty routine you just had so much fun being away from
> all of your new friends are on the other side of the world
> there's nothing you want more than to book a new plane ticket to a destination, be it somewhere you've been or somewhere you'd still like to go
> tfw can't hitchhike in the US
> tfw no more momos and Indian street food
> tfw no more cool Serbian clubs to go to
> tfw no more drinking at German universities
> tfw you'd run through the university library you're typing this in naked for the chance to get teleported somewhere different

Well unfortunately that's the risk of staying in large dorm rooms. You either have to stump up for something a bit more private or simply learn to DWI. I wear a nose clip out of consideration for other people when I'm in a hostel but just like the earplugs, sometimes they just don't make an awful lot of difference.
Anyone else get completely spastic legs when trying to sleep on planes?
Fuckers just start wiggin' out when im trying to sleep

If you're fat and you sleep on your back you're a cunt.
Sleep in the recovery position and you won't snore. Sure you might roll over but if you're a problem sleep with your back against the wall.
As someone who snores fairly often and occasionally stays in hostels, I hate hate HATE the idea of me keeping people awake at night. I try to stay in private rooms or hotels as often as I can but most of the time I simply cannot afford it. I try to avoid some of the things that make me snore such as not getting drunk and sleeping on my side but sometimes it just happens.
But I'm not going to not travel just because it annoys people. If that makes me a cunt or an arsehole (which it probably does) then I'll just have to deal with it. Just like >>968136 will have to deal with my snoring if he ever end up in the same room as me. lol.
this so fucking much. The anxiety is always so bad that I can never sleep, not even after two fucking sleeping pills and two glasses of wine. Got another 10 hour flight coming up this year, at which point I am hopefully going to be awake for 30+ hours so maybe I might be able to fall asleep this time
What's strange to me is that I've always - ALWAYS - been afraid of having a suicidal pilot intentionally crash a flight. The whole Germanwings scenario didn't even come as much of a shock to me, because that's my fear nearly every time I get onto an airplane.
It's just not considered as acceptable or normal here, even if you're a young person trying to have an adventure. People think of hitchhikers as marauding psychopaths, escaped convicts, and bums. It doesn't help that I've only seen a handful of hitchhikers in the last ten years, and all of them have had the "I don't have a job and will probably kill you and steal your car" look, either.
I don't mind snoring but at one hostel we stayed at, there was this really big guy and he'd snore so loud it sounded like he was dying. It was loud enough that you could no longer hear the traffic outside, it even blotted out the snoring of others. I realise he couldn't help it but fuck me, I was using attenuating ear plugs (if I remember, they're -20db) and I could still hear him.
>Anyone else get completely spastic legs when trying to sleep on planes?
Yeah, I have a knee injury from skiing. It gives me trouble when I have to sleep with it bent for a long time. Means I can't really curl up in a small bed or airplane seat or sleeper bus. Doesn't help that I'm >6'
