    I basically want to travel through Eastern Europe by inter-railing, and stay in hostels. I am 27 next year in May, when do you become too old to do that sort of thing?

    Surely this sort of thing depends on your own mindset unless you care what others think?

    If you want to do it, then do it.

    I did not have enough money to do it when younger, now I just want to do it big.

    My friend went and he met people in their 50s who were doing backpacking too. I guess you're never too old to travel.

    Who actually cares what other people think?? It would be a bit ridiculous if a 30+ year old was desperate to travel yet sat at home because of being self conscious of their age.
    When I was in a hostel in Shanghai, there was a 50 year old Romanian women staying there! On her own!! If she can do that then I'm sure you can do that at 27 😊😊

    Hey - you may meet me then - I am 58 but feel 19, I will be backpacking and inter-railing and ( probably not) staying in hostels. I am rediscovering my youth. I did inter-railing as a student - twice - and it was great.
