Here at Base we meet some pretty amazing backpackers from across the globe! Each of us are also extremely good looking and don't mind a drink or two at the bar after work. So as you can imagine - we get to hear some pretty cheesy pick up lines! Fair warning some of these travel pick up lines may be punny but they may not be funny in the traditional sense. As with any traditional pick up lines these are likely to elicit a groan rather than a belly laugh, so use them at your peril. We've also included some classics as well as some Dutch, French, German, Italian and Swedish Pick Up lines to 'impress' some of the travellers you meet. 

We struggled to narrow our favourites down to a list of 59... but here it is! Lets begin with #1 - a STAFF FAVOURITE!
