Curiosity got the better of me - watching a gay sex show in Bangkok.

Curiosity got the better of me – watching a gay sex show in Bangkok.

  Y’know how just a matter of days ago I wrote a post about the gay scene in Silom, Bangkok, but neglected to write about the seedier massage and sex show joints because in my own words “that business is not for me”. Well scrap that – just a few...

The Ultimate Guide to London’s Gay Neighbourhoods (Gaybourhoods)

London is a cracking city. It is also huge – so huge that when you first arrive it can be hard to find your place. If you are on your gay travel adventures and visiting London Town for the first time, you won’t want to waste any time in finding...
How should a homo pack for a long-term backpacking trip?

How should a homo pack for a long-term backpacking trip?

So this is my suitcase of accessories, brimming with homo must haves such as ties, bow-ties, belts, brooches, braces, cummerbunds and err… Mexican wrestling masks. Opening this treasure of bedazzled trinkets fills me with a sense of calm. Yes, I do have the bow-tie to match the colour of my...

Instagramming San Pedro La Laguna

Instagramming San Pedro La Laguna

Well, my seven weeks of Spanish lessons are done (thank goodness – language learning might be my least favourite thing in the world) and that means it is also time for me to move on from San Pedro La Laguna. I haven’t written a whole lot about San Pedro in my time here but that’s...
And this is why I will never haggle.

And this is why I will never haggle.

During my big trip last year, I didn’t really spend much time with other travellers simply because I found just too many differences between us that I couldn’t reconcile. Because of this, our time together just wasn’t enjoyable and I almost always wished that I was reading a book instead. While I was away hopping...

Solola: An authentic market experience in Guatemala

Three hours of Spanish per day, plus my normal work, plus my homework every night is seriously draining me. As a result, I just don’t have the energy to take many trips around Guatemala. So far, I have only ventured as far as a couple of market towns that aren’t particularly far away from San...

Happy birthday to me – my blog is two years old!

Back to basics in Guatemala

Back to basics in Guatemala

I have now found my way to my little bungalow and my language school in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala – hoorah! Before I arrived, the school owner did tell me via email that “the bungalow is basic”. No worries, I replied, I can live in a basic way. But being confronted with the basic...
It's okay to run away

It’s okay to run away

Image source. You know that tired old travel quote that is forever bandied around, “Not all those who wander are lost”? It has always wound me up. It suggests that feeling lost is not a legitimate part of the human experience and that it’s something unhealthy. But I have never felt that way, and yes,...

The 8 Greatest Cafes in Oaxaca, Mexico

The 8 Greatest Cafes in Oaxaca, Mexico

Mexico generally has more of a taco culture than a café culture. While I was living in Mexico City, I would experience sheer glee at the number of taco stands I would walk past on any street but felt sad that it didn’t have such an incredible café culture. In Oaxaca, where I am living...

15 Reasons to Visit the Coast of Oaxaca, Like, Now

I’m two weeks back from the coast of Oaxaca and my tan is peeling thick and fast. I look patchy and diseased but it’s all worth it because my ten days by the beach were nothing short of wonderful. I had beachside lunches and beers, I lounged around in the company of the nudey gays...
