How's it goin'? David here - a full time homosexual type who's a bit keen on travel. On December 31st 2012, I flew to Bangkok to kick off a massive travel adventure. Expect posts about hot locals, dodgy gay bars, and how the humidity is messin' with my hair.

So, I climbed a volcano in Mexico

So, I climbed a volcano in Mexico

When you think about Mexico, you are probably not thinking of a country that is geared up for adventure tourism. Mexico is known for its great beaches and delicious food, but if you are after a long hike or a climbing experience, this country probably isn’t the first that springs to mind. But anybody who...
Exploring the gay beaches of Mexico

Exploring the gay beaches of Mexico

The next time that you group your friends together for a gaycation, there is only one place that you should visit and that place is Mexico. As well as finding yourself in the land of delicious tacos, ridiculously cheap beer, and hot Latins, you will also have the opportunity to spend time on the gay-gay-gay...
Mexico City's pulque revolution

Mexico City’s pulque revolution

WTF is pulque? – I hear you ask. Well, pulque is a traditional Mexican alcoholic drink that resembles fruit flavoured semen in both taste and texture. Wait, come back. It’s actually really nice, and its popularity is on the rise here in Mexico City. It is made from the agave plant, which is exactly the...
A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

No doubt about it – Mexico City is a foodie paradise. But it’s not all tacos, gringas, and tamales. Mexicans also love their sugar, and can often be found shoving sweets, ice cream, popcorn, cakes, churros, and pastries into their mouths. I don’t even have much of a sweet tooth, but here in Mexico City...

Photos: Market Day in Zaachila, Oaxaca

If you are visiting Oaxaca, it imperative that you do not limit your trip to the city of Oaxaca itself. One of my favourite things to do when visiting this part of Mexico is to visit the outlying towns and villages on their market days. There are a number of amazing small towns not far...
How I feel when I stay in a luxury hotel

How I feel when I stay in a luxury hotel

On the rare occasion that I stay in a 5 star hotel (never with my own money, I hasten to add), I feel a strange mixture of things that contradict each other. On the one hand, I definitely enjoy the luxury. Taking a bubble bath in a huge tub, putting on a fluffy dressing gown,...
Staying in Cancun: A comparison of 3 hostels

Staying in Cancun: A comparison of 3 hostels

For somebody who doesn’t like the beach, I sure have been finding myself in Cancun a lot. Why so? Because international connections from Cancun are cheaper than from other parts of the country. In October 2013, I flew from Cancun to London, in December I flew from London to Cancun, and just earlier this month...
The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

When I was on my backpacking trip last year, I ate out for pretty much every meal. When you stay in a guesthouse or hotel, there is usually not too much opportunity for cooking, and in southeast Asia it was cheaper to eat food from the street anyway. Now that I am living in Mexico,...
Helau! Experiencing Karneval in Dusseldorf

Helau! Experiencing Karneval in Dusseldorf

Carnival, Carnaval, or Karneval – however you choose to write it – is big news in Dusseldorf. But being completely honest, I knew absolutely nothing about Karneval celebrations, or that they even existed, until I visited Dusseldorf earlier in the month. But, always up for a street party, I was keen to learn all about...
Immermannstrasse: A taste of Japan in Dusseldorf

Immermannstrasse: A taste of Japan in Dusseldorf

When you visit Dusseldorf, slurping down ramen noodles is probably not at the top of your agenda. In fact, I found myself doing this on three separate occasions on my recent visit courtesy of airberlin and Visit Dusseldorf. Why so? Because the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia is home to a huge number of Japanese people...
Mexico City. It’s crazy but not that crazy.

Mexico City. It’s crazy but not that crazy.

If you have never visited Mexico City (or Distrito Federal as we call it here), what are your ideas about the Mexican capital? I’m sure that you are thinking that it is bursting with people, that it is difficult to walk on the street, that it’s impossible to get anywhere because of the traffic, that...
Hierve El Agua:  Heart stopping amazingness in Oaxaca

Hierve El Agua: Heart stopping amazingness in Oaxaca

At the end of January, I was super fortunate to be able to return to one of my favourite places in the whole world, Oaxaca, after first visiting in 2010. Oaxaca is a magnificent place. The streets are full of magic – you can smell Mexican hot chocolate on the street corners, see Zapotec women...
