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. Currently in Mexico.

Luang Prabang’s #1 attraction: Kuang Si Waterfalls

Luang Prabang’s #1 attraction: Kuang Si Waterfalls

Without a shadow of a doubt, the most popular and impressive attraction in Luang Prabang is Kuang Si Falls. During the six weeks that I spent in Luang Prabang, the only day that a tuk tuk driver didn’t ask if I wanted to go to the waterfalls was the day that I was bed ridden...
The Lao New Year Parade in Luang Prabang

The Lao New Year Parade in Luang Prabang

I recently told you about all of the getting wet-ness New Year celebrations in the streets of Luang Prabang, but aside from all of the water guns and buckets of water, there is one major event in the town that draws a massive crowd of locals and tourists every year, and that’s the Lao New...
Celebrating Lao New Year by getting really really wet

Celebrating Lao New Year by getting really really wet

Spending Lao New Year in Luang Prabang is some of the best fun I have ever had in my life – no exaggeration. For a number of days, I’ve been walking around in a drunken daze, squirting people with water, being doused with buckets of water myself, wishing ‘Sabaidee Pi Mai!’ to everybody on the...
How gay is Laos? Not very

How gay is Laos? Not very

I feel as though I need to make a wee apology to my readers, as this blog has been spectacularly un-gay of late, particularly during my time in Laos. When I was in Bangkok at the beginning of the year, there was a sprawling and diverse gay scene for me to explore, but since then...

Photos: A Nong Khiaw sunset

What kind of horrendous travel blogging cliché have I become? A set of sunset photos? I know, I know. But I need to suck it up and embrace that part of me that is blown away by a perfect sunset no matter how corny it is. So, last weekend I took a side trip from...
Budget diaries: One month in Laos

Budget diaries: One month in Laos

At home in London, I am more than a little bit shit at keeping on top of my finances. But I knew before strapping on my backpack and setting off for Asia, that I would have to be a little more responsible with my spending in order to give this backpacking thing a decent shot....
5 bloody brilliant wifi spots in Luang Prabang.

5 bloody brilliant wifi spots in Luang Prabang.

I wish that it wasn’t the case, but because I work at the same time as I travel, I am a slave to that digital mistress – wifi. To get my work done, I pretty have much have to stay in guesthouses that have wifi, but staying in your room all day is no fun,...
Stuff you can buy at Luang Prabang's awesome night market.

Stuff you can buy at Luang Prabang’s awesome night market.

As I wander across south-east Asia, I am experiencing a love/hate relationship with the all pervasive night markets, which seem to exist in every village, town and city. In theory, market culture is awesome – it brings people from the community together, locals and tourists eat and shop side by side, and it allows people...

Photos: The sassy monks of Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang is a town that is chock-full of temples. It’s impossible to walk for five minutes without stumbling upon some grand feat of Lao Buddhist architecture. While I may not be the hugest fan of visiting temples, it’s still nice to see so many of them dotted around the streets of Luang Prabang, in...
10 reasons to visit the 4000 islands in Laos.

10 reasons to visit the 4000 islands in Laos.

Writing this blog post about the 4000 islands, I’m sat in one of those Vang Vieng restaurants on the riverside that play episodes of Friends on an endless loop, and bemoaning the fact that I am no longer on Don Dhet, the most popular island, and one of 4000, that sits within the Mekong river...
Having a gay old time in Vientiane.

Having a gay old time in Vientiane.

Look, nobody goes to Laos specifically for the gay culture. Not even me. The capital city, Vientiane, is a small, sleepy place that has a total population of around 210,000. This is no bustling Asian capital like Bangkok or Taipei that can cater to every homo under the sun. So, when I turned up in...
