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...
So, I went on a date in a Kuala Lumpur gay sauna

So, I went on a date in a Kuala Lumpur gay sauna

I don’t write much about my dating life on here, essentially because I’m in the top five most awful people at dating – of all time. And in spite of all my love of gay bars and shimmying to Girls Aloud in the club, I’m not so much of a...
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)

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 a gay tourist/traveller/nomad type visiting London Town for the first time, you won’t want to waste any time in finding the right...
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...

What did I get up to in Cancun?

What did I get up to in Cancun?

So, you know by now that I am living in Mexico City. Unfortunately, taking a flight from the UK to Mexico City is not so cheap. BUT, taking flight from the UK to Cancun is hella cheap. Like, I actually can’t believe the prices kinda cheap. My ticket from the UK to Cancun was £195....
What should you buy a backpacker for Christmas?

What should you buy a backpacker for Christmas?

The festive season is upon us, and there is little time for Christmas shopping left. If you need to find the perfect present for a backpacker, it is not an understatement to say that this can be a difficult task. Backpackers tend to live in a very simple way, with just the bag on their...
So, I live in Mexico City now

So, I live in Mexico City now

The last couple of months have been supremely weird for me. After ten months of travel across seven different countries, I felt the pangs of homesickness desperately. I love travelling but all of the people I love are at home in London. I just wanted to see my family and friends, so I booked myself...
The best hostel in Bangkok: Mile Map

The best hostel in Bangkok: Mile Map

You know how I like to go on about hating hostels so much, complaining about people having sex in the dorm room, and people looking at me like I’m an alien for going to bed at 10pm? Well, the truth is that I haven’t hated absolutely every hostel I have stayed in, and there was...
My 3 favourite destinations for eating on the cheap

My 3 favourite destinations for eating on the cheap

Throughout my trip, there were times when even I was astounded by how little I was spending despite doing the whole backpacker thing for months and months.  When I am away from home on a backpacking adventure, I rarely cook. It just doesn’t make sense because the food is generally amazing when you are on...
The 5 coolest things to see and do in Guadalajara

The 5 coolest things to see and do in Guadalajara

Guadalajara is a super cool city and in my opinion it warrants far more visitors. It doesn’t seem to be massively on the tourist trail of Mexico even though it is the country’s second largest city and has huge amounts going on, from historical sights to public parks, galleries to gay nightlife. Here are my...
Your guide to killing time at the airport

Your guide to killing time at the airport

While travelling is an activity filled with joy and adventure, spending time at the airport is more often than not a hellish experience. Unfortunately for most of us, airports are a necessary part of the travel experience that we have to put up with. As a budget traveller, I find myself spending time at the...
Guanajuato. It's just pretty, like.

Guanajuato. It’s just pretty, like.

Central Mexico is heaving with stunning towns and cities, each with its own style of architecture, each with its own culture and personality. In my opinion, there is none more impressive than Guanajuato, the state capital of err, Guanajuato. The small city is also steeped in history and culture, so whether you are interested in...
I had my bag snatched in Guanajuato

I had my bag snatched in Guanajuato

Okay, it’s not quite as bad as it sounds.  Two guys attempted to snatch my bag and failed, and not long after I gave you all of that big talk about not being concerned about my safety in Mexico. I figured that as long as I was moderately sensible, as I usually am, that I...
5 things I love about Puerto Vallarta

5 things I love about Puerto Vallarta

I own up to the fact that I am a pessimist at heart – I’m a Debbie Downer, a Negative Nelly. I can’t help it, it’s the way that I’m hardwired. And I am perfectly content on my crusade of miserablism. But I don’t want my gloomy attitude to get in the way of recognizing...
24 hours in Puerto Vallarta

24 hours in Puerto Vallarta

The regular way of writing a post about a travel destination is to talk about your highlights, to let people know the best places to go, to inform them of your secret insider information, or to tell a horrifying story about a place and why they shouldn’t visit it. Often the point of a narrative...
Guadalajara’s most impressive attraction: The Hospicio Cabanas

Guadalajara’s most impressive attraction: The Hospicio Cabanas

Guadalajara is not a city that seems to be on any “must visit” lists. If you are thinking of travelling to Mexico, then you will probably be swayed by the traditional charm of Oaxaca or the beaches of Cancun.  But Guadalajara has buckets of charm – well kept plazas where you can hear mariachi music,...
