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...

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...

Spooky and beautiful: Photos from Xela’s cemetery

When the hostel owner in Xela (Quetzaltenenago in full) told me that one of her favourite places in her home city is the local cemetery, I raised an eyebrow and got on with my day. But as I was in Xela for longer than I expected, I took the opportunity to visit the cemetery, and...

Xela day trip: Laguna Chicabal

Okay, I didn’t travel around Guatemala as much as I intended to (because I got homesick for Oaxaca) but of all the places I visited in the country, my definite favourite was Xela. Xela is a bit rough around the edges, but there is also tonnes of beauty in and around the city to explore....

Instagramming San Pedro La Laguna

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...

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

I can’t quite believe it but my wee blog just turned two years old. I can so clearly remember having my logo designed, fiddling around with WordPress, and writing my first few posts – and not having any idea what my future travel adventures would be and where I would be in the months and...

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...
