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.

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...
Budget diaries: One month in north Thailand and Isaan

Budget diaries: One month in north Thailand and Isaan

Here we go. My budget diaries saga continues as I attempt to travel on a very limited budget. As I expressed in my last budgeting post that covered the south of Thailand and Bangkok, I am piss poor at managing my finances, but I am making a concerted effort to be better with money and...

Photos: The ancient city of Sukhothai.

I am not a historian and I am not going to pretend that I can write about the city of Sukhothai in any kind of expert way, so I’m mostly going to keep this post to pretty pictures. In case you have no idea about Sukhothai, it’s a city in the lower north of Thailand...
What the bloody hell is there to do in Lampang anyway?

What the bloody hell is there to do in Lampang anyway?

And more to the point, where is it? Unless you have spent a significant amount of time in Thailand, Lampang probably isn’t a town that is on your radar. I’m not the biggest fan of long bus journeys and instead of doing a hellish overnighter from Chiang Mai into the Isaan region, I decided to...
My first visit to a gay sauna in Bangkok. And then my second.

My first visit to a gay sauna in Bangkok. And then my second.

One of the greatest things about travel is that it enables you to step outside of your normal patterns of behaviour and do things that you wouldn’t normally do. When everything is so different around you, when unfamiliarity rules the day, you have no choice but to act a little differently yourself. For some people,...

Photos: Chiang Mai Sunday Walking Street market

Before I arrived in Thailand, I considered visiting outdoor markets to be one of my favourite travel activities. Forty-nine days into being here and I can safely say that the country has managed to stamp out that love like an old codger stamps out a cigarette butt on the floor. Yes, Thailand has lots of...
So, I was massaged by a criminal in Chiang Mai.

So, I was massaged by a criminal in Chiang Mai.

When I arrived in Chiang Mai at the beginning of February, one month into being in Thailand, I still hadn’t had a Thai massage. Why did it take me so long? There are a couple of reasons. One – I would never pay for a massage at home as I find the idea of paying...
Go trekking around Chiang Mai - it's awesome.

Go trekking around Chiang Mai – it’s awesome.

Chiang Mai has a lot going for it. A bustling weekend walking street market, tonnes of great cafes and restaurants (with loads of vegetarian options for veggie types like me), temples aplenty, and a laid back atmosphere that makes spending time in the city in north Thailand a pleasure. But most people don’t come to...
Pai is a living hell, and here is the evidence.

Pai is a living hell, and here is the evidence.

So, last week I told you about my adventure escaping from the hippie farm, sneaking out without telling anyone in the early hours of the morning and hitching a ride to the nearest town – Pai. This was very much a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire.  Somewhere along the...
Feeling uncomfortable on my travels... so I did a runner.

Feeling uncomfortable on my travels… so I did a runner.

I didn’t have a post planned for today, but something happened in the last 24 hours that is worth sharing, and if I wait until tomorrow to write about it, I won’t have the same intensity of feeling about the event. Writing about it might also help me get my head around it, because truth...
My favourite temple, like, ever: Wat Chedi Luang

My favourite temple, like, ever: Wat Chedi Luang

If you’re a fan of traipsing around temples day in and day out, then Thailand is definitely the travel destination for you. I, however, am not. I can appreciate that many of the Thai temples are very beautiful, but for the most part, I’d sooner be having a glass of Chang beer and watching the...
My new favourite eating spot: The Chiang Mai Vegetarian Centre

My new favourite eating spot: The Chiang Mai Vegetarian Centre

Travelling as a vegetarian isn’t always the easiest thing. As I travel through Thailand, I have to be extra vigilant because some of the delicious looking things for sale on the side of the road might appear to be vegetarian at a first glance, but could very well contain ingredients such as fish sauce. I...
