Boris' 15 minute business plan

Donald Trump

As a followup to “How to escape the corporate prison“, I will now explain to you one of the many ways you can make money with nothing more than a laptop and internet connection from anywhere in the world. Here’s all you need: an online store, a product(s) to sell and a good fulfillment company or a supplier that drop ships. What’s that you say, you don’t know anything about e-commerce, computers and web design? Don’t worry, you will know everything you need to know by the time you’re done reading this post.

First thing is first though. You need to find something to sell. You have three basic models to choose from (in order of time … [Read more]

The real way to learn languages

Characters

If you are like most American guys, you only know how to speak English and at that, really not very well, the truth be told. Your grammar is probably a disaster and you don’t even know it. I’m not getting on my high-horse on this one or anything as my mother is a proofreader with a whole wall of English reference books and she squirms when I speak as I make untold errors in form and structure. In fact, I’m not saying anything, I’m just sayin’. So, now that we agree we all suck at even our native tongue, we can now move onwards like Vikings to explore new lands and massacre the languages found in those places. That’s … [Read more]

Boris' Basic Spare Tire Disposal Plan

excercise

We here at Single Dude Travel feel that your health is of utmost importance, and being in good shape is a great way to feel good, separate yourself from the rest of the fat stupid Westerner tourists when you travel, meet more and better girls, and to live a longer, better, happier and more fulfilling life. But what if you picked up a little spare tire somewhere a long the way? Perhaps it was one too many beers in Germany, too many tamales in Mexico or even one too many pulneni chushki on your latest romp through the Balkans.

Whatever the case, now is the time.  You’ve booked your next trip and … [Read more]

Friday Poetry Corner: An Ode to Costa Rica

imgres-2

Ohhhhh, Costa Rica!
You Switzerland of the Latin World,
You regulator of the working girl.

You cheap if I wanteth you to be,
You great supplier of dentistry.

From your high mountain tops,
To your women’s boobs that almost pop.

Your Imperial Beer is not the best,
Luckily you serveth all the rest.

Your downtown San Jose is trashy,
Except for the casinos, sticketh to the Del Ray and Key Largo for flashy.

They are filled with beautiful girls,
That you may taketh up and give a whirl.

The cost is not too much to handle,
Less than a hundred dollars get’s you till the end of the candle.

Don't forget to fuck the fat ones!

Fat Chick Kick Line

Yeah, I said it. Don’t forget to fuck the fat ones! Sometimes in life you are presented with a situation in which you have a choice: Am I going to “lower” my standards and bang this heifer? Listen, I can’t tell you whether the answer is yes every time, but as long as the chick is under 200 pounds, has a nice face, good skin and not 5’2” with all of that weight, I say go for it. Why? Why the fuck not?

The most common situation where this happens is when you are out with some buddies, you run into some chicks and one of them is overweight. This happens a lot. Skinny chicks like to … [Read more]

The Single Dude's Rules for Money

Money Bags

We think a lot here at Single Dude Travel about how to spend and make money well.  Of course it’s good to have money.  Lots and lots of it if possible.  Making good money makes all of life easier because of all the other opportunities it opens for the single dude.  But there are a lot of common mistakes that guys make with money.  So without further ado here are some basic Single Dude Travel rules for money:

Rule 1:  Don’t waste your life in a corporate prison slaving away long hours to make someone else rich.

Rule 2:  Don’t be a walking wallet.  Avoid gold diggers and girls who take advantage of your money.

Guest Post: Jacques' Basic Rules Of Style

Sharp Dressed Man

Let’s start with the the number-one rule, fit, and then delve into some specifics.

Rule # 1 (the only rule that can’t be broken): Your clothes must fit!

Over-sized clothing has only ever been appropriate once: When Chris Webber and the rest of the Fab Five stormed to college basketball immortality (and later infamy) at Michigan in the early nineties, their voluminous, low-slung shorts ushered in the end of the “Tight Basketball Uniform Era.”  Good thing, too.  I mean, I enjoyed watching Larry Bird’s balls bounce up and down every time he stroked a three point shot, but generally speaking that shit had to stop.  For single dude travelers to be taken seriously though, baggy clothes are never appropriate.

Guadalajara, Mexico

gdl girls

Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, Mexico, is a great town.  It’s filled with what many Mexicans say is the most beautiful women in Mexico, has lots of great cultural options, and is also the world capital of tequila.  As Mexico’s second largest city (6 million), there is a lot to do there, but it till feels surprisingly chill and is fairly walkable.  It also has a little bit of an alternative vibe to it, with a large hippie, metalhead, gay, and student population.

Flights come in to Guadalajara’s airport (GDL).  Once you get there you can either take a taxi into town for around 100-150 pesos ($8-12) or a bus to the old bus station and … [Read more]

Reader Mail From Iraq!

iraqi women

iL Chiron writes in from Iraq:

Listen,

First off, this is the first time I have ever taken the time to email some random fan-mail type crap, so whoever reads this bullshit should feel honored.

I have to say singledudetravel.com is by far one of the better websites out now. You guys are hysterical, downright entertaining and ruthless! I enjoy reading the blogs and it certainly does help me take pleasure in the little “personal” time that I have here on deployment in Iraq. I feel like somewhat of a child praising dudes for doing shit “men” should already know and be doing in general.

In some of the blogs, you guys are right on the money regarding … [Read more]

Turn the goddamn music down, assholes!

music loud

Hey assholes!  I can’t hear shit in here!  This girl is really cute and keeps trying to tell me her name.  But I can’t hear a word she’s yelling in my ear.  Turn the goddamn music down, assholes!

One of the major obstacles we run into in our travels is the volume level of music in bars and clubss worldwide.  I just cannot understand why DJs and bands feel it necessary to blast their music at roughly the same volume as a Boeing 747 taking off down the runway.  These assholes really screw things up for everybody else, and they’re turning it up more and more every year.

Now I myself am a musician and play in bars from … [Read more]
