Make friends with door openers

The Door Man

Make friends with door openers, both literal and figurative. Someone doesn’t need to be rich, famous or good looking to be important to your success. The door man at the club is a great example of a guy with a minimum wage job that can do a lot for you. Know and greet them by first name. There is nothing like the impression given when you rock up to the hottest club in town with a date and the doorman greets you by name and asks if you would like your usual table.

Don’t get me wrong, you should always be nice but some people you should really go out of your way … [Read more]

Patience is a Virtue

Patience

Dude, this girl is perfect. Smart, hot, cool, fun, legs for miles, perfect boobs, great job, super nice, the whole package. I see why we got on a plane and came all the way out here to Riga, just to meet a girl like her. We really hit it off when we met at the coffee shop too, and after we sat and talked for hours I knew she was exactly the kind of girl that fit my definition of perfect. I’m totally in love right now. But then I asked if she wanted to meet me for drinks this weekend and she said what many would consider the worst four … [Read more]

The Return Trip

Globe

One of the more important principles we have managed to stumble across in our years of single dude travel is that of the return trip vacation.  It’s great to go spend a week in Kuala Lumpur sampling the smorgasbord of Asian delicacies both culinary and feminine, but we find the real payoff comes some months later when we return for another visit.

The first trip is all about building a foundation.  My basic strategy is to meet as many people as possible and make as many connections as possible.  Obviously when we get the opportunity to take some super hot Bulgarian Chalga sluts back to the apartment we jump on it, but generally speaking the average … [Read more]

Ways to make money abroad

So you finally escaped the corporate prison and moved abroad but your 15-minute business plan isn’t quite firing on all the cylinders yet and you need to make some extra cash. No problem! Besides the luxury lifestyle at a budget price and all the beautiful women you’re enjoying, simply speaking fluent English with no discernible accent affords you special skill that opens up a lot of interesting potential side jobs for you in most Single Dude Travel recommended destinations.

1. Teaching English PROS: Flexible hours, stable consistent work, may offer assistance with housing and/or visa and work permit. CONS: Not usually very high paying (although it can be if you … [Read more]

Up Yours, Rebecca Watson!

I Hate You With My Vagina

Since we at Single Dude Travel started this blog we have been exposed to the so-called “blogosphere” and it’s been very interesting that this little world really does have a whole life of its own.  It’s amazing the number of geniuses, retards, cool dudes, fake hot chicks, fake hot chick ass-kissers, real hot chick ass-kissers, douchebags, hipsters and assholes are out there.  Boris recently called my attention to an incident that started in real life and has quickly become a heated discussion in the blog pseudoreality.  Many people have weighed in on it already but I feel compelled to add my two cents.

There is this chick named Rebecca Watson who … [Read more]

Gold and other investments for the Single Dude

Gold Coins

The world financial system today is in enormous trouble.  Greece is just the tip of the iceberg.  Next: Italy, Ireland, Portugal and Spain (not necessarily in that order).  The Greek train wreck will be the first domino to fall in what will become a worldwide crisis that has the potential to make 2008 look like the common cold when compared to the Ebola virus. Time to cover your asses, dudes.

I didn’t want to give investment advice but Charlie talked me into it. You might as well get it here if you aren’t going to get it somewhere else. I imagine that many of our readers are not much into the … [Read more]

Avoiding Bar Scams

Scam

“Wow, this bar is fun! There’s hot chicks everywhere, the dance floor is pumping, and the team is just killing tonight. Bartender, get these girls some drinks! Yeah, whatever they want. I’ll have some more vodka, sure, just put it on my tab. Dude, these chicks are ready to go, let’s invite them back to the apartment. Bartender!”

“Check please!”

“What?!?”

“Five hundred dollars? You have got to be kidding me. I’m not paying that, that’s ridiculous.

“Wait, where did all those mafia douchebags come from? Uh oh. This is getting ugly. OK, OK, we’ll pay. Just let me go to the ATM. What?”

“You’re all going to walk there with me?”

“Fuuuuck!”

And that’s how it goes, … [Read more]

Guest Post: (Hot) Girls and Hostels

Hostel pic

Who hasn’t thought about hooking up with a sexy backpacker whilst staying in a hostel?  With vacation-sex on the brain, high blood-alcohol-levels and lost inhibitions, one would think that even Dick Cheney could get laid, if his alien penis was not floating in a jar of formaldehyde at Area 51.  Rarely are logistics to hook up with foreigners as good as they are in hostels. But who are these girls that frequent these dream-factories? And really how many of them are hot?

At 22, armed with high libido and a Working Holiday Visa for the Netherlands, I snagged my dream job at a hostel in Amsterdam called The Flying Pig, one of the best jobs I ever had. … [Read more]

The Single Dudes Guide to Couchsurfing, It's Not Just for Dirty Hippies

Couch Surfing

If you’re not familiar with CouchSurfing.com, head on over to their site and check it out. Couch Surfing is an invaluable single dude travel tool.

Couch Surfing was founded around the idea that if a bunch of people that are willing to let friends crash on each others couches got together and formed a loose social network, it would be possible to travel nearly for free. At least accommodation could be free which is often the most expensive part. If you want or need to travel on a shoestring budget, Couch Surfing is for you.

Perhaps though, your travel budget isn’t your problem and you feel a little bit too grown up to be running around crashing on … [Read more]
