Manuel and Charlie's Halloween Weekend in the USA

Frankenstein's Monster

There have only been two times in my life that I’ve gotten really fucked up physically. One time was in South America and the other time was outside of Pittsburgh. This is a story of what happens when we try to have a party in the US – shit just goes entirely off the rails for no fucking reason. Charlie and I were in a small town for professional reasons and figured we might as well party it up a bit while we were there. I had a hot little Spanish girlfriend in town visiting me for a while also. She’s quite a story in her own right but one for another time.

In any event I told my … [Read more]

Single Dude Radio Episode 5: We Love Eastern European Chicks

Single Dude Radio

In this episode Charlie and Boris take a break in Manila from reporting on Southeast Asia and discuss one of the best places on Earth for the single dude, Eastern Europe. We tried to keep it positive but we could help ourselves from comparing the fantastic Eastern European women to completely uncompetitive Western chicks.

Tangential topics discussed included:

The Single Dude’s Guide to Manila Philippines: The Cons

Eastern Europe, now do you see?

Up yours Rebecca Watson!

Charlie's First IRA

My mental image of what's happening to the USA

When I was younger I used to believe more of what other people told me. One thing was what the typical money managers say to regular dudes like us (meaning people that aren’t millionaires). “Make regular scheduled contributions to mutual funds that mirror the broad market, buy stock in blue chip companies, buy and hold, and be patient. This investment will work out for you in the long run and you’ll be financially secure when you retire (At 65).”

What bullshit.

Those guys don’t give a shit about us. We’re minnows. Our purpose in the mind of those Wall Street BBDs (business-banker douchebags) is as food, like the 2 1/2 tons of plankton a … [Read more]

Help Wanted for Team Charlie

help-wanted positions

I’ve written frequently before about my love of the company of high quality women. I am at heart a womanizer. But sometimes I start to think that I’ve gotten a little too good at it. It’s hard to stop the constant picking up of beautiful friendly exotic women, and sometimes I bite off more than I can chew. Believe it or not there is such thing as having too many girlfriends! It’s so easy go on automatic pilot when traveling and I often just can’t stop myself from picking up new potential future ex-wives when I go out and there’s so many available options, and I meet more women these days than I have time to see.

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]

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]

Charlie & Boris Summer Update Volume 2

Bulgarian Fashion Show

Since we’ve been kind of lazy about the summer updates I guess it’s time for a quick recap of the last week. Charlie has been called away to Southeast Asia due to an urgent business matter while I opted to hang back in Bulgaria for another couple of weeks. I believe he is currently cavorting around KL but I’m not sure. I will likely join him later but for the time being I’m having way too much fun here. If you’ve been following us on Facebook you have a rough idea of what we’ve been up to. Mainly it has involved bars, clubs, fashion shows … [Read more]

Obichem te Bulgaria!

Bulgarian Girls

Just as I felt the need to proclaim my undying love for Mexico, I too feel the need to make a similar proclamation of my amorous feelings toward the wonderful Republic of Bulgaria. It’s taken me a lot of world travel to truly appreciate how much this small country has to offer in one neat little package. I mean really, the only drawbacks of Bulgaria are a decrepit infrastructure ravaged by communism and the mafia douchebag infestation which is currently raging much as it is everywhere else in Eastern Europe. But really besides some holes in the road and the poser gangsters, there really aren’t any significant drawbacks to Bulgaria.

Let’s talk about all the … [Read more]

Charlie & Boris Summer Update Volume 1

Green Shots

We are nursing the kind of hangovers that would make Amy Winehouse cringe. We had a hell of a time and a hell of a 5 day bender. We arrived in Sofia last week at which point we wasted no time jumping straight into an all night drinking session culminating in an orgy of tequila shots at Briliantin (one of our favorites). If you have been following us on Facebook you know that we then headed directly to Sozopol to attend Sozopol Fest for the Juli Sutrin (July Morning) Party. It was an outstanding weekend at bargain basement prices like only Bulgaria can provide.
