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]

Doing your homework and being a good tourist

Tourists

When you’re traveling you want to avoid being a douchebag, an asshole, a DAFF, or just the typical Ugly American (or Brit, or whatever) Tourist.  It’s just not cool and six foot blonde Russian chicks are not turned on at all by Dumb Western Tourist Guy (DWTG).  So before you travel do a little homework about your target destination. Doing your homework on a destination helps differentiate you from the typical douchebag tourist and it makes you into someone that the locals find cool, interesting and worthy of getting to know. People from smaller countries are usually flattered when others take time to learn about their homeland, so do it, it gives you a great … [Read more]

The Single Dude's Guide to Kiev, Ukraine

Maidan Nezalezhnosti Kiev

Kiev, Ukraine, a major city right in the heart of Eastern Europe. It’s certainly a place worth visiting at least once but I’m going to have to surprise even myself here and give it a mixed review. I’ve only visited Kiev twice, once recently and once many years ago. I was surprised to find the women less beautiful than I remembered and the city itself more beautiful. If you haven’t been to Eastern Europe yet you may not know that many Eastern Europe cities are huge concrete wastelands of architectural diarrhea courtesy of the communist era. There are exceptions though such as Prague, Riga, Zagreb and to some degree definitely Kiev.

Let’s talk about the other major … [Read more]

The Single Dude's Guide to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Petronas Towers

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, known locally simply as “KL”, is a pretty strange place to think of for single dude travel. It’s definitely a weird place. It’s Asia, it’s infernally hot and humid all the time, it’s Muslim, and the people here are from a totally different part of the gene pool. If you come here expecting business as usual you’ll be in for a rude awakening, but if you just go with the flow it’s possible to have a lot of fun here.

First thing you need to keep in mind in KL is that Malaysia is a Muslim country. That is the source of a lot of the cultural issues and drawbacks of the place. 70% of the Malaysian … [Read more]

The Burkha Disgrace

Sexy Burka

Walking down the street in Kuala Lumpur is always an entertaining experience.  People from all over the world are here, from super hot Chinese daddy’s girls in miniskirts and high heels, to Indian truck drivers, to super overly made-up Iranian girls with fake boobs, drunk Australian DAFFs, Ghanaian kids kicking a soccer ball, and of course semi-retarded Malays loafing around everywhere.

But the thing that was the most shocking for me when I came to Malaysia for the first time five years ago were the Saudis.  There’s a lot of oil business that gets done here in KL, so there’s a bunch of Saudis working here and seeing them on the street is really weird.  First you … [Read more]

The Single Dude's Guide to Amsterdam

dutch girls

Alert:  the Dutch government is attempting to close access to Dutch coffeeshops to tourists by the end of 2011 which is a major blow to Amsterdam’s single dude travel destination status.  Monitor the situation before you visit.  More on this here.

Amsterdam is my favorite city in the world.  It has pretty much everything I like.  Great food, great legal drugs, nice hot chicks, great art and music, great party, and a tolerant, cool, easy to get along with local population make Amsterdam a great location for single dude travel as long as a super low priced vacation isn’t a major need.

Amsterdam is not cheap.  Especially if you’re an American traveler, with the strength of … [Read more]

Sunny Beach, the Cancun of Bulgaria

cacao beach

Bulgaria’s most popular tourist destination for foreigners is without a doubt Sunny Beach.  Located on the Black Sea an hour from Burgas, it’s a hell of a place.  Take one part underworld circus, one part Disney World and one part Cancun, garnish with tons of super hot Bulgarian party chicks, stir, and serve. In small doses if you know what you’re doing you can really have a blast but if you show up unprepared you will not have a successful trip and run the risk of disaster.  The place is over-run with DAFFs, crooked taxi drivers, drunk rich German kids celebrating their high school graduations, mafia douchebags and lots of other undesirables looking to … [Read more]

Where to stay in Eastern Europe

The Blond Parade in Riga May 2010

Welcome to Eastern Europe, where the pivo is cheap, the women are krasiva and people are experts at taking 3 hours to drink an espresso.  The first practical lesson for you in this paradise is easy:  Don’t get a hotel. Stay in an apartment! You can rent an apartment for the same price or less than a hotel in virtually any Eastern European city. All you have to do is Google “apartment rental [insert city of your choice]” and start shopping.

Lesson One: Rent an apartment when you stay in Eastern Europe, and get an apartment near the center of town.

Now let’s talk about the reasons why you want an apartment over a hotel besides cost (short … [Read more]

Intro to Bulgaria

bg 2

Ah, Bulgaria.  A great single dude travel destination.  If you’re on a budget and you don’t want to venture too far off the beaten path Bulgaria is a excellent destination.  It’s not too far away, cheap, beautiful, fun, has 24 hour, 7 day a week full on partying and lots of super hot girls who still carry genes from the alien race that came over on a spaceship and populated the area with alien nymphomaniacs thousands of years ago.  We call them the “Master Race.”

There is no point repeating what others have put out there already, so if you want to know stuff about Bulgaria’s population, size, history, etc check out the CIA World Fact Book, the State … [Read more]

Be a Contrarian not a “Peacock”

Goth

So there have been a lot of guys writing books and giving seminars who call themselves “Pick Up Artists” the last ten years or so.  If you haven’t read any “pickup books” by these so-called “pickup artists” (PUAs) this article may not make a lot of sense to you and may want to familiarize yourself with some of the suggested reading at the bottom of the article.  We certainly have read plenty of these books but don’t identify ourselves, nor want to be identified as PUAs in any way.  We find those guys tend to focus on only the act of meeting a girl for the first time in some bar and fooling her into being interested.  They … [Read more]
