The Year in Review 2010

2010 has been a blast!

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my readers and wish you guys a happy new year!

It just seems like every year just keeps getting better and better. Today I look back at an amazing 2010 and give you guys a taste of what’s in store for 2011!

2010 in review


After counting down the New year in London, I packed up my winter wear and took an 11-day trip to a snowy Eastern Europe. The  trip was spread out over Minsk, Belarus (-25c) and Kiev and Lviv, Ukraine. It  gave me an opportunity to practice my Russian and see a Europe that few people see.

An overenthusiastic first night on the sauce in Kaunas, Lithuania caused me to miss my flight to Minsk next morning, forcing my hungover ass to get a new flight from Riga. A rocky start, but things got better by the day.

Mayhem in Minsk

Minsk rocked. I couch surfed, met loads of cool people and attended some crazy parties.

I then cruised down to Kiev and fell for the city instantly. The girls  blew me away! The city was the second city ever (Riga being the other) to be awarded 5/5 in terms of girl quality. I was privileged to capture the flag, and in the process slay a vampire.

Ukraine becomes my new favourite country in Europe. I nearly set up a hostel.


I took a trip over to visit my mate in Seoul, South Korea. He showed me a fantastic time and bought me to some really cool hang outs, giving me some sterling recommendations for nightlife on the city guide. The Korean chicks weren’t biting but it turns out English teachers are super easy! Without much effort I managed to get taken home 2 out 4 nights there, once by an America and once by a Newfy, adding a Canadian flag to the collection.

Angeles nights..

I then flew from Seoul to return to my beloved Philippines. I spent my time there exploring Luzon, drinking and screwing like a mad man. My first night in Manila was spent with an exceptional beauty.

One night in Olongapo I was drugged, raped and robbed by some bitch, ah well. It wasn’t all bad, I spent a few days living in the apartment of a real cutie after that. She was heartbroken when I left, but she recently told she got engaged.  I wonder if her American Navy fiancée knows I was banging her while he was on tour…  Mwahahaha!

My last day in Philly was spent celebrating an insane St.Patrick’s Day in Angeles city. I finished the holiday off with a stint in one my most frequented cities, Kuala Lumpur.

Man I miss the Philippines!


I start this blog! Naughty Nomad is born.

My hits get of to a good start with the release of my Ladyboy Survival guide.

Naughty Nomad coins the term  “Shoring” and it spreads like wildfire through forums and blogs across the internet.

May & June

After some side-trips to London and Warsaw, I realise it’s my final year in university, so I should probably stop fucking off to other countries and take my degree seriously.  I yearn for Abroad…

The blog starts to raise a few eyebrows as I release my most controversial post – By the way, I’ve HIV.

July & August

I stay at home for the Irish summer, picking up my French flag in the process.

I try an experiment and become celibate for 28 days.

My hits skyrocket when I document the Last 10 Great Adventures.


The epic and ridiculous Siege of the Adriatic take places in the Balkans. 4 new flags (Aussie, Macedonian, Israeli & Welsh) are captured and many women are slain by my fellow crew members.  If you haven’t read about the Siege do so now. It basically entailed me and three friends spending 24 nights in a row dressed as Mexican Pirates, on a non-stop party through Eastern Europe.


I produce my Big Balkan breakdown after the trip.


I come home revitalised and start dating like crazy. In the process I get my Cameroon and Portuguese flags.

Pirate luv


The Siege of Malta is staged, the flag is captured and my backpack is put away until the new year.


Most of my courting and sexual exploits involve eager nubile black chicks. They’re just too easy.

After booking some plane tickets, I prepare for my first two excursions in the new year.

2010 Stats:

Total Countries visited: 17

New Countries visited:9

New Flags Captured: 10

Not a bad year! But 2011 is going to out do 2010 by a mile…

2011 – holy shit.

Jan 27th  – I fly solo to the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean. Over a period of two weeks I will be getting under the skin of the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Soon I’ll be up to my eyes in sexy chicas. Get jealous!

March 26th – I’m going back to Africa! I’m on a one-way to the Gambia in West Africa. T’will be madness of the highest degree over 12 countries!

October  – If I come back from Africa alive, I’m visiting the gulf. I think the Middle East needs a wake up call, don’t you?

Get ready guys, it’s going to a good one!

    Thats exactly the same question I was gonna ask… What the hell do you do to get enough money for all those trips around the world? It’s like the answer I’ve been looking for so long.

    Anyways, great post. It was a great read, never thought you had started this blog this very same year. Keep it going nomad 🙂

    What was it like travelling in Ukraine in the the middle of winter… Are there advantages to going in January? WOuld it be better to wait until it gets a bit warmer?

    • Naughty Nomad November 28, 2011 at 5:03 pm #

      Can’t really compare.. I only have limited experience. Although I quite like EE in Winter with the snow. It’s kind of romantic.

    I’m off to the Balkans next week so your article as revved me right up. I usually party in western European man as all that brass is too distracting. No fun if your paying in my opinion. Have you been to Ibiza. I’ve done a year in the asia but the little white isle is about as hedonistic as you can get. It’s a collection of every hedonistic nut case in Europe, blowing as much cash as possible. More drugs than Amsterdam and more pussy than Phuket.
