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.
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 cousin 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.
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.
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.
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!
