Let’s have a look.
2013 in review
January – Feb
Avast! The year started with a roar, as myself and some friends set sail to siege the most dangerous city in the world: Mogadishu, Somalia. The trip took in Luxembourg, Oman, UAE, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somaliland and Southern Somalia. Shit got crazy. Smuggling, hyenas, sex, suicide bombers—it had everything that makes a great adventure.
And the best bit? We made a YouTube series out of it! It was released in August. Check it out!
Between the trip and back home, I picked up Zimbabwean, Russian, Omani, and Somali flags.
I write city guides for:
- Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
- Dubai, UAE
- Muscat, Oman
- Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
- Djibouti City, Djibouti
- Mogadishu, Somalia
The Naughty Nomad Forum celebrates it’s first birthday.
The Somali trip cost a small fortune, so I buckle down and get to work.
I graduate with honors with a Masters in International Relations, finally join the gym, and start a video production company. During this period, I work hard on producing the series above. We also produced our first music video, several web commercials, and get commissioned for some live events.
I detail why you should learn Arabic,
I release Version 2.0 of the Naughty Nomad App FREE, featuring over 500 locations, language hacks and other cool features. Click to link to download yours, now!
I officially make it one year without watching porn.
In July, myself and some friends stage a 10 day siege in the Balkans in which I conquer every country in Eastern Europe. The trip was an absolute blast and took in Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia. I write guides for Belgrade, Novi Sad, and Ljubljana and pick up my Serbian and Slovenian flags along the way.
In August, I release the Naughty Nomad series and celebrate with a trip to Italy, and tick San Marino off the list in the process. I also meet up with a girlfriend from Yerevan in Treviso, and claim a beautiful Armenian virgin as my bounty.
And finally, I reveal my body transformation and post My 6 month Gym Results (with pics). I feel fucking amazing!
For my birthday, I book a flight to the Caribbean. The month long trip takes in Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas. I pick up all three flags and write guides for the Jamaican coast, Kingston, Havana and Nassau. I also dish out 5 valuable tips for hooking up in Cuba.
The blog hits 5 million+ page views.
At the end of October, I move to New York City! And pending my visa status , I plan to camp in the US for the coming months. Let’s just say, the city has been kind to me. I’ve met some of the most beautiful, incredible women of my life here. My flag counter reaches 65 with an exotic dancer from Colombia and a glamour model from Singapore. I celebrate Christmas in Ohio in a millionaire’s mansion, with a very sexy visit from Miss Claus.
Total Countries visited: 17
New Countries visited: 10 + 1 unofficial (Somaliland)
New Flags Captured: 12
That puts my ultimate goal for travelling to every country in the world at 92/196 or 47%. .
No fucking idea. For the first time in my life, everything is up in the air. Everything depends on US visa.
Bring it on!
