Naughty New Year Resolutions 2012


Bring on 2012.

So how did I do on last year’s resolutions? To remind you they were:

  • Visit at least 15 new countries.
  • Acquire conversational French
  • Capture half a dozen flags.
I’m delighted to say ALL were achieved. I visited 16 new countries. I became solid at French – cruising through West African and bedding consistently in the language of love. And as for half a dozen flags – I captured 15! More than double what I expected…

So, sticking to Travel & Dating, let’s see what challenges 2012 will bring…

1. Release the book

Naughty Nomad is nearly at copy-editing stage. This spring it will hit the shelves. I don’t have a date yet, and I’m juggling  with my Masters, but for sure by this time next year I’ll be an author. I can’t wait! This one is in the bag.

2. Visit 12+ new countries


In line with my ultimate goal of visiting every country in the world, I need to be visiting at least a dozen new countries a year. I’ve just booked my first few flights of the year. Aside from a weekend in Amsterdam in Feb, the first major trip this year will be in three weeks…

Me and Me hearties are off to the Middle East for our own uprising! We’re hitting Lebanon, Syria (border crossing permitting) and Jordan!  ARGHH!  (That’s 3 countries)

The next trip will probably be in Summer to the Caucasus ( 3 More countries). Maybe Iraq too.

September: all signs point West to a few months in Latin America, where I will tick off the rest of the countries.

3. Acquire Conversational Arabic & Intermediate Spanish

The Arabet.. get it? I is clever.

I’m studying both for while doing International Relations, so this is a fairly testable goal.

I used to have good Arabic when I was in Sudan, but I’ve lost most of it. My lessons and my upcoming trip to Arabia should bring be back to where I was and beyond.  Not sure if I’ll still have enough skills to bed a virgin though..

As for Spanish, I can already have conversations, but want to get up gain some sort of fluency. I taking intermediate Spanish which will test me academically – but picking up in Latin America will truly test me on a practical level. Bring it.

4. Capture half a dozen flags

As I mentioned last year, I’m pretty satisfied if I sleep with 6 new nationalities a year. A little sad you may think, but that’s because your not a shallow flagger like myself.  I’m not hoping for a repeat of 2011. Six is plenty. At 45 flags, I’m starting to run out of countries anyway. This means I’ll be hopefully reach 50 flags in the coming year. O yeah!

Most desired flags of 2011:
Any Arab flag – but I’m not holding my breath.

Most likely flags of 2011:
Probably will be mostly Latin American flags. Maybe a strangler from Europe or the East.

Giggity Giggity!

    Good Luck, Dude!
    How come you skip Israel?

    My goals are to go on at least 1 trip a month, even if it means just going down to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

    Using Pimsleur to get a decent enough grasp on Spanish for my trip in may for a month in Peru. I hear its the easiest place for gringos to hook up in south America. I hope that the rumors prove to be true.

    And to pack on about a stone of muscle. Preferably before May.

    Very nice year! My NYR is to be fluent in Russian, not the broken Russian I’ve been speaking for the last 5 years and visit all the Baltic states and of coarse capture every flag in those counties.

    Nomad, for your Arab flags try Tunisia and Morocco too. Trust me on this one. Good luck for the rest of the resolutions

    • Naughty Nomad January 3, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

      Thanks Dave, Noted. They are going on the list (perhaps even this year).. Morocco in March sounds like a winner.

    You can ask the Israeli border authorities not to put a stamp in your passport. They know the deal and they’re pretty good about it. The trickier part, I think, would be getting into Israel from the surrounding countries you’re visiting.

    • Naughty Nomad January 3, 2012 at 4:50 pm #

      Fuck it.. I’ll visit Israel later. They check the Arab border stamps too.

    The book sounds great. Will it be stories and tales or how to,as well? some guys with no game publish these ebooks on women from abroad and there is now how to section. also,any idea of size [pages] and price of the book;format?perhaps you could expand on that a bit?
    I reference this site so much, i shall be the first [well,second..] to buy the book.

    I admire your ambition with the languages. I can tell you the arabic alphabet looks more daunting than it actually is. Have you thought about some sort of post regarding the best/first languages to learn for international gaming? I think it’d be interesting.

    Also congratulations on the book, it looks like it’ll be very interesting.

    The Sudan split up into two nations last year so South Sudan is new.

    Hey man, I’m you follower for a while, you have some nice stories and good tips. I live in Rio de Janeiro, maybe I could show you around and take to the places to get some ladies, if you’re planing to visit Brazil.

    If you need any help when going to Lebanon and Syria, I’m in the region, I can make it an easier trip for you guys.
