backpacking Style of travel


Recommended Posts

Alright there guys.


I am curious to know how many if any of you have toured Thailand or any other Far eastern places , Staying in bed sits, camping or what ever.Working in any possible job to stay afloat so to speak. You know the normal cheap as possible method of travel?


I have just parted from a girl here in england and am starting to evaluate my life a bit , im not bitter, annoyed or anything like that i just feel a trip of self discovery in far eastern places is what i have always been destined to do and now is A better time than any.


Soooooo, Is there anyone here that has done this in the past? Or even better plan to do this in the not to distant future??


Thanks for reading and i hope to be reading your stories, thoughts ETC

When I was a young and innocent student type I 'did' Thailand and Indonesia, backpacking around but there was no chance of work in S.E. Asia for an unemployed student.


I spent all my money and then headed for Australia to find work. Then I was young enough to get a work permit for Oz.

Had an absolute fantastic time getting drunk and smoking the 'bong' for a year before heading back into Asia to spend all my Dollars.


On my visits to LOS since then,I've chatted with quite a few blokes working on rigs in the Gulf or off Australia and a few working in the Aero industry here....but backpackers getting jobs?

I spent 10 years of my younger days on the road. I joined an Africa overland expedition in London and traveled in an old battered ex British army Bedford 4x4 across Africa to Cape Town with 21 others who turned out to be a motley crew of dope smokers. Had a great time.

Traveled indepentley from Mexico city through central America and South America to lake Titicaca.

However spent most of my time traveling in Asia as this is the cheapest and safest option. Push biked from Singapore to Istanbul, Toured south Asia on an Indian Royal Enfield motorbike. Treked and climbed in the Hindu Kush,Pamir,Karakorum, and Himalaya.

On my travels I learnt and instructed scuba diving, Muay Thai and taught English as a secound language amongst other things I have managed a bungalow operation and beach bar. So there is work out there if your prepared to put the effort in and learn as you go new skills.

All you need is a sense of adventure, tons of patience and a little bit of money.

Don't worry about going alone as you will make lots of friends on the way.

Health warning - you will seriously enjoy yourself.

I can recomend the Indian subcontinent to back pack around ,cheap as chips and very rewarding.

Lonely Planet publish travel guides and give all the info on how to get started.

Do it , you only live once.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
