Hi I'm Nick. I like traveling and making people laugh. This blog is what happened when I combined the two.

The 60 Shot Challenge

This little tale takes place on Koh Phi Phi – an island off the southwest coast of Thailand. Upon my arrival, I decide to stay at a place called Blanco’s that’s located directly on the beach. It’s a fun place, but definitely not somewhere to stay if you plan on sleeping. The walls of the rooms vibrate until three a.m. from the constant pounding of music. It’s a good place to socialize – not so much to relax.

Blanco’s main claim to fame is that once a week they host “The 60 Shot Challenge”. Now, you obviously don’t take sixty shots of hard alcohol. Instead, you’re given three buckets. For those of you that have never had a bucket, imagine a bucket you would use as a kid to make sandcastles except that instead of sand it’s filled with coke and cheap rum. Normally you’d buy a bucket to share with a few friends. In “The 60 Shot Challenge”, you have to finish three of these concoctions by yourself.

Antisemitism and Silent Porn

Since Laos, these two guys have been traveling with me. I try to shake them off at every turn, but they’re like two big British leeches. Their names are Jon and Bop.

The Pub with Cold Beer

This tale begins somewhere in southern Vietnam. A group of us are trying to get to a place called “The pub with cold beer”. Beautiful name. We rent bicycles and turn down some random dirt path.

Absinthe and Rapids

Vang Vieng, Laos is a lovely place surrounded by stunning rock formations. But that’s not why people come here.

Basically, the only reason tourists come here is to get shitfaced and go tubing down a river. In its heyday, there were 30 bars dotting the banks of the river. Alcohol and a fast current do not make for a safe mix and roughly 1 tourist a month was dying. It was closed down for about a year and recently reopened with only 2 bars and a few more safety regulations (you’re required to wear a life vest).
