We threw a lot of House Parties (Las Vegas)
Below is a video tour of one of our house parties
But like all good things, eventually… they come to an END…
Late September 2010 – The Cops had had enough….
Teaming up with Roommates Ryan Parker and Jonas Dick, we went to Los Angeles for a few days
October 2nd 2010… Everything I now owned was in 2 suitcase..
Good Bye America! Boarding the plane highly Intoxicated.
22 hours later, with a massive Hangover, I arrived in Bangkok, Thailand.
Temporary stay in Bangkok, then caught a Flight to Phuket.
Phuket “Pooh-Ket” was another world…
Beautiful Beaches all over Island. Kata Beach only a 5 minute walk.
The Island of Phuket (October 5th- December 26th 2010)
Found a hotel for $15 (500 baht) a night and partied it up for all of October.
Rudy (yellow shirt) a fellow poker player and poster on twoplustwo, has been living in Phuket for many years and really helped us adjust to the new life in this strange land.
Moved into a Beach House where I lived for 2 months with some fellow poker players
Flipping for Shots with new poker player friends who now called Phuket home.
And as the life of a poker player goes, the ups and downs come with them. In late December 2010 had a bad run on the tables and had to give up the luxurious beach house and move to a different.
Instead of paying $900 rent for a beach house room, I got my own place for $250 a month in Chiang Mai
Ryan had arrived a few days earlier and we celebrated New Years Eve
My sister Courtney came to visit for 6 weeks and loved Chiang Mai
April 2011 Song Kran!!
What is Song Kran?? Its a giant water fight for between everyone in the entire country for 5 whole days! Yes, 5 whole days. Not lets stop and think about what this means exactly. Yes, its hot, yes, everyone has water guns, water hoses, huge water buckets in back of trucks and no one is safe. The 1st couple days were fun, but when I just wanted to go to grab something next door I would get drenched by someone. Yes, 5 days! But I loved it!!
I loved Chiang Mai, $4 1 hour massages and this …
Played some softball with the local college team, Payap University.
Next Stop Philippines for 2 weeks
After living in Thailand for a while, I didn’t care much for the Philippines. Everything seems over priced and EVERYONE tried to ripped you off, hustle you, and bother you. We had repeated horrible experience with cab drivers, over charging, having faster meters, one drop us a few miles in the wrong direction to run up the meter, making us 10 minutes late. Manila was dirty, over crowded and a headache.
Went to White Beach, Philippines for a few days and it was better than Manila, but still not a place I would recommend vacationing too. Plus I found out the next day that the hot girl I was making out with all night was a lady boy. Yeah, don’t go to Philippines.
After that, flew to Prague to spend the summer drinking and playing baseball for the Praha Eagles. Now its the end of August and that concludes what happened over the last 12 months.
