My nights out in bars
Last night talking to my lovely friend Lola from Lola’s Travels, I was thinking of going to Toronto in the beginning of June for TBEX conference and trying to prepare myself mentally. Not because it will be my first time traveling to Canada but maybe because of all the nights out there again. Meeting up with other travel bloggers do get crazy!
It just reminded me our nights out at ITB in Berlin in March, or those at WTM in London. I’ve been to London a few times already but as weird as it might sound, back in November it was my first time visiting some clubs. And it was also my first time in a gay bar ever – trust me, it did feel nice knowing no one was going to hit on me!
The shame was we never had a chance to visit the Ice Bar in Mayfair, London because ice bars are my kind of thing.
Ice bars are so unique! I love how they bring crystal clear ice from Northern Sweden and also how they make you wear those weird huge thermal coats with hoods! And then all the lights make the bars wonderful too!
The Icebar in London, the UK’s only permanent ice bar, is special as well because of another reason. It displays the Galantic Frontiers right now, a globe designed by Åke Larsson and Ben Rousseau. And where there is a globe or a map of our beautiful world, I love the place just because it reminds me of the biggest reason of my life – traveling.
Unfortunately, there was not such a thing as a globe in the Ice bar in Stockholm I visited back in fall 2009. We still had fun there with my work colleague/friend as in the ice bars you don’t usually drink beer nor wine which I was never fond of. Cocktails and spirits were always my preference. And that’s what the ice bars are all about, right?
When visiting Stockholm, try to check out the best places of Scandinavia, too.
But when people see the name of my website they mostly think of a few things – that I spend my nights getting wasted at bars and discos all around the world and that I also change the guys as quickly as I do the destinations.
However, the biggest surprise is none of the two is true!
My dad has been owner of Stupavska Krcma, a pub back in my home town Snina for a few years already and my uncle had one too but maybe exactly that was one of the reasons why I quit drinking back in January 2009. I just realized I don’t need alcohol to have fun! I know, the surprising fact number 1 about Crazy Sexy Fun Traveler!
I work most of my nights trying to write down posts about my adventures. So I don’t go out that often like many people at my age do.
It means just a simple thing. If I go out, it has to be or a spectacular bar, or with amazing people I like so much that I can spend hours talking to even if they do drink and I do not. Or just both of the mentioned things.
I just thought I would write about this topic because a few days ago once again I surprised someone who thought living up to my name had to include alcohol. It doesn’t.
But the best bars are still part of my life!
