The Most Debaucherous Places I've Been to
- Ios, Greece: When people think of European party Islands, Ibiza is what automatically jumps to mind. But Ibiza's lesser known Greek cousin, Ios, is still a pretty wild time. All the bars seem to be within stumbling distance of one another, and there are lots of post-club gyros vendors for some late-night snacking. For the record, the last time I was in Greece was 8 years ago, and apparently the party scene has shifted a bit ...
- Mardi Gras, Sydney, Australia: Sydney's gay Mardi Gras is one of the world's best-known parties. Is it for you? If you don't mind crowds, gratuitous nudity and occasionally being groped by friendly Aussies, then yes. But don't expect to actually see the world-famous parade unless you get a seat ahead of time (read: 8 o'clock in the morning.) -- there are just too many people!
- Full Moon Party, Koh Phangan, Thailand: I saw some pretty crazy things when I went to a full-moon with my friend Jenny and a group of Irish blokes we were travelling with. But when the drink of choice is buckets filled with coke, a mickey of Thai whiskey and Red Bull, you pretty much expect to see some pretty strange things -- including a person you've never met snoozing on the hammock of your beach hut when you wake up the next day.
- Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: I don't remember much from my night out in Puerto Vallarta, except that a man dressed in a gorilla suit accompanied me to the ATM and I ended up on the stage of a club, showing off my mad drumming skills (for the record, I had never played the drums before, and haven't since either.) I know many people say Cancun is 'the' party capital, but I can't vouch for that as I've never been out in Cancun.
