Approach women is all about one thing

If you search on the internet about picking up or simply getting better with women, the first word you will see will most likely be “approach”. And if we see game as a building, to move your feet towards someone you do not know is undoubtedly the cornerstone of its foundation. So much has been written about this topic and for sure you will read as most clicked pieces of advice such ones as “Overcome your approach anxiety”, “Gain the inner confidence to approach any woman you want” or even […]

The Colombian Diaries (5/5): Barranquilla

Day 1, Thursday: I came by bus from El Rodadero and when entering the city I had the impression that Barranquilla was much bigger than I had imagined. I arrived in El Prado, an old (built with drug’s money) but amazing hotel which I had booked for 37€/night. After the series of disappointments in the north coast and because there were no solid reports about Barranquilla, I had no expectations whatsoever in terms of what would I find here. Since I was totally alone, I decided to do a thing […]

The Colombian Diaries (4/5): Santa Marta

Day 1, Friday: We arrived at the bus station of Cartagena at around 4:00 pm, went to the “official” bus operator Expreso Brasilia, whose attendant told us that this was the only company which would go to Santa Marta and that the next bus would depart only at 6:15 pm, costing around 50,000 pesos (about 17€). But since life has taught me not to rely just on a single comment from one person, especially if that person is Latin, I searched further for other tour operators. And guess what? The […]

The Colombian Diaries (3/5): Cartagena

Day 1, Tuesday: I arrived at lunch time in the city which inspired so much the Colombian writer Gabriel García Marquéz and I could immediately understand why: Cartagena has indeed an aura of magic and charm, accompanied by a magnificent sea breeze, a pure Latin vibe and amazing colorful buildings. On the other hand, and putting things in a more down-to-earth perspective, I had the impression that I had landed in Africa, such were the number of black and dark-skinned people walking around. Just as a piece of advice, if […]

The Colombian Diaries (2/5): Medellin

Day 1, Tuesday: after still a nice day on the pool spent in Cali, we went to the airport at around 4:30 pm and arrived in Medellin already in the evening. After a long trip towards the neighborhood El Poblado (the traffic jam was chaotic, since the main highway was closed for constructions), there we were at the hotel Alameda de la 10, which we left after a quick shower. We had a quick dinner and then started wandering around Parque Lleras, which is the core of the party but […]

The Colombian Diaries (1/5): Cali

Day 1, Wednesday: arrived after a 20 hour trip, took a shower and immediately felt one of the main reasons why I have decided to come to Colombia: to have great weather, which allows a person to be in t-shirt anytime of the day. After finishing the dinner, we went to Las Tascas, an event at parque Bolivar, in which we paid 1€ for entrance, but whose outcome was worth much more: a live band and a DJ, cheap beer and, most importantly, everyone having real fun, a sign which […]

7 harsh truths about Brazil (and its women) in 2017

1. Taking selfies is a national sport One of the common traits I believe all the Latin American countries possess is this annoying habit of copying, glorifying and totally being obsessed about what comes from the USA. And Brazil, perhaps only surpassed by Mexico, is on the top on the list in terms of absorbing and breathing American influence. And using the Smartphone for every purpose is of course something which could not be excluded from the daily routine of the Brazilian people. Even so, using the phone for useful […]

The end of the Easy Bang

Oh the good, old days, in which you would go out, have a couple of drinks and finish somewhere with a lady on your side blowing your whistle. There is not a single guy on this planet who does not think, who has not thought or who will not think about going out and taking someone home like a master. But as most of you already know (or at least you should), this is a reality which does not exist anymore in many countries or is about to get extinct […]

The four phases of the westernization of a country

As we all know, the nightlife in the so-called western world is long dead, that is why many of us have opted to travel to other destinations which, according to my personal experience, have always given me much more rewards and moments of satisfaction among the opposite sex. Nevertheless, during the last five years of my life – especially the last two, as I will describe in detail in the article The End of the Easy Bang – I have been confirming that every time I go or come back […]

The child is grown, the dream is gone

I remember when I was 20: the head full of dreams, the world on the palms of my hands, a bright tomorrow. Basically, everything was (falsely) possible and if today did bring what I wanted, it would surely come soon. In this new millennium, when a regular guy grows up in any given western city, there are two ingredients which are always present in his everyday’s menu: scarcity and illusion. Scarcity because society tells him that he will never be rich and that he must study and word hard to […]
