We earlier told our readers about “Andy the Hobo Traveler” and predicted that he might be heading for Barbados. Andy arrived yesterday, Thursday 23rd, on a Liat flight from St. Vincent.
Andy mentioned Barbados Free Press in his blog, and seemed to be a little concerned that we had pre-announced his intent to visit Barbados. I guess Andy likes his privacy, and I can understand that. He has turned himself into a bit of a minor celebrity: It’s not every unemployed hobo who operates one of the world’s most popular travel websites.
Andy Accidentally Discovers Gay Barbados
Last night Andy stayed in a guest house, but left when he found himself staying at the wrong end of the beach. It seems he couldn’t even go for a stroll without having half a dozen men trying to pick him up. Oh well, Andy doesn’t seem too offended and writes in his blog that he finds Bajan gays to be quite mannerly, restrained and more civilized than in some other places he has visited. (For those who don’t know, Andy is a very straight guy heading for 50 years old – who is constantly being approached by women half his age.)
Andy wrote a whole page on Gay Barbados – very humourous – and this morning was in an internet cafe near The Gap. See you on the beach tonight, Andy!
