Hey ma look, it's me!



I was gathering together some photos of me from this blog recently after someone requested them, so I thought I'd share them with you. This is the most self-indulgent post I've ever made, even by this blog's usual Onanistic standards, but this chronological collection could at least be useful for nutrionists interested in charting my weight loss throughout my travels (apparently I got fat before I left Edinburgh and was a shrivelled wreck again by the time I got to Thailand - really? How did I not notice?)

Putting this together, I noticed that I really don't take that many photos of myself any more - like I don't feel the need to get in the frame as evidence that I actually visited a place (unless it seems funny). Either the novelty of having a camera was finally worn off, or I've become less vain over time. Says the guy who just spent a couple of hours compiling a blog post all about himself, consisting entirely of images of himself.

This is just photos of me that you've probably already seen (though some are from slightly different angles - exciting!) It might be me next to a thing, me doing a thing or me wearing a thing, but the subject is still me. Seriously, there are about 50 of them - this is the equivalent of my Facebook tagged images or something. If you're not interested in me, don't read more.



Fat Dave? Certainly deathly pale Dave.
This passport photo was taken in August 2010, shortly before I set off


Me in Egypt



Me exploiting a camel in Giza. Those pasty legs reveal I hadn't been travelling for long



Me next to some bloody big things at Luxor Temple






Me in a spooky tomb. Woooooooo!



Me next to a... whatever that is, at Bibliotheca Alexandrina


Me in Taiwan



Me at Taipei 101









Me at Tianxiang



Me and some random Korean girl who wanted a photo taken with me in Kaohsiung.
I was so confused that I got them to take one with my camera too. Why? What's this for?


Me in Thailand






Me by a cock rock on Koh Samui






Me and some skels at Dream World






Me getting chomped to death at Samphran Elephant Ground and Zoo


Me in Malaysia



Me by a violent thing at Fort Cornwallis













Me excited about meeting some monkeys. They were apathetic at best






Me in bloody Malacca. Most of these photos make me nostalgic, but this one just reminds me of being trapped there for three weeks



Me on Coral Island. I've spared you the sight of my topless, ripped body. I mean ribbed



Me on some creaky thing in Taman Negara


Me in Singapore



Me with a beard in Singapore. It was itchy, but I liked it. Bloody women



Me at the gates of Hell. Observe that my legs are now of a different race to the rest of me


Me in Indonesia






Me inside Ijen Crater



Me next to Lake Bratan Temple



Me wearing a thing in the Sacred Monkey Forest



Me getting eaten by Goa Gajah



Me at Lake Batur


Me in the Philippines



Me at Taal Volcano. I think I'd lost my prescription sunglasses by this point


Me in Borneo



Me with some hilarious monkeys at Labuk Bay



Me in a cave


Me in Thailand again






Me and some SODDING TIGERS. ARE YOU INSANE? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?



Me and Uncle Tow


Me in Cambodia



Me by Angkor Wat



Me at Ta Som


Me in South Korea



Me on Jeju-do



Me riding a massive green cock next to a giant speckled arse. You know, for a change



Me being a six-year-old girl


Me in Japan



Me in Fukuoka. Yes, I just have the one coat


Me on Rigel VII



May not have happened


Me in Sri Lanka (coming soon)



Yes, these blogs are a bit behind



What the bloody heck is that? This'll keep 'em readin'!


There'll be more new content next time, I promise. It might not be any good, but there'll be more oversized photos to upload and consume bandwidth, and that's what counts.

    1. But was I fat in Edinburgh? Two people have commented on my passport photo looking fat. It would be great if it was true, I need to gain at least 10kg to be 'normal.'

  2. I don't remember you being at all fat, but you do look fuller figured (faced?) in the passport photo and your first Egypt photo than you do in more recent ones. I don't think you have much to worry about, but if you do there are plenty of liposuction options, as well as non-surgical procedures, available to you.

    1. I got similarly unusually excited just now when someone pointed out that I had a few white hairs. But then it turned out they were just talking about sideburn hairs, which aren't even real hairs. Still youthful and not obese, what a bummer :(

    2. Maybe I'm in luck after all - someone recently told me that my torso looks like I used to be fat and lost the weight, leaving me with unpleasant folds. Hooray/sob!
