The cost of travel these days makes it easy for a guy, especially a single guy with no relationship responsibilities, to make trips to particular events around the world. You achieve two goals.
- You are able to support and follow your interest, your hobby
- You get to see many other countries
There is a spin-off advantage too. If you bump into any women on these trips, you know for sure that their interests are the same as yours. Let’s look at a couple of scenarios that will show you what that means.
Online dating. If you’re smart, you probably have a couple of accounts with some online dating websites where you can meet women from different countries. Or, you can meet women from the same country but different cities. With these women, you have developed a relationship built on similar interests.
Let’s say your hobby is horses, horse racing, gambling. The girl you are chatting to online is also an equine enthusiast. How many famous horse races are there around the world that you can go to and meet?
At the Event. If you’re at the Grand Prix because you love Formula One racing and meet a young lady there, would it be safe to assume that she loves fast cars and F1 racing as well? You betcha!
Okay, you get the idea. Many people like to go on holidays and soak up the sun, relax, swim, maybe explore the surrounding countryside, drink too much and probably have a great holiday. A better holiday is one on which you attend an event that has some specific importance to you, such as being your hobby, your passion your holiday goal.
What type of person are you? A geek? A nerd? An Adventure seeker? An extreme sports enthusiast? A cultural guru? A movie fanatic?
You can be any one of these and something is happening around the world that you can attend to follow your interest. Let’s take a look at few really cool events that will allow you to travel as well as scratch your interest.

Crufts World Dog Show, UK – For Dog Lovers
Website: Crufts World Dog Show
If you own a pet, we’re talking a dog here, because you can walk it in the park, it’s an excellent way to meet like-minded animal lovers of the opposite sex.
You can’t walk cats nor fish, turtles and hermit crabs, and hoping to meet women while walking your pet python is never going to happen.
Women love their cats and dogs and they all know that a guy that loves animals has a good heart. The problem is that some men like their dog and prefer to be with their mutt rather than have a relationship with a beautiful girl.
All that aside, a trip to the UK means seeing all the sights in London as well as following your love for dogs. If you are entering your dog in the show, even better.
The Crufts Dog Show attracts entrants from all over the world and it is THE most elite and sought-after prize on the planet. There are hundreds of entries and the competition is fierce! You will see and meet rather ambitious young ladies that believe their dog is the best.
If you believe in reincarnation, coming back as the favorite pet of a beautiful girl is not a bad choice.

The Olympic Games – For the Sports Crazy
Website: The Olympic Games
It costs billions of dollars for cities to host the Olympic Games, but the cost doesn’t seem to deter countries from competing each 4 years to hold them. The income they get from the 12,000 athletes that attend, the TV rights and the spectators that come to watch then tour the country are supposed to make up for the enormous outlay.
The 2012 Games was held in London, the next Games will be held in Rio. All these cities are fantastic places to visit and tour as a visitor.
Your love of sport reaches its pinnacle at the Olympics because you see the world’s best doing their thing. Equal numbers of men and women compete and watching beautiful bodies strut their stuff won’t do any harm to your eyes either.

It doesn’t what you do and what hobby you love, there is probably an event in the world somewhere that brings together many people who share your interest.
Do you love to play Monopoly? There’s a world championship held each year for that game. It’s the same with chess, volleyball, skateboarding, bowling, baseball and believe it or not, even Tiddlywinks!
The thing is, you don’t have to be alone or just in a small group that has the same hobby. You don’t have to sit at home wondering how to meet girls.
You can travel the world, chasing your hobby interests and chasing women without missing a beat. Some people save their money every year to take a holiday to a place where the thing that they love doing is being done!
