Drunken Marathon

It started over drinks, as all outrageous stories do.

With drinks flowing I found myself in an argument with friends about our running abilities which led to me making what I thought was a smart bet When I awoke the next day I was reminded by my bet through a series of text messages.

Tubing and other surprises in Laos

Me and my mate Craig were in the Asian backpacker party destination, tubing in Vang Vieng, Laos. We joined mainly young Irish and English in drinking games and ropes swings along the river.

After this big day we headed to a nightclub. I joined the crowd dancing on a podium.

A Smashing Entrance

One of the most embarrassing moments of my life happened in an art gallery. I was wandering around a crowded exhibition when something unimaginable happened. A painting on the wall across the room caught my eye, and, captivated, I began walking towards it to get a closer look.

By Location

Why is it called bytestories?

This is a place for "byte-sized" stories and there is a 1500 character (about 250 words) limit for two main reasons. Firstly, we want you to know that "War and Peace" isn't required to leave your mark. Secondly, it takes about 2 minutes to read each story meaning you can head here whenever you want a quick (and entertaining) read.
