The discerning Stoner travels the world these days. Looking out for the ultimate Stoner location. Some may say that a sofa and pizza delivery number are all that it takes to achieve Stoner Nirvana but today, the average Stoner likes to travel and get their kicks in varying locations across the planet.
Glastonbury Festival in England is the natural habitat of the stoner. Not only is the festival created by one of the most famous hippies of all time, Michael Eaves, but the festival has attracted stoners since it began in the 1960’s. Jimmy Hendrix, of course, enjoyed a bit of Purple Haze at the festival and the stage was then set for creative Stoners to get their groove on. If music and chilling is your thing, get a golden ticket to Glastonbury.
Tarifa is a beautiful Hispanic setting, in the southernmost point of Spain. The windsurfing community have always loved Tarifa for those strong winds that blow between Spain and a Stoner’s favourite destination, Morocco. So, cheap travel to Spain with all the benefits of having Morocco on your doorstep. Win, win.
Malawi in East Africa has had its fair share of hard times but for the wandering Stoner, Malawi will always be a winner. This beautiful country is well worth travelling to. A favourite of the backpacking brigade, there are many cool run guest houses that just love to play Bob Marley records and serve up banana pancakes. If you can’t chill here, there is no hope for you!
Amsterdam is a cliché for the Stoner. However, sometimes a cliché can be worth investigating. Strolling into a cafe, perusing the menu and then sitting back in comfort to consume your order has never been so civilised. The Dutch surely know how to keep the munchies at bay with delicious fries with mayo an every corner.
Tulum – Mexico
There is something spectacular to be experienced perusing your hobby under the stars. Sitting around a campfire and gazing up at the stars is a welcome pastime for even the most jaded of Stoners. A great place to do this is in Mexico’s Ruta Maya, where the stars shine brightly every night. Forget the nightclubs of Cancun but go a little farther and the beautiful beaches of Tulum will entice any Stoner. The Caribbean Sea laps the shore, whilst the thatched bar hosts djs who play chilled Latin beats. Grab a hammock and gaze at the stars – this is Stoner paradise.
