Hello! I am Scruffy Gios!
I am bearded, scruffy, gay. I am an happy chap, who loves discovering the world.
I am deeply in love with Italy, my country! I am in love with my beautiful region, Puglia, the “heel of the boot”; with my family, and of course with my good friends, wherever in the world they are (and I promise you, they are really spread out everywhere!)
Why Scruffy Gios? Because I love my beard, and not always have the time to take care of it, although I try to do so as often as I can… but I love my scruffy look anyway
I like to think of me as an instablogger: on Gios’ blog you will find short, concise posts, with images and straight to the point tips and suggestions of what to see in the places that I visit! I don’t want to bother you too much… there is plenty of travel guides and more respected and well known (straigh and gay) travel webpages and gay holidays blogs or local magazines out there, that can give you better suggestions. I will make sure to point them out from time to time, so you will have plenty of sources to check when planning your next dream adventure. I will try and make sure to keep my blog posts short, pleasant and possibly funny. One promise: my posts will never be longer than 500 words, so you can read them while on the go, and quickly forget them and get back to your definitely much more interesting life!
I want you to discover Scruffy Gios’ life, and laugh with my crazy world. I love the finest things in life: sea, beach, nice nights out, cozy nights in, great food and good wine. All of this is quality of life for Scruffy Gios.
I also like the amazing gay lifestyle: Gay bars, gay clubs, pubs, gay beaches, gay cruises, gay ski week… I am a rainbow man, proud and happy with what I am!
I am very curious, always qestioning what happens behind the corner, or on the other side of the world. I am restless: I have lived in a few places of the world so far (Los Angeles, London, Madrid, Milan…) and eager to get to know more of this small world!
At the end of 2014 I happened to lose my job in London, so I decided to take time off from life and starting to think to myself and my wellbeing. That’s when I took the courage to move out from the Big Smoke and decided to challenge myself in a much different environment: the world, never too big for Scruffy Gios!
Yes, I am a selfie addicted, and this website is mainly my insta picture diary of the places I visit. Yes, shameless half naked pictures too 😉 Hope you do not mind!
My life has changed I am loving it. I hope you will love it too!
