Spring Break Ibiza is right around the corner. You’ve put in hours of hard work trying to come up with the ultimate packing list –  New bikini? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Condoms? You really should. You’ve got all the gear that will make everyone back home cringe with jealousy while they scroll through your Instagram feed. Only problem is, you don’t know where the picture-worthy spots are around the island.

Don’t worry mates, we’re on your team. With Spring Break Ibiza coming up, we want to help you double your follower count and boost that Insta-fame feeling that we all wish we could achieve. We’ve put together a foolproof list of the best spots in Ibiza for Insta-lovers all over the world.

Es Vedra

Although you can’t actually get on the eerie, uninhabited limestone rock that protrudes from the beautiful blue waters surrounding Ibiza, the view from Cala d’ Hort is where you want to head. Aside from the Instagram-worthy footage to be captured, Es Vedra is also known for it’s unexplainable, hair-raising occurrences that include UFO sightings, strange lights and noises, underwater paranormal activity, and effects similar to the world famous Bermuda Triangle.This spook-tabulous place is also known to be the one of the largest magnetic spots in the world, in turn making it an ideal place for meditation and healing. So grab your camera and yoga mats and head down to Cala d’ Hort and get your namaste on.

Sa Trinxa

Grab your bikinis or your birthday suit (welcome to the best nude beach around) and head out onto the green pier that is located on Las Salinas beach. Sa Trinxa is the shack-like beach bar that is located right on the beach. All around you will have panty-dropping views of the beaches and waters, but for that photo that will gain you millions of likes (it’s been scientifically proven), head towards the green pier that rests in the water and strike up your best pose. Bonus points if you’re topless.

Pedrera de Cala d ‘Hort

Also known as Atlantis Beach. This one is not for the faint-hearted. This quarry of sandstone (basically a giant pit with the bluest water imaginable) is located near Sant Josep de Sa Talaia. Ideal for a birds eye view photo of you basking in the sun while floating in the water. This location is proven to make all your mates back home start to boil with jealousy.

Alright mates, this location is ideal if you want to fool your old folks back home that you’re staying fit instead of just chugging vodka until the sun starts to rise. In order to achieve the ultimate climax, this journey is about to take a little over an hour to complete. Don’t let that stop you. There are spots along your trek where you can take a break, wipe off the sweat, strike a pose, and continue the journey. Once you’ve climaxed, you’ll get a full view of the island in all it’s green and blue glory. The ideal spot for a photo of you after your greatest achievement, perfect for a “life begins at the end of your comfort zone” caption.

Cala Conta

Instagram Photo

Before you decide to get totally sloshed for the night, we recommend you stray away from sunset strip in San Antonio, and make your way over towards Cala Conta for one of the best sunsets that you may ever get to experience (and take photos of) in your life. Sunset Ashram, the restaurant that sits perfectly along the coast with panoramic views of the water, is what everyone is constantly raving about. If you plan on treating yourself to a fancy meal with fantastic views, good for you. For those who may have a dwindling budget, we recommend grabbing a bottle wine and heading to the beach to save some pennies. A photo of you and your mates dancing around with the sunset as your backdrop will definitely help you on your rise to Instafame. Side note: if you plan on splurging on a feast at Sunset Ashram, make sure to make reservations well in advance!


If you like long nights, beautiful women, and fucken great people then you should definitely make your way to Ibiza with us!

The Ultimate Saint Patrick’s Day Plan

Saint Patrick’s Day is this weekend, and is there a better plan than celebrating the world’s most widely celebrated party day at its spiritual and geographical epicentre? We think not. That’s why this St Paddy’s we’re heading up to the Emerald Isle and celebrating the day the little green man chased away all the snakes (we think that’s what it’s about) right in the belly of all things Irish.

That’s right, we’ll be spending Saint Patrick’s Day in Ireland, and because we’re Stoke Travel we figured, why not make a weekend of it? So here’s how we’re going to do it:

  1. On Friday the 16th of March we’re going to meet up in Kilkenny, the party capital of Ireland and home and namesake of its other famous beer, where we’ll set up headquarters for the weekend (conveniently located between Dublin and Cork airports). That night we’ll do a bar crawl, put our green garb to the test, warm up with some Irish whisky for the next few days of mayhem, and maybe get some rest.
  2. Today’s the day. Saturday is when we wear green and have Guinness for breakfast, or at least Baileys with your coffee. Today’s St Pat’s Day and we’re making our way into Dublin city centre to watch the famous parade, party with the locals and then see the sights and visit the famous bars and pubs. We’ll finish the party back in Kilkenny because it makes for an easier stumble home when the Irish spirit is coursing through your veins.
  3. Sundays should be taken easily – Sundays with post-St Pat’s Irish whisky hangovers doubly so – and we’re going to wake up slow and take some time seeing the sights. That afternoon we’ll be doing a late lunch/early dinner with all the Irish favourites, as well as a Guinness and Irish spirits tour. If you want to, we can hit the town one more time, why not?

And that’s the plan. Three nights of living the hedonistic Irish dream, three nights and their days of getting into the St Paddy’s spirit and enjoying Ireland’s stereotypes. We know we’re not giving you much time to plan this trip, but we’ve already got everything covered, all you need to do is show up and join the crew for some good craic, whatever that means.

This is the world’s most widely celebrated party, and if you’re in the position to enjoy it right where it began, you’d be mad not to. We’ve got some spaces still available, so grab your finest green party shirts and get to booking.

Sources Confirm, That Bierfrau is Definitely Into You

According to various experts, that Bavarian Bathsheba who poured your last liter was definitely checking you out.  Sources confirm that, among the several thousand men she served during the festival, nobody pulled off that lederhosen like you did.

Stoke News heard rumors of the modern-day fairy tale that took place during Springfest, and went to investigate.  With help from various witnesses, experts, and a composite of phone videos taken around that magical moment, Stoke was able to piece together the events that led to your soul recognizing its boozy counterpart in another.

One witness claims it all started around your fourth liter.  “I saw him make his way to the bar, and he tripped a little bit but caught himself.  Then he locked eyes with the barmaid, and that’s when I knew that something wonderful was happening.”

Videos of the scene clearly show the buxom bierfrau getting lost in your eyes as you butcher the pronunciation of ein liter bitte. It’s hard to say exactly what drew her to you so immediately.  Some think it was the wet spot on your shirt from when you’d spilled your beer earlier that day, while others are sure it was the unshaven, unwashed appearance you’d cultivated over several nights of camping.  Whatever the cause, the result was obvious.

One expert weighed in on the scene.  “Here, as she puts the beer down in front of him, we can see her bending over just so, baring her ample bosom for our subject,” the expert said.  “Her body language and attitude are all indicative of a mating ritual.”

“Sparks were flying, for sure,” said one Springfest visitor who witnessed the scene.  “The way she looked at him and demanded ‘zehn euro,’ I got chills.”

Indeed, your primal display of courtship left an impression on those that witnessed it.  During our research, Stoke was bombarded by questions about what became of your whirlwind affair.

When asked for a comment, the siren of steins seemed confused at first.  “What?” she said. Eventually, though, and with a loving twinkle in her eye, our hoppy heroine recalled. “You mean the boy who wouldn’t stop staring at meine brüste? He’s cut off.”

Don’t worry though, everybody knows she’s just playing hard to get.

Are you the lederhosened Lothario of legend? Only one way to find out. Well two, actually.

Inspirational Travel Quotes, Busted!

We’ve all got those people in our lives, those who go on a holiday once and become the Dalai Lama of travel wisdom, burdening their social media feed with all manner of appropriated and often misquoted travel quotes. Heck, we’re all guilty of being that person, at some point in our lives. 

It’s great! They’re great! Travelling’s great! We’re great! But some of these quotes aren’t exactly accurate, are they, and really we think there’s more value in making up our own quotes that apply specifically to us, because:

There are as many types of travllers as there are people in the world.

See, we just made that up, and isn’t it nice. Anyway, here are some other travel quotes that we consistently come across that we just can’t help but make a little fun of…

All those who wander aren’t lost

That’s right, it’s true, it would be a folly to assume that everybody wandering around was lost. Some people are just ineffective walkers and others perhaps enjoy dawdling, or have tired legs, or perhaps are a little drunk and just seem to be meandering when they’re really sort of stumbling. BUT, if somebody is walking around aimlessly it’s a better indication that they’re lost than if they’re striding with purpose. Lost people are never moving quickly and effectively because what’s the point in making good time when you don’t know where you’re going?

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer

That’s a really nice thought, but it absolutely disregards all the other things you can buy that make you richer, like stocks, property, drugs for resale, old stamps, football cards, work boots, fake tits and Bitcoins. It actually does seem that many of the people who once told us that travel is the only purchasable commodity that increases our wealth are now telling us that Bitcoin is the best way to get rich quick. You really can’t take these people seriously.

The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page

This one is particularly bullshitty. The world is nothing like a book, not in shape nor in the way content is delivered. It’s more like a round television, with sights and sounds and stories that are being constantly updated. But ok, ok, it’s a metaphor. So the world is a book, therefore it’s a story with a beginning, middle and end. Great! Now which page do the non-travellers read? The cover? Every person who doesn’t travel has read the cover? I would postulate that even those who don’t go on extended holidays and other movement based adventures can be completely familiar with the beginning and most of the middle of the book, because nobody’s claiming that travel makes you a historian, or a physicist, or an evolutionary biologist, right? Are travellers saying that they are readers of the whole book, and thus able to see the future? Ridiculous.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step

This one is tough to argue against, although it does leave out people in wheelchairs and rollerbladers, but what this travel quote fails to mention is that after that first step the journey of a thousand miles then contains another, approximately, 1,999,999 steps, each one more difficult than that first step we’re all making such a song and dance about. How about we give each and every of those other steps some respect, like, The journey of a thousand miles is made possible by the all too difficult 587,006th step? Why does the first step get all the kudos, it’s likely the easiest to do. Literally pick up your rucksack and take a step. I would say that the step immediately after that first one would be more difficult and perhaps more worthy of praise.

Something about the journey being more important than the destination

Absolutely horseshit and abviously spread by somebody who’s never stayed with Stoke Travel. The journey is a bus ride, a long check in queue at the airport, a speeding fine, blisters on the top of both your little toes. The journey is lugging your gear, getting a sore arse, committing your mortality to the irrational acceleration of a meth-addled Thai bus driver. The destination, however, is when you take your shoes off and jump on the bed, crack open a cold beer, have a shower, meet your new friends, have a dance on the dancefloor, make out with some never-before-known hottie – basically everything yuo do at the destination kicks the journeys arse. Fuck the journey, make it as painless as possible without putting you into debt, and lap up the delights at the destination.

On International Women’s Day Stoke Travel Announces “We Love Chicks”

Not to be left behind by the wave of pro-women sentiment sweeping over the world, Stoke Travel CEO Tony Paraless took the opportunity today to announce that he, and the company, “Completely loves chicks. Absolutely. Even the really bitchy ones.”

The enlightened announcement came after the CEO realised that not only are more than half of Stoke Travel guests female, but that the staff both on destination and in the office outnumbered the men by at least two-to-one.

“Fuck, just take a look around”, Tony said, gesturing at the majority of Stoke Travel employees who only have X chromosomes, “If I didn’t say that I loved birds I’d get eaten alive by this lot.”

Often cast as a “blokey”, “laddy” or “frat guy” brand that caters to travellers’ puerile desires to drink as much beer as possible, Paraless insists that isn’t because Stoke Travel favours one sex over the other.

“Since the beginning we’ve definitely had more female guests than anything, except maybe for Running of the Bulls, and I can tell you that from a cost perspective the women definitely put as much of a dent in our unlimited beer and sangria budget as the men do. People think that things like beer bongs and nude runs are exclusively for guys, but I think that’s sexist. We absolutely encourage women to do nudie runs too!

“Plus, female money is just as good as any other money, and when there are heaps of girls around all the guys are quicker to reach for their wallets and show off by buying drinks for everybody. Really, having more female guests is a win-win for everybody.”

Notoriously a male-dominated event, Paraless and Stoke Travel plan on reversing that trend and want to attract more women to Pamplona this year than ever before.

“One of the worst things in travel is seeing a huge bunch of guys turn up to an event, too much testosterone in one place never makes for a good party. So this year we’re thinking, what do women want, and creating a Sanfermines program that’s more attractive to the fairer sex.

“So this year we’re focusing more on the street party, you know, long sunny days drinking sangria and dancing in the streets, watching the fireworks at night, plus we’re putting on Stoked in the Park, which will feature pool parties and live music – bands, DJs, you name it, if the tarts don’t get around this event, then nobody will!”

When questioned whether his choice to champion women on International Women’s Day was opportunistic, Paraless was dismissive. “I’ve loved chicks my whole life mate. Apart from one time in Canada I’ve exclusively hooked up with sheilas, and that time I didn’t know it was a dude until it was too late.”

Have an empowering International Women’s Day from everybody at Stoke Travel, and while this article is satire, we are deadly serious about you bitches being the absolute backbone of this company, both as guests and the people running the show. See you at Pamplona!

Four Mint Reasons to Learn Spanish

Picture this: you’re in Spain, standing in the middle of nowhere. The only people around are locals who don’t speak English, and they’re shooting Spanish words at you like you’re a target in a game of paintball. You just want to go home, but you don’t know where it is or if you’ve even got a place to stay.

In situations like this, wouldn’t it be nice to speak Spanish? Luckily for you, our friends at Suspanish have the best language courses in cities across Spain, all on one website. You just have to find the one that suits you best!  We know that legends like you have gotten pretty far with just the language your mama gave you, but here’s four more mint reasons to brush up that Spanish.

  1. Wasted snacks are the best snacks

Obviously we don’t mean throwing food away, we’re talking about those snacks you’ll shove into your mouth while you’re drunk. What’s better than ending a great night out with a tasty, fatty snack? But to order food, you’ll need to make yourself clear en Espagnol, or you might end up with something completely different than what you had in mind. Make sure you can speak enough Spanish to order that juicy hamburger, otherwise you’ll end up with nothing but regret and the leftovers from your fridge.

  1.   ¡No hablo Ingles!

At non-touristic places especially, it can be hard finding somebody who understands you. Most Spaniards don’t speak English very well, if at all. Not being able to communicate can be frustrating, and frustrated people do the craziest things. So prevent yourself from ending up in a situation like this, and just take a damn language course!

  1. Pick up a Spanish hottie

Imagine: you’re standing in a bar and you catch a glimpse of the most gorgeous human being you’ve ever seen. This could be the love of your life (or just a good bang!) and you want to make a good first impression, so you pull out your smoothest pick-up line. They give you a weird look and say ‘’no hablo d’Inglès.’’ Uh-oh! Now you have two choices: keep struggling through the language barrier in hopes your looks will be enough, or give up. After a few awkward minutes of staring and trying to understand one another, you decide to walk away, all the while regretting that you didn’t take that language course when you had the chance.

  1. Find your way in life

You’ve been in Spain for two weeks, and since it’s a big country, you’ve gotten lost several times already. Right now you’re standing in the middle of nowhere. You’ve tried explaining that you’re lost, but everybody either doesn’t understand, or they can only give directions in Spanish. What is ‘’a la derecha?’’ What does ‘’todo recto’’ mean? With a Spanish course from Suspanish under your belt, you can spend more time enjoying Spain and less time trying to find your way. It makes life a hell of a lot easier!

Las Fallas Checklist

The days of waiting are almost over for Valencia’s largest festival, Las Fallas. Before you know it, it will be La Crema (the day of the burning) and everyone will be dancing in the streets with sangria flowing through their veins and all their pyromaniac fantasies coming true. From the authentic paella to the 8am fire poppers to get you off your hungover ass, this one of a kind spanish fiesta will be one to remember (or not depending on how much sangria you consume). Before you head off to the fiery land, we wanted to make a list of things to help you have a literal lit af time.

Ear Plugs

…if you want to be a little bitch. This is a festival where the noise has no limit, the nights truly never end, and a cute little three year old with a small “little” firework could actually be the most dangerous thing you’ve encountered in months.


Sure, trying to run full speed in flip flops while simultaneously trying to dodge a firework you just set off is humorous for the rest of us, and it just might even help us gain followers from the video we upload of you, we’re not sure if it’s in your best interest. But hey, by all means be our guest, we won’t not laugh at you.

Form Fitting Clothes

This seems a bit off, but you’ll be thanking us when your scarf doesn’t accidently catch fire and all of sudden you’re up in flames just like the fallas and ninots that are crashing to the ground as you were trying to Snapchat them to your friends back home.

Your Mates

There’s something about chugging sangria, dancing, and zigzagging your way through a crowd of thousands of people from all over the world at 3AM with the best group of belligerent bastards that you could ask for. If you’ve taken it upon yourself to do your own self-fulfilling, soul seeking, solo traveling but are trying to party like you never have (or remember) don’t be afraid to join our crew of like minded miscreants for this fiesta of a lifetime.

Cash For Paella  

Seriously, Las Fallas festival aside, get the fucken paella in Valencia. Take a quick break from inhaling sangria to give your system enough of a reload to get you through the entire night and into the morning. Valencia is the birthplace of paella valenciana and one would be a fool not to give this authentic dish a try. So don’t be a damn fool.


After a weird, freaky, and liquored up night one can only try and take the necessary steps to avoid having to give up 18 years of your own freedom to care of a little bastard. Be weird, be safe, and most importantly, be sure to not produce any fallas babies.

Don’t just take our word for it, come check out this lit af experience for yourself.
