Words fail me.
and then threw my computer through the window.
seems aware of the well-treaded route he's taking. didn't come across as overly-pretentious.
Otherwise you should join him.
just seems like every other 19-year old who goes travelling.
'lives on the top of a hill in north london', writes for skins, and 'works with some really lovely people' that's upsetting you so much.
sure he's probably intolerable, but most people are so y'know...whatever.
I can't see why The Grauniad would think anyone would give a shit what some well-off teenager does with his gap year. Unless he's related to Alan Rusbridger which isn't totally unlikely.
a travel writer for The Guardian.
What a surprise.
My brother's friend got a very low 2:2 in some useless degree and wanted to work in the 'meeja'. She was studying 'PR' so we questioned whether she was best placed to enter this field.....'It doesn't matter, my parents are both in the industry'.
She's a researcher for Channel 4 now.
Glad to see the Guardian is as cynical as the rest of them, I fucking hate those pious self-righteous yet utterly hypocritical champagne socialist cunts.
one of the comments says "Who on the Guardian is he related to then?"
because theyput crap like this up, and the comments board is overloaded with people going "This is bullshit"
he gets at least one point for mentioning the 134. i love the 134, heading north

February 14 11:07I'll give it a miss, yeah? I've already got Nathan Barley on DVD.
Offensive? Unsuitable? Report this comment.
Fuck me though, The Beach was published a decade ago, isn't it time these pricks found somewhere else to congregate. Grozny or Kabul, perhaps?
Every no good punk kid goes to India on his parents' dime.
If he did a gap year in Siberia, that would be interesting.
Beats DiS hands down
why it's so terrible? He's basically like any other gap year student and doesn't seem that much of a twat. Admittedly it's probably not worthy of a Guardian blog but still...
Also made me realise I don't understand teenagers.
Skins was written by spotty A-level students. What inane tripe. I ALMOST feel sorry for the guy for the beating he's taking on the comments board, and I can't believe the guardian didn't see it coming.
"I will find you and you will not be so skinny after I've fed you your jeans Maximillian. You are everything I hate about everything and the Guardian should not be able to ever hear the end of this" is brilliant.
I can't wait 'til he blogs up the night where he gets unwittingly blown by a she-male and pimp-slapped around for his travellers cheques.
go some way to restoring my faith in humanity.
I'm gonna do central america and then drive up the west coast of america. Yeah.
because I want to do the same thing.
do you think he will fancy me as well?
Oooooh matron, abandon thread!

February 14 13:46The rise of the idiots!
I think it's a well Mexico idea. Peace and f--king Max.
You could make it a charity gig to raise money for the rebuilding of Camden market yeah?. Where are the hords of trilby wearing tits going to buy their skinny jeans now? Skinny jeans that are bought *already dirty*.
I look forward to next weeks episode, hopefully involving a close encounter for our youthful protaganist with some grizzled and over-familiar border security force looking for the party-stash.
The right-on Guardian (social mobility, yeah?, meritocracy, yeah?, peace and fucking, yeah?) allows a kid with no discernible journalistic talent or indeed any writing ability whatsoever a blog in which to write his dull little collection of cliches concerning his forthcoming self-indulgent 'travel' adventure in *gasps* Thailand..........
Oh and he just happens to be the son of their travel writer!!!11
Does it offend you? Yeah.
The comments alone make me hope to god that this torrid little episode plays out for the duration of his 'adventure'.
Do you think it's just some kind of next level Chris Morris thing?
"Hi traveleditor (automated machine thingy), I am a tw*t with nothing to say or contribute to the world. I shop at TopMan and listen to The Killers. I also like going to festivals and drinking Magners. Can I have a blog?"
BECAUSE I'M WACKY LIKE THAT!!!!
hope he pokes me back i hope he pokes me back hope he pokes me back i hope he pokes me back hope he pokes me back i hope he pokes me back hope he pokes me back i hope he pokes me back
That if you can't see what's wrong with Max and his blog, you may be.....how shall I put this? Ermm.........a bit of a wally..........like Max.
doesn't think that Max is obviously an absolutely poisonous gonk.
he makes me want to carve out my eyes
