    You’re getting all sentimental. Is that beta?

    Def. true for me. As much as I hate to admit it. I am in Germany now, but it seems like the more time in Europe I spend or revisiting places I keep getting less out of it.

    Good to remember this as decide to go back to Colombia or move onto Rio or SEAsia.

    It’s just like fucking a woman for the first time and then going back to her. The 2nd time is never sweeter and always less enjoyable because the newest isn’t there – the excitement of the unknown.

    And if you want to be really secret don’t include products in the video that can easily give away your location.

  • JM

    reading between the lines, it’s pretty obvious where you are right now to any regular reader.

  • thecaptainpower

    “If everything is working, never leave” TRUE, but also look at the flipside “if it’s not working, get the fuck out of there”…

    Don’t stick around with the same routine when things aren’t working for you ex: bad job,horrible gf, city, etc etc etc

  • defguy

    Roosh I understand Vlogs are the next step in blogging but is there any way you can include transcripts or at lease a short written summary of what you talk about in your videos for people with hearing loss or whom speak english as a 2nd or 3rd language?


  • greenlander

    C’mon Roosh, doesn’t the label on that bottle of vodka give away your location? Or is it a fake prop to lead us astray?

  • Anonymous

    I just saw Argo last night. Ben Affleck stole your look. (link to trailer)

  • The Chrome Microphone

    Isn’t it obvious that Roosh wanted everyone to know where he was?


    Dude didn’t you make a post about that country drying up while you were there?

    Seemed that it was great early on, with the main girl being a big part of that, then it went downhill a bit and just wasn’t the same

    Definitely agree with your central point but you may have been expecting too much going back and focussed too hard on the early days

    There’ll be another country like that out there. You found it the first time

  • Brandon

    What you’re saying in the video may have some merit to it, but I think you’re the kind of person with an insatiable desire to conquer or accomplish something and move on to the next task. Being back to where ever it is you are is old news now. Luckily, there are an infinite number of things you could set out to do.

  • Newberry

    Besides the Vodka, you have money and a European light switch next to the door.

  • Amanda

    Oh Rooshie boy you are back to POLAND. It is written in Polish on the vodka bottle, and that is an apartment in Poznan. We all knew you cannot stay away from POLAND 😉

  • trs

    Wrong, he’s clearly in Brazil. The paint on the wall is a Sherwin-Williams o/w 1145-C, which was only sold in Brazil between 2003 and 2007. The vodka is just there to mislead you.

  • wolfen

    the bottle placed there is a decoy a red herring u dummies

  • anon

    Agree with Amanda, Roosh has a crush on Poland. But apparently things aren’t clicking as well this time around. It’s the middle of winter, and it’s snowing. You could be hanging with RioNomad and 20Nation in the sun, getting some boss handmade suits made.

  • Kuba

    Heh, it’s a Polish vodka Roosh :)
    Wellcome back :)

  • KA

    I must say interior looks like typical for country you try to convince us (liquor, notes) you are currently in, but I smell some trick here.

  • Amanda

    No trick in that, that’s why he even writes ironically “secret location” :))

    You cannot buy that Zubrowka vodka outside of Poland, and I don’t think he made special order and waited 3 weeks for that vodka bottle that you can find in any polish shop.

    Even the apartment is designed very polish like :)

  • Ben

    All your posts are about your lack of happiness dude. Entering into a mid-life crisis of sorts? Depression? It’s hard to hear. Many people find genuine happiness, here’s hoping you find yours.

  • jesse

    thing about happiness is you don’t want to stay too long either.

    watching it deteriorate is bad in a whole other way than returning and finding it gone.

  • Anonymous

    Pretty sure you guys are missing Roosh’s dry, Persian sense of humor with the vodka and money in plain sight.

  • Giovonny

    Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. I like it when you get philosophical. The playboy-philosopher is an interesting perspective. And, one that most men will listen too. We are sexual creatures before we are anything.

  • OldHornDog

    Guys – I hate to go all Zen on your asses but true happiness is inside you. You can travel the planet all your life and if you never manage to find that one thing inside that matters to you then it’ll merely be a a series of fleeting experiences.

    Alas, happiness is not true and it is not constant. As human beings we have a unique ability to adjust to almost any condition – good or bad. It keeps us going when things are tough but unfortunately it also keeps us going when things are extremely peachy. Money doesn’t make you happy, all the poon in the world doesn’t either. Only YOU can make yourself happy.

    Here’s something someone else posted in this comment section a while ago – I think it says everything that is to be said about life and happiness:

    Fill your bowl to the brim
    and it will spill.
    Keep sharpening your knife
    and it will blunt.
    Chase after money and security
    and your heart will never unclench.
    Care about people’s approval
    and you will be their prisoner.

    Do your work, then step back.
    The only path to serenity.

    @Twenty – you cracked me UP!!

  • Marusya

    Doesnt matter, where he is! The point is that he returned to find his happiness as he thought and got nothing!:(((He is sad and smetimental!But reminded us in time that we shall enjoy every moment of our life and appreciate everything that makes us happy!

  • Mark

    I remember a pretty wise young priest quoting (someone, I don’t remember who) as follows in a sermon: “Don’t think your happiness needs to be in some far off land, or over the horizon. Dig deep in the narrow ground you’ve been given”.

  • Hawk

    Following in any road to Utopia leads to nowhere; you just find yourself in circular path and at some point at the begining point of that circle where you first started.

    So I’m guessing you are back in Poland for a second time and its not the same as before for some reason. This happened to me as well in Mexico.

    And I agree with the remark that you don’t want to be hanging around as happy moments deteriorate either. Everything in life is a fleeting noment.

    And yes true happiness is from within, and ironically enough that is easier said than done.

  • Michael

    Ha! I love the bitter stomach vodka in the background; that’s all one needs, my friend… though I do prefer Zubrowka.

    I’m guessing the vodka was a prop and you are wishing you could go back to how it was in Poland

  • pico

    Without sadness there wouldn’t be happiness….or in this case a slump.

    He mite have to take himself away from the game for a bit….its called balance!

    all of us are in it from time to time.

  • KA

    It’s Zołądkowa Gorzka… not Zubrowka.

  • Brian Mark

    If you’re talking about a women, you can never go back. If you’re talking about a place, it can be good one time, mediocre the next time, and good again the third time: Ukraine.

    I seldom leave great girls. I could have traveled to a lot more countries, but when I find a great woman I believe in enjoying my special time to the max!


    by the vodka bottle i can tell you’re in poland roosh….lets meet up, i admire your writing and blog….warsaw

    happiness comes from relationships. lust can get in the way of a meaningful relationship. you have to think with your heart and mind not just your penis. sex can mean something if you don’t treat it as a sport and you understand it’s meant for bonding two human beings so they can one day have kids and stay together to raise them. it’s the right thing to do and what your parents did for you and you should be grateful and give back. not just for the sake of doing what’s right but also for the sake of your happiness which will come from acting in accordance with what’s natural for you, reasonable, and good. welcome back in PL

  • directm

    Hello Roosh,
    I have question for you. You have traveled half the world by now, can you name the country where the men were the happiest? I’m making the assumption that the happiest men have the best wives/girlfriends.

    I have tons of experience with Slavic women, they look absolutely smashing but Slavic men look like coal miners from Mordor…I know their women have a hand in this.

    I know there is a world “Happiness Index” but I believe the male side of the story is diluted by female input. So I leave it to you Roosh the red pill war correspondent to tell your readers the “story behind the story”.

  • Zenmooncow

    I disagree in the sense that when you engage in the right behaviours from when you where happiest , joyous even, you do regain some of what you had.

    The mistake is thinking it was a certain place or person or situation and not the behaviours are responsible for the happiness.

    This error in judgment is called “place preference” in rodent studies. It’s not really a mistake ,we want to be where good things happen, It’s the belief that good things only happen at that spot that is bad.

    The Coolidge effect may be at play here too.
