The Bold Postman

It was a sunny day as I walked along in central Glasgow doing some light shopping. I passed a postman talking to what I assume must be his friend. He says to his friend on this pleasant summery afternoon, and I quote, "So I just went for a big fucking shite".

Bride Blown Away

Down by the water in Kelowna is a great location for a wedding so it was no surprise to see one there last week. Summer here is great, the sun is always out and the views are magnificent. This day was no exception, well apart from the extreme wind that made for an entertaining ceremony.

Mission to Moscow: Freezing, Huge, Dusty, Singing, and Drinking

A continuous traffic jam, big furious men hunched over their steering wheels, pounding the horns of tiny decrepit cars. At times the air is rancid with exhaust.

A carefully constructed sandy beach in an ancient arched cellar, where pale hipsters in cheap imitation Ray Bans drank warm vodka shots from plastic cups.

By Location

Why is it called bytestories?

This is a place for "byte-sized" stories and there is a 1500 character (about 250 words) limit for two main reasons. Firstly, we want you to know that "War and Peace" isn't required to leave your mark. Secondly, it takes about 2 minutes to read each story meaning you can head here whenever you want a quick (and entertaining) read.
