It was one of those nights when you just don't feel like going home. It was 2am in the morning and my mate (Marcel) and I decided to have another after coming across a gas station on our way back home. We decided to sit ourselves down at a fenced off building site and have a nice and relaxing drink.Marcel Santos
My wife and two kids were eagerly looking forward to a luxurious night rocking along in a sleeper cabin on the train to Hanoi. But a truck rollover on the mountain pass from the mist-shrouded village of Sapa in North-West Vietnam soon threatened that treat.John Ahern
My family moved around a lot when I was a kid so I was often forced into making friends quickly. I became a bit of a target when I moved to New Mexico. Being a brash, pale Australian kid stands out in that environment. Soon enough, some tough kids started picking on me after school.Andy Thompson
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.
