Chinese Rapping Pig Swine Flu Video
Love the Chinese for their attempts to warn travelers about the swine flu. But can’t they afford a native English speaker to proofread?
But when you have a pig kicking game in a freestyle rap, not everything gets translated. Don’t think Jay-Z wrote the copy for this…MUST CLICK
From loyal reader Debbie. Thanks!
Hong Kong’s airport is very cool. Lots of clear directions and glass everywhere. That new Doha airport is sorely needed. On my way from Hong Kong to South Africa, the stopover was in Doha. And friends it is nothing to brag about. Let’s hope they upgrade the food too. The worst airport food I have EVER had was at Doha. Retched!
I didn’t have time, but I would love to have hit the casino in the Amsterdam airport. Maybe they figure they’ll make you lighter for the flight by relieving you of your money before you get on the plane!
Make sure everything gets stamped when you leave a country. As this writer found out, you could get a MAJOR hassle if you return and the paperwork is not all up to date. A lot of times many of these problems can be made to go away with some money put in someone’s hand. You didn’t hear that from me though…
Great site for multiple cities around the world that shows you directions from point A to point B via the local public transportation system. For instance for London you can get directions from Buckingham Palace to London Bridge via the Tube. In Paris the Eiffel Tower to the Cathedral of Notre Dame. For those of you who see subway and bus maps as a bunch of incoherent colored lines, this is a great help.
Skip the expensive cabs and taxis and hop on mass transit. Save the environment too…
The dream to be a travel writer is not all it is cracked up to be. There is monotony and annoying things in every job. Even if you are paid to fly all over the world.
Funny, interesting videos, some of which that I have referenced before. Some of the ads on the page may not be safe for work, but the videos are fine.
Website that details all the sneaky fees with over 90 airlines listed.
As much as I advocate travel, I don’t ignore that there are risks. Just because you’re in a tropical paradise with white sand beaches, clear blue waters and smiling people doesn’t mean that everyone is looking out for your best interests. It is tiring to keep your defensive guard up, even on holiday, but you still need to.
Ok my thing is is this. You were sentenced to DEATH and got pardoned. You haven’t been back in years but you want to go back now to warn others about the dangers of drug trafficking. Why go back now and press your luck?
If that was me, I wouldn’t be near Thailand. I would not even want my plane to land for a stopover.
Dubai has been on a wishlist for many people. Better get in now, with the lower prices and the threat of economic meltdown threatening the country.
Different ways to give the gift of travel. Included are language lessions, City Pass and the like. I’d include the ROUND THE WORLD travel e-book package by yours truly.
