Are You Tired? Cuz You’ve Been Flying Through My Mind All Night

Lately, we’ve all been bombarded with silly airline promotions (see Ryanair, Ryanair, or Ryanair). This time, love is in the air, and the Kiwi’s are stepping up to the plate. Just recently, Air New Zealand announced a new “matchmaking flight” on selected overnight flights from L.A. to Auckland. Festivities begin online, with their own social media […]

Friday, October 23, 2009

For some reason one of the things I remember most about Capri (other than the beautiful sunsets, quaint streets, and maniacal Vespa drivers), is the fact that when I was there, the rumor around town was that Keanu Reeves had just stayed on the island.

Pink is the new black. That’s what the trend setters are saying, right? Honestly, fashion sense said goodbye to me long ago, so I’ll stick to sharing news coming out of Kenya’s Nakuru National Park. That way no one will be mixing argyle with horizontal stripes (unless that’s cool now). Described as “greatest bird spectacle […]

When Has Your Meal Had A Story Like This?

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

So much more than the “leeks, onions, garlic, and other greens” that swim amidst the odd presence of sliced hotdogs and Spam, one of Korea’s favorite dishes, Budae Jjigae, is a stew with a backstory not likely associated with most meals, as TheExpeditioner.com’s own Jon Wick finds out in this piece.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

O.K., we’ve all been there: the nightmare transatlantic flight with the bad food that makes it even worse. Brutal, right? This Travelocity online survey was conducted recently (the results can be found here) to finally let the cat out of the bag as to who the worst airline passengers really are.
