Happy Blogaversary To Me!

February 13, 2010

I just realized it’s been one whole year since I started this wee travel blog! Looking back, here are some of my favorite posts / memories:

OK…it was hard to pick just a few!

Whoa, news of actual snakes mutiny on a plane! A flight leaving from New Orleans to L.A. was apparently delayed – for 3 hours – when the pilots got stuck in celebratory Superbowl parade traffic.  A rumor began that the pilots may have imbibed, and some passengers began demanding that the pilots take a sobriety test.  This caused more delays and eventually ended in a canceled flight.  I’m not making this up.

Do you think anything has changed in 75 years?

What would you do in this situation?  Rally with your breathalyzer-loving passengers, sit back and be quiet while the maelstrom works itself out, or just pop your Ambien a little earlier than you expected and hope you’re in L.A. when you wake up?

Well, at Least SOMEONE is Traveling…

My friend Peter is currently in Australia, and doing all of the things I wish I did when I was there (or didn’t have the courage / money to do…).  I urge you to check out his recent post on the Blue Mountains, rappelling down a waterfall, and riding canyon rivers…pretty damn cool!!!  I am jealous of his adventure, but luckily I can imagine I was there via his blog.
