For some reason or another Moody75
just got around to tossing this shot into our Gadling Flickr pool. Without the tags I probably wouldn't have guessed this was taken at DTW airport in Detroit. What strikes me the most is the number of people in wheelchairs the photographer managed to capture. From the movement to the colors, I'd say it is a pretty gnarly shot.
It's Saturday night, the mood is right and so it is time to hit the streets of Shibuya - right? These night time city lights were captured by sarah.and.michael
while hanging around Japan in 2005 sometime. Lucky them and nice shot!
Some of these are still pretty recent posts that you SHOULD NOT have missed if you've been a good little Gadling reader checking in everyday. In the event you somehow slipped and missed a day or two here are five worthy of review.5. Only in OZ: Irwin's Whale Watching Boat:
Still feeling melancholy over the death of Steve Irwin? Don't! Chances are he wouldn't want you to be and if you find yourself heading to OZ soon this featured activity may be your chance to remember Steve and learn a lot about whales which he loved just as much as the famed crocs.
4. A Canadian in Beijing: Vegan Mandarin Language Survival Guide:
After reading this little language survival guide Ember whipped up, my head is full of useful new words to help out at the dinner table in China. I'm not vegan, but it never hurts to know.3. Swimming with Manatees: Life in the Slow Zone:
When my friend invited me to swim with manatees the first time I laughed not really knowing what they were or thinking she was serious. After hearing how fun her trip was and this tale by Gadling guest blogger, Dolores Parker, I wish I were closer to Crystal River, FL to swim with them myself. If you're searching for fun ways to hang with the family in Florida this one is sure to please all.
2. Traveling Tips from a Backpacking Geek:
No matter how prepared you think you are for your big trip ahead looking over some one else's tips never hurts. Here are a few ideas from a backpacking geek on how to save digital photos and important documents from being lost forever.1. Hilarious Hand-Written Airline Complaint:
In need of a good laugh? This has to be one of the funniest complaints I've ever seen in regards to that horrible seat next to the lavatory that some 'poor soul' gets stuck with on a completely packed flight. In this situation the poor individual decided to share the experience with the airlines in a laugh-out-loud hand-written complaint with pictures. A MUST READ.
In all my days spent on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, I never once saw this turtle or a sunrise in Mokolua
. I have said many times that my days on Oahu are done, but this shot here makes me wonder if I might be missing something more. Thanks to Rob Webster
for plugging this one into the Gadling Flickr pool. Very nice shot!
File this one under: Mazatlan Food Porn
This shot comes from my own gallery
of Mexican goodies and was taken moments before satisfying my personal street food craving in Mazatlan. While fried bananas covered in condensed milk and caramel is hardly frightening, one can never tell what exotic belly dance type effect foreign food will have on the bowels while vacationing. I survived! Today's self-promoting POTD also comes with a reminder to check out this gallery of Weird Things People Eat Around the World
and this plug on avoiding side effects of bad street food
The week is out of here, but before you hit the town or one of Kelly's many book recommendations for the first official weekend of summer make sure you give these plugs one more spin.5. A Peek into the Future of Dubai:
From the sound of things Dubai will be a circus of exotic hotels and filled with many more amusements to tickle your fancy before you can say ab-ra-ca-dab-ra. If you're like me and you hope one day to see it without all the crazy tourism development you better make plans to go now. Otherwise cloud hotels could be fun.4. A Quest for a Cheap Car Rental:
Summer is here and it is time to hit the road. If you are in need of tips to help you save a buck or more try this one.
3. World Nomad/LP Filmmaker Scholarship:
Here's an incredible opportunity for budding filmmakers with a desire to travel around the world. The scholarship application deadline closes somewhere around August 15th so hurry young travelers.2. Travel Stories That Are Rated "R":
Okay, so these travelers tales AREN'T for everyone. Some of them like Willy mentioned are very off and bizarre even for us here at Gadling. Should your curiosity get you going and you wonder what happened in Vegas or Paris or even Cape Town that didn't stay where it needed to be, check a few of these stories out.
1. Alaska without the Cruise Ship Part 17: Some Final Thoughts:
Neil's fantastic Alaska dispatch has come to a close, but never fear! You can still revisit each part by clicking on the fancy icon to the right or the link right above which will allow you to explore them all over again and again and again until one day you finally decide to go on your own. The pictures of Alaska are great, but you got to admit it looks a whole lot better in person.
Sepia tones bring something so magical and so different to photos that I couldn't help, but to choose this one from the Gadling Flickr pool for today's POTD. Taken by patrodz
while in Ireland
one day not long ago I assume, this one deserves a round of sound for sure.

Here's a beautiful shot of some very lovely and alluring California coastline
. I've lived in California for roughly eight collective years and I still haven't seen such a scene. Looks like I'll have to do like ll casuela ll
did and spend some time up around Big Sur to take shots at a coastline like this one.

1. A Canadian in Beijing: Shannon's Wings:
Ember pays homage to a close friend who committed suicide and walks us through the details of an accidental bird sanctuary visit. The piece is touching, beautiful and thought-provoking. Hands down one of the best for the week...
For a photo drive-by shooting I'd say this one out of Lisboa is pretty fun, funky and fresh. I can't tell if the person seen is power walking or on a light jog around the town, but I'd love to be in their sneakers. Doesn't a stroll through Lisboa sound nice? Nice work t3mujin
and thanks for tucking this one into the Gadling Flickr pool
