Apr 6th 2011 7:39PM Like all good travel stories, it always end with the same moral, "S*** happens".
Sorry to hear you got robbed in Ecuador, I was constantly paranoid during my visit to Quito as well hearing many stories like this and luckily, nothing happened. And like you said, it is a beautiful city and well worth the risk. I'm glad you can still appreciate its beauty and don't come even close to accusing or stereotyping an entire city population.
I hope this doesn't discourage people from visiting, but only encourages them to be more prepared and cautious when they visit.
Jan 29th 2011 1:47PM Is there any way to rescind your proposal? Maybe this doesn't bode well for my chances, but I wrote a little blurb about my Qualifications and hit Save and Next thinking that the next page would be where I would submit my proposed story.
Instead, it submitted my Qualifications as my entry. While I hope it was a well-written qualifications, I don't think anyone who reads or works at Gadling would care about that.
Is it okay to submit under a different account if I can't rescind?

Sep 20th 2010 9:43PM If I win, I'm going to first use it on my upcoming trip to Ecuador when I go to the Amazon and Andes highlands, two places I probably don't want to get lost in.
Jul 21st 2010 6:46PM I ate something once in Atlanta, it was probably badly cooked fried chicken, that had me doubled over in the CNN building public bathrooms...
Jul 7th 2010 10:48PM I love taking photos of food I eat when I travel. So many to choose from!
The most interesting I have on photo is Crocodile kabobs I had in Darwin, Australia at the Mindil Beach Outdoor Market. This came from a vendor stand called the Roadkill Cafe.
May 13th 2010 11:33PM Great list!
I know he had a very minor cameo, but Rob McElhenney from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has appeared twice on Lost. Definitely shold be on the list as well!
May 10th 2010 9:27AM Not necessarily true. Phil probably has asked eliminated teams for their thoughts in the past, but no one probably said anything interesting enough to make it on air. I'm sure Phil has had extensive mat chats with all present while waiting around. If the teams involved were more gracious and congratulatory, I'm sure it would've never aired.
Apr 14th 2010 11:40AM I'm hoping to see Central or South America. I've had a goal of reaching all 7 continents before I'm 30, and South America is next on my list.
Would love to visit Guyana with a friend who was born and raised there.
Will "settle" for a GAP volunteer tour in El Salvador.
Apr 9th 2010 3:11AM Actually, last season (Samoa) and this season (HvV) filmed back-to-back. So none of the contestants had seen how Russell played as his season hadn't even aired yet when the game began.
However, you think taking a guy from the latest season to fill one of the All-Star slots and putting him on the VILLAINS tribe on top of that would be a bit of a red flag that he was probably pretty notorious...
