Feb 5th 2009 11:34AM Kraig,
I was sent your blog feed from someone who knows you in Austin. It turns out that we are going to be on the same boat this spring and she said that I NEED to be a reader of your adventure blog because it will inspire me to take more explorer trips. I am indeed hooked on your advednture blog as it is inspiring me to check out places (like Africa) that I would not have thought about, so keep it up! But when I read this piece on Austin I was a little shocked because it did not have the same inspiration to the story. It took her promising a hike to a secret location, some Friday the 13th parties and a ride out to Lockhart as a means to lure me to Austin to inspire me to come here to visit (that and she is going to be my travel guide for the weekend which I though was a huge bonus.)
Long point short. I hope that you keep up the good work with your travel-adventure writing because that is what inspires you and it shows.
Feb 5th 2009 10:27AM People this is a great deal for anyone thinking about visiting Africa. As a frequent visitor to South Africa I have flown the airline many times. It was interesting that I came across this feed along with one from another blog site in which they had inside info from Trip Advisor on the their Best of 2009. If you have not had a chance to check it out you should! They have a bargain section that is broken down by country that is very useful along with other categories.
Feb 5th 2009 10:04AM This link came across my feed this morning along with yours Scott and I thought you may want to take a look at it. Thanks for always keeping me up to date about places to go!
Jan 7th 2009 1:40PM People are stupid at times and yes we try to blame what we do to others on outside factors. But with that said the airlines need to take some measure of control when serving people alocohol on planes as it can be dangerous to other people. As a frequent flyer myself I know that before I board a long flight I tend to prepare myself for what lies ahead and it also helps me to lossen up to sit and socialize with the people that surround me on the plane for 8 to 10 hours.
To ban alcohol on flights would be a bad move at this time. As someone who is Irish (and yes I get it all the time about drinking) I tend to think that we need a little lubing up before a long flight, but it is about personal responsibility and we need to act like grown ups in all aspects of our lives!
Jan 7th 2009 1:26AM It was a Thomas Cook Charter flight and they were on holiday! Those charters are built for fun and they encourage that type of behavior. I know I have been one of them for spring break!
But hooligans? Pish Posh try getting on a charter flight heading down to BVI, now there is a good time and I know for a fact that the last time I was on that flight (as the only Irish person) more people than not were getting down in the aisles and I was not one one them. You want shenanigans? Try going to Fort Lauderdale on spring break or Cabo, now there is some serious destruction for you!
Jan 7th 2009 1:11AM Could it be that his hot chocolate was spiked with a little too much peppermint schanpps if this was his second time?
But as one of the newest areas to open up in Colo, perhaps they need to see to the safety of the people that are skiing there.
Still not sure if I agreed with the opening of this resort as it might endanger the lynx (mountain cat re-introduced into the wilds of Colo) and as a result was one of the most debated openings that Colo had seen in a long time. Perhaps the reason why a eco-terrorist attack was carried out on the mountain and led to a 10+ million dollar incident in 1998.
Dec 31st 2008 11:19AM Green travel I am afraid to tell you has been around for decades, we just got away from it. Remember the days when we all back packed around Europe after college because we were trying to find our inspiration? Well it is actually making a comeback for adults. Many people (especially ones that work free lance) have been utilizing this type of travel to motivate and inspire their work. I came across a link to Marie Jarvin's book "Stalking the Wild Dik Dik" which chronicled her misadventures across Africa quite interesting. Not ever been to Africa myself I found myself thinking that I NEED to put it on my short list of places to visit after reading the book and her blog. As many people these days concerned about the environment I too want to make sure that my imprint is minor so the information on the backpacking circuit was very helpful and yes it made me think about the good ole days of backpacking travel and seeing the world before I had to grow up.
