Dec 15th 2009 10:04AM My favorite travel gadget is my iPhone. Maps, music, news, and games all in my pocket.
Jul 1st 2009 4:36PM This explains why the security guys at KTM tried to convince me that it was illegal to take Indian Rupees out of Nepal. I played dumb and they eventually gave up.
May 28th 2009 1:38PM Don't forget about Big Bone Lick state park in Kentucky... I recall seeing that on family trips as a kid... always got a chuckle. http://parks.ky.gov/findparks/recparks/bb/
May 15th 2009 9:36AM I hate to sound like an airline apologist, but saying that the airlines are making "extra" money is quite misleading. The airlines have simply shifted some of the price of a ticket to baggage fees. Instead of everyone on the plane paying $10-20 more for their ticket, people who choose to travel with more bags are paying $15-25 more. As someone who usually travels light, I appreciate this.
The fees also create an incentive to travel light. Weight plays a big role in how much fuel a plane burns. Less fuel = less emissions = happier environment.
So yes, the fees are annoying because they are a change from what we were used to, but in the end, they reward those of us who happen to pack light.
Oct 7th 2008 12:12PM I'd use the ticket to travel for school. We go to New Delhi, Shanghai, and Brussels. I'm sure my bank account (read: student loans) would appreciate a free trip.
Aug 25th 2008 11:03AM By far, my favorite camping experience is paddling the boundary waters in Canada. Going through customs on a lake, depending on nature for food (outside of the "survival" food we brough), pitch black at night, complete silence, beautiful scenery. Just awesome.
