Jan 25th 2011 10:03AM Many thanks for highlighting the shot, much appreciated! I always enjoy visiting schools when the opportunity arises. In this case I stayed with the class for about 30 minutes or so, helping the teacher with the day's lesson. Her command of English was very basic, appreciated the assistance, and gave me an open invitation to stop back again anytime.
Nov 10th 2010 2:40PM A much-belated thanks for selecting the pic and the blog link! And no, I didn't get around to trying any dog dishes.
Nov 10th 2010 2:33PM Shanghai is already a kind of Disneyland even without the theme park.
Jul 24th 2009 9:26AM I too have learned to simply avoid Ryanair. As others have alluded to, there are plenty of other low-cost carriers in Europe, which all things considered, are ultimately better or similar deals, but much more convenient. Many of their destinations are laughable (if your destination is a major city, for example). Beauvais has little to do with Paris, just like Venice and Treviso; there are lots of similar examples. Some VERY simple research beforehand goes a VERY long way.
May 1st 2009 9:09AM Wow. I never realized so many FoxNews watching dittoheads read Gadling as well.
Mar 22nd 2009 10:45AM Karen, thanks so much for the mention! Now I have to start blogging again. :)

Jan 16th 2008 5:35PM Agree with above. NEVER SHOOT IT! In Slovenia, it's generally referred to as Slivovec, or Slivovka by the way, and some of the home made varieties are much better than the bottled crap available in most bars/cafes. Rakija (the word) is more Serb/Croat/Southern Balkan in origin.
Jan 12th 2008 11:10AM $50 seems ridiculously steep for something that can just as adequately be taken care of with dirty laundry. I always pack wine. Bubblewrap (readily available in many places) first, then three or four plastic bags, then wrapped ins dirty swaddling clothes. Happily haven't had anything break yet.
As for TSA-Friendly... seems like a contradiction in terms.
Oct 24th 2007 4:50PM I think it can be strongly argued that in this particular case, there really isn't any "journalistic obligation" whatsoever. Writing about such places/experiences is probably more ego-driven than anything else. Best to follow the advice proposed by your headline. (Ok, you can tell a friend or two...)
