News, but not the serious kind
Flap faster, honey!
Blog Guy, you give great travel advice, and I need some. I just bought tickets on a budget Tibetan airline. They were very cheap, and now I’m wondering what to expect in the way of quality.
Um, why do you ask?
That airline doesn’t really own any planes. They use a more theoretical method of travel in which passengers get on a very fast horse, which gallops at breathtaking speed toward a mountain precipice. When it gets there, the horse stops suddenly.
And what happens to the passengers?
If you really don’t know, then rent some Looney Toons cartoons. I recommend Daffy Duck in “Himalaya Shmimalaya!”
So does this method of air travel actually work?
