News, but not the serious kind
You get one piece of carrion luggage…
Blog Guy, I know you’re a respected travel writer and I need some advice. I’m going to Kazakhstan next week, and…..
Do you mind if I ask why?
That’s a funny story. I got it mixed-up with Scotland, and now it’s too late to change. So what’s the best domestic airline for getting from place to place over there?
There is one small one that’s kind of unusual. They tie a huge eagle on your wrist, put you on a horse that gallops around 30 miles per hour then abruptly stops at the edge of a steep abyss, and the eagle takes over.
Are the lavatories clean?
I don’t think you understand. Screaming eagles with razor-sharp talons… Thundering hooves….
Looks like they have three seats across. I hope I don’t get that middle seat. I don’t like those.
Frozen tundra… Deadman’s Curve…Circling vultures…Two-mile drop…
Is the food good?
Uh, yeah. It’s great. Bon voyage….
