Good morning, sir, and and congratulations on your new restaurant!

Thank you! You’re my first customers.

We’d like your finest table.

You must sit over here, then. It has our very best view!

Thank you. View of what?

Why, these long metal things with wooden cross-ties. It’s quite a phenomenon – they seem to stretch out forever! Plus, if you enjoy background music you can hear a whistle off in the distance!

Hey, did you see who just knocked?

Blog Guy, when you travel to an exotic world capital, where’s the first place you go? An art museum? A cathedral? A celebrated restaurant?

Get out your cash, honey, it’s the famous robbers!

Blog Guy, I’m planning a month-long trip to China. It’s the dream trip of a lifetime. I’m going all over by bus, and I want all the tips you can give me. Give me all the insider stuff, rich with tiny details!

My ticket out of this dump?

Blog Guy, I hear your readership is getting huge. I guess we can look forward to your Oddly Enough blog for some time, huh?

Last tango in Hyderabad…

Blog Guy, I’m a man who LOVES ballroom dancing. I’m taking a trip to India, and I wondered where I might enjoy an elegant evening over there?

Take a Willy Wonka vacation!

Blog Guy, I was amazed by your item about the two Taj Mahals. I’m planning a trip to exotic Machu Picchu. How many of those are there?

A brand new Taj, it’s no mirage!

Blog Guy, I need your travel advice. I’m planning a trip to the Taj Mahal.

Sure. Which one?

Excuse me?

Well, there’s the old one in India, and then there’s a brand new $60 million replica in Bangladesh. It’s about 800 miles from the old, worn-out one.

Glad gladiators and merrier terriers!

Blog Guy, I know that President-Elect Barack Obama brought diverse groups together. What’s the oddest coalition you’ve seen fromĀ  the election?

Grab the kids, we’re takin’ a stupid trip!

This blog’s travel section has kind of a cute twist. It caters to folks who want a good reason to stay home. That job just got lots easier, what with a new attraction in Australia.
