Lots of crazy things seem to happen on planes.

Early in 2016 Delta flight attendants got into a fight and the plane had to make an unscheduled landing. Some passengers like to bring strange animals on flights.

A man even opened the emergency exit on a plane to help a mom with screaming child. Continue reading Woman Opens Emergency Exit of Taxiing Plane, Jumps Out

I’m sure that we’ve all seen those silly photos where with a little trickery it appears your friend is holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa or kissing the Sphynx in Egypt.

While they are a bit ridiculous, I’m guilty of trying this out in the past and it can be a lot of fun! (Also, who am I to judge? I do jump for photos all over the world!)

I recently came across some amazing travel photos which remind me of the photos I’ve described above, they’re just a whole lot better. Continue reading You NEED To See These Instagram Photos

Yellowstone Grizzly That Killed Hiker Put Down

Not the bear that was put down

Yesterday I wrote about an interesting question about bear attacks in the wild.

The post was written due to the recent tragic death of a hiker killed by a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park last week. It was stated that deadly encounters between bears and humans in the park was rare.

After a bear and her cubs were caught close to where the man’s remains were found, (depending on DNA tests) the bear would be put down if it was the one that killed the man.

Is it fair that a bear living in its own habitat, the wild is being held responsible for acting like a wild bear? Well that depends. Continue reading Yellowstone Grizzly That Killed Hiker Put Down

In 2017 there will be a new worlds largest hotel, located in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

According to CNN the Abraj Kudai will be the world’s largest by room count. It will have close to 40% more rooms than the current top dog, the MGM Grand located in Las Vegas.

I found it kind of funny to see that the current hotel with the most hotel rooms is located in Sin City while the place that will take the crown will in Islam’s holiest city… Continue reading World’s Largest Hotel Will Have 10,000 Rooms

I just came across a great reason to visit the Hunan province of China.

The world’s highest and longest glass bottom bridge is set to open in Zhangjiajie National Park this July!

Back in 2010 I had a chance to visit the Grand Canyon Skywalk during a trip to Vegas. The Skywalk was an awesome experience, offering amazing views. China’s bridge sounds quite similar just a whole lot longer and higher up from the ground. Continue reading World’s Highest, Longest Glass Bottom Bridge Opening In China

Where is Anthony Bourdain Going on Parts Unknown

I’ve long been a fan of Anthony Bourdain but I tend to go back and forth when it comes to watching his shows.

Since Bourdain left The Travel Channel for CNN I’ve only caught a few episodes of his newer series Parts Unknown. The thing is, since I rarely watch CNN I tend to forget when his shows is actually on!

Overall, I really enjoy Bourdain’s travel- food themed take on locations both at home and abroad. (However his sarcasm can be annoying at times.) Continue reading Where is Anthony Bourdain Going on Parts Unknown
