Do Not Disturb- One Man’s Odd Travel Collection

Do Not DisturbWhen it comes to travel, I’ve collected various things over the years. I used to get a shot  glass from places we visited. After a while (and many glasses), I gave up on this collection.

I still collect local hats, masks and amenity kits from some of our flights.

One of the odder collections I’ve heard about  is the world record Pizza Box Collection held by Scott Wiener of Scott’s Pizza Tours. His collection included boxes from all over the world.

Last month, CNN reported on a very odd yet interesting collection related to travel. Continue reading Do Not Disturb- One Man’s Odd Travel Collection

A few years back, I wrote about a boy who fell 1,640 feet off of a cliff and survived. A year later, a man destroyed a 126 year-old statue while taking a selfie. The country Croatia told visitors to stop taking stupid and dangerous selfies. A woman fell 60 feet off of a bridge taking a selfie.

RIP Anthony Bourdain, Kimpton Monaco Philadelphia Review, LL Bean Being Sued, McDonald’s Cyprus, NYC Getting Nutella Cafe, Win A Trip To Australia & More- The Rehash!

rehashRIP Anthony Bourdain.

The world was shocked by the surprising death of Anthony Bourdain a few days back. Many of us have been affected by this in one way or another. Most of us would say that he had the dream job- traveling all over the world, eating great food and meeting interesting people. Maybe that kind of life isn’t all that its cracked up to be.

Here is one of my favorite Tony Bourdain quotes:

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s OK. The journey changes you; it should change you… You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

I’ve been reading and watching stories about him all weekend. Yes, I’ll go back and watch (or rewatch) episodes to destinations we’ll be visiting on future trips. I think many of us will.
