We’re all used to seeing the concierge desk at hotels but how about the fish valet? Yes, there really is a fish valet at one hotel in Vancouver.
Conde Naste Traveler put together an entertaining slideshow featuring some of the most interesting (bizarre) hotel assistant jobs that exist around the world.
Here are the jobs:
Fish Valet– Fairmont Vancouver Airport: Oversees the storage and packing of guests’ self-caught bounty so that they can make the journey home with you. The hotel could handle up to 3,000 pounds on a busy day.
Earlier in the week I took part in Pin-Up Live, a travel chat done through Pinterest. The chats are hosted by Bethany and Randy from travel blog Beer & Beans.
During each chat, the topic varies and other co-hosts join them. For the most recent chat, the topic was Rerouted: A Skype Travel Challenge with Skype and AFAR.
Besides the main topic/ questions, others are also posted creating even more conversations.
One of the questions was: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever eaten while traveling? Lots of things came to mind as did a post that I wrote about just before the summer. While I was on the topic of crazy foods, I figured it would be a great idea to share my post for this week’s Flashback Friday.
Here is the post:
The 6 Oddest Foods That I’ve Ever Tried
The post was originally published on June 24, 2013.
Just after pizza, burgers are my next favorite food . I enjoying trying different kinds of burgers at places all over the country and world but usually won’t pass up some of my favorites (I’m talking about you Shake Shack!)
The best part about visiting different places is seeing the wide variety of ways burgers can be prepared and dressed. Each place can customize their patties with different cuts of meat, buns & toppings, some even being really creative (maybe crazy) with some of their combinations.
A bunch of burgers come to mind (that I’ve tried) when I think about crazy burgers.
A couple of weeks back I posted about a museum featuring medical odditiesand this week I want to share a different kind of odd post from the past for Flashback Friday.
I can’t recall seeing anything odd ever get checked at the airport up til our trip to Louisville and Nashville last December. At the counter next to ours, a man was trying to check two 50 pound dumbbells!
During my travels I don’t usually like to visit too many museums, however there are some that I try to seek out. For this week’s Flashback Friday I will share a post about a certain type of museum that I will go out of my way to visit-museums that display oddities!
I’ve been to a bunch of these type of museums and would like to share a post about one of them today.
Here is the post:
