Last week I wrote how you could now send your kids to North Korea for summer camp. In the post I jokingly mentioned the idea of sending Lucas to camp there for a week so Kim and I could go on one of the tours of the closed-off country.
Last week I shared what I felt were two of the most annoying kinds of travelers that I usually come across during our trips- Seat Pullers and Tour Group Participants. The topic came up due to a Thrillist article- 15 Most Annoying Travelers In The World.
I found Thrillists’ list to be pretty weak but I did agree with a few of their choices.
I don’t usually rent cars when traveling in foreign countries but have done so in a few. While looking over the HuffPost’s list I felt that Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam would’ve been a great addition. While I didn’t rent a car during my visit, Kim and I found it almost impossible to cross the roads due to the crazy amount of cars and even worse- motorbikes. I could only imagine what it would be like to drive there.
A bunch of you commented on my post, calling out the HuffPost for leaving off some pretty awful places to drive like Bangkok, Cairo and Sao Paulo while including others.
While I wouldn’t claim to have a ton of experience driving outside the United States (I much prefer to take public transportation or walk), I have driven in a bunch of foreign countries & places.
When I first came across the Huffington Post article, it was after just getting back from our Quick Euro Roadtrip where I drove on some pretty crazy roads in the Lake Como area of Italy. This experience made the article even more interesting to me.
For me the answer is no if I have to pay for the upgrade. I’d gladly take a free upgrade but to pay for a little more space, I just don’t see the value. I would much prefer to use valuable funds to pay for things during the trip.
However, I can see some cases where paying for E+ can be worth it. If you’re on the taller side then upgrading might be well worth it to get extra space and save your knees from the seat in front of you. I could also see some people finding E+ a decent option for very long flights.
