Back in February a squirrel caught a flight from Costa Rica to Houston and in April koalas checked out Qantas First Class. There’s also been a couple of instances of scorpions attacking passengers on flights back in February and March.

It’s safe to say that some animals like to fly! Well maybe not exactly…

This is a very important message for pilots. Make sure to check the wings of your aircraft before take off. Continue reading Reminder: Check Your Aircraft’s Wing for Cats Before Take Off

I’ve been receiving a lot of holiday messages from airlines, travel companies and a slew of other businesses over the past week or so.

One of them arrived in my inbox yesterday from Avianca. It included the really cute image shown above but there was one major problem. Continue reading Avianca Happy Holidays Video, Can Somebody Translate?

United Airlines, Thanks But How About…

United Airlines

The holiday season is well under way. Between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and other sales, I hope most of you are close to done with your gift shopping.

The ridiculous amount of holiday music on the radio and in stores could drive just about anybody nuts so I won’t exactly mind when it’s all over.

Kim and I aren’t big on gifts but Lucas gets his fair share and I’m looking forward to the look on his face when he rips open each of his presents, getting loads of new toys! Continue reading United Airlines, Thanks But How About…

Kim and I love animals and have had many great and memorable experiences during our travels. I wrote about our Top 5 Animal Encounters which you can check out here.

Over the years there have been a couple of amazing animal videos on YouTube that really stand out.

  1. Battle at Kruger– A battle between a pride of lions, a herd of buffalo, and 2 crocodiles at a watering hole in South Africa’s Kruger National Park while on safari. 
  2. Touched By A Wild Mountain Gorilla– An amazing chance encounter with a troop of wild mountain gorillas near Bwindi National Park, Uganda

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve come across an exciting, new animal video on YouTube.

A couple of days back, I was skimming over the top articles on Yahoo. An article with a very interesting title caught my attention.

An Amazing Encounter: Touched By A Wild Mountain Gorilla

On my second trip to Africa, one of the highlights was getting to visit the mountain gorillas in Bwindi National Park in Uganda.
I read about an amazing video a few days back. A tourist was taking pictures/ videos of the gorillas and they came over to him and started petting and grooming him! What an amazing encounter! The video is a must watch and one of the most amazing vids I’ve ever seen on YouTube. Check for the link it out at the end of my post.
As I watched the video,. the man mentioned which gorilla family he had the interaction with. Immediately I realized it was the same one that my wife and I got to track- the Rusheguras!
What a strange coincidence…
This post is not about my experience in Uganda (I plan to do one in the near future-stay tuned!)
Here is a photo of us standing infront of the meeting point before starting our gorilla trek:
