The Whackiest Stuff in the Travel Year

Every Wednesday, I post about something weird and whacky I observe or experience in the travel world.

The posts get some mixed reactions:

eg “Fantastic! Love reading your blog” and “I don’t understand the point of this post”  and  “I wish I could have that 30 seconds of my life back.”

You can find all of my Wednesday posts via this link. Here are the year’s posts one by one in order of popularity amongst my readers:
