via @livingdreamrtw - I just noticed yesterday that my only credit card expires this month, and since I move around so much (and also because I’m an idiot), I have no idea where the bank plans to mail my new one. Luckily this happened while I’m in the US and can deal with the ass hats in customer service directly, but as Jeremy points out in this post, an oversight like this when you’re about to leave the country can be all kinds of stressful.
via @lonelyplanet - Judging by this state-by-state guide to local U.S. foods, our wonderful country is as weird and disgusting as it is diverse. Let’s just say I won’t be going to any family dinners in Minnesota anytime soon.
via @PeterSGreenberg - I like to think of myself as an extremely courteous person when traveling – that is, until someone cuts me in line at the airport or repeatedly kicks the back of my seat. Then I have no problems taking the gloves off. But really, that says more about their travel etiquette than mine. Is yours up to snuff?
via @TheTripologist - I’ve never even been to Southeast Asia, let alone somewhere as specific as Southern Laos, but this list of 5 can’t-miss Southern Laotian experiences is giving me all sorts of ideas for my next trip. On a related note: does anyone have several thousand dollars they can loan me?
