This week: Tackiest souvenir
Depending on who you ask, being a geek is actually considered cool these days. And what better way to show off that you're a geek than by collecting geeky things. Like tacky souvenirs brought back home from your travels around the world. You know what I'm talking about. Those cheesy chachkies on display in your home just begging the question, where ever did you pick that up?
Next Week: Stranded
Think of that time you jumped in the car ready to head out but the engine wouldn't start. Now imagine that you're standing in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country, holding jumper cables in your hand. Getting stranded thousands of miles away from home can never be a pleasant experience. But it certainly can provide an interesting story when you get back. I want to hear about the time you were stranded while traveling. Maybe you were stuck in an airport or trapped on a tour bus. Maybe you got into an accident. What was the worst time you ever got stranded and what did you do to find your way back? How did it change your perspective of the place you were visiting? Tell me about it. Send us an email or call 888-SAV-TRAV. That's 888-728-8728.
