Re: Live Antarctica Trip Report You just can't plan some things...

If you would have asked me a year ago where I would be in a year, "standing on a street corner in the Flaklands teaching a former Canadian PM Yiddish" would definitely not have been my answer.

Re: What's On Your Top 10 Bucket List? Updated after Antarctica:

In no particular order,

1 - Israel (never been there yet!)
2 - New Zealand
3 - Kyrgyzstan
4 - Kenya/Tanzania/Botswana Safari
5 - Kamchatka Peninsula
6 - Bora Bora
7 - Socotra, Yemen
8 - Patagonia
9 - Great Barrier Reef
10 - Palau

Also: Flying WRY-PPW, the shortest scheduled commercial flight in the world at all of 47 seconds.

And Ni'ihau, Molokai, and Kahoolawe would round out my Hawaiian island collection nicely.

Alaska Done!
Hawaii Done!
Iceland Done!
Cuba Done!
Norway Done!
Antarctica Done!

Re: What's On Your Top 10 Bucket List? I wanted to add the Galapagos, but that's kinda cheating as I'm currently planning a trip to there.

Also, I suppose I've technically been to Patagonia already, but a day in Ushuaia hardly counts.

Also also, cue the "you've never been to Israel?!" mob.

Re: Is it just me or are the modern LED headlights simply blinding? The worst are emergency vehicles. If they're coming at you on a dark road you basically need to shut your eyes and pray you don't drive into a tree.

Re: Live Antarctica Trip Report OK, removed over 300 off-topic and random posts.

Moved the discussion about being the "first" cruise to its own thread here.

Moved the discussion about freeloading on kosher cruises to the existing thread on that topic here.

And PenguinBOT can now officially retire.

If you've never tried this, I'd highly recommend it.
Introduced it to @Something Fishy on our Antarctica trip and he finished my entire supply  >:(  ;D
