This Week on the Webnets: Dec 19

Tomorrow I depart for a few weeks of holiday travel. Just cities in Canada and the USA for a mix of visiting friends and goofing off. Which means today I’m doing laundry and syncing up the trusty mp3 player. Which gives me time to slap together this little look back at stuff I have particularly enjoyed from the previous week in travel blogs and whatnot.

Last week I totally forgot this awesome post on Legal Nomads, so just pretend it isn’t two weeks old. All three of Jodi’s top travel secrets are bang on the money. It’s almost like she knows what she’s doing. Rob, also has 30 great safety tips for the traveler. Oh, and speaking of pro tips, always carry an umbrella because the dragon ladies hella swoon for a man with a sturdy brolly.

This one is only for people who eat and/or drink. So if you do neither of those, then skip ahead. Forks and Jets have been rocking my tummy’s imagination since I found their blog. Check out these pierogi‘s, and if you’re up for a drink, well then Na Zdrowie!

There’s still time to chip in to build a school in Cambodia and get your hands on some fabulous prizes over at Passports With Purpose. It’s just $10 and a super quick and easy payment system. Just don’t pick the damn ukulele.

Over on Vagabonding, this month’s featured BootsnAll forum question is by some ridiculous dork. I don’t know where they find these people. Am I right?

If you’re still thirsty for some weekly recap action, then clicky over to Two Go Round-The-World‘s far more in-depth summary. They have way more energy than I do for this sort of thing. Plus I can’t help but praise their impeccable taste since they said such nice things about me.

Still with me here? Those are all the posts I have the attention span to share, but if you want to see the pointless pics I pulled off my phone this morning, then keep on keeping on below. Otherwise, have a cool weekend. Peas.

A montage for the Israeli girls

Just some interesting tidbits to get you through recess today.

  • Israeli women with assault rifles buying some ice cream makes for a surreal image. It’s tough to wrap my mind around the differences in that society or to imagine growing up there.
  • Don’t forget to buy your Harry Potter books from a Canadian retailer such as amazon.ca. When Rowling asked her publishers to please use 100% recycled paper (like Raincoast in Canada has been doing already) Scholastic, the USA publisher, told her to suck it. Buy your copy from Canada so you get the Raincoast version instead of the Scholastic version. Plus the Canadian version is not dumbed down like the American version is.
  • Speaking of reading, how about receiving one tiny snippet of a book in your email each day? Kind of an intriguing idea really. Check it out at dailylit.com.
  • I’ve been meaning to get around to a robust look at Nestle and the myriad of ways they are bastards. Until I do, you can get a head start at their page on McSpotlight.

Okay, I have to get back to giving all my shit away so I can start living. Have a nice day!
