Gadling bloggers have been as busy as Santa’s elves this week. It’s hard to choose five posts from so many, so this week I’m offering five categories:
- Animals: Brett covered stress-reducing felines in Tokyo and how to adopt a Tasmanian devil, Jerry told us the touching story of a woman who is raising a pet coyote, and Iva suggested adopting an orangutan to give as a gift for Christmas.
- Poop: I could’ve used the more polite term “toilet” or “lavatory,” but let’s face it — it’s the poop we’re interested in. Justifying this fact is Abha’s post on excrement on display in London, and Grant’s suggestion that rhino poop would make a great holiday gift. Martha wrote about how to find the best and worst bathrooms in North America, and Grant also warned us that several restaurants in Chicago are serving ice cubes with more bacteria in them than toilet water.
- Drinking: Grant gave us precious info on how to bring wine back from abroad, Kelly reminisced about Hungarian wine, I covered the Around the World in 60 Pubs tour, Abha wrote about debauchery tourism, and Martha recalled the place ouzo had in her first big trip.
- Airlines: It just wouldn’t be a normal week at Gadling without some kind of airline news. This week, Spirit Airlines kicked off a MILF sale, part of a random wing was found off of a runway in Indonesia, and we found out that cellphones might replace boarding passes.
- On the road: Neil infiltrates North Korea, Iva muses on her past year’s trips — all taken while she underwent chemotherapy — and Matthew continues to entertain us with the details of Japanese life — this week, he discusses the not-too-uncommon incidences where Japanese have literally worked themselves to death.
There you have it! Lots of fun stuff to peruse over your weekend — enjoy it!
