Interesting Travel Stories that Caught My Attention

Since I read the news all day long, I thought I would post some of the interesting travel stories that I have come across recently.

Costa Concordia Disaster
If you haev not been paying attention to the news lately--or you just live under a rock--a Costa Concordia luxury cruise liner shipwrecked off the coast of Italy, killing at least six passengers. This article talks about what caused the event and how authorities, travelers and Carnival are reacting.
The Latest Powder Adventures
New innovations, excursions, and excitement on the slopes this year!!

Gyms with great views
Fitness. Travel. All in one. I'm a total gym rat, so this article definitely caught my attention.

Cupcake confiscation
We all know that we can't bring liquids through security, but food has always been acceptible. So why can't you take a cupcake in jar form through TSA checkpoints?

Gayest cities in America
This article stirred up a little bit of controversy, through I can't imagine why. (sense the sarcasm.)

How much change is left behind at security checkpoints?
You will be shocked to know how much money we end up leaving behind at security as we're rushing to catch our flights. It is staggering! And where does it go? The TSA! I think it could definitely be put to better use.
Emigration hot spots
So if you could live in any other country than the one you currently live in, where would you live? This articles talks about some of the most popular places for Brits to emigrate to. Bonus: my company is quoted!

Virgin America: Hip and broke
Since the trendy Virgin America launched five years ago, it has had only one profitable quarter. Even though it has been operating most of its professional life in the red, it continues to expand.

Those are just a few of the articles that I felt compelled to pass along to my readers. If I find any other noteworthy news stories, I will be sure to post them here, or perhaps write a longer piece about them if they really tickly my fancy--yes, I did just write that!

And feel free to send me any travel stories that you find, I am always interested!
