Re: Tips to help with packing no matter where you are going

HistoryDigger ·
I have packing cubes too. Makes things so much easier to find when you are shifting from hotel to hotel or apartment to apartment. I still over pack. I just need to remember how much I love my jeans and t-shirts when I'm on the go. I never bring jewelry except cheap earrings. Simple style feels best on a trip.

Re: Where in the World is TravelGumbo (#282)

Here are the final clues for this week's travel puzzle. The first two are from our destination of interest... The final photo is of a church taken within a few blocks of the destination of interest. It has a very distinctive style of architecture that should help you pinpoint the city. The reveal goes up on Monday. Good luck!

Well, nothing "Thais" us together like a good puzzle! But alas, this one did not last to the weekend. WorkerBee, our puzzle champion started homing in by e-mail on Wednesday, with an inspired but wrong guess: Once again Gumbo is taking time to visit a church. This church is made of wood on a base of stone. The location is near Barsana (Birsana) in Maramures county, Romania. By Thursday, he had continued his research, and last night he was back with another e-mail, and he had nailed it. On...

Last launch I watched was from the East Coast of Florida - maybe near Cocoa Beach. The Sky was complete darkness, just a few stars and the moon. We were listening to the launch radio station from about T minus 15 minutes - as NASA described the last minute checks. A few seconds before launch time you could see the ground at Cape Canaveral illuminated like a bright white flare. The steam from the launch pad turned into a white cloud and on "Zero" the rocket was moving slowly into the air. For...

Well, I didn't expect anyone to twig it quite that fast, and it's not just because of a polar route. Although we usually don't think of Hawaii extending north of Kauai, in fact the state includes the entire Hawaiian Ridge/Emperor Seamount chain, running up to the Aleutian trench, just off Alaska's Aleutian islands. Mostly underwater, mostly administered by Federal agencies as a preservation/conservation area. Kure Atoll and Green Island is the northernmost habitable place in Hawaii, and it's...

Fiendishly difficult! By the metal down pipes and the mailbox style, I would say it is France. From the cobbles and arched doors, it has to be one of a hundred medieval towns there.... Ah well, a shot in the dark - Carcasonne would be my guess. Nice one PH, thanks.

Poor Larry Ellison. It's such a hardship owning your own Hawaiian Island.

Re: Island Air: Even Billionaires Get Airline Blues

Former Member ·
Billionaires are made, not born. Mr. Ellison seems to be making a business move - pressure the FAA to make things difficult for Hawaiian air, upgrade the Island Air service, achieve sole "Ohana" certification for Island Air. Ohana certification is keenly sought for this market. Here is a description. http://www.examiner.com/articl...on-spiffed-up-planes

Re: Island Air: Even Billionaires Get Airline Blues

PHeymont ·
Well, it's worth noting that Hawaiian has still not gotten Ohana off the ground, literally. They're citing FAA's cutbacks due to sequestration and then the shutdown as the reason. Island Air used to be a Hawaiian affiliate, flying Dash-8s and ATR-42s into small airports and feeding passengers into Hawaiian. Ohana was/is their plan to stay in that market with ATR42s. Island is unhappy with its ATRs (both the 42 and the larger 72), but doesn't seem to be able to solve any of its problems. I...

Hank, While you're in London you can get a Coach (Bus) Tour that will show you Stonehenge and Bath and The Cotswold Villages - very pretty and very old. Leeds Castle (not in Leeds, close to London). Stonehenge is not an overnight stop - remember what I said about distances in the UK being smaller? If you need to fill a gap take the Train (or Bus) to York. Very old - lots of History and a Museum that will take you back 150 years walking the streets of Victorian England. Go into Old Shops and...

I'm leaving next week for San Diego and then a 17 day cruise to and around the Hawaiian Islands. I have never been all that interested in Hawaii (so why am I going you ask?) but your blog and photos have begun to pique my curiosity. Thank you.

I'll give it some thought while cruising the Hawaiian Islands later this month, if I have a minute when not learning to hula dance, eat poi and look down into volcano craters. Aloha from Montreal, in the Province of Quebec where our provincial government wants to pass a law making it illegal for Muslim women to wear the hijab, for Jewish men to wear the skull cap (forget the proper name) and for South Asian men to wear turbans, if they work in government institutions (i.e. schools,...

Thanks for reading the piece and for your comment, GarryRF! The "Yellowstone" hot spot has migrated over the past thousands of years from eastern Oregon, across southern Idaho and now sits right under Yellowstone National Park. Actually the hot spot hasn't move at all, the earth's places move away from the hot spot, but it's just another way of thinking about it. I'd be careful about being around an active volcano but don't mind hanging around places like this or much of the Hawaiian...

Re: Best Outdoor Workout Spots?

Former Member ·
We travel indie style, taking public transport whenever possible. Jumping on and off buses and trains with luggage takes a certain level of physical fitness. We try to start trips in good shape because, if not, we shape up the hard way with all of that walking to bus stops and running for trains. You have not really lived until you have jumped, with bags, at the last possible instance, to catch the ferry behind Amsterdam Centraal just before it pulls away from the dock.

Thursday's clue tells us more about our mystery location. In addition to private homes, this famous street has a few buildings used for other purposes. The church with the sharp steeple was built in the high Victorian Gothic style, while the Jewish Temple was built in the Queen Anne style with neoclassical revival details.

Saturday's clues: This Second Empire style house, which was rare for this town, was built for a wealthy banker. The ionic portico of this other neoclassical revival structure mimics a Roman temple. If you think you know the answer, email it to TGsuggestions@gmail.com

The Puzzler really hopes to hear more today from the guessers...this usually works best when folks trade questions, hints and more. Today's clue shows another side of the church that is the answr to "Where in the World is TravelGumbo?" It's a stained glass window that is very modern in style, and contains a significant historic reference (as do several others in the building).

Re: Finnair adds weigh-in to check-in

DrFumblefinger ·
Yet another step in the complete dehumanization of the flying experience. Every airline faces this challenge and deals with it successfully, yet only Finnair and Hawaiian Air need to weight people like they're freight. Shame on them. I had no plans to fly Finnair, all the more now when I read of their corporate mentality.

I learned something new tonight, delving into Gumbo's adventure - "If it doesn’t spout water, it isn’t a gargoyle, it’s a grotesque." I thought for no reason that spouting water was incidental to gargoyle-ness, but it is, apparently, essential. I too, think the building is newer than might be implied by the decoration. The style of stonework above and below the creature seems very modern to me.

Re: Where in the World is TravelGumbo (#76)

Roderick Simpson ·
I am really stumped this time. The style of the church is gothic, rather than Spanish and it is perhaps Episcopalian/Anglican. The palm trees indicate that it can't be too far north. So maybe it is the Old South, or possibly California. I'm now waiting to find out where it is!

Paul, you're beginning to sound like Ben Franklin who wanted the turkey to be the USA's national bird, not the bald eagle. If he'd seen these photos, I'm sure old Ben would have been advocating for the chickens.

And if Ben Franklin had told anyone he'd seen these photos, he'd have been locked up and we'd have never heard of him. It was probably a close call for him as it was.

Re: No place like home? 41% of Americans stayed there!

I think a lot of it is due to a bad economy. Many many working people out there are struggling and don't have spare funds to take a family on a trip. Travel for 4 people is often 3-4 x as expensive as travel for one person. And as PM points out, it's also a matter of priorities. To some folks vacation means going in style, like staying at an all inclusive luxury resort, not just camping. I'm actually curious if the 40% who said they didn't actually take vacation would even consider going...

Re: Homes of Leadville

PHeymont ·
I think for the U.S., Victoria is pretty much it. We've often shared styles, but what is referred to in England as Regency is usually called Federal here. You might make an association between your Georgian and our 'Colonial.' Certainly no post-Victorian styles here are associated with reigning monarchs. I wonder what sort of style might be associated with Edward VIII... well, maybe not!
