Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Sep 15, 2015: Pit Lane, Mdina Grand Prix

GarryRF ·
I was having lunch in Mdina. Our waiter was a boy about 8 years old. He asked if I'd ever seen a train. "Of course I have. Maybe 4 a day" "When I save enough to leave Malta I want to see a train" he said. Then he asked my Mother in Law if she was my sister. She slipped him a few dollars. He'll soon have enough - I thought - to see a train - even at 8.

Re: Art, Architecture, History and More in Fun Frederick, MD

George G. ·
One of our sister agencies called the Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center was located in Fort Detrick in Frederick Maryland. I visited AFMIC a number of times and your photos of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine brought back memories. I have not toured Frederick village itself, but your story has prompted me to put it on my list of places to visit.

Re: The least loved airline fee is...

PHeymont ·
I think you're right that unavoidability is a big factor in the hatred of bag fees. As you point out, not everyone cancels or bothers to pay a seat fee, and many people carry their own food. The other factor is the sheer size of the fee. A couple with two suitcases, round-trip, have added $100 to their cost (regardless of distance). If they decide to take a bigger case and share it, they save $50, but are now condemned to drag an oversize bag as they go. No wonder some of the loyalty credit...

Re: Banff National Park: Hiking in the Subalpine Splendor of Sunshine Meadows

MsNomadica ·
Travel Rob, You can read about the San Diego to Key West road trip on www.msnomadica.com . It's on the posts from last July & August. They weren't really meant as a travel blog so much as a record of my sister and I trying to decide where we were going to live once we leave New Orleans. In any case, I can tell you that we basically loved San Diego, Disney and Key West, while Austin and Fort Lauderdale were both a bit of a let down. We've loved living in New Orleans, but it's been just...
