I’m back home from my holiday trip, and I have my trip report ready to go, but then someone tried to blow up a Northwest flight into Detroit and the TSA jumped into action. I tried to let my anger cool off for a couple days, but the more I stewed over the changes, the more angry I got. These rules are so absurd that they make the liquid rules look rational.

Hauntingly empty buildings of old Berlin...
I just spent 3 hours in the subway in Stockholm. No, it wasn’t stuck. No, I didn’t get lost. No, I wasn’t held hostage. I actually spent 3 hours in the subway on purpose.
When you travel, you want to do as the locals do. Not only does it often lead to more fulfilling and illuminating experiences, but it usually saves you money too.
