The universe blessed me with another year of kooks and ill-mannered travellers in 2014. Plus, a few great animal stories. I’m grateful for the content.
Because we live on a planet full of fools, idiots and irritating people who travel, there are many more adventures in my future. Can’t wait.
Here are a few memorable postings from 2014.
Best experience: Had a ‘moment’ with a Nassau Grouper in Roatan, Honduras. Going back in March 2015 in the hope of reconnecting with this special friend.
Runner up: Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see a whale shark in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Maybe it took a wrong turn. An amazing surprise.
Best travel deal: Roatan, Honduras. Great diving and inexpensive.
Best food: Cosmo in Montreal, Quebec. The signature dish, the Mish Mash, is to die for. And, with thousands of calories per serving, it will kill you. Going back for more in May 2015.
Biggest jerk: When coffee meets crotch. Karma at work.
Honourable mention: Think the airline lounges attract quality people? Thank again. These folks in the United Airlines lounge were barbarians.
Most popular posting of the year: The rude, loud-mouth I really wanted to punch.
Most fun writing: Mr. Caracas visits Mexico.
Weirdest thing: Watching a parasailor almost die. Dumb way to kill yourself.
Runner up: Really Fidel? Cuba’s crabs follow me to the can.
Honourable mention: The weird racist t-shirt guy introduces himself to Tank. Hilarious.
Thanks for reading. Happy New Year.
