Man On The Lam – 12 Mildly Disturbing Miniland Scenes From Legoland Florida

Are you one of those people who likes re watching children’s films and discovering some of the messed up and definitely not PG themes that are sometimes included? I think they do that so the parents don’t go completely insane. Which may also be the reason for these hilarious little additions at Legoland.





The Travel Chica – The Driest Place On The Planet Is Flooding

To be honest – I hadn’t even heard about the floods here. But to be fair, I was stuck in some floods of my own (of the Fijian variety).

I found it really amazing, as I was sitting with no water and power in Fiji, just how little the rest of the world knew of the destruction happening there. Which is why I want to feature this post about the flooding in Argentina.




Nomadic Samuel – Drug Bras

This is a guest post on Nomadic Samuel’s site, by Kimberly from Turbulent Tramp. Turblulent Tramp is a newly dicovered blog for me, which is always exciting as well.

This quirky and hilarious story is amusing to read, but also reminds us that we need to always be aware while we are travelling, because who knows what is illegal in some countries.






What do you think of my April picks? Which is your favourite?

    Nice work, Jade. I especially liked Raymond’s LegoLand post, which made me laugh. I’m not often interested in stories on big-time tourist traps, but I liked that his post approached it from a unique perspective. Must have missed Samuel’s post while traveling, so I’ll read that one next!

    Thanks for including my post about the flooding in the Atacama Desert. It is amazing what does not get coverage internationally. Same thing happened when I was in Puerto Natales and Torres del Paine was on fire. That story eventually reached the international media after a few days.

    Enjoyed the other posts in your roundup too.
