Finger counters make geniuses. (From The Atlantic)
Well, seeing as I still count with fingers (time zones are difficult, okay?)— stay tuned world, the next Ada Lovelace is coming your way.
*Yes, I’m completely going to ignore the fact it’s been a few months since my last post. Because (1) I’ve been busy– who isn’t nowadays?! and (2) I don’t have a great excuse for not posting more regularly. Heavens knows I’ve travelled enough in the last few months (on the road at the mo’, actually). But I guess we can attribute said sporadic nature of posts to laziness? Quarter-life crisissing (not a word, but I shall petition to have it in OED soon, I swear.**) But fear not, I shall have posts from Miami and HK, and, dare I add, Tasmania up soon.
Till next time,
** Yeah. Totally lying there. And trying to make “fetch” happen.
It’s real, and it’s not the worst thing on ze inter-veb:

A funny anecdote about the tribulations of traveling with newlyweds. Indian newlyweds, to be exact.
Sort of reminds me of this one time I was in the much-coveted aisle seat with a couple (it was one of those two-three-two seat configurations). The couple, an Aussie pair on their way home from Montréal, were sickeningly loved up when we took off. Not long after the captain switched off the seat belt sign, Romeo turns to Juliet and says, ‘We need to talk.’ I was doing the whole ‘let’s-pretend-to-listen-to-music-with-the-headphones-in-and-no-music-on’ eavesdropping thing, but like Juliet, I did not see that coming! Needless to say, it was a really awkward eight-hours to Zurich (and however much longer their journey home was). Anyhow, what the guy was thinking, is beyond me.
Share your awkward couple travel stories below. Or point out some typos. Or share a good joke. ‘Tis a free world.
* ‘foo foo’ is an Indian interpretation of the sounds one makes when blowing on something (because you ‘foo foo’ on something if it’s hot)
** ‘phut’ is the equivalent of ‘whack’ or ‘wham’ (comic book style)
Oh boy, I do take a lot of panoramic landscape-y photos. Arguably, I take too many landscape photos in general (exhibits A through Z). Which of these photo clichés are you guilty of?
