Not that Brisbane’s a bad place to live in. Au contraire, it’s beautiful:

Shillong, Meghalaya is sometimes called the Scotland of the East. They wear tartan, they play bagpipes, and when the British first came in, they said it reminded them of Scotland.

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.

** ‘phut’ is the equivalent of ‘whack’ or ‘wham’ (comic book style)
