    Floating in the Dead Sea? Don’t open your eyes!!

    Getting to the Dead Sea is fairly easy – in fact it is quite easy and you can approach from a number of directions in Israel.

    Getting into Salzburg….

    The first big thing about Salzburg is that it is the birthplace of Mozart, and to people who live in Salzburg, this is a big thing! One would easily get this question wrong in Final Jeopardy.

    Ohio to Toronto to Frankfurt

    Well long day coming in from Abercrombie and Fitch in Ohio. The whitest place in terms of people, I have ever seen.
