…It’s TGI Friday: Travel?


Since I took a little bit of a break to visit down under, it’s taken some time to get back into the blogging flow again. As a reward for the readers that have stuck around, I’m going to hold another DYH contest for this week’s TGI Friday. This one’s going to be simple, too.

Just answer the following question: Where would you most like to travel?

Post your answer in the comments, and one winner will be chosen at random and given a $10 iTunes gift card. Now let’s hear it, where do you want to go?

…South Africa loves zip lines?

In Sun City, South Africa, they have what is supposedly the world’s tallest, longest, and fastest zip line. After watching this video, it’s hard to doubt those claims, though they never do say it’s the world’s safest.

…The Game For Brave People is scary?


The Oribi Gorge used to be the king of swing, but if you want a ride on the new World’s Highest Swing, you now need to head over to China. There, in Harbin City, you can swing on the observation deck of a TV tower that reaches 1,100 ft up into the sky. After strapping yourself into the steel seat, you simply swing out and over the city below. Though the observation deck is only 700 ft. off the ground, I’m sure this ‘Game For Brave People’ is still quite a stomach turner.

…DC has a dark side?

Washington DC

If traveling through the streets of DC sounds like as much fun as sitting through reruns of CNN, fear not, because Gridskipper has created a guide to the wilder side of Washington. Featuring strip clubs, fetish clubs, bars, and lingerie shops, it’s a list of the hot spots and cool clubs that are definitely not on that tourist map you just bought. Capital city, here I come.
