Simply the Best: June 2014

I’m almost caught up with the best of the best from The List series since I started blogging way back in March 2014.

Here are the Top 7 Posts from June 2014:

1. DESERTING THE COMPLACENCY OF THE DESERT

The only risks that come with living in Arizona are not going to the gym everyday so you can’t be at your best at the W pool party where only the finest douches spend their Saturday afternoons.

2. I’VE BEEN EVERYWHERE AND IT SUCKS!

So now I face a conundrum that many points travelers face (and you too will face as loyal blog followers): is it even worth going on the trip when I can’t add another country? Isn’t the whole point of traveling to see new places?

3. HIT THE ROAD JACK…THAT MEANS GET OUT!

That’s when he asked me to leave and I said some choice words about the viability of his business (no expletives) and walked out.

4. IS HAWAII A COUNTRY?

While bloggers are asked how many Twitter followers they have, weightlifters their bench, travelers are asked their country count.

5. THE CUSTOMS OF THE CHINESE

A weekend of drama and hypotheticals ensued as Mikey and I played craps and another game, “What’s the worst Chinese customs will do to you.”

6. XIAO LONG BAO: A TUTORIAL

A trip to Shanghai would be all for naught if you do not have authentic, street inspired xiao long bao.

7. FREE WITHOUT THE ‘R’ SPELLS FEE

Remember when checked bags were free? Remember when you got a free (terrible) meal on the plane that was undercooked and disgusting? Remember when you felt a sense of accomplishment because you convinced the flight attendant to give you the whole can of Coke!
