I stared wide eyed at the park ranger on the beach talking to our neighbor. “Did you get all that?” he asked when he turned my way.
A tornado watch! We were aware that the hurricane season is over at the end of November, but a tornado season? Checking a Florida disaster website, I discovered that there are two tornado seasons in Florida. The summer season ends in September and the Deadly Spring Season (yes, folks, that’s what it’s called) starts in February. Where does that leave us in December?
Christmas traditions from around the world and yes — gift-wrapped cats!

Lets face it, the internet is cat crazy! Over this first year of my blog we have seen them dressed as Sushi, painted, boxed and generally treated rather badly for our own amusement. Sadly for or feline friends Christmas time is not that much different, because today we are taking a little peek into the crazy trend of cat wrapping…

Travel plans shaky? Take a look at Kerala, India on iBellHop.

Kerala, India is a magical place that has been bringing flavor and color to the rest of the world for centuries. A state of the country of India since 1956, Kerala sits on the Western Coastline of India, near the tip of the Indian Peninsula, and facing the Arabian Sea. Often called the “Land of Spices,” Kerala was one of the major spice shipping hubs for the globe as early as 3000 B.C. and is still a major grower and exporter of spices and foods to this day. In addition to the flavorful and exotic spices that flow from Kerala, tea-growing is also a major industry, with some of the most unique tea flavors in the world being grown on the inland steppes. Though the agricultural tourism is a major draw, the majority of visitors are more-enthralled with the backwaters, Beaches, and stunningly-green tropical forests.
While there are vast expanses of rural land, canals, jungles and rainforests, Kerala also has urban developments, modern cities, and modern airports and transportation. In-fact, Kerala has the highest media exposure of the Country of India, touting newspapers and media agencies covering news and media in 9 different languages.

“our children are the first in history to have a lower life expectancy than their parents.”

Finally, I went to watch the documentary ‘Project Wild Thing’. Since I saw the trailer, I knew that I wanted, (and needed), to see this film. I wasn’t disappointed.
This documentary is the positive promotion of children being in the outdoors. But it isn’t done in an ‘in your face’ kind of way. The information is very balanced, and the first part of the film is David Bond observing how even his own children choose TV and computers rather than the outdoors.
Dating and personal quirks! EEK!

I’m sure you’re aware that every man, guy or boy has unique quirks that make him who he is. I’m also sure you’re aware that some of these traits are the reasons for nicknames, stories, and inevitably how you describe your ex when the relationship has ended. Well, I’m here to tell you that this is not only one of the most common things to discuss with your girlfriends; it’s clearly one of the most fun things.
Want to peek into the life of a long-term traveler? Take a look at this post about living on the road.

Now that you know the challenges and drawbacks of living on the road, you must be thinking…blimey, why on earth do they do it?
Well, contrary to popular belief (or at the very least my last guide post) there’s a hell of a lot of good that comes from living on the road. From the most obvious pro (freedom) to the little thought-of consequences (never having to iron anything again), a long-term traveller’s life can be rewarding, enlightening, maturing, utterly satisfying and incredibly fun. Plus it’s addictive as hell!
Once you’ve spent a few years this way, the mere thought of being confined to four walls and forced to follow a 9-5 routine (not to mention having to stare at the same backyard for longer than a week) can send shivers of terror down your spine.

At the end of your hand is The Atlantic
Its Horizon barely touches your hand’s fingertips
Your hand’s half-moons flare with stray diamond dust
Another day is discussed while your hand strokes
weary fingers, your hand’s mocha against my golden roast
Feral yearning cackles from your hand unto my own
Your hand’s weathered skin is mapped with scars
I know not where your hand has been,
but your hand fits perfectly in mine.
