From being the first sttled area in Western Australia to being the primary hub of Bars that flock 40-60 year olds that desperatlly want to feel young again to Cafe's and Restaurants that beleive they have a reasonable justification to charge an arm and leg due to "culture". Surrounded by the engulfing swan river filled with cruise ships docking the harbours every single day sending an influx of immigrants and tourists. Not saying that's a bad thing entirely, i understand the purpose and the economic turnover for Freo but the attitudes of immigrants can be quite obnoxious depending where they're from and is clear as day.
Tired of the new normal? Do you miss the walls around you feeling like a safe haven instead of a medium security suburban prison? Are those little spots behind your ears sore from the cute homemade mask you paid $25 in shipping on Etsy for?
I am accident prone. From car accidents to public embarrassment, I love to be the center of misfortune. I am hiking in Glacier National Park with my mission trip group. We have already hiked for some time and reached that point where the group splits up based on energy and interest. I did not want to drive back but I was deciding between the easy 1 mile hike and boat ride through the mountains or the 4 mile uphill climb. After making the correct decision of the first option, I watched the stupid, few 4-milers go on their way. I got this sudden urge to bring out my Track and Field 100 meter dash towards the 4-mile trail and that is how I ended up beginning this thigh workout from Hell.
The Maldives come quite close to the ideal image of paradise. Even from a bird's eye view, the sometimes round, sometimes oval, sometimes elongated atolls with their snow-white beaches in the deep blue of the Indian Ocean look like a masterfully painted picture of an ideal, harmonious and peaceful world.
Okay, so you're homeless in LA. I bet you moved here to seek fame and fortune, to make a name for yourself in the "industry." You were completely unprepared for the, dare I say it, unreasonable cost of living in this behemoth of a city. Your homelessness began with renting an apartment that's payments could have kept you fed for 3 months. Then came the incredible cost of gas, the parking tickets, and last but not least the inability to drown your sorrows in a drink that cost less than $12.
Lost from the first step.
Everything in Florida WILL try to kill you. Alligators, mosquitoes, Floridians, they all have the capacity to kill you.
Florida is hot. It's an undeniable fact, yet tourists feel the need to point it out. Floridians, and people who live in Florida, but don't want to be labelled as Floridians, are well aware that it is hot outside. Don't feel the need to remind them for the sake of small talk. They all know the statewide high temperatures are caused by Florida's proximity to the equator, and the low elevation making Florida very close to Hell.
As of the writing of this article, there are twelve major interstate highways in Florida. We can assure you that we will not be updating this article if any more are built, so don’t try to correct us. Of the twelve, nine interstate highways never leave the state of Florida, which makes one question the meaning of the word interstate. They are Interstates 4, 10, 75, 95, 110, 175, 275, 375, 195, 295, 395, 595. The last eight are just roads the connect the first four, which explains why they don't connect to other states. This leaves one highway, I-4. It technically shouldn't even be part of the Interstate System as it doesn't run through multiple states. This is the first strike against “Interstate” 4.
Traveling via plane sucks. It's become a staple statement among comedians who are just sick of having to deal with packing peanuts as a "gourmet meal" or people who have dealt with stewardesses who seem to have a legit problem with the self-loading cargo (you) asking for water.
There are certain places on this planet that we are regularly told that we should want to go to. Or, perhaps we actually do want to check them out. They're supposed to be where "it all happened," or they're supposed to be incredibly glamorous. Cool as they are supposed to be, the reality is that these kinds of tourist-rich venues tend to be really overblown.
