The first thought that comes to mind when thinking of coffee is gasoline. "America runs on Dunkin,” is something you’ve most likely heard. It would seem this black liquid has devolved into nothing more than a required fuel in our society. Picture this: Monday morning commute. Bumper-to-bumper traffic on a highway at 7 AM. Angry and frustrated motorists, all weaving in and out of haphazardly-organized lanes to arrive at their destinations.
Here are some of the most common cultural, political and social discrepancies that might strike you while you're traveling abroad in Mexico.
For many, freedom is the ultimate goal in life. The highest aim.
Melbourne is a city that prides itself being totally and utterly obsessed with sport.
Everything in Florida WILL try to kill you. Alligators, mosquitoes, Floridians, they all have the capacity to kill you.
Come closer. I need to share something. The Oregon Coast may be this country's best-kept secret for a summer trip. I know, Oregon is so renowned for rain its best football team is the “Ducks.” It is nearly rain free during the summer months. June-September is a magical time to see a magical place. In fact, the real rainfall doesn't even begin until after Halloween.
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.
The Philippines is a fascinating country — an archipelago consisting of over seven thousand islands.
Santa Marta is an undiscovered gem of a city located on the northeastern tip of Atlantic coast of Colombia. I say that it’s an ‘undiscovered gem’ because it usually flies under the radar when compared to its coastal counterparts of Cartagena and Barranquilla. Still though, for Colombians and foreigners alike on vacation, Santa Marta has a lot to offer its visitors. I was drawn to Santa Marta a couple of months ago when I visited its neighboring town of Minca, which is also quite beautiful and full of lush scenery up in the mountains. Unfortunately, I did not get to spend much time in Santa Marta so I decided that during my 2nd time living in Colombia, I could not pass up the chance to visit this city if I had the chance.
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.
