Members who are knowledgeable about this destination and volunteer their time to answer travelers’ questions. The first effort to make progress in IGT research and development produced a lot of talk and no action. The second effort could not attract membership. So to those of you unaware that IGT even has a history please understand that we are meeting averse. Meetings tend to be a total waste of time. We also are picky about who is allowed to be a member. PhD’s are preferred. If you are writing from prison because you have a lot of time on your hands, your mail will be fed to the shredder and ignored. If you are contacting us to tell us that this is a waste of taxpayer money, then we will have proof positive that you are stupid because above we clearly stated that we DO NOT WANT TAX money.
Nepal, as with many other countries and certainly some places here in the U.S. are known for having a pick-pocket here and there, so using a travel belt is always a good idea, especially in the cities. I’ve used mine on a number of trips, regardless of the chance of being robbed. The belt is great because I always knows where these important items are, keeps them close at hand and prevents me from dropping or misplacing them.
International airline carriers have different luggage size and weight restrictions, and the airlines have started being much more strict about enforcing those limits. Why? Those very hefty surcharges for overweight baggage — usually $100 or more per bag over the 50-lb. weight limit for US carriers — have become a significant new source of revenue for them! That’s why a portable luggage scale makes such a perfect travel gift for frequent fliers.
On our same snorkel trip, we had the opportunity to go to a nearby coral reef and swim for an hour or so. The reef was unbelievable. the colors, the lively coral, were unlike anything I’ve seen before. I also got to play with my new gopro under water which was such a blast.
One thing that none of the other Disney theme parks don’t have is the California Adventure. This 55 acre park was an expansion of the original Disneyland theme park. It consists of five areas: Sunshine Plaza, Hollywood Pictures Backlot, The Golden State, A Bug’s Land and Paradise Pier. This park opened in February 2001.
Earthquakes. Many areas of Alaska are on or near a fault-line. Earthquakes happen. Most of the time, they are small and not too dangerous. For a person not used to Earthquakes, they can be scary when it wakes you up in the middle of the night. But just be prepared to experience some.
