On Smoking Weed in North Korea. By The Bohemian Blog. Wow. You can read about flat beds and suite upgrades in so many other blogs. I prefer to read stuff like this #uniquecontentWhatAConcept!!
Kiev, lying taxis, art directions, and a dead guy. By Travel is Free. Different type of travel trip report. We like different around here in TBB. Two guys rolling a dead guy is just a unique sight! Good thing you did not ask them to pose and say cheese We apologize to the dead guy and his family, may he rest in peace.
Awesome Time-Lapse Video Shows A Day In NYC By Foursquare Check-Ins This is just way cool, wow!

Canadian Kilometers burned 40k US Air miles and 50k Lifemiles to fly 15 segments/31k miles to Asia and Australia through Guam all in First and/or Business. Amazing burning if you ask me. Putting this baby together & booking it gives me a giant headache!
This was Travel Magic 2013. Nicely done video. I look at how far this hobby has come and it still amazes me.
Hilton announced its 4th Quarter promotion. Stay 2 nights, get double HHonors points. Stay 3 nights, get triple. Stay 4, get quadruple. Don’t worry, when it is time to register we will have the link up here for you! And that’s all you need to know.
Miles To The Wild has a great post on how to get to Central America with miles.
ON MY MIND
copy borrow his! I also added a Popular Posts widget on the right hand side. A few plugins also not visible to you. Added youtube social media buttons. I should have a TBB Facebook page but I am scared it will suck even more time out of me! I tried to add my Twitter feed and it was a complete fail. Any suggestions for an EASY plugin? How about doing a footer? And what the heck is this Jetpack thing that is in my Plug in area and not yet activated?
One benefit of blogging is learning so much every day. And I LOVE that aspect of it! To everyone I also interact with by email, thank you so much for the conversations!
ODDZ & ENDZ
The habits of supremely happy people. By Huffington Post. You have seen most of these before. As I get older I do start to appreciate even more “simple pleasures”. And this blogging thing makes me “LOL” a lot too! I certainly need to “unplug” more. But the “good mixtape” threw me for a loop, what the hell is a tape?
Capture the Colour Photoblogging Contest 2013 entry for yellow. (HT to Travel Junkette)
7 Pieces of Freaky Airport Art That Defy Explanation. By Gizmodo. Defy they do! (HT to Fishing4Deals)
How to Get Flat Abs, Have Amazing Sex and Rule the World in 8 Easy Steps. By Be You. (HT to Travel Junkette) Get your mind out of there, this is not what you think. But it sure is inspiring! Be kind. Even to pseudo expert credit card salesmen pumping away. Or just ignore them…
20 Things I learned while I was in North Korea. By wait buy why. This is &*(T%**% awesome!
I am reserving a permanent page for blogs TBB does not like. Please stay tuned. I am tired of criticizing and the crappy content/relentless pumping/nonstop censoring/pseudo expertise/non disclosing/etc continue unabated. Please give me some time, this blog is not a full time thing for me (even though I spend more time on it than many of these bloggers combined!). Just to pounce on the non negative part, I am also creating permanent pages of my Top Travel and Miles/Points Blogs too. Look at all the great stuff I have found for you today and you quickly realize I simply don’t have the time to be pouncing on The Points Guy for yet another credit card fest and Delta Points for another “must read” blog post! I also want to test how much the readership goes down with this style I reserve the right (hey it is MY blog) to come back to it if I am not finding other worthy stuff to feature here so keep me busy with the worthy stuff if you can por favor!
Friday interview at Million Mile Secrets was with a blogger with niche in France! This is a great niche. What I don’t get it is that French is not his native tongue and has now moved to Japan. No room for French speaking blogs in my Feedly list, nothing personal. What I like is how so many bloggers pop in to make a comment and leave their back link
Another blog aggregator is slowly taking shape as Saverocity got PFDigest to join him! May the marriage be eternal…or…what do you say in these situations?
May death do you part? Ok, then how about “Congrats and all the best!” This line made me laugh: “Boardingarea.com isn’t really into the personal finance scene, unless you happen to need a Chase Ink Bold credit card”. And how come Matt did NOT hand me “a briefcase filled with unmarked, non-sequential bills”, huh? [Hint: three of them will seal the deal lol]
