What Do You Want Your Year to Be?

December 31st, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Lia, Quick Post

I’m off to Texas to ring in the new year. Yee ha! Which got me thinking about this year that almost was no more. I don’t like everything in the video below, but that’s okay. I absolutely love that image of his wife standing in front of the train at one minute in. And I [...]

I’m back. And I miss New York and Paris.

December 13th, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Betty, Good design, Quick Post

Forgive my absence. I started a new job about four months ago, and woo-nelly, it’s been an interesting…albeit challenging ride. Lia has, as always, taken up the reigns as blogger extraordinaire. I owe her big time. I know this fantastic blog comparing Paris to New York has been flying around for a while now, but [...]

The Oatmeal’s Travel Annoyance-Off

September 3rd, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Lia, Quick Post

The Oatmeal can be a little too South Park for me most of the time, but this comic from yesterday, “The crap we put up with getting on and off an airplane,” made me laugh out loud. It’s a visual representation of one of our most prevalent travel fails: Other passengers.

August 27th, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Lia, Quick Post, Wary of the advice of others

It’s been a TGIF kind of week, which makes this cute, funny comic series about an international red eye that much better.

Olympic Ghost Towns

June 18th, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Betty, Good design, Novelty, Quick Post

Cycling and Smooching

June 17th, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Lia, Dutch bikes, Quick Post, Transportation bliss

We’ve had an unseasonably gray and dour June in Seattle, which is why I’m in love with this photo series from Amsterdamize called “Love Is Bike.” This one is a favorite, of two people catching a quick smooch, probably at a stop light: I’m also fond of this photo, which shows a dad clearly gleeful [...]

Happy Oceans = Happy Travels

June 11th, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Betty, Quick Post

Today, in honor of what would have been Jacques Cousteau‘s 100th birthday, I felt inclined to post some shots I’ve taken during recent travels of healthy and happy oceans.
