Titanic Nominations
1. Worst Tourists People who keep bumping into me because they have video cameras glued to their eyeballs. Seriously, people, if you’d put down your cameras, your exotic vacations would look less like reality television shows and more like reality.
2. Worst Tourist Information Office Slogan “Stockholm: The Capital of Scandinavia.” Did they run this by Norway, Denmark, or Iceland? Wars have started over claims like this.
3. Worst Travel Writer Hate Mail From a guy named Dale, in response to my lighthearted article about attempting to swallow lutefisk: “Please don’t call yourself a Norwegian-American. I’d have a book burning (of yours) but that means I’d have to buy one.”
4. Worst Hospital The one in Ankara, Turkey, where I spent the night after an evil salad did nasty things to my intestines. Not that one needs toilet paper whilst afflicted with giardia, but watching a fist fight between a patient and a doctor from the blood-stained sheets (not my own blood) of my emergency room bed was kind of stressful.
5. Worst Military Uniforms
The Swiss Guards at the Vatican. Really? In your red, blue, and yellow, poofy trousers and your floppy hats, you guys defend the Pope’s life? All you look qualified to do is juggle and play the lute.

    むかしむかしある村に、貧乏なミュージシャンと人の息子がいました。ある日ミュージシャンは、海辺でカニを拾ってきました。カニは毎日、金のたまごを産みました。ドラムを始めたきっかけは、Hey!Say!JUMPの裕翔くん。東京ドームのコンサートのとき、ドラムを叩く裕翔くんのちょうど真後ろにいたのね。それで“カッコいい!”って衝撃が走ったんだ。

    昨年12月に全面改良(フルモデルチェンジ)したクラウンをベースに、車体前部のグリルはマジェスタ伝統の縦型バーを並べ、中央部分にはクラウンシリーズの特徴である王冠マークを配し、威厳と風格を演出。ホイールベースをベース車から75ミリメートル延ばして室内空間を大きく広げるとともに、排気量3500ccのV型6気筒(V6)エンジンとモーターを組み合わせたハイブリッドシステムを搭載したこのパワートレインは、トヨタの高級車ブランド「レクサス」の上級車種の一つである「GS」シリーズのHV仕様「GS450h」と基本設計は同じだが、マジェスタ用に味付けした。マジェスタの従来モデルにあったV8エンジン仕様(4000cc)は廃止して、新型はHV専用車となった新型マジェスタは、燃費をガソリン1リットル当たり18.2キロメートルとして、同8.7キロメートルだった旧型から、ほぼ2倍に向上。ロマンスと政治的部分が絶妙に合わさり、緊張感とドキドキ感あふれるストーリーとなった。この組み合わせが全年齢層を虜にする魅力となったのではないだろうか首陽大君も他の作品では権力欲と血に染まった姿ばかり描かれたが、『姫の男』ではそうではなかった。この作品で首陽はセリョンの父親だった。

    When we are still discussing whether the fashion is art at the same time,
    Chanel (Chanel) creative director Karl Lagerfeld has brought the answer for everyone! Remember the Karl Lafayette Chanel field into full of Chanel classic logo element large installation art gallery?
    Before the foreign clothing design class, the professor didn’t teach you at first clothing design methods of stereotype, but let our imagination to play with different ingredients, sometimes is winding and different material fabric,
    or with different color, sometimes with limited color to the deployment of blooming all kinds of color, even if it’s just a piece of cloth and some color winding each individual to create art to design their own.
    Like to share this bag, bag bag body brush on the color painted mark, strap part is wire and fabric be riotous with colour crisscross, watch it, like the back to the origin of design at first, new inspiration flow like water will appear at any time!
    To understand Chanel2.55, she first changed the straps long dreary military image, poured into the female element and the introduction of women’s clothing, which she also lead Paris women a accessories reform.
    Miss Chanel is not only to design a style, she also designed process, early miss Chanel like soft sheepskin parchment, but easy to be abraded and deformed,
    so she left the sheepskin inside mat Shanghai cotton stuff, and then sewn up in edge lattice shape, increase the ductility,
    while the leather box it can help skin, without deformation to ensure a certain style.
    “Chanel rhombohedrons case grain bag is regarded as the fashion elements important, because it can bring out the various types of girl’s most elegant posture”
    Chanel design director Karl Lagerfeld said. So far this year Chanel classic rhombohedrons case grain 2.55 bag was already 59 years old, but it is still the hearts of many women’s dream stuff.
    This one can not help but sigh, good stuff to be used for a long time, and cherish.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!
