Simply The Best: March 2024

Were you one of the fools who thought TPOL was done blogging? (see I Quit Blogging). It’s been ten years of blogging (see TPOL Is Ten And #MasterOfWon) and, for some reason, I still receive unsolicited advice on how to write my blog or how I am supposed to travel. It’s been ten years and somehow I can’t resist the urge to engage with the fools. But this is a post about the highlights from March 2024, so I’ll keep it positive by revealing the best. Here they are:

  1. Baghdad, Iraq: Day 1

It was an indescribable feeling to walk around Baghdad. The personal history, the media’s portrayal, and what it is now all came together and left me speechless.

2. Guns & Butter: Tonga Travel Guide

Tonga was a wild experience.

3. Tonga Cave Diving, Jumping & Gimping

Don’t stop the recklessness. That was my theme when I was in Tonga. First, I went swimming with whales. Then I thought I would push my luck by checking out an underground cave full of fresh water.

4. $300 Delta Damaged Luggage Payment: Fair?

I accepted the $300 and can’t say I am too upset about it. What do you think?

5. Tonga to Fiji: Not The Same Business

12,500 and the out-of-pocket cost was still a great value, $28 vs. $466, but the hard product was not as lavish.

6. Travel Lesson: Leave the Duty-Free Wine Behind

If I had no checked luggage, I could have proceeded through the faster transfer line.

7. This Is TPOL BREAKING NEWS: Ladyboy Fight in Bangkok

In the ultimate, big dick competition, “Officers were called on Monday night when more than 100 local sex workers converged on a hotel being used by sex workers from the Philippines on the city’s Sukhumvit Road, part of a sprawling area of gogo bars, street workers, and massage parlors.
