John’s Note – The Travel Rinse Repeat Roundup is a new feature on Travel Rinse Repeat where I’ll be providing useful links, updates on old articles, and other interesting info that just doesn’t warrant an entire post.
Coca-Cola – Still Poisoning Children in Louisiana – Okay, maybe that title is a bit sensational. In my article on visiting The World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta, I wrote about Delaware Punch, a drink I sampled that supposedly isn’t sold in the US anymore due to a key ingredient that causes behavioral modification in young children. As I was leaving the Baton Rouge airport, I was shocked to see it for sale in a Coke vending machine. Naturally, I had to buy a can.
Watch These Movies! – If you haven’t had a chance to check out my youtube channel, head on over there and watch some of the new videos I’ve posted. This week I added video from the hobo singalong I experienced in Little Five Points.
Travel Rinse Repeat Around the Web – For some reason, other people have recently been trusting me to appear on their websites. Poi and Kirsty were nice enough to have me write about my life on the road over at their site No Place to Be.
Also, Suzy Guese featured me on her weekly series, ‘Suzy Stumbles Over Travel.’If you’re not following her, check her out. She is one of my favorite travel bloggers and I have a great deal of respect for her writing.
Finally, Redweek Travel re-purposed my article about the four items I carry to make the TSA process simpler. They tweaked it a little bit and I’m not sure they got the joke behind the article – to me it’s hilarious to see the towel slipper shoes on their website without the caption explaining it. They took a little more creative licensing with my writing than I would have liked, but in the end I found it a little humorous.
That’s it for this first edition. I’ll be posting more of these round ups on a completely irregular and irrational schedule, so look forward to that. Or don’t. Just don’t drink any Delaware Punch in the meantime…
