Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

17 days to the Olympics

Before we know it it’ll be here and gone : (

I found some cool ways to participate in the celebrations for those that can’t be here in Vancouver. Actually these would be fun even if you are here:

There’s this CODE project where you register and then during the Opening ceremonies you will be emailed some sort of ‘virtual souvenir’ and the souvenir is also your invite to participate virtually in the Closing ceremonies. I have no idea what that will mean but am curious to see how they incorporate the online and social media into the celebrations with this one.

The other cool thing is this ‘Vectoral Elevation’ sounds kind of dirty but it’s not. They’ve added these lasers/lights to False Creek and during the games you can go online and choreograph them into different designs. Everything will be shown via web cam. I wish I was in my old apartment on False Creek – it would be cool to set the light show in my own back yard!

    Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable. [url=]More cheap air tickets[/url]
