Share Your Most Memorable Travel Experiences!
We are seeking members to share one or two most memorable US or World travel experiences so we may share them on our Travel Experiences Wall. We are looking for a quick synopsis of where and what you did and how it impacted you. Please visit our Travel Experiences Wall page to share your experiences. When you share your story you will be entered in our drawing. Once we receive 100 travel experiences we will draw for a wonderful America the Beautiful pop-up book by master paper engineer Robert Sabuda. This book interprets the classic American anthem "America the Beautiful" in dazzling dimension.
Passports With Purpose
We support non-profit Passports With Purpose's 2012 fundraising campaign to help provide access to clean drinking water to impoverished people. Each donation of $10 gets you an entry to win prizes such as a week stay in Provence, France, an Amazon River Cruise, apparel, and other gifts. You pick the prize that you are entering. Please visit Passports With Purpose to donate.
fundraiser ends 12/11 at 11:59 PM PST

Apparently, even Google Maps had this one wrong! Scientists recently discovered that a South Pacific island, known as Sandy Island or Sable Island and referenced on Google Maps and other maps actually does not exist! Read more about this interesting case of un-discovery on cnn.com.
