Imagine having that chest pain occur when you are in a foreign country. If you experience a serious illness or injury while traveling, it’s likely you will want to come home for treatment.

First, thanks for nominating my lens for LOTD. I enjoyed this lens and shared your adventure. We were just in Penang and stayed at the Eastern and Oriental and you should see it now. It is truly magnificent. The bar is still the original so you’ll still recognize traces of the hotel’s history. Ok, so Bon Jovi didn’t send us his private plane to get to his concert, but my friend Angie and I did buy tickets on a small commercial airplane to zip down to St. Louis for the show. We live about two hours north of St. Louis, and I have discovered that taking the commercial plane is the way to go. My round-trip ticket was about $99. Yes, that is more than gas would cost, but we saved a hefty parking fee at the hotel. Plus, we did not have to deal with St. Louis traffic on a day when Bon Jovi was in town.

After flying into Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital city-the largest and pretty much the only city in the country-and spending a day or two there, I’ll travel to the town of Pokhara by bus, where I’ll meet Ingo. In addition, the staff at most hostels are extremely accommodating and knowledgeable about the local area. Unlike many staff members of some luxury hotels, who travel in from the suburbs and rarely see the city in which the live, hostel staff tend to live in their city, and they have an intimate knowledge of the local attractions, including which attractions are can’t miss and which ones are a waste of money. A vacation to one of the top 10 travel destinations, Austria, would not be complete without a skiing adventure. Known for it’s skiing resorts among the Alps, there are also historical buildings, museums, and dazzling mountains to discover.
