Travel with Africah, the newest of the endeavors of Africah Harrigan, is a weekly blog that features activities, events, and fun things that she has done while traveling. Throughout her years of traveling, Africah has often found that people are a lot more enthusiastic to explore or try new things once they venture out from their hometown. However, they are the same people, who often overlook the beauty and attractions of their hometown and will probably opt to remain homebodies or follow a daily routine.
Whether you are a traveler or not, her philosophy is to “Live Life like a Tourist!” No matter where you are. By this, she means to explore new activities, attend a variety of events, or tantalize your taste buds with a new delicacy. Each place is unique. For instance, you can drive on a highway in Portland, Oregon that is parallel to snow-capped mountains, or drive alongside the aqua blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the waterfront in downtown Charlotte Amalie, U.S. Virgin Islands! Sit back, relax and join the journey with her.

Think all #Castle fans are still "processing this news..." from last night's episode. If you haven't watched it, you need to stop what you're doing and go watch it NOW! "Bad Santa" [aka Have Yourself A Mobster Little Christmas] was written by Dara and Chad Creasey and directed by Bill Roe. What started out as a light-hearted Castle-Family-Christmas-Rhyme-Fest, took a significant turn in the very last scene. Tonight's STR Round Table MAY involve a colorful set of responses to Elena's questions:

In last night’s episode of Castle we saw a giddy Rick get the opportunity to live out some of his childhood fantasies and hang with a few of his Action Hero idols. Throughout the episode we were also given the chance to be right there along side Beckett while she packed up her treasures and said goodbye to her apartment, her home, for so many Castle episodes/seasons. This home held so many emotional memories for her and the audience that it was nice to be able to see Beckett embrace her memories and be hopeful for her future in her new home with Rick Castle. “Last Action Hero” was written by Christine Roum and directed by Paul Holahan.
Here are Elena's STR Round Table Questions for tonight:

It's time to focus on the holohoax and hoaxers again as the 70th Anniversary of what they call the "liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau" approaches. January 27th is the date that was decided upon by the Israeli-Jewish contingent (scroll to bottom of page) at the United Nations in 2005 for an annual "Holocaust Remembrance Day" (Week), and was thus also taken up by the Polish goverrnment's star tourist attraction, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial/Museum. They have launched a special website just for this event, expected to draw many Jewish luminaries.
With Vladimir Putin coming out so strongly this year against any and all holohoax revisionism, I see it as a sign of the increasing tightening of the criminal code all over the world in order to prop up this hoax as legally protected permanent history.
Poet and Bird have the pleasure of sharing time with our old friend, Martin Townend. We discuss TT history, the impact the TT Races has on the island, what it takes to stage the TT, the role of course marshals. There will be a ton of content that could be deemed "ephemera" but is actually quite useful to anyone planning a trip to the wee island.
We had so much to share on Los Angeles – here is part 2. There are so many interesting places to see and things to do that are low cost or free. Tune in and find some great places to visit. If you missed part 1, it aired on October 15th and you can listen to the archived copy of Los Angeles part 1.
When we say Los Angeles, we are referring to the entire metropolitan mass of cities and towns that the locals call 'The Southland'. From the Pacific beaches to Disneyland and across town to Universal Studios and Hollywood, the tourist flock to Los Angeles every year. But we have uncovered some places that most out-of-towners miss and few locals take the time to explore. The best part is that these destinations don't cost an arm and a leg and generally are not crowded.
The City of Angels has great history, lots of international culture, beautiful gardens, and an abundance of amazing man-made monuments and architecture. There are spiritual centers of many faiths, quiet and scenic hiking treks, incredible food options, and shopping like nowhere else. If you are travelling to Los Angeles this year, or maybe you're a local who needs to get out more, we've got the ideas for you. Guaranteed to interest both old and young. So join us as we Get Real! in Los Angeles.
We have ideas for you in a wide variety of topics from traveling with kids, great get-aways with someone special, health and wellness tips, healthy lifestyle keys, relationships, current events and trends.

LanceScurv goes in on the recent Electric Daisy Carnival that was held in Orlando Florida because of the underlying issues that this event revealed that many who live in Central Florida refuse to acknowledge.
For those who do not live in Orlando and visit as a tourist, there is a fierce takeover of many Black neighborhoods here by corporate interests that are backed by the local government who are both driven by greed and other self serving motivations.
Most who live here and abroad who occupy these key positions in government, law enforcement and media know exactly what is going on and work together seamlessly to orchestrate the obvious gentrification that has eaten away at these traditionally Black neighborhoods like a cancer.
The Black communities such as the Callahan, Parramore, Washington Shores and Orange Center areas as well as the eventual covert and well planned takeover of the Richmond Heights/Carver Shores neighborhoods have forces at play that are very aggressive yet thrive under the radar of those who do not have any contact in these areas.
Because of the media and how they slant their coverage of the aforementioned areas, the general consensus of those who don't live there is that it's a drug infested, downtrodden, crime ridden burden to society and a blight on the beautiful face that Orlando shows to the world who arrive here in record numbers to eagerly enjoy a wonderful vacation in the manufactured engineered paradise that we all know Orlando to be.
The Black residents who live in these neighborhoods are regularly demonized by the media making it a bit easier to not hear their cries of harassment when the police do just that in blatant fashion.
The Blacks who live there in the minds of those who are bloodthirsty for that precious real estate that lies underfoot must be banished from there by any means necessary so that they can move on with the business at hand.
This episode we will speak with Pauline Salzer of The Passport and Visa Company to discuss the different required documentation for international travel. Pauline will speak specifically about Brazil with the Summer Games on many people's radar, now is the time to learn what you will need.

We'll also discuss tourism trends in Brazil, the many Unesco Heritage Sites, Wellness, and Ecotourism. And of course provide the available package for the Summer Games in Rio Summer 2016.
