Have Camera, Will Travel

One of my favorite things to do with my "killed time" is travel. Well, really fantasize about traveling. It's a boring sounding word, but riding a train through Ukraine on my way to Sevastopol while eating native berries that don't even have a name in English was one of my favorite experiences ever.

Since I've headed east already, next I'd love to go west, and down. Down under.

If you are headed to Australia, you can stay at the Darling Harbour Hotel in Sydney, or the Melbourne Hotel in, you guessed it, Melbourne!

Though it's a bit more expensive I'd reccomend Sydney. It's right on the water and there's tons to do! Although if you're going to take a 15 hour flight, why not hit all the hotspots?

Activities include historic King Street Wharf, Australian National Maritime Museum, free outdoor entertainment, the Harbourside Shopping Centre, and all sorts of dining options, from Vietnamese to Italian to Spanish tapas. Australia was once used by the British as a dumping ground for all sorts of debtors and unsavory types, and that has resulted in a culture full of interest and diversity, one well worth visiting.

If you do decide to go, check out! And send me a postcard!

Something for Everyone

Did you know that it is illegal to own or drive a car unless you are covered by auto insurance? Sometimes if you borrow a friend's car their policy will cover you temporarily, but not always.

Advantage Auto Quotes sells all types of car insurance, including commercial and business insurance, sports car coverage, classic car liability coverage, and teen driver insurance.

If you live anywhere outside of a major city, you've got to have a car, and to do that, you've got to have insurance! Advantage Auto Quotes can give you a free quote today!

Here's a random assortment of things I've been killing my time with: is a free site with a lot of fun games. It's pretty well done (I especially like "Big Bang"), but you can't make any money unless you first deposit some, which goes against my money-earning principles, but maybe not yours.

Big Winner Cash Games is a similar site, however as soon as you make a deposit, you can withdraw the money, even if you haven't played any games! I haven't tried this yet, but they say they give you a 50% bonus on your first deposit, so if you put in $10, they give you $5, you withdraw the $10 you put in, and you have $5 complimentary to build and earn with!

I've been looking for other places with an even better setup (i.e., you can earn without having to put in money, like Prizee) so if you see any of those, let me know.
