Update: we’re still working on turning the domain from what it is now (i.e, a few pages of hastily- and poorly-written lies) to something that the current owners and operators could actually be proud of. That’s the good news; the bad news is that you’ll have to suffer through the content that is already here for a little while longer. Sorry!
However, the people who are currently responsible for these pages are actually well-traveled and interested in exploring the world (and not simply cribbing from the relevant pages on Wikipedia!). We promise you high-quality experiences whether its local travel options, unusual places to see, delicious out-of-the -way restaurants, gifts to buy, and observations of both the world and life that will impact your sense of knowledge and even luck. Yes luck! One of the benefits of living in the modern world is the availability of experiences online. So while we’re en route in Spain, or ensconced on a mountain top in Peru, if the broadband is functional, we can also be searching for “online slots USA” and playing our favorite casino games. All of us here at HowsYourWorld.com are players. Jana is a blackjack ace, Li is the poker dude, and I love the no-skill feature of slots. Be forewarned, our explorations are bound to be interlaced with Texas Holdem and bonus slots. So of course, we’ll be commenting on the best casinos in the real world along with the most enjoyable cyber casino fun.
Because of the number of requests we’ve received, I would like to offer this aside regarding gift baskets. They are easy to create and make all those smaller gifts that you bought on your travels seem more special when seen packaged together in a unique container. Remember, a “gift basket” doesn’t have to be an actual woven basket. It could be decorative hammered tin container, a gaily painted hand made wooden box, or a tie dyed fabric scarf. Those little french macaroons, Swiss jellies, German carved animals, Chinese paper lanterns, shells from the Tunnels Beach, Kauai, Hawaii or volcanic rocks from the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily all of a sudden are seen in a different perspective when tucked into a gift basket. So, be creative!
Also, we plan on offering some truly interesting choices (most of these are okay, but Los Angeles? Really? I mean, no offense to those of you who do enjoy the city, but “Exploring the World” probably shouldn’t mean “exploring prefabricated, superficial, shallow nouveau-riche cities that revolve around the business of mind-deadening, profit-driven exploitation that desperately pretends to provide a valid aesthetic experience”.
Ciao, Nǐ hǎo, Salut, Hallo, Konnichi wa, Hola, Privet!
