Man killed during bull run in Spain pushes death toll to 10 so far for year

Man killed during bull run in Spain pushes death toll to 10 so far for year | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
As the number of towns holding bull runs grows to nearly 16,000, the death of a man in his 40s pushes the toll to equal the record of deaths set in 2009
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Tourists are an incredibly inane species, somewhat like the lemming or the dodo in individual intellectual prowess. Without that stupidity, the running of the bulls would never be such a major event. Let's face it, those who are watching want to see blood and those who are taking part—well, they want to feel that they are better than others. Yeah, I admit it, I'm not a fan of bull fighting either; but I do love a good steak, and that's no bull. Matter of fact, it's more likely a steer.

This Is the Only State Barack Obama Has Never Visited as President

This Is the Only State Barack Obama Has Never Visited as President | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
As of Friday, the Mount Rushmore state will be the only state President Obama hasn't visited while in office
Kenneth Weene's insight:

If Mr. Obama goes to South Dakota, perhaps it could be to visit one of the Native American communities to highlight how much development assistance they need and don't get from the state, which is doing so well not because of its government but its oil.

12 Amazingly Beautiful Secluded Beaches (beaches, travel, places, islands, relaxation, sun, surf) - ODDEE | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
There's nothing like a relaxing day on the beach, but being surrounded by tourists and screaming kids might not be the day off you dreamed of. That wouldn't be a problem at these beautiful and totally secluded beaches from around the globe. (beaches, travel, places, islands, relaxation, sun, surf)
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I'm not a beach person, but boy this are beautiful spots. As our thoughts in the Northern Hemisphere turn to summer, I figured we could all do with a bit of beach time (even if most of these are south of the equator).

8 incredible travel destinations inspired by adventure novels

8 incredible travel destinations inspired by adventure novels | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

An engaged reader is one whose mind wanders to faraway lands when turning a page. An inspired reader is one whose life changes after shutting the book. For some, reading a good adventure novel isn't enough. They need to live it.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

I hope my love affair with Maine will encourage readers of Broody New Englander to visit, but I won't reveal the actual town because the entire state deserves a visit. Ayup.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

I can see this collection of locations spawning too many Steven King style stories. But the realities are quite interesting and some of the settings really lovely. I've been told that living in a ghost time can drive one insane, but I've never found that necessary a necessary condition.
