Travel Laws That May Surprise You

Today, I stumbled upon a really interesting article that I thought was worth sharing. While most of us who travel frequently are aware that there are different customs in different places, I doubt many of us would realize that there are some hefty fines out there related to strangely particular laws!

The article (which you can read by clicking here) shares laws related to swearing ($250 fine), using Silly String ($1,000 fine) and even hunting Bigfoot ($1,000 fine or five years in prison!).

If you'd like to see more strange laws, check out the Dumb Laws website.

Win a Trip to Disney for Four!!!!

Obviously, I'm a bit of a travel nut, so I'm always on the lookout for a good deal or giveaway. Today while catching up on reading some blogs that I follow, I found a link to this great contest where you could win a trip to Disney for 4!

It might seem counter-intuitive to share this with you, since obviously I work off of commissions by selling travel. But I firmly believe that everyone deserves a fantastic vacation - and that if you go somewhere and love it, you will do everything you can to try and find a way to do it again! :)

Anyway, so Mr. Food (who is a hilarious guy to watch, if you aren't familiar with him) is doing a contest where he's giving away a trip to Disney for 4, including airfare and hotel and park tickets. To enter, just click here!!

Good luck - and if you don't win, you can still get to Disney by booking through me. :)

Just enter below - the contest runs from June 3rd to June 30th! If you'll notice, anything related to my travel agency Operation Relax is worth more entries... just sayin'... ;) Good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway
