As most of you know, I recently contributed to the travel/drunken social commentary guide, 101 Places to Get F*cked Up Before You Die. Leafing through my hardcopy, I am absolutely amazed and impressed by how well-written of a publication this is, and extremely proud to be a part of it. And… http://katkatravels.com/giveaway-win-an-autographed-copy-of-101places/
Only one more week until Christmas! There are tons of gift guides floating around the internet, but not all of us are savvy shoppers. Luckily, my gift guide is useful for those who forget to buy a loved one a gift literally at the last minute:

Little gifts I’ve gotten from student teaching – so adorable!
I know, I know – I’ve been terrible at updating this site for the past four months. BUT it’s not because I’m lazy and distracted – it’s because I’ve just been TBTF – Too… http://katkatravels.com/?p=1929

Restauracja Stylowa is anything but a “stylish restaurant,” but it’s the only place to grab a bit in the suburban district of Nowa Huta, just outside Krakow, Poland. I think the owners had opened the place in the 1980s, closed it, and reopened it… http://katkatravels.com/?p=1558
Yeah it was ridiculous, riding in a 48-passenger coach bus containing only 10 people, but when was an opportunity like that ever going to come along again?
