The Travel Architect & The Husband Team Up to Talk About Travel (Mostly)

Podcast episode 12 is available by clicking below.  It is also on iTunes at thetravelarchitect.

We’re back with another (long!) episode.  There’s a travel quiz for the musically inclined, which the Travel Architect is not.  We discuss luggage and offer petsitting advice before launching into a review of the second part of our UK road trip:  The Peak District.  Happy listening!

  1. I listened to this episode on my drive out to TX. I laughed so hard at brownies for breakfast month being compared to Little Debbie sponsoring the Tennessee Ironman, because you see that Ironman competition is Chattanooga (my hometown), and Little Debbies are made in a town just up the road, so Chattanooga proudly claims ownership. If only you could see the Ironman billboards that Little Debbie posts along the interstate each year.

    So when you commented to me a couple of weeks ago that you didn’t realize I was in Tennessee, “what’s that like?”. Well…Little Debbie sponsoring the Ironman triathlon is a pretty good metaphor!

  2. Haha, I knew exactly what WordPress badge you were going to mention before you revealed it. 1337 is a bit of an internet in-joke (not really joke but I can’t think of a better word for it). I used to see 1337 online a lot more about 10-15 years ago but its use seems to have died out a bit.

    If you look up ‘Leet’ or ‘Leetspeak’ on somewhere like Dictionary.com or even just on Google or Wikipedia you’ll get a better explanation. It’s essentially the inclusion of numeric characters replacing letters to form somewhat of an internet “language” if you can call it that. Somewhat similar to kids finding humour in making words on a calculator.

    1337 therefore becomes ‘Leet’ which is very much an internet-era word/number.
    I imagine WordPress honours it with a badge due to its internet prestige / history so I chuckled when I got that unexpected badge but it’s probably a little dated now. I’m sure many are confused when they receive it.
