Following on from my recent post about travel buzzwords, I wanted to share a link to an amusing piece about five new types of travel. ‘Bungee climbing’ and ‘cramping’ get a mention, but my favourite has to be the proposed ESL tour. It’s inspired by the success of Eat Pray Love-themed tours.
“Based on Lynn Truss’s popular grammar-busting book Eats Shoots And Leaves, the ESL Experience takes you around the world in a quest to find the world’s most obvious spelling mistakes.
For those seeking instant gratification, the Home Tour takes you round London and New York, kitting you out with a chauffeur-driven car, a megaphone, a spray-can and a large marker pen – everything you need to ridicule and correct spelling mistakes you find, whether on restaurant menus, shop signs, billboards or people’s clothing. (We can’t always guarantee the locals will respond favourably, but remember – bad spelling is a sign they’re ignorant, so it’s for their own good).”
