Step Right Up! The Traveling Brown Girls Blog Carnival is in Town!




Tuesday, August 14, 2012

There's a Carnival in town!!
Step right up.  Hurry, hurry.


Traveling Brown Girls Blog Carnival
Topic > Travel Etiquette:  My Top 5 Travel Pet Peeves

Intro by Carnival Host @OneBrownGirl

Someone should write a book called The Ten Commandments of Travel Etiquette. I would buy it. In fact, I would buy dozens and give the much-needed Travel Etiquette Rule Book out as gifts to people prepping for their first trip and to people who travel frequently. Particularly frequent travelers. But because it's easy to toss a book aside and blow it off as irrelevant (even if it's not), I think travel industry brass should have the Ten Travel Commandments laminated on the top of every tray table on airplanes and in every cabin on cruise ships. That, or throw in a bunch of messages (subliminal or otherwise) in the Boarding Announcements. But wait.


I also think there should be a separate set of Commandments for folks that work in the travel industry; i.e., snarky flight attendants, grumpy ticket counter agents, rude gate agents, stuffy pilots, Must-Need-A-Vacation telephone representatives, and I-Could-Care-Less administrators. Everyone in the travel industry, whether traveler or worker, could use a refresher from the Travel Etiquette Police Rule Book, don't you think? I know I do.


To that end, I am pleased to share with you the first stop on the Traveling Brown Girls Blog Carnival circuit where Brown Girl travelistas (and the people who love us) from all over the Blogosphere will share with you their Top Five Travel Pet Peeves. Hopefully, you won't see yourself in any of their posts. And if you do, well...er... um...kindly take note.

Even though I can name at least another 50 Traveling Brown Girl bloggers, this is an awesome turnout for a first time effort! I just love it when the Carnival comes to town! =D

Thanks so much for organizing this, Tracey! It was so much fun! :0)

Yes, yes, travel staff definitely need a set of rules. Nothing worse than being pumped to travel and the person who starts off your whole journey puts you in a bad mood :(

This was so much fun! Great idea. Looking forward to loving your blogs. :)
