“Travelling is more than having a destination in mind;
it’s discovering a place in your heart you’ve never been before.” — Mark Amend
#1 A Song and Dance by a University Men’s Choir
Who: 75 talented members of The Baylor University Men’s Choir.
Where: Onboard an Emirates flight from Nairobi, Kenya back to Waco, Texas.
What: How’s this for in-flight entertainment? The choir broke into a song called ‘Da Coconut Nut’ by Filipino musician and composer Ryan Cayabyab. “It was a spontaneous performance for the crew,” says a representative for Emirates. The entire performance was posted onto Emirates Airline’s Facebook page, receiving plenty of compliments such as this one by a user named Candy Sturm: “Is it weird that I am also clapping my hands after they finish their song and I am not even on board with them?” True that!
#2 Hilary Duff Was Robbed After Posting Vacation Photos
#3 ‘Despacito’, More Than Just the Song of the Summer
Who: Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber.
Where: Puerto Rico.
What: It seems like people really do want to see how they do it down in Puerto Rico. Around this time last year, Puerto Rico was hit hard by the Zika virus. Who would have thought that a Justin Bieber remix would be Puerto Rico’s tourism saving grace? Hotels.com reported that searches for travel to the island have gone up 45 percent within the first two months of the remix’s release. Confirming that, page views for Puerto Rico on TripAdvisor went up too, as did searches on Expedia.
