Here, in no particular order, are eight more memorable tweets from the past month that evoke a sense of place, or that offer some humor or insight about the travel experience.

First bear sighting of the Canada trip today, a huge grizzly in BC! Traffic whizzes past on the Trans-Canada, he eats shoots & leaves.

The older I get, the more I wish I could turn left when I board the plane.

Starbucks machine, are you there? Joaquin at LaGuardia deserves a raise, for giving “frappucino” 2 or 3 bonus syllables.

Every year I buy a box of Imodium for my traveling pharmacy. I take, maybe, 2. A year later, they’re all gone. Conspiracy? Dimension shift?

Ping chucks mango after mango in the back of the pick-up. “Ha!” she says. “Tomorrow big mango juice at my house!” Now we go dig mushrooms.

Vegas imitated NY by building NYNY. By the looks of Time Sq., NY is returning the favor.

Busload of Hungarian kids arrived at the hostel. Staying in rooms both above *and* below me. Also, the power’s out. Hold me.

Travel tip: If booze isn’t sold at your gate (EWR, terminal B, gates 40-47), ask the shoeshine guy if you can lick some of his polish.
