We're Famous!

I'm not a writer. I majored in Computer Science and Math, so the only "writing" I did all through college was coding programs in C++. I am trying to garner your sympathy for churning out profound, insightful and hilarious material for you almost every week. Because I'd much rather be solving math equations.

Zhou and I happened to connect with a guy named Andy Hayes last week. (Yes, the Andy Hayes. If you Google his name, he's the one who comes up first.) He's a professional travel writer and photographer and the mastermind behind this site. Word of our site's immense popularity must have leaked across the pond to Scotland, where he is located, as he begged us to be featured in his weekly Thursday "interview with a celebrity." Ok, ok, you caught me - we submitted our blog to his carnival, and he reluctantly said he would do an interview with us.

Andy was a pleasure to work with this week, and we were very happy with the end result of the interview. Through the process I explored his site quite a bit, as it is full of helpful travel hints and great pictures taken throughout the world. A few of my favorite posts were:

The Best of Asia
A Photo Tour of New Zealand
Interview with Gary Arndt

I usually try not to shamelessly cross-promote, but usually is a very forgiving term. Also, the time that I would normally spend writing this post I spent doing the interview, so the links are a good way to lengthen this week's short post. And with that, we'll leave you with a link to our interview with Andy.

Oh, and a Cool Runnings video, just because.
