Surviving a Cancelled Flight 101: Schadenfreude

October 29, 2012 at 2:04 PM | by | ()

Now that Hurricane Sandy is upon the East Coast and canceling flights in droves, we're dedicating today to using all our travel know-how (and some on-the-fly advice, as half the Jaunted team is stuck at airports as well) to help you ride out the storm despite delayed travel. Stay tuned and stay safe!

As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, those of us who are away from Jaunted's various East Coast HQ's are sending other staff members pictures of sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns (in decreasing order). It's kind of entertaining.

You can play this game too if you're stuck somewhere interesting. We actually suggest it.

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is the sister park of our beloved San Diego Zoo, with the two being located about 30 minutes from each other. It used to be called the San Diego Wild Animal Park but then their branding people got a hold of it and changed the name/screwed up all of our tags. C'est la vie.

Long story short, the Safari Park has a slew of baby elephants—see here and here for posts they wrote about the August arrival—and we headed over to see them. They were splashing around in their exhibit's pool, and were (as expected) very small. The Park has had an astounding 12 calves born to the herd of African elephants that lives there.

So...flight delays. How awful are those, right? Send a jealousy-inducing photo to your friends riding out the storm now. It'll make you feel a whole lot better. Baby elephants are highly recommended, obviously.
