travelbyte: Kitty Scratch Fever in Taiwan
I can't actually take any big trips this summer, so to fend off the seasonal travel envy and angst I'm starting a mini virtual vacation exploring the wondrously weird travel destinations that...well...defy description. First stop? Taiwan, for a dose of Kitty Scratch Fever.
Like the fever, the fascination with Hello Kitty is inexplicably infectious, though perhaps not entirely benign. If the accessories, posters, and other accoutrements weren't enough, now travelers can literally live La Vida Rosa with Uni-Resort's Hello Kitty-themed guest villas. Strange but great find, Unusual Life and Hello Kitty Hell. We should have a South Park mountain resort in Colorado....
