Yesterday, I was attracted to an ad in the free daily paper that is distributed on the Subway. Bear in mind that this is a paper published in Toronto.

Trailblazing Trips for 2009!
Our Top 4 Tours Under $400

Trekking Thailand - 6 days from $300
journey through Jordan - 7 days from $300
Blue Cruise Turkey - 4 days from $375


Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? la la la

Reading further (I had to take my glasses off for the next part in the ad, even though I now have really good reading glasses) to the small print:

Since prices are only "from" ,I guess anything can be included; say, 1 free cocktail, a complimentary plastic bag, free hitchhiking lesson, and , not to be sniffed at, 1 complimentary "get out of jail" card. Sounds like a killer way to start 2009!!
