I was just reading the interesting article re: pilot Amelia Earhart in the Smithsonian Magazine, so I decided to make this notable woman the theme of this week’s TBT blog. I was also excited to see that there was a mention of the new Josh Gates show coming up on The Travel Channel–Expedition Unknown I liked his previous show Destination Truth, so I’m looking forward to the premiere of Expedition Unknown. Yes, the show’s premiere–and Josh Gates–investigates the mystery and lore surrounding Amelia Earhart. Subscribe and check out the intriguing Smithsonian Amelia Earhart article here. In looking up links for the blog, I discovered there’s an Official Amelia Earhart blog! Seems a good place to start for a holiday history quest! Visit the Expedition Unknown page here, and venture over to Josh Gates’s page as well. Enjoy the holiday, if you’re celebrating aka indulging in rabid consumerism and eating to excess!
