Budget Travel really stretched for subject matter as evidenced by its article on the “hamlets of central Nebraska,” in the May/June issue. Why go to Paris when you can enjoy fried bull testicles at the Northside Bar & Café in beautiful downtown Burwell (only $7 for a half-dozen)?
Had it with the boring beaches of Bora Bora? Sick and tired of the same gorgeous pink sands and turquoise waters of Anse Source d’Argent? Try livestock water tanking! Yes, for only 20 bucks the folks at Glidden Canoe Rental (an obvious misnomer) in Mullen, Nebraska will strap you into a livestock-watering tank (hopefully it’s been sanitized) and set you afloat on one of the state’s many lakes or rivers. Each tank seats eight. Uh-huh.
