Something you maybe didn’t know about 2011

This post has nothing to do with travel but, since it’s almost the weekend, it’s time for something a little different!  This year we will experience four unusual dates:1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11 and 11/11/11.  Now then… take the last two digits of the year you were born and add the age that you will be this year. Tell me if you don’t get the answer “111”…!
