How far would you travel to catch a glimpse of Pope Francis?
This is a question one family answered, and the distance will absolutely astonish. And that is just one of the fine stories we have collected throughout the week.
We also have a reminder that the very finale of a long flight may just feature some explosive and rather deplorable behavior.
But this week was far more about the pleasantries of travel, which may just mean cameos from beloved stars from our most precious pop culture franchises.
And, like always, feel free to chime in with any suggestions you might have from the week that was.
Pope Francis Road Trip:
An Argentine family decided to take a trip in the family truckster, something that is not all that uncommon.
What is remarkable is the fact they spent 13,000 miles together to see Pope Francis on his tour of the United States.
We got a couple of Halloween bombshells this week. First, we found out that St. Helens, Oregon, has been throwing a fantastic Halloween party every year.
And second, we learned that the location of the movie “Halloweentown” is welcoming back its famous witch this year.
Azealia Banks Loses Her Mind:
Azealia Banks pretty much freaked out when her airplane landed at LAX earlier this week.
She allegedly took umbrage with a hand being put up as she tried to push past a tourist. That is when all hell broke loose.
Comic Con Trek:
Steve Wozniak is slowly procuring an all-star lineup for his inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con next year.
This week we learned that none other than William Shatner would be in the building to celebrate one amazing Star Trek accolade.
Lastly, we leave you with this poignant look back at the late Amy Winehouse.
Thanks to a recently surfaced video, we get a glimpse at the great singer before she became a worldwide celebrity.
