This week we’re introducing a new feature – Weird Travel in which we investigate strange, odd and downright bizarre travel mysteries, places and even legends. Kicking off the Weird Travel feature, we are taking a deep dive into the urban legend that Walt Disney is actually frozen and located in Disneyland.
The creative process is just that, a process and ever since I started my blog more than ten years ago, I’ve always been retooling and changing the ways in which I do my work. That of course isn’t limited to my writing, but also my podcasting and I’m excited to announce the beginning of a new feature on Explore the World that I hope will be regularly occurring. I also hope that everyone loves it as much as I do because it combines some of my passions, namely travel, history, weird stories and legends and off the wall topics that haven’t been covered in great detail. I call the new feature Weird Travel and in it we will trace the stories and histories of bizarre places, odd facts, urban legends and bits of travel ephemera that you probably don’t know a lot about but I think will find just as fascinating as I do. I didn’t want to do this alone though, which is why I’m so excited to announce my co-host for this new feature, Patrick Kocicky.
I first virtually met Patrick through his podcast Gays Do The D, and after reaching out we very quickly became friends. Since then we have both appeared on each others’ podcasts and even had the opportunity to meet in person when we were both in Walt Disney World for a runDisney event. His mix of intelligence, amazing sense of humor and innate curiosity made him my only choice really to help me with this project and I am so very excited and honored that he agreed to do it with me.
Patrick Kozicky lives in Minneapolis, MN. He is an Ensemble Member with DalekoArts, a theater company based in Minnesota. He is also co-host and co-producer of Gays Do the D, a Disney podcast with an LGBTQ+ point of view. He loves traveling, reading, dogs and popcorn. Passions include, volunteerism, social justice, and arts education. When he’s not busy saving the world (or at least saving the world from himself) he loves reading up on mysteries or true crime, and staying up late, watching horror movies. (with popcorn of course).
