This week, our favorite travel blog posts take a look at the people behind the industry. From an enlightening interview with the Frugal Traveler to the rudest airline employees, there’s never a dull moment with these travelers.

Gadling reports American Airlines has the rudest employees, according to a recent survey. Equally interesting is which carriers ranked the best.

Go Big or Go Home found the world’s largest group of carolers – 502, to be exact – in Westport, CT.
Nomadic Matt sits down with the Seth Kugel, NYT’s Frugal Traveler, to find out his most interesting trip (he’s been 3 times) and, of course, his best budget-friendly travel advice.

Carry On shares their 6 travel etiquette rules on the Today Show, just in time for holiday travel. No more wondering about who gets the armrest on a plane, how to silence noisy hotel neighbors and what to do about reckless taxi drivers.

Behold, Slate’s new photo blog, takes a look into the absurd world of fake holidays with shots from photographer Reiner Riedler’s new book, which was inspired by the temporary beaches in Berlin and Hamburg, Germany.

See what else happened this week — including romantic celebrations on 12/12/12 — with our This Week in Photos gallery!

    The caroling event, "One Voice," not only broke a world record, it also raised $4000 for a local charity!

    I am a loyal watcher of Hotel Impossible. I've seen every one. However tonight was probably my last. Ten minutes of the show and then ten minutes of commercials. REALLY!!!!! That relates to 30 minutes of show for a one hour show. Sorry but I have better things to do.
