Celebrate the pig in France by squealing like one and then eating one. This and many other cultural events celebrated in Europe.
If there are ads in the bins, I don’t notice. I’m just trying to get through the security lines without being pulled aside for the “extra special” treatment from the TSA. If they can use the revenue money for something that can help the traveling public, so be it. But somehow we know that won’t happen. OK, I’m a cynic.

Hiram Bingham Train to Machu Picchu
Makes sense doesn’t it? Wearing a tracksuit or short shorts will not get you to first class. The airlines hope you will be the type of person who might want to PAY to upgrade next time as opposed to sitting in economy. They have nothing else to go by but your outwardly appearance. Here is where dressing to make a first impression might really have some tangible benefits.
As a driver in New York City, I so believe this story…
The trust flier programs will be very limited initially. Frequent fliers and and elite status fliers will be the first for the program. Then there is the question of the yearly fees to stay in the program and how much information do you have to give up. This really won’t help the infrequent flier or someone who can’t afford the costs.
I think this will show that the smaller ships are a viable option for cruisers as opposed to the megaships that have every amenity you can think of.
The debate that never ends. Unless something is spelled out concretely by governing bodies, leave the devices off and listen to the direction of the flight attendants…or else you might be meeting with the police when you land.
Gross. Yuck. Ewww. You fill in the words for this unbelievable list. All true according to the flight attendants reporting on it.
Looking for things to do in big cities that don’t cost an arm and leg is really not hard when you think about. You just have to look in other sources. And the Internet has so many articles and posts that you should be able to find something on any city in the world.
Interesting considering that many consider the US State Department to be very conservative when it comes to warnings and advisories. But it looks like they use the same warnings that the State Department employees in those countries would use.
Frequent flyer miles are easier to come by and they are harder to come by. Yes, I know that was an oxymoron, but somewhat true. By opening credit cards and bank checking accounts, you can accumulate miles without ever stepping on a flight. Everyone should be looking into this even if you are not a frequent flyer.
Beyond the warnings in the article, I am still annoyed that I can’t travel to Cuba without the US government giving me a hard time if they find out about it. We need to lift the restrictions so that Americans can travel there if we choose.
You may feel a little apprehensive about visiting a favela in Brazil, or a township in South Africa. When I was in Cape Town I visited the township of Langa. What did I learn? Did I leer? Not sure. There is a curiosity factor sure but what are you gaining from visiting?
