Need to go hiking before your flight to loosen your legs? How about some golf to practice your putting? More things you can do at airports around the world besides waiting around for your flight in hard seats and eating overpriced food.
Tip everyone everywhere. I think it is ingrained in me, even in cultures like Japan where they look at you strange when you leave a little something extra.
Mystery Illness Hits Cruise Ship, US Tourist Dies
Travel Video of the Week
The headline is a little deceptive. OK a lot deceptive. The mystery illness was actually the stomach flu. And the person who died had prexisting medical conditions that could have contributed to her death. But the point is that if you’re sick or even extremely out of shape, a trip of any kind could be hazardous to your health. Plus you’ll enjoy your trip more if you are active and alert. I can’t imagine a hypertensive and diabetic person like the woman who died could fully enjoy herself with her health failing.
Travel. Travel before you get old or life catches up with you and don’t know where the time went.
I was going to Cambodia to eat the still beating heart of a cobra. Never got around to it. But there are other things you can eat that will make others queasy and nauseous. Have great stories for your friends back home and brownie points for being so adventurous.
I think this is a cute idea. Get to the airport and meeting a loved one? You can create a banner to greet them. “WELCOME HOME!” “CONGRATULATIONS!”, etc. Not sure how many times I’ve seen that in airports but maybe if the machines for banners are then more people would do it.
Once that plane is in the air, the doors cannot be opened. The air pressure holds the door in place. Only Superman could open plane doors after takeoff.
I keep posting these articles up and will continue to do so until I take a cruise.
Germs are everywhere on a plane. So what can you do? Wash your hands, don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth, and carry disinfectant wipes for the seat tray and other surfaces.
Even if you need to buy your way in, the $50 may be worth it, especially if you have a long layover. The amenities and potential free food could make that next flight that much easier and, dare I say it, enjoyable.
Don’t wrap those Christmas gifts before your flight. Or else you might find that nice wrapping paper and all your work to put it on perfectly on the floor of the airport.
Doing an overland truck trip in Africa is one of those things that you really have to want to do, but once you get started it sounds like it would be a great adventure. Be ready for long rides, but you’ll have the safety of the group and an easier time getting through border crossings if you decide to go.
