The Morning Shave
TSA is Changing Its Dog Strategy to Stop Scaring Children (Yes This is Real). – I never thought about it until now, but it makes sense that dogs with floppy ears are less scary than pointy-ear dogs. It is cool to know that dog handlers have baseball cards for their dogs that they can hand out to children.
TSA Names Boston’s Logan ‘Airport Of The Year’. – Ok, it’s good that Logan had the speediest security lanes. But shouldn’t the fact that they found a record number of firearms put Boston’s airport at the bottom of the list? Because that means that a record number (or close to it) of people also tried to bring guns into the airport!
I didn’t think the $1 billion hotel considered ‘the most luxurious in the world’ could possibly live up to the hype. I was very wrong. – Wow, this hotel is considered the world’s first 7-star hotel. From the pictures, I can see why. Every detail is completely over-the-top in luxury and detail.
Mexico and New York Are Top Holiday Destinations for U.S. Air Travelers. – Despite all of the negative press, Mexico is the number one Christmas and New Year’s season destination. Anna and I just flew to Cancun in early December and loved it.
The TSA’s New Body Scanners Will Speed Up Your Next Trip. – The new scans will take less than a second and you won’t have to raise your hands. Excellent news for most travelers. Even with these enhancements, I would still recommend getting TSA PreCheck, Global Entry, or CLEAR (use my referral link for a free 2-month trial) to make it easier to go through airport security.
