Wearing the Wrong Shoes in Cinque Terre Will Get You Fined Starting April 1. – Normally, your choice of shoes while on vacation isn’t a problem. But some people think hiking in flip flops is perfectly acceptable. Anna and I visited the Cinque Terre a couple of years ago on our romantic $12,000 Italian vacation that we only paid $1,200 for. It was so picturesque and beautiful. I highly recommend visiting if you travel to Italy.
You Can Do Outdoor Yoga With Lemurs at This Hotel in England. – And I thought goat yoga was as cute as it gets. I want to stay at this hotel in England for one night just to hang out with the lemurs!
Has Southwest Airlines lost its LUV? – As Matt states, Southwest operates as an island. Sometimes that is good, sometimes that is bad. The airline should be more proactive, but they cannot (and should not) cancel every flight that operates with a 737-MAX because they never know when the planes will be ready to fly again. I think canceling 3 to 7 days out would be a happy medium. Canceling the day of is just cruel to those who are counting on the airline to get them to their business, personal, and leisure destination.
9 Secret Rental Car Hacks You Need to Know. – Some great suggestions here. Definitely use your credit card primary or secondary rental car insurance to protect against vehicle damage. If you pass through a toll, make sure you log in and pay the toll manually. Otherwise, the rental car company will charge you a fee for paying the toll on your behalf. Consider using Costco or AutoSlash to book your rental car for even more savings.
TSA’s New 3D Scanners Will Let Travelers Keep Laptops in Carry-On Bags. – Good news for the occasional traveler. Those of us who have TSA PreCheck have had this luxury for years. I think figuring out ways to expedite passengers through security, while still keeping everyone safe, is a good idea. The faster we all move through security, the longer we can enjoy the airport lounges!
