The Morning Shave

How coronavirus will change your travel “bucket list.” – With travel restrictions and risks affecting our ability and willingness to travel, many people are turning to domestic travel instead of far-flung places around the world. This is especially true in the short run when people are much more willing to drive for a getaway than hop on a plane. There are many wonderful things to see and do within a day’s drive of home. Maybe it is time to explore them instead?

6 Distance-friendly, No-touch Greetings Used Around the World. – We’re so used to handshakes and hugs when we see friends, family, and new acquaintances. But all that needs to change while everyone social distances and works hard to keep their hands germ-free. Which of these distance-friendly greetings will you adopt?

14 Permanently Closed Disney Rides We All Wish We Could Ride One Last Time. – There is something magical about the nostalgia of Disney theme parks and the rides we remember growing up. Time goes on and old-school rides are replaced with new innovations, but that doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t want to experience them one more time. Which of these rides was your favorite?

Aarogya Setu App Set To Act As An E-Pass For Air Travel As Govt Seeks To Make It Mandatory For Flying. – India is one of the first countries to propose requiring a contract tracing app mandatory for travelers. This app will act as your e-pass for travel within the country. And it will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (or other future viruses) by being able to communicate quickly and effectively with people who have been potentially exposed to sick people. I can imagine that many other countries will adopt similar technologies in the months ahead.

Future Air Travel: Four-Hour Process, Self Check-In, Disinfection, Immunity Passes. – As much as we dreaded some of the security measures at airports, there is a strong sentiment that the airport experience is going to get worse. With enhanced screening procedures, increased disinfection efforts, and much more, the act of getting into the airport for our flights is going to take much longer in the future. Unfortunately, I don’t know how we’ll be able to speed it up (ie: Global Entry, TSA Precheck) without some universal testing process that is embedded into an app.

  1. I miss the Skyway to Tomorrowland and Mister Toad’s Wild Ride in the Magic Kingdom. The old WEDWAY people mover there was pretty great as well.

    • Mister Toad’s was so much fun. A college girlfriend of mine worked at Disney and they had a “future” exhibit near Star Wars. They presented a lot of early technologies that have since become our norm.
