The Morning Shave
How to Beat Jet Lag Every Time. – As we start traveling again, articles like this are a great reminder of how to acclimate to the local time so you can get the most out of your vacation. For me, getting a shower and changing clothes feels so fresh and re-energizes me after an overnight flight. And splurging on a lie-flat seat can make all the difference on a red-eye flight. You won’t sleep as well as you do at home, but so much better than sitting upright in Economy.
Amid Air Rage Incidents, Should In-Flight Alcohol Service End for Good? – People are going to be dumb and act foolishly whether there’s alcohol on the plane or not. Flight attendants have the ability to refuse service to passengers, just like bartenders do. Unfortunately, they can’t kick passengers off the plane in-flight when they become unruly like a bartender can kick someone out of a bar. Some people are suggesting that some people would just drink more at airport bars before their flight since they know they can’t get a drink in-flight. This overdrinking could cause even more problems.
13 Most Expensive Mistakes Travelers Make Abroad. – These are important tips as you travel internationally. I use the Charles Schwab debit card when I travel to avoid ATM fees. And, I pay with credit cards with no foreign transaction fees to avoid surprise charges.
How To Use British Airways Avios For Cheap American Airlines Flights. – Avios are an excellent option for redeeming non-stop flights on American Airlines. The problem is when availability isn’t showing or when there’s a connection since British Airways charges by each flight segment vs. per one-way flight. This means that flights with connections can be up to 2x as expensive as a non-stop.
10 Incredible National Park Glamping Locations. – Camping sounds like fun until your back hurts from laying on the ground and you feel dirty from not taking an adequate shower for a few days. Glamping offers the fun of the outdoors with the luxury of a hotel for the best of both worlds. Now, mix in the beauty of our National Parks and you have a truly winning experience, especially Yellowstone National Park. I’d love to try some of these out.
