Last week I wrote about a bizarre story about two strangers performing a sex act during a Delta Airlines flight. What made the story odd was that the FBI was investigating the situation.

I’m not exactly sure of the laws but does the FBI really need to be involved? Can’t local law enforcement where the plane lands just give a summons or some sort of fine? Continue reading Update On Strangers Who Performed Sex Act During Flight

When you fly in a private jet I’d assume that the service has got to be top notch. All of the attention is on you and your small party of fellow passengers.

When you fly commercial, odds are pretty high that there are many passengers for the flight crew to take care of, regardless of what cabin you’re flying in.

The most personal attention that we’ve ever had was on a flight with Singapore Air when Kim, Lucas and I plus one other passenger, were the only ones flying in Business Class. Continue reading Woman Was Only Passenger On 189 Passenger Jet2 Flight To Greece

After reading this you might want to reevaluate the idea of using one of the amenities in your hotel room in the future.

Luckily, the majority of hotel rooms come with a hot water kettle so you can make a cup of coffee (or tea) in your room. Continue reading You Might Not Want To Use This In Your Hotel Room

Most people like JetBlue. They have free snacks and free entertainment like WiFi and DIRECTV. No, they don’t offer free checked bags anymore but what could be so bad about the inflight experience?

We love experiences which include animals while traveling.

In 2012, I wrote about My Top 5 Animal Encounters. It could probably use an update with A Visit to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital being added to the list.

One day I’d love to pay a visit to see the swimming pigs in the Bahamas. Tragedy struck these special pigs a few months back. Who knows if regulations will change, stopping tourists from interacting with the pigs in the future.

I came across another interesting animal experience on Corsica France but it might be wise to keep your distance. Continue reading Sunbathing Cows on the Beach in Corsica, France- Don’t Take Selfies!

Woman Suing Hotel For Getting Pregnant From Affair

Hotel
Not the hotel from the woman’s stay…

This has got to be one of the odder stories I’ve come across in quite some time…

A woman is suing a hotel in Halle, Germany due to a three-night stay from back in 2010. She had an affair with a man, only knowing his first name- Michael.

Then, nine- months later she had a son, “who she believes was the result of the encounter,” according to T+L. Continue reading Woman Suing Hotel For Getting Pregnant From Affair
