When you’re at work, it’s definitely not fun if someone tries to interrupt what you’re doing. It can definitely make it difficult to perform your duties to the best of your ability.

Just before an Alaska Airlines flight a passenger “catcalled a flight attendant while she was demonstrating how to use a life vest in case of an emergency“, according to the HuffPost. Continue reading Man Removed from Alaska Airlines Flight for Calling Flight Attendant Sexy

A little over a week back a tourist left the boardwalk near a geyser at Yellowstone National Park. This led to the tragedy of the man falling into a boiling hot spring, costing him his life.

At Yellowstone, it’s illegal to walk around off of the boardwalks for two reasons- to protect the park land and the visitors.

Just around a week after the tragic event described above took place, another tourist wandered off of one of the parks boardwalks and now he’s going to pay for it. Continue reading Tourist Fined $1000 for Collecting Water at Yellowstone National Park

When I first read about this story, I figured it had to be some sort of April Fools Day joke. The problem is that we’re in the middle of September and it isn’t a joke!

In one of the more unbelievable and ridiculous stories I ever read about inappropriate behavior on a flight, this probably takes the top spot.

The Huffington Post reports that a man urinated on passengers during a JetBlue flight. Continue reading Man Pees On Other Passengers During JetBlue Flight

It isn’t easy being a flight attendant.

From making sure everyone gets seated in time for take-off, figuring out the puzzle of the overhead bins, meal-service and making sure that we’re safe, there’s definitely a lot of responsibility involved.

While the job of a FA sounds way too stressful to me in some ways, there are some things that we could all do to help make their jobs a bit easier. Continue reading Flight Attendants Ask You To Stop Doing This

While I was away in Myanmar I came across an article about an unfortunate reason a passenger was kicked off of a flight.

When I first read the title, I definitely felt bad for the passenger. However, after reading the article I wasn’t sure if I would side with the passenger or the airline.

So why was this passenger kicked off? Continue reading Cancer Patient Kicked Off Alaska Airlines Flight

No More Reclining Seats For This Airline

There have been many occasions (when flying) where I’ve fallen asleep before takeoff and never bothered to recline my seat during the rest of the flight. This is usually the case on short flights. On longer flights, I can’t say that I don’t like to recline my seat and I see nothing wrong with doing so. If the seat wasn’t meant to be reclined then it wouldn’t have the capabilities to do so.

I recently came across an article from the Huffington Post: This Airline Is Saying Goodbye To Reclining Seats.

According to the article, Monarch Airlines announced that their new ergonomic seats will not recline. The decision to switch to seats that do not recline was based on customer feedback.

The One Thing You Must Do In Each State

Cliff Walk- Newport, RI

A few days back I came across an article from the Huffington Post that I thought about sharing. I kind of forgot about it until Kim sent me an e-mail with the almost forgotten article.

Kim sends me articles from time to time and when she does, they’re usually worth writing about!

The Huffington Post has an interesting and useful article:

  • This Is The ONE Thing You Must Do In Each U.S. State

While traveling outside the U.S. I’ve only rented a car on rare occasions. First of all, I’m not a big fan of driving and second, I’d much rather take public transportation since I find it a great way to get a feel for a city/ country.

However, there are times when public transportation just won’t get the job done. For some places, having a car to get around is essential. In some of these places a tour could always be another option. You might also have a limited amount of time during a trip and big plans (kind of like on our recent Quick Euro Roadtrip where we visited 3 countries in a little over 4 days- Italy, Switzerland & Liechtenstein) where public transportation would be way too slow to use to get around.
