Air Travel Was Never So Much Fun

travel

So, Virgin America Airlines starts a service from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. You book a ticket for yourself on the plane, or search for cheap flights to find deals elsewhere. Midway through the flight, the air hostess comes over to you and hands you an exotic-looking rusty-orange-coloured cocktail. But you didn’t order it. She then tells you that the heady drink is a gift from the cute guy in the third row, yeah, the one in blue shirt and khaki trousers. You gape at the air hostess and at the man who just waved at you in style. You can barely manage a smile. Mid-air hitting! Wasn’t that something that happened only in pubs and bars? Is it even allowed, you want to ask the cheeky hostess?

Shall we, mademosielle?

Well, it is. At least on the Virgin America flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. You wouldn’t expect any less from the flamboyant Richard Branson. Trust the enterprising tycoon to come up with something as quirky as this. On this flight, you can send a cocktail to a total stranger. All those who always complained that your co-passenger never turned out to be someone hot, can now relax. A flirty flight is assured for you. “As founder of the Virgin group, I’ve been in my share of compromising positions,” he says in “Sir Richard Branson’s Guide to Getting Lucky at 35,000 Feet’. Wonder if our desi Branson, a certain Mr Mallya, is listening. However, there is nothing the flight guys can do if you are turned down.

But there’s another attractive offer you can’t refuse. If you have travelled by this flight, and had a n interesting experience, you can win  a chance to travel on it again. Simply write about your experience and upload it … Read More ...

Outline – and prioritize – your needs

Because there are so many different choices to pick from when it comes time to rent a holiday villa, you’re really going to need to outline and then prioritize your basic needs so that you whittled down the options to something much more manageable.

Different parts of Majorca will offer you different opportunities (proximity to nightlife, to major attraction, quieter and calmer areas perfect for families, etc.) which is another reason why you need to outline and then prioritize your needs before you take the plunge.

Research your options ahead of time

The very best way to research all of the vacation villa options in Majorca is to actually get your “boots on the ground” by spending a little bit of time in the region, getting to know the different neighbourhoods and communities, and figuring out where you’d like your villa to be located.

If that is impossible, however, it’s not a bad idea to fire up Google Maps and Google Earth to get a top-down view or a street view of Majorca so that you can get a better feel of that particular area, the amenities available, and it’s … Read More ...

Travel with Something Sweet on your Feet

travel-adventure

I can’t think of a single thing that ruins a vacation faster than shoes that hurt your feet.  The last thing you want to suffer is the discomfort of ill-fitting shoes that cramp the toes, chafe the heel or offer little or no support.  I have an extensive checklist of items that I attend to before I set off on one of my annual adventures, and having my shoe collection upgraded, overhauled and supplemented has been a priority on that list for a long time.  Using Groupon to purchase my new Chacos is a good example of how easy it is to take care of this part of my trip.

Many times I’ve seen travelers standing in long lines wearing high heels, boots or uncomfortable shoes. The pain on their face is unmistakable.  I learned the hard way keep comfortable shoes with me on all phases of my trip, especially after one brutally long delay and cancellation left me stuck in the airport with nothing but a pair of high heels on.   That’s why my Chacos were such a good investment. I had them custom made and will do it again if they ever wear out.

Sandals, flip flops and shoes are must haves on my vacations.   Right now you can get a pair of Chacos with a Groupon and save 30% on selected footwear, or design our own unique pair.  They offer other promo codes and exclusives when you sign up for their newsletter and free shipping.Using a Groupon is easy as pointing and clicking on the deal you want from your smart phone or other mobile device.  So don’t let that good deal get away.  Before you head out the door to your next adventure, be kind to your feet and get a Chacos deal through Groupon.
