personal and travels

Archive for the ‘travelwise’ Category

At work, majority of our hotel guests are tourists from different countries. Usually Tourists traveled miles just to make a tour to witness the beauty of the country and its people. Some of our guests were too confident making tours of their own without any tour guides. I just wondered how they made it to drive and find the place wherein they were not familiar with and were able to come back to the Hotel? I found out, they were using handheld gps. It is a satellite-based navigation system that navigates locations all around the world and provides time information in all weather. It helped them enjoy the adventure of travelling without getting lost.

Hubby is a frequent traveler, and every time he travels, of course there is that extra concern for his and the whole aircraft’s boarders’ safety. But it seems we will have less worries soon, for up to three American Airlines jets will be outfitted this spring with laser technology being developed to protect planes from missiles fired by terrorists. The anti-missile technology was developed for military planes, and U.K.-based BAE Systems PLC said Friday it won a $29 million contract from the Department of Homeland Security to test it on passenger planes, but not on regular flights. The technology is intended to stop a missile attack by detecting heat from the rocket, then responding in a fraction of a second by firing a laser beam that jams the missile’s guidance system.

My seatmate

I was so glad I made it to my flight, I did not miss it. So I leaned on the seat and relax for a while from the excitement of the minutes before. Oh God, I was sitting next to a man who has a very powerful underarm that can create headaches! A very bad underarm odor, and in few minutes, I found out it was just not the problem, he has a bad breath, bad breath in the sense that every breath he took, grrrr. Well, I was not judging but I couldn’t help to be disturbed so. Have you sat next to one with strong body odor? I easily get headaches and that time I would have migraine. In the entire flight I kept leaning sideways to avoid the breath and the “bomb” under the arm, anyway, I wanted to rest so I just tried to keep my face away and tried to sleep as much as possible. So learn how to treat bad body odor.
