Porn in the Sky

Porn in the Sky

OK, porn it is. As we all know, our all-time favorite consumer advocate and churners-slayer Chris Elliott loves controversies, and porn, let’s face it, fits the bill perfectly. So I wasn’t surprised to find his new article dedicated to this very issue: Should you be allowed to watch porn on a plane? I thought that thisContinue Reading

Sunday Mish-Mash. Loyalty Program Digest and Some Funny Stuff. Feb 09, 2014

First of all, I’m sorry. I know it’s been a while. Sorry. On the other hand, it’s not like something earth-shattering has happened in the last couple of weeks. First, I’ve finally finished my Angkor series, with two more reports to come, Bangkok and Koh Samui. Do check it out. It was a trip ofContinue Reading

Monday MishMash, 01.27.14: New AA Bonus, I Caught a Bug, My First Rental Dent Ever, and More

Dent and Sickness Good news first, My dent is not that bad. My rental was parked in front of the hotel registration building for twenty minutes and when I exited the building this is what I saw.   Am I 100% positive it hadn’t happened earlier at some other place? No, but I’m almost sureContinue Reading

Stay Lazy!

I do not want to invest my whole life into this hobby. OfContinue Reading

I Had to Go to Panama City for Two Days This Week

It wasn’t a pleasure trip. I went for my cousin’s funeral. She was a brilliant woman, successful at everything she put her mind to; business, writing, real estate. She was writing her doctoral when this happened. Despite her long-time illness, she would travel around the world over and over, and she was a mile-and-point junkieContinue Reading

New York Citi Bike Passes from $5

OK, so I am against riding bikes on the streets of Manhattan, and I have explained why in this post. But those of you who won’t listen have a chance to save about 50% off the rack rates, which makes it a killer deal if you are going to ride anyway. Here is the dealContinue Reading

US Air and American Are Now Free to Tie the Knot

This is my Sunday Post at Frugal Travel Guy In a surprising announcement on November 12, American and US Air declared that they had come to the agreement with the Department of Justice to settle (as DOJ put it) “Merger Challenge.” The agreement arrived on the same very day the DOJ announced that  “the JusticeContinue Reading

A Fake Pilot Grounded

It doesn’t take much for a foreigner to get arrested in the US. All they need to do is say that they hate Americans. See? Easy!
