Fall Asleep In One City & Wake Up In Another, In A Moving Hotel (Take 2)

In 2016, some entrepreneurs solved the problem of finding reasonably cheap travel between Santa Monica and San Francisco. They got a double decker bus, redesigned it with 22 sleep pods, and began a service where you can fall asleep in a private bunk in one city and wake up the next morning in another.

“Huge Drug Bust” At London Gatwick Turned Out To Be Something Very Different

The British Transport Police is the national police for the railways in the U.K.. Every day they watch over the journeys of over 6,000,000 passengers, with the goal of getting them home, safe and sound.

The job of the BTP has been getting more and more difficult, with a higher influx of people taking trains across England, Scotland and Wales on a daily basis. In fact, in 2018/2019, there were 68,313 notifiable crimes. However there were only 60,867 in 2017/2018, so there was an increase of 12%.

The Travel Emergency Codes You’re Not Supposed To Know About

Lots of businesses have their own special codes for their staff to be aware of emergencies. When I worked in a hospital, “Code Blue,” followed by whatever floor, wing, etc. meant there was someone who was experiencing cardiac or respiratory arrest. In lots of places, hearing “Code Adam” means there’s a missing child (it was named after Adam Walsh, the little boy who was abducted in a department store in Florida in the early 1980s), Some of you may have heard of a “Code Brown” and frankly, I don’t want to be the one to clean that one up. 😉

The various codes have been established so businesses can quickly and effectively communicate with their employees without their guests, customers, passengers, etc. knowing what they’re talking about.
