It should come to no surprise to anyone that airports & airplanes are filthy. There are thousands upon on thousands of people crammed into a building or traveling through the air in metal tubes every day and their hands and fingers have been in lots of icky (and sometimes downright nasty) places and who knows when was the last time any of them have washed their hands or even if they did a good job of it.
You’d think that bathrooms would be the dirtiest places but nope, that’s not even close…

Here’s a familiar scenario for some people (not all, but definitely some): you’re in your seat on the plane and every time a young child goes by, you cross your fingers and maybe say a little prayer. “Not in front of me, not next to me, not behind me, not near me, please, please, please.” And sometimes you luck out, but sometimes not so much. And you wind up with a little one next to you who cries for the entire flight. Or there’s one behind you who kicks your seat incessantly. Maybe there’s one directly across the aisle and is in a screaming match with her little brother the whole trip. Or it could be the one who’s in front of you and stands on his seat so he can smear his boogers on the top of his seat back, right where you can see them.
Of course, sometimes you get a well behaved angel sitting near you, who’s quiet, does what his/her caregivers say, and at the end of the flight, I hope you praise the child and caregivers for how well behaved (s)he is. I know I do. But back to the times when there’s a very disruptive little one sitting near you…

If you’ve ever flown on an airplane, you’re well aware of the safety sphiel the flight attendants give to help ensure everyone’s safety in the event of an unplanned landing. Sometimes when a plane has to land unexpectedly, though, it’s not for a safety-related emergency but for, shall we say, other reasons. Like these…

Travel bloggers are always writing about the best and easiest ways to rack up frequent flyer miles, and they go on and on about what airline they’ve flown in First Class, and where they’ve gone around the world and how little it costs. Even regular travelers are happy to share their experiences about flying to far away places they only dreamed about visiting, or even when they fly just a few states away to go to the wedding of their best friend from college.
But what if you’re afraid to fly? Driving places can only get you so far (literally and figuratively) and driving across the country will quickly eat up a whole lot of your vacation time.
So THEN what do you do?
