Baglioni Hotels Paradores Spain - Spanish Paradors - Parador hotels Quelle est la place la plus sûre en avion ? Premièrement, l’avion est le moyen de transport le plus sûr. Ceci étant dit, dès que vous franchissez le seuil de votre porte, vous prenez un risque, aussi minime soit-il. Et pour tous les aérophobes panaoïaques, la chaîne anglaise Channel 4 va produire un documentaire (The Crash) pour déterminer une bonne fois pour toutes le fauteuil qui ressemble le moins à un piège mortel. Et voici la réponse… Après avoir équipé un Boeing 727 de caméras, de capteurs et de mannequins spéciaux avec des os qui peuvent se briser, les producteurs ont envoyé un avion s’écraser dans un désert au Mexique. Le résultat ? Pour être précis, les 11 premiers rangs ont été entièrement déchiquetés dès que l’avion a percuté le sol. Même si les preuves sont accablantes pour les premières classes, Boeing insiste (naturellement) en disant que « aucune preuve irréfutable n’est apportée ». [The Telegraph via Digg]

Grab a Luxury Cruise at up to 80% Off Last Updated: 4/13/2014 16:33 PST A luxury cruise is one of life’s pure joys. Today’s modern cruise liners are engineering marvels; floating 5-star hotels that offer the best service, accommodation, cuisine, and activities. They visit exotic locales, with non-stop relaxation or stimulation, depending on your pleasure. Over the past few years, cruise companies have spared no expense and literally invested billions in jaw-dropping super ships. Even if you’ve cruised before, you probably have not experienced anything like these new marvels. But, the best news is that due to the slowdown in travel caused by the recession and significant overcapacity in the industry, savvy travelers can now book once-in-a-lifetime cruises at insanely low prices. How does 80 percent off the brochure price sound? Founded more than 25 years ago, Vacations To Go realized that taking a cruise vacation was a new experience for many. But, what about the discounts?

How I Can Afford My Life Of Constant Travel I’m confused. I’m simply confused as to how it’s possible that I have so far failed to properly explain how I’ve managed to travel/live/work abroad nonstop for 12 years straight (and counting). The questions are still pouring in every single day: How do you do it? How is it possible to travel for so long? And while I thoroughly enjoy communicating with readers (I’m being completely serious and encourage you all to continue sending your emails to me as often as you wish), the fact that these very questions are on the minds of so many of you out there has led me to believe that I need to do a better job at providing the answers. While it’s true that I’ve already written plenty of posts on the matter, clearly all of these posts, even as one collective entity, still fall well short of proving that a life of travel is not some crazy fantasy but a perfectly reasonable and easily attainable lifestyle option instead. So what am I to do? December 25, 1999: March 2000 October 2000 January 2001 April 2003
