What do Perpetual Travellers dislike most about Airports?

Image
Well, there is a lot to dislike about airports when you really think about it; for example, there’s the pre-travel arrangements for a start, getting to the airport, especially a Budget airport and if that isn’t bad enough we then have the pleasure of actually arriving to the airport itself, not knowing what we may find when we get there!

Depending upon which airport you find yourself in, the service, attitude and facilities can vary dramatically often lacking consistency when it comes to Rules and Regulations; by this I also refer to Security. It’s difficult to find 2 airports who operate by exactly the same system and layout.

What we need is a team of independent international “Airport Inspectors” representing consumers to check and regulate Airport facilities, in order to ensure that the Perpetual Traveller out there has at least some fundamental comforts concerning communications, toilet related conveniences, clean water, soap and somewhere to eat and adequate public seating. I’m …

Sunlight lowers Blood Pressure; could this be a boost for the Travel Industry?

Image
Ever since Coco Channel returned from holiday sporting a bronze Suntan some decades ago the Travel Industry has blossomed into the worlds greatest industry, which every country and region seeks to capitalize on.
In recent times however sun-tanning has been linked to cancer and it's becoming somewhat unfashionable partly due to health reasons. However, this could all change now, as Scientists weigh up the benefits of sunlight as opposed to the dangers. The balance is tipping!

The trouble with Science is that today's knowledge will be proved wrong by new knowledge tomorrow in ever increasing circles of knowledge. Researches at the University of Edinburgh have now found that exposure to ultraviolet light actually lowers our blood pressure.

It's commonly known that high blood pressure is one of the main risk factors in heart disease and stroke. Approximately a third of the population on earth suffer from this.

According to scientists, UV rays in sunlight cause nitrogen s…

The 10 best treks in the world!

Image
These 10 classic treks are for serious walkers. All of them require a sturdy pair of lungs, fit legs and a good amount of preparation. However, if you choose to go on any of these trails then you will be rewarded with experiences that last a lifetime. In no particular order:

1. GR20, France

This demanding 15- day (168km, 104mi) slog through Corsica is legendary for the diversity of landscapes it traverses. There are forests, granite moonscapes, windswept craters, glacial lakes, torrents, peat bogs, maquis, snow-capped peaks, plains and névés (stretches of ice formed from snow). But it doesn’t come easy: the path is rocky and sometimes steep, and includes rickety bridges and slippery rock faces – all part of the fun. Created in 1972, the GR20 links Calenzana, in the Balagne, with Conca, north of Porto Vecchio.
2. Inca Trail, Peru

This 33km (20mi) ancient trail was laid by the Incas and is currently traversed by thousands each year. The trail leads from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu …

Emirates Airline announce a Triple Decker Aircraft with a Swimming Pool and Park

Image
As an avid Perpetual Traveller you may have seen a post from Emirates which went viral at one point, that the airline unveiled plans for the world’s largest commercial aircraft. The so called Triple-Decker named APR001 apparently featured a swimming pool, games room, gym and park.

This aroused great interest and Emirates seemingly once again hit the headlines with a new innovation! Future passengers started to visualize leaving their seats and going for a leisurely swim in their on-board swimming pool facility. Alternatively, even a spot of fun at the games room.

Fact or Fiction

Before anyone gets carried away, it's important to check the date of the post on the calendar. The announcement by Emirates was actually posted on 1st April 2017, with the aircraft carrying the same dateline. Emirates hilariously posted the above/below images on the Social Media of its new facilities on board the futuristic and in fact imaginary aircraft "Triple-Decker APR001". In posts on Twi…
