When I was a student in England, everyone went to India for their gap year or their summer after A Levels. It was so common, that no one batted an eye. It was also so safe that mothers and fathers didn’t think twice about sending their daughters there.

vacation sex

How’s that for a headline? I came across it the other day and thought I’d send it out to you all because travel and sex go together like apple pie and cheese.

The Italians, of course, have been doing it for ages. Where else can you sit on the roof of Havana’s Saratoga Hotel, mojito to hand, listening … More…


No Booze on Turkish Airlines? And hey what’s up with those new uniforms?

Yes, it appears that Turkish Airlines will stop serving alcoholic drinks in all its domestic business-class flights, apart from six destinations. Alcohol was already unavailable on domestic economy-class flights. Critics believe that this is further proof of an increasingly Islamic crackdown on this once very Western country. The latest ban was justified by officials on non-religious grounds. They said it was due to that alcohol service in business-class flights was being eliminated because of “low demand and logistical reasons.” Of 36 domestic flights, 16 offer business-class service.
