Most Annoying Airline Passengers

Travel website Expedia has released its yearly survey of airplane annoyances and for the third year in a row, “seat kickers,” took the top spot. Does the person sitting behind you really not realize that them kicking the seat is the most infuriating thing they could do on an airplane? The survey is actually quite funny and very accurate.  From an unattended child, poor hygiene and sloppy drunks, there are plenty of annoying stereotypes on airplanes everyday, so, which is the most annoying?

From an unattended child, poor hygiene and sloppy drunks, there are plenty of annoying stereotypes on airplanes everyday, so, which is the most annoying?

 Huffington

Speed Daters

I’m sure we’ve all experienced the single guy or gal who is trying to get numbers the entire flight and acting like a horny 15-year-old virgin. There isn’t much worse than being trapped on a plane next to an annoying jerk with bad cologne who won’t stop hitting on you.

 Swifty

Frequent Bathroom Breaks

The girl or guy who is sitting in the window seat yet has to get up and pee every half hour. Try putting a cork in it or maybe stop drinking from that gallon of water you brought on board. If you have to pee so often maybe an aisle seat would have been better.

 

PDA

To the young couple who are obviously on their honeymoon or having an erotic affair, get a room already. No one wants to watch and hear you make out for any amount of time and especially not while we are all trapped in an aluminum tube. The sound of someone kissing is like fingernails across a chalkboard and very annoying.

Remover of Clothing

OK, guy who sleeps with his shirt off, you aren’t in your home, so let’s keep our clothing on. Or how about the jerk who immediately takes his shoes off to reveal his personal stank to the entire plane. Now I understand why every seat has a vomit bag, for your stinky ass feet, sir.

 

Smelly Foods

OK, lets all stop bringing tuna and other smelly foods on board, PLEASE! I love a good tuna sandwich just like the next guy, but I am considerate enough to leave that fish sammy at home. If you really must eat a tuna sandwich, maybe scarf it down pre flight, so all we smell are your fishy farts.  Stop being annoying and think about others, please.

 

Armrest Wrestler

OK armrest cowboy, let’s maybe share that valuable piece of real estate. I y=understand that you feel the need to mark your territory, but if you continue to be a jerk, ill have to get nasty. I find that the armrest wrestler is usually susceptible to a sharp accidental elbow, “woops, didn’t see you there.”

 SF Gate

Immediate Seat Recliner

We all have experienced this annoying savage. The rude dude who reclines his or her chair the second the plane takes off, not even waiting for the plane to reach cruising altitude. Hey buddy; there are other people on board.

 

Line Cutter

The jerk who has to get on board before everyone else, but didn’t find it necessary to wait in line like all of us. This same jerk is the one who has to try and get off the plane first even though they are sitting above the wing, calm down speed racer.

 

Talker

Ok grandma, me putting on my headphones means, ”I don’t want to talk to you,” but she never gets it. I don’t understand passengers that feel the need to talk to me, I don’t need more friends and I planned ahead and brought things to entertain myself, maybe you should have thought ahead too.

 

InfiniteDrunkie

OK, I sometimes get a little nervous before a flight, so I’ll knock back a cocktail to relax, but I’m not getting embarrassingly drunk. Maybe try and drink in moderation or you’ll end up being the talkative guy, guy who pees all the time or the jerk who hits on everyone. So sober up drunkie, my kids are on board.

 

Loud Headphones

If I can hear your headphones and they are on YOUR head… they are too loud. Lets all try and be civil and keep the volume to a normal level.

 

Smelly Neighbor

Too much perfume or not enough deodorant are the two most common causes of the smelly passenger. Let’s be mindful of how we smell and maybe put some deodorant on ya stinky bastard.

 Salon

Pay Attention to your Children

The dreaded unattended child, wreaking havoc on the passengers while the parent doesn’t give a damn. I’m not a babysitter and I sure as hell am not in charge of your little sugar filled monster, so keep an eye on them and maybe be a parent at least while they are in public…geez.

 

Rear Seat Kicker

The number one jerk on an airplane for the third year in a row is the seat kicker. Personal space invader, leave me alone and mind your surroundings, we are all on this plane together, so let’s try and be nice.

Helicopter Tours That Raise Hairs

Imagine flying amongst the clouds as you glide through the sky in a helicopter as your mind is blown by the incredible views.

     If adventure is what you seek, there is no greater way to see your vacation destinations than by helicopter. Imagine yourself flying amongst the clouds as you glide through the sky in a helicopter – the mind blown by the incredible views. There is no better way to enjoy attractions then up a couple of thousand feet in a rotary-winged machine. They may be loud but a helicopter ride will easily be the most memorable experience from any vacation. Check out the best destinations to take a helicopter ride and see things from a truly unique vantage point. 

Las Vegas

     Las Vegas is one of the busiest helicopter tour destinations, with plenty to see in a short ride. From the Vegas strip to the Hoover Dam to the granddaddy of them all, the Grand Canyon. A helicopter is the only way to see the Grand Canyon in all its glory and majesty. The Grand Canyon is over 270 miles long and can be 15 miles across; something that grand needs a copter to see it fully.

Niagara Falls

     Most people will tell you the best view of Niagara Falls is from a boat in the water beneath the falls, but that’s not true, obviously, the best view is from a helicopter. Niagara Falls is just a massive sight to see and with all the tourists that jam the site, it can be difficult to have a perfect vantage point. If you really want an amazing view that is unforgettable, you must see the falls from a helicopter. Imagine the immense beauty of something so powerful as Niagara Falls seen from above in the peace of a smoothly flying helicopter.

Kauai, Hawaii

     If you have seen the beginning scene of Jurassic Park then you know that in Kauai there are waterfalls only accessible by helicopter. Kauai is known as the garden island because it’s so lush and only 20% of the island is accessible by car. The island has many amazing sights that have to be seen by helicopter to understand how massive they are. The Na Pali Coast is the Western side of the Island and is characterized by the huge, steep mountains covered in green ferns. The entire side of the island is unreachable by car and a helicopter is the only way to see it or you can traverse the 17 miles up and down over a two-day hike. The Waimea Canyon is called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific as its massive and beautiful. Plus there are a dozen or so mega waterfalls you have to see from a helicopter.

New York City

     New York City is the mega-metropolis city that we all love and never have enough time to see it all when we visit. If you want to really understand how huge NYC is, you have to see it from a helicopter. Imagine flying between the skyscrapers, above the central park and around the Statue of Liberty. New York is such an expansive city it’s nearly impossible to catch it all in one trip, but a great way to check it out is a few hundred feet up, in a whirlybird.

Talking A Walk In The Best Beer Gardens Around The World

Drinking beer with your best buds, in a beautiful environment, with our drinkers can be a beautiful experience.

Published

     Drinking beer is always a great time, but doing it in a grungy bar can get old. Feel good about sipping your suds by drinking in a beautiful beer garden. You will have tons of room in a magnificent outdoor bar where you can stretch out and really take down a pint or two.
“But where are these gardens?” I hear you asking.

HOFBRAUHAUS, MUNICH, GERMANY

     This is the beer garden that started them all. The Hofbrauhaus has been in business since the 1500s which means they know what they’re doing when it comes to brewing the brew. That makes this the ideal place to get a humongous mug of brew and slurp it on down.

MOUNT TAKAO BEER MOUNT, TOKYO

     Head on over to a beer garden at one of the highest elevations in the world at the Mount Takao Beer Mount. This destination will give you fantastic views of the beautiful skyline of Tokyo which you can marvel at while chugging down a nice ale. The only way to get up there is either hike up or ride in a cable car.

BOHEMIAN HALL AND BEER GARDEN, ASTORIA, NEW YORK

     Head over to Queens and get your beer drinking on at the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden. You can play ping-pong here as well as listen to live music so you don’t have to talk to your friends that much. Now you can say “Hey! I’m drinkin’ here!”

KONIGLICHER HIRSCHGARTEN, MUNICH, GERMANY

     If you want to find the biggest beer garden you can then head to Koniglicher Hirschgarten. This place is smack dab in the middle of a 100-acre-park so you have beautiful sprawling views of Munich and some tasty brews to boot. Now that sounds too good to be…brew.

CAFE VLISSINGHE, BRUGES, BELGIUM

     Head to Bruges’s oldest bar at the Cafe Vlissinghe. If you need a place to wash all that chocolate down then grab a drink here. In one word, this bar is charming. Actually, in four words it’s charming to the max.

LETNA BEER GARDEN, PRAGUE

     This beer garden has one seriously awesome view. You can drink while strolling along the Vltava River. If you’ve ever done some drinking around a river then you know it is quite possibly the best place to suck down on some suds. This place is great because it gives you the option of hiking with your brew or just taking it easy and taking it all in.

BROUWERIJ ‘T IJ, AMSTERDAM

     This place used to be a bathhouse and now it’s still relaxing its patrons but this time with beers, not steam rooms. This place is beautiful mostly because it is directly next to a huge windmill making it for a real unique drinking experience. Now that is definitely too good to be brew.

     Riding on a zip line is the thrill of a lifetime. There is nothing quite like jumping off and feeling the wind rushing through your hair as you propel over various bridges or trees. No matter where, you’re bound to feel like a true superhero. We talked to our travel team and came up with our favorite zip line adventures around the globe so you can keep on zipping!

Zip World Velocity
     If you find yourself in Wales then be on the lookout for the longest zip line in all of Europe. This thing travels along 1,600 yards… you will definitely be getting your money’s worth here. You will take a long, effortless ride over beautiful mountains and water, glazing over many beautiful sites. We suggest you have a convenient camera handy. If that sounds too big for you, they have a smaller version available to you as well. You can still get your thrills without freaking.

El Monstruo
     Puerto Rico is home to many great zip lines but none better than “El Monstruo,” translating to “The Monster” in English. This is officially the longest zip line in the world according to the Guinness World Record books. This line is astoundingly 8,300 feet long so you will be zipping on down for over a mile. Jungles are cool, especially when you get to experience them from a bird’s eye view, literally! You will be one fast bird too, considering this ride gets up to speeds of 95 mph so if you’re looking for a serious thrill then this is the one for you.

Cloudscraper
     Thrillseekers beware, the Cloudscraper is scarier than you may think. This zip line is super high up and will definitely make the hair on the back of your neck stand up when you take in the whole experience. You will get a beautiful view of the incredible Royal Gorge as you fly overhead. You’ll feel a lot like Wile E. Coyote right after making a wrong turn, except you won’t fall when you look down, you’ll just scream in ecstasy as you enjoy your fantastic ride.

Zipflyer
     When most people think about Nepal they don’t think about the awesome thrill-seeking adventures they can partake in besides climbing Everest. Well, maybe Everest will soon take a back seat to zip-lining thanks to the Zipflyer in the Himalayas. This zip line is unique because you will partake in a 2,000-foot vertical drop that will leave you squealing with delight. You better be an adrenaline junky if you want to take this zip line on because it is for sure to shock and amaze you all the way down.
