Taking the stress out of air travel

share it Now!

Will we get to the airport on time? Will our luggage be overweight? Will we get a good seat?

Yes, air travel can be very stressful.

Last weekend my family and I flew from England to Manila on the PAL direct flight.

We had a long drive to London’s Heathrow Airport, but to lessen the stress, I decided to put into practice some commonsense tips I’d read about how to minimize airport stress.

First, allow plenty of time. Aim to arrive at the airport at least two hours before your plane leaves.

If you are ever in the South of England and you fancy some really interesting sightseeing, take a trip to Bucker’s Hard on the Beaulieu River in the New Forest.

Buckler’s Hard is a splendidly preserved 18th century shipbuilding village that hasn’t changed much over the years.

The sheltered waterfront location and the ready supply of oak, beech and elm trees from the nearby New Forest, made Buckler’s Hard one of England’s most important shipbuilding centers.

Somehow I can’t see this catching on the Philippines, but in the US it’s become a hot topic of conversation among funeral directors.

In June, New Orleans resident, 53 year-old Miriam Burbank died. Her daughters said she was full of life and everyone adored her. So when it came time to plan her funeral, they decided to reflect this and take an unconventional approach.

Property prices on the up - almost everywhere

The global house price boom continues apace.

Apart from strongly rising housing markets in the Philippines and Taiwan, the momentum seems to be shifting from Asia, where interventionist authorities have slowed housing markets in Hong Kong, Singapore and China.

Instead, the action is moving to the Pacific, the Gulf and to Europe, which are all seeing strong price rises.
