What's Old Is New Again: Selling the Return Visit to Travelers | By Babs Harrison

Just maybe the most exciting 2019 trend for travel marketers may be the growing belief that today's travelers want - really want - to come back again to a destination they have visited. Call today's travel trend the Deeper Dive because that is exactly what a lot of travelers - in all generations - want. They are tired of superficiality, of always pursuing the new (yet another shiny object) and instead they want to go deep in a city or region or country or, sometimes, simply a neighborhood...

Ice hotels to stay in this winter

Most of us think of cozy beds and warm rooms after a day of playing in the snow. But those who love winter and unconventional lodgings would gladly trade memory foam mattresses and high-thread-count sheets for a night in an ice hotel that looks like Elsa’s frozen palace. Built by snow architects and artists, ice hotels are ephemeral and make for a very cool experience. Here are seven of the craziest ice hotels from around the world where you can spend a frosty night. 1. Ice Hotel Jukkasjärvi...

What is Crashed Ice?

It might not be an Olympic year, but you can still get your fix of crazy winter sports. Downhill ice cross might be the most extreme winter sport you’ve never heard of. It’s basically snowboard cross except with ice skates on a track of ice. Decked out in protective hockey gear, athletes race up to 50 mph down a precipitous course filled with hairpin turns, hills, and vertical drops. Crashed Ice, the sport’s biggest world tour, is created and managed by Red Bull, and it debuted in the United...

Human heart found aboard Southwest

This is the definition of a heart-stopping flight. When the crew of a Southwest Airlines flight on Sunday discovered a cargo shipment containing a human heart, the flight was forced to turn around. The plane had been en route to Dallas from Seattle when the organ was discovered. It had been left on the plane from a previous flight from Sacramento and was supposed to be offloaded and delivered to a hospital in Seattle before takeoff. Thanks to a baggage mix-up, this never happened. In order to...

Strangling the Politicians

In my last post, On the Distress of Farmers, I wrote “that Indians will never be free until the last politician is strangled with the entrails of the last bureaucrat.” I was echoing the European Enlightenment figure Denis Diderot (1713-1784) who wrote: La nature n’a fait ni serviteur ni maître; Je ne veux ni donner ni … Continue reading Strangling the Politicians

An elderly couple in their tiny old Tokyo shop

A few months ago I posted this photo of the 90-year-old woman below. A lovely lady who has been running her little sweet and cheap toy shop for a truly astonishing half a century. What I didn’t know, however, was that her husband also helps out from time to time. A man of a similar age, and a similarly gentle demeanour. But nothing lasts forever, and it was suggested that the end of this year will be time to pull down the shutters and finally call it quits. A day that will obviously be tinged w...

Island in the Falklands is for sale

Penguins might be your favorite animal, but visiting them in their natural habitat is unfortunately pretty tough. Now, however, you can actually own one of those natural habitats, as long as you have a proclivity for farming and don’t mind shelling out some serious cash. Pebble Island, one of the Falkland Islands, is home to five species of penguins — as well as 42 species of birds and sea lions, 6,000 sheep, and 125 cattle — and its owners are putting it on the market. No one has lived there...
