    Things You Should Never Bring On A Flight

    Things You Should Never Bring On A Flight

    There are a few things that you should not bring on any flight. It is a known fact that bringing weapons of any kind on a flight is a very bad idea with severe consequences. You will go to jail. Also, bringing pets is another no go. You don’t want to have to deal with a barking dog or meowing cat. Avoid bringing liquids too. These will be taken away at the security part of the airport. There have been cases of terrorist trying to bring in liquid bombs. Lastly, avoid bringing lighters and sharp objects on planes. This is a given as you will be searched and questioned for bringing flammables. Overall, follow these flight etiquette rules and you will not be punished for your actions.

    Tokyo

    Tokyo

    Right before I had decided to live in the highest skyscraper in Boulder, Colorado I had signed up for the CIEE Program. I saw studying abroad as one choice only and that was to re-visit Japan. If I went it would be my second time to visit the country and so maybe I chose the location as it seemed less scary and intimidating. Perhaps I picked the location out of curiosity of where my ancestors had lived. The trip had already been laid down in my life path in fact, as I did go to Tokyo and that did happen.

    The Sweet Pain of Leaving

    The Sweet Pain of Leaving

    Ever since I was a child in the 1950's, standing on the wharf of Melbourne pier to board the immense ship that was to take us to Europe, I have never recovered from the excitement of embarkation.

    York to Cork and Back Again

    York to Cork and Back Again

    It began one Friday afternoon. I was just thinking about my schedule for the following week, which I needed to send out to some online students in order for them to book some slots with me the following week, when the phone rang. It was the company I do TEFL teacher training for. I usually teach once a month for 20 hours in Hull, East Yorkshire and another 20 in York. This month I’d been lucky and had spent the previous weekend delivering the course in Liverpool too. This was because the teacher for Norwich was ill and it was easier for the Liverpool teacher to cover Norwich and for me to teach in Liverpool. Now I was asked if I would like to teach 20 hours in Cork, Southern Ireland.

    Nothing to Declare?: Revisiting the (Proposed Wider) Laptop Ban

    Nothing to Declare?: Revisiting the (Proposed Wider) Laptop Ban

    Months after the federal Department of Homeland Security banned large electronic items on U.S. bound flights originating in the Middle East, the agency is ready to double down in unsettling ways, with a proposed ban on laptops and tablets in cabins of U.S. bound flights from Europe. It hasn’t happened yet, but there’s a sense that the Trump government is quietly laying the groundwork for putting a ban in place.
