US State Dept Warns Of Travel Danger Nations PDF Print E-mail

The long list includes 88 countries around the world, with some already familiar to senior wanderers as extremely hazardous for Americans. Of course, they name North Korea, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Libya. However, the list also contains popular, and usually peaceful destinations, including France, Italy, United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

The top of the official list starts with the most violent, and urges Americans to just stay away. For most of the more popular countries, the advice is to practice ordinary daily caution. In summary, especially for physically-challenged senior travelers venturing abroad, be constantly aware of potential dangers.

New York NY: Fly Uber Copter From Manhattan To JFK PDF Print E-mail

If you’re enrolled in the Uber Platinum or Diamond plans, and have the cash or business expense account, you can book it. That way you’ll avoid the slow two-hour ground traffic to and from the John F. Kennedy Airport.

Of course, it’ll cost a bit more than a cab ride, from $200 to $225 each way, and more during the busiest hours. The choppers are owned and operated by HeliFlite, based in Newark, N.J., each with a two-pilot crew. For more info, go to www.uber.com/blog/new-york-city/uber-copter

San Francisco CA: Robbery Housing Costs Keeps Rising PDF Print E-mail

The City by the Bay becomes more and more infamous for its grossly overpriced rentals and real estate prices. Spurred originally by high salaries at tech companies, the average one-bedroom apartment rent now is $5k a month, and a small row home in the city sells for a million bucks.

Of course, at the same time and for the same greed-inflated reasons, San Francisco has one of the fastest growing homeless populations in the nation. It’s a daily problem for those paying the sky-high rental and home purchase prices to live there. Walking on city sidewalks requires stepping around or over many people, their belongings, trash and bodily droppings.

If your travel plans include San Francisco, expect very high prices for restaurant, hotel and airbnb private home rentals. Also, when you stroll down the street, expect to encounter many very high addicts and their very low lifestyles.
