Senior Flier: Spread Wings & Lower Landing Gear PDF Print E-mail

Let’s face it. Loooong flights keep you trapped in that aluminum can called an airline seat, especially if you’re flying coach. To fight muscle cramps and other discomfort, next time apply the familiar suggestion: Don’t just sit there; do something!

Every couple of hours, you must walk to the potty in the sky. Use that trip down the aisle to limber up. When in the waiting line, perform simple exercises. Push against a nearby bulkhead to do a minute or two of standing arm stretches. The exercise can relieve tension in shoulders, elbows, wrists and fingers.

On this date, 110 years ago, the Wright Brothers started it all. Fortunately, unlike this year, it was not on a Friday the 13th. Also fortunately for Orville, there was no pre-flight TSA search, baggage fees nor guy in front slamming his seat back into Orville’s knees.

The World Cruise Ship: Live Aboard, Sail Forever PDF Print E-mail

For some retirees, buying a permanent cabin on the unique cruise ship, The World, would be at the top of their bucket list. Of course, to make it come true, the bucket would have to be filled with cash!

It’s called “the only private residential community-at-sea”, and the 165 privately-owned cabins on The World super yacht range from studios to grand suites, including private balconies. Although current information indicates full occupancy, residents are allowed to offer their property for sale. Prices may range from $600,000 for a studio on up to $13,500,000 for a suite. Homeowner dues start at $20,000 annually, along with ongoing expenses for the usual expenses of daily living.

Residents have onboard access to all the amenities of a luxury cruise ship or upscale resort. Included are a theater, six restaurants, deli, bars, pool, spa, beauty parlor and much more. It all goes with a life most of us can only hope to afford in one-week, once-a-year sailings.

Since the first scheduled cruise in 2002, The World has lived up to its name in visiting virtually every part of the planet. For example, the 2014 itinerary includes Spain, the Panama Canal, Caribbean Islands, New Zealand, New Guinea and many other Far East ports of call.

Total costs for living a life at sea? If you have to ask, as the nasty old saying goes, you can’t afford it. For more information, go to http://aboardtheworld.com
