Severe Penalties Or Worse For Tourist Selfies At The Airport PDF Print E-mail


Tourist selfie camera accidents keep rising, including several recent deaths at the Grand Canyon. In efforts to stop the deadly trend, there are laws established in some parts of the world to ban selfies in tourist areas. For example, you can get arrested and jailed in Bangkok, Thailand, for trespassing on airport runways while doing dangerous selfie attempts.

Of course, the best way to avoid selfie accidents and arrests is to make sure you and everything around you is totally safe and permitted when you point your lens. Some creative senior photographers go ape at runway flight lines, canyon edges, tall rooftops, fast traffic and other danger sites.

Hollywood CA: Homelessness Continues To Grow PDF Print E-mail


Advice to senior travelers. In daily outings, your travel4seniors.com editor encounters more and more hopeless wanderers. The walks are along Hollywood’s busy Santa Monica Boulevard, the final miles of Route 66 before it ends at the beaches. Many tourists use the same streets, including the famed Hollywood Walk of Fame, and see similar sad sights.

Most street people have drinking, drug and/or mental problems. The inclination of many kind-hearted senior tourists is to give them money. Actually, you’d be doing them much more good to contribute those dollars instead to agencies established to help the unfortunates. Consider the Red Cross, Salvation Army, PATH and other effective organizations.

 
Q: Why Did Flight Attendants Stop Stowing Our Bags? PDF Print E-mail


I’m a 73-year-old passenger, and have trouble lifting my bag into the overhead. Years ago, the stewardesses always were willing to help. But on recent flights, they refused. What’s the official policy? BBL, St. Louis MO

A: Because of flight attendant union actions several years ago, they’re no longer required to do the heavy lifting. The best way to avoid doing it yourself is to travel lighter. Try smaller, softer bags, preferably those you can stow under your seat instead of needing to hoist them up into the overhead space. If you still insist on carrying bigger ones, politely ask a strong fellow passenger to do the heavy lifting for you.
