Want to know what not to do when you fly the friendly skies? Just ask British socialite Clare Irby, a descendant of the Guinness family, and random dude Daniel Melia, who may go down in history as the worst passengers ever. They tore s**t up on an 11-hour flight from India to London—they were so punk-rock that the cops were waiting to arrest them on the tarmac. The two got it on while Clare’s two-year-old son cried and Daniel’s girlfriend slept nearby. When the GF woke up, she and Daniel got in a fight and he threw his iPod headphones at her. Meanwhile, Clare woke sleeping passengers, demanding wine and accusing the in-flight staff of stealing her bag filled with diamonds. The ruckus continues, after the jump. Keep reading »

Glamping: Camping For The High-Maintenance Set

I’ve never understood the appeal of roughing it. Communing with nature can be fun for some, but I prefer a concrete jungle any day. Modern amenities like hot showers and flushing toilets are necessities to me, not luxuries. But pretty soon I might be singing a different tune because, apparently, “glamping” is on the rise. Glamorous camping sites make roughing it a little more palatable because most of the comforts of home are available in the outdoors, making camping an upscale vacation option. Most glamping establishments currently cater to a very upscale clientele, according to The Wall Street Journal, but you can turn a normal campsite into a glamping paradise with our suggestions after the jump. And for more info on everything glamping, check out GlampingGirl.com. Keep reading »

Six Tips For Having An Unbelievable Staycation

Last weekend, while some of my friends were off on weekend trips to grand places like the Poconos and St. Louis, I was in the place you can generally find me: home. But, thanks to a little planning, I felt like I had traveled hundreds of miles away from my apartment and had a relaxing, indulgent two days.

The Frisky Guidebook: The Mile-High City

Maybe it’s the altitude. Or all the hard-bodied, active, young folks sauntering around. Or maybe it’s the fact that the city is exactly one mile high. Regardless, Denver has come into its own as a city that demands the nation’s attention (perfectly proven by the recent kick-ass DNC event). If you’re lucky enough to visit D-Town, don’t just hotfoot it to the mountains; take a few days to explore the city. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to discover why the natives like to do it at 5,280 feet. Keep reading »
