With respect to the writer, the last thing we need on a Thai beach is some poor fellow sitting in the rain on the off chance that some idiot will try to swim. All that’s needed is a sign saying, “Danger: Rough seas. Risk of death. Don’t do it”. If anybody is brainless enough to go swimming and ends up dead, then we have an example of Darwinism at its finest. Lifeguards during the tourist season? Okay. But let us resist the incursion of a nanny state – people in Thailand know how to wipe their own bottoms. Nigel Pike … [Read more...] about Posting a lifeguard for idiots not worth it

When the budget airline Wow Air abruptly ceased operations earlier this year, thousands of travelers were left stranded and scrambling, on both sides of the Atlantic, to make alternate travel plans. The news, after months of speculation that the Icelandic airline was struggling financially, came at a period that has already been particularly difficult for low-cost carriers.
