There is a secret known by all experienced air travelers. What do you do if you arrive for your flight late? There are many reasons why this might happen. There might be an extra-long line at the check-in counter or at airport security. Perhaps there was a traffic jam or you could not find a place to park. In any event, you get to the gate too late. What do you do next? Of course you ask the airline to put you on another flight. But, the secret is that the airline will reschedule you to the next flight FREE – of extra charge, even if your ticket rules requires a fee for change! The reason for your being late does not matter. Western airlines (American and European) are fighting to get customers and will do anything to keep customers happy. The airlines have found that it is more profitable to put you on the next available flight and send you to your destination at no additional cost than to lose you to the competition!

Rio Carnival is a wild 4 day celebration, 40 days before Easter. It officially starts on Saturday and finishes on Fat Tuesday with the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday after which one is supposed to abstain from all bodily pleasures.

It usually happens in February, the hottest month in the Southern Hemisphere, when the Rio summer is at its peak.

These tree fences are intended to be 18 to 20 inches high, unlike tree guards which can be 5 feet tall.

Pack Snacks “Snacks are crucial for my toddler on flights and car trips. Bananas, apple slices, Goldfish crackers … you name it, I’ve got it. Bananas are great for the little ones because you can mash them up easily if they aren’t eating food in solid pieces yet. And while you’re at it, don’t forget multiple bibs!”- Sarah S. Slip-On Diapers “Right now I’m loving the pull-up diapers for babies. Not the kind that are meant as training pants for toddlers, but the ones that come in smaller sizes for wiggly babies. I’ve found that many planes don’t have changing tables in their bathrooms, so it’s a lot easier to slide on t
