Airport All Nighters

Sexy stress busters

Happy FlyingHappy FlyingDelays are inevitable, but stress is avoidable. Begin your journey in the lap of luxury with a manicure, massage and martini. Think we're kidding?

Airport spas are de rigueur these days. Ten minutes is all you need for quickie manicure and massages, and some can do a head to toe package in 30 - worth budgeting time for.

If lineups at the spa stress you more than the delay, activate your inner goddess and belly up to the bar for some good old fashioned liquid relief.

When you tire of the pampering, scope out local bands, movie theatres and even designated napping areas - all behind security.

Putting on the Ritz        

If you hit a big delay (we're thinking ice storm), call a friend who racks up the air miles and can get you into a business class lounge.

Friends only fly steerage like you?

A winning smile or $25 can get you into the lounge of wonders: snacks and drinks (sometimes alcoholic), free Wi-Fi, magazines and TVs. Definitely look forward to better chairs and fewer fussy kids. There might even be a nursery if you're traveling with your own brood of cranky travelers.

Expecting Trouble? Check out these sites to help you navigate a path to inner peace while flying:

The budget traveler's guide to Sleeping in Airports has reviews and comments posted for airports worldwide. They'll let you know the pros and cons, from swimming pools to friendly (or scary) security guards.

Airport Spas and Xpress Spas are two of the biggest airport spa providers. Find out what's offered where you're flying and if you're in the habit of hanging out at airports, check out Lounge Pass or Priority Pass to get you into top lounges without a fuss.

This CNN article will fill you in on movies, bands, and more at an airport near you - happy travelling!

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
