Whenever I go on vacations I like to take flights that leave in the evening so I can enjoy every final minute where I am. That’s great, except most hotels require you to check out by 11 (or 1pm if you’re lucky), and then you have to stow your bags and hit the town without a home base. Sometimes that’s not a big deal, other times you want to go snorkeling on that last day or go on a hike where you’re really going to need a shower before you hop on that plane next to some strangers. Then, you either need new plans, or a spot to crash for a few hours.
Just like it sounds, Dayuse is a site that allows you to book a hotel room to use for the day.
The site (and app) works with 4,000 different hotels across 20 different countries. With it, you can book a hotel stay for the day rather than evening, and take advantage of all the hotel’s amenities when you do.
For instance, you could book a day at a 5-star hotel and enjoy the spa and pool all day, or book a suite to handle a few business meetings while you travel without inviting potential clients over to the hotel room you’re actually staying in (or your home, if you work from there). Or yes, because someone is going to go there, you could use this to book a last-minute stay for your torrid affair.
Days rooms are often 75% cheaper than what the cost of the same room is in the evening - and you can check in during the morning hours, while most hotels don’t allow overnight guests to check in before the afternoon. It’s like HotelTonight, in that you’re taking advantage of unused hotel rooms, but for the daytime.
Availability varies from hotel to hotel. In some cases you can get a room from 9am-6pm, others you’ll have to be out by earlier in the afternoon (when all those overnight guests are likely to check in).
However, if you need a temporary home base, or a spot to just grab a quick nap or a shower before your flight, it can be a lifesaver.
"Browsing all nsfw subreddits I'm astonished, that the bush seems to be having a revival. Is it just a snapshot/zeitgeist or is the bush really back for (good/bad)?
Looking for replies from both guys (that love to go down south) and girls."
"I hope it is coming back! I hated the bush-shaming of the past couple decades. We should embrace diverse styles. I myself love to change it up - sometimes totally shaved, sometimes a triangle and sometimes more natural. Yet I always feel less sexy when I'm more natural, and I don't think I should feel that way.
Hopefully, if it becomes popular, then we can feel sexy with whichever style!"
VIETNAM -- A Vietnamese budget airline has apologized for an "improvised performance" by bikini-clad flight attendants who were unleashed on a flight to welcome home a national soccer team that didn't even win their match.
The boss of Vietjet, which has a history of using flight attendants in bikinis to attract customers -- and headlines -- apologized for causing offense but said the football team's treatment was not a company publicity stunt, but rather "an improvised performance by the logistics team that was not part of the company's program."
Chief executive Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, who was Vietnam's first female billionaire, issued the apology on her Facebook page, according to the Reuters news agency.
Vietnam's Under-23 men's soccer team were the recipients of the risqué in-flight entertainment as they returned from an Asian tournament in China, at which they lost badly to the team from Uzbekistan.
The team was nonetheless welcomed home as heroes, and it appeared to be the fact that the airline had involved the young players in the "performance" -- more than the performance itself -- that irked many Vietnamese.
As photos of the players looking awkward as flight staff bedecked in frilly underpants, feathers and sequins interacted with them emerged on social media, Vietnamese reacted angrily.
"Do you want to rename Vietjet 'Vietjerk', or 'Vietsex'?" Facebook user Ngoc Nhung sarcastically asked the airline's CEO in one scathing post.
"Vietjet's move was so rude, cheap, and offensive to the team, the fans and even its passengers," another Facebook user, Nguyen My Linh, wrote according to The Daily Mail of Britain.
Others vowed to boycott Vietjet over the stunt.
In spite of the apology, Vietjet was hit with a small fine and a slap on the wrist from Vietnam's civil aviation agency.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) levied a fine of 40 million dong ($1,761), and fined the plane's chief flight attendant 4 million dong, according to Reuters.
"Despite the fact the Vietjet event didn't jeopardise the safety of the flight, it could still have posed a safety risk," Reuters quoted CAAV as saying in a statement.
