Freight Forwarding tips: raise your sales (FOR REAL)

11 Things You Should Avoid Doing on the Plane

When you board an airplane, you expect a pleasant flight with as much comfort as you could get. But your comfort — and safety too, for that matter, — heavily depends on your friendly flight attendants.
Of course, they won’t say anything, but there are things they frown upon — and one that they just loathe. But I’m getting ahead of myself. So, if you really want a nice journey, you should keep in mind not to do those things that earn you the wrath of the flight attendants.

- When there’s a line of passengers waiting to use the bathroom while everyone else is looking for their seats, delays are guaranteed.
- So when you take too much carry-on with you, two unpleasant things happen at once: one, you make other people wait while you put all your stuff up there, and two, those people who’ve been waiting for you can’t put their own bags into the bins because you’ve hogged them.
- Even pleasant smells can get on your nerves when there’s just too much of them. That perfumed piece of handmade soap you carry on with you has a wonderful aroma, but only for the first few minutes.
- When a flight attendant approaches you to ask a question, it’s polite to take off your headphones and pay them your full attention.
- Flight attendants confess that one of the most frustrating things is when passengers start trying to persuade them to change their seat assignments. The thing is, they simply can’t do that.
- When taking off, taxiing, and landing, as well as during turbulence, you should stay seated and fasten your belt in case anything happens.
- If you insistently press the call button for no good reason, chances are you’ll be asked to stop doing that — or even ignored completely.
- When you ask a flight attendant what they have, you make other passengers wait longer and get edgy — consider this when you take your time ordering your food and drinks.
- One of the downsides of working as a flight attendant is that you only get paid for the hours of actual flight. All the work you do while on land is free.
- Safety presentations are really similar on most airlines, but it’s still worth it to refresh them in your memory before the flight.
- It’s absolutely not fine to poke or grab a flight attendant for any reason, just like any other person. Some attendants say, though, that there are people who find it okay to touch them by the knee or ankle when they pass by.

MUST DO IN ICELAND | Blue Lagoon & Snorkelling in Silfra

It's our first epic day here in Reykjavik, and we are just ticking off the bucket list items here in Iceland. First up we go and snorkel between two continents at Silfra which is quite possibly the coldest and clearest waters we have ever snorkelled in...

...and after a few hours on the phone to our travel insurance company we gave up on seeing what we can claim to go out and spend some time in the must do day trip - Blue Lagoon...which we can say lives up to the expectations.

Japan Travel Tips: 10 Things to Know Before You Go

10 things YOU need to know before you go to Japan. A comprehensive travel guide to bring you up to speed on Japanese Etiquette, Language, Food, Hotels, and more! After watching this video you'll be well prepared to tackle Japan, my favorite country to travel to! EXPAND DESCRIPTION FOR MORE.

1- Etiquette:
Japanese have a specific way to do everything -- as a foreigner you'll probably get a pass
Types of bowing
How to sit
How to hand things with 2 hands
Levels of politeness
Happy to help -- and sometimes they will really go out of their way to help you.

2- Language:
Japanese of course! Different Dialects throughout.
English in the big cities
Japanese may seem like they don't know English.. they are just Shy.
Tokyo,Osaka,Kyoto public transport signed in English
Not so much in the suburbs
Good to have your hotel and destinations written in Japanese
Don't know Japanese? Just try the English variant
Coffee - Cohhe
Good to learn some basic Japanese
Biru Kudasai

3- Timeliness:
Being on time is very important
Stores close and open promptly
Bullet trains have to run within 15 seconds of their posted schedule
Dinner Reservations be on time.
5 mins before and they may not seat you.
Distance often measured in walking time
Japan is just one time zone
Calendar is different

4- Public Transportation:
It's amazing
Be aware of rush hour and the last train time
Little luggage storage -- Luggage shipping services
Train stations are amazing too.
But confusing.
Remain calm. Take the next train
Coin Lockers!
But watch my video
JR Pass
Driving -- I've got a video on that too
But don't drive in the big cities
The Limousine Bus is just a bus.
No Uber.. taxis though! Let the taxi driver open the door.
Bicycling - Can be fun.. park in a legal spot. Ride on sidewalks.

5- Food:
Noodles, Sushi and Yakitori
Slurp your noodles
Katsu Don
Ten Don
Pepper Lunch
Matcha Everything
Fruit ( Strawberry, Cantaloupe)
Give it a try!
It doesn't all have to be expensive.
Watch my cheap eats video
English menu
Point at the food in the window (or take a picture of it)
Vending Machines to order
Izakaya -- Japanese Pub -- Time limit
Tatami Restaurants -- sit on the floor, take off your shoes
Standing restaurants (Sushi, Steak)
Convience Stores
Department Stores
Pancakes for dinner
Maid Cafes
Robot Restaurant

6- Money:
Cash is King! Credit not accepted much.
Bills / Coins
Always put your money in the Tray
Change comes back in a Tray
With 2 hands

Japan is probably the cheapest country in the developed world. The only comparable countries are Portugal and Taiwan.
Stay at Toyoko Inn and eat at 7-11 and Yoshinoya

7- Tipping:
They don't do it
It's actually considered rude

8- Trash:
There are very few public trash cans
Watch my video for more details

9- Toilets:
Some squat toilets
Toto toilets are Amazing!
Sometimes called Washlet or Ostomat
If water runs when you sit on it you didn't break it
Great way to clean yourself, dryer, music,heat
Usually no paper towels, carry a handtowel
Toilet slippers - just for the toilet
If it is a squat toilets:
Face the right way, usually in the direction of the porcelain hood. Note point “A” in the diagram. Avoid this common mistake: Don’t go over the hole – by going over the opposite end (the end without the hole), you avoid any sort of splashing or the like.

10 - Hotels:
Small. Functional. Clean. Tired.

Ep. 15 - BOAT REPAIRS in Exotic Places - How Not To Sail A Boat

The budget and the repairs are getting us a bit down as we continue beating East into the trade winds and it takes a toll on our old sailboat. We arrive to the Dominican Republic in Luperon wanting to explore but the list of things that has gone wrong on the three day sail from the Bahamas is extensive (and defeating) so instead we get to work.

We do get to see a little bit of the countryside when we rent a car and are surprised to have arrived just in time for a Caribbean Carnival celebration.

We hope you enjoy it!

I Had a Change of Heart about the Philippines

I Had a change of heart about the Philippines
↠ SUBSCRIBE for solo travel advice around the world ↠

Facebook :

Do you ever go to a place that everyone else loves but you just don't connect with it in that way? I think they call it Paris syndrome.
I felt that way about the Philippines the first time I went in 2013. I just didn't love it, but I could never really articulate why.

I realized that if I couldn't come up with a good reason, it meant that perhaps it was ME who was the problem the first time around. I knew that I had to return to see if that was the case.

I'm so happy to say that this time around, I had a change of heart. The locals in the Philippines were so friendly, that even when things went wrong like they did in Siargao, it turned out to be a beautiful experience. I am thankful that I got to go back and have a change of heart, but it felt dishonest not to talk about the experience I went into this Philippines trip with, and I wanted to share the truth with you!

Now I know, this is a place I'll keep coming back to. A BIG THANK YOU to all of the amazing locals who turned my impressions around this time.
