Don’t make the mistake of thinking that this is a project for the far future or even the near future. We hope to succeed not just in our lifetimes but soon. What better gift can you give one who is constantly on the road than this gift of being able to keep in touch with home. Or, once they arrive in another country will allow them to set up meetings, call up their contacts, make necessary reservations, check their emails or browse for much needed info. Nothing can indeed compare to this gift especially if they don’t have one yet. Chances are they already have one but this is not a problem. Upgrade what they have.
Different interests. Not everyone is interested in the same thing, and it’s not always fun having to go along with a group when you’re not interested in what they’re doing. Your friends want to hit the beach but you’d rather check out a museum? You want to go on a bus tour but your friends would rather take a walking tour? Little things like that might not seem like a big deal, but if you constantly have to compromise to keep the group happy, your fun vacation can turn frustrating very quickly.
Chatbots are getting increasingly sophisticated and capable of mimicking human conversation behaviors, but what should these bots aim to do and how can brands deploy a chatbot successfully?

Something else I learned was the weight maximum of a dog. Some hotels only allow animals up to a certain weight. That’s good if you have a small dog. I found that we had to walk our chihuahuas among larger breeds. If you don’t know, chihuahuas have attitudes that they can take on any dog, especially the big ones.
One tip for the frequent traveler: Bring one of those garbage bags (industrial use) in your carry on. You can use this to wrap your luggage not only when they burst open but also when you travel to rural areas and your bags will be placed at the back of the vans. Then, they are protected from rain and dust. We do this all the time and often our drivers ask for it as they, too, want their luggage protected.
If you’re heading to London, it’s definitely worth checking out Air BnB I had a little look around, and you can rent some fabulous properties for well under €100 a night. I spotted a studio apartment in Camden for €83, an East London apartment (with terrace!) for €85, or a South London studio for just €59. There’s also this frickin’ amazing apartment I’ve been gazing at for years – the Clock Tower Guest Suite in the St Pancras building. You’re IN the clock tower. In it! It’s working out at €181 per night at the moment.
