Travellers without travel insurance are personally liable for covering any medical and associated costs they incur. The Australian Government won’t pay for your medical treatment overseas or medical evacuation to Australia or a third country. These can go in their purses so when they are out and want to remember details of the places they visit, they can easily write those down. This is especially true when they travel for business. When they go to meetings, these can fit in their purses. And you know what, they don’t have to plug them in.
Book domestic travel tickets (this applied to some international travel as well) as early as you can. Most domestic airlines have best fares with 21, 14, and 7 day advance purchase. This means that you may find lower fares when booking (= purchasing) a flight this many days before the flight.
What: intergalactic travel at hyperluminal speeds (meaning faster than the range termed superluminal or FTL). In practical terms, this means faster than one billion celeritas (that’s the C in E=mc squared). If you cannot travel from the Milky Way to another galaxy in under ten years (even in suspended animation or cryo-hibernation) then why bother? Ten years is a lot of time to be out of it. Voyages that took months were barely tolerable back in the last Age of Exploration therefore years are intolerable to people like us used to things happening fast. Even intergalactic distances should not take centuries. One decade okay maybe but not longer than that.
If you are not in a hurry and want to try to reduce the cost of flying, this might seem attractive and you can volunteer to be bumped. Usually airlines are more willing to compensate you (cash, vouchers, tickets, etc.) if you volunteer to give up your seat. But remember that not every agent or airline will give you a voucher, extra frequent flyer miles, or a free ticket if you don’t ask for it. So go for it, it does not hurt to ask.
The discoverer of this galaxy has an interesting story. John Herschel was the son of William Herschel. His father William was born Friedrich Wilhelm Herschel in Germany before moving to England, discovering that Uranus was a planet, and composing 24 symphonies. The uncles of John were musicians in the town of Bath. His aunt was Caroline Herschel who discovered 8 comets and 11 nebulae, published the British Catalogue of Stars, was honored by the Royal Astronomical Society of the UK, and was a soprano soloist. With that kind of family achievement in the previous generation, John might be forgiven if his generation sunk back into obscurity unable to equal his parents’ accomplishments.
Hello! I am planning to bring my shihtzu from the Phils to the US and it is a long 13 hours flight and he will be checked in cargo. I want to ask how about the food and the water for the dog? Should I leave a plate for the dog’s food inside the kennel and drinking water? Thanks!
