Flight Attendants' Top Travel Tips
washrooms, restaurants, skin care....


She trusts this Katmandu hotel...

airplaneI’d like to recommend the Hotel Tibet in Katmandu. I met a doctor who always stays there because their water is filtered. She eats all her meals there, too. So, I figure if it’s good enough for the doctor it’s good enough for me...

Juice is good for her skin...

airplaneI used to have major skin problems due to the dry air inflight (especially on the 747 aircraft). After some experimenting I found that drinking lots of fruit juice (and of course, water) really helps. While water is good for flushing the system, the juice seems to help retain the moisture. Though I don't need the extra calories of fruit juice, I try to drink at least one liter on a long flight. I also find that placing a wet terry-towel over my face when sleeping helps retain moisture on the skin.

Another moisturizing tip -- when I fly as a passenger, I carry a very small plastic sprayer (a hairspray sample bottle) filled with clean water and “spritz” my face and the air around me whenever possible.

She’s good to her feet in Chicago...

airplaneTreat yourself to a meticulous, well priced manicure and pedicure for just $28 at Anna Nails. Located just off Michigan Avenue in the heart of the shopping district at 716 N. Wabash, Chicago, IL 60611. (312) 280-8310

Christmas shopping in England...

airplaneHow’s this for an unusual international shopping tip? In time for the holiday season, Woolworths in Brighton Beach, England offers a great selection of well-priced gift boxes of chocolate. In fact, they stock a selection of Cadburys I never see in the States. If you’re as lucky as I was when you’re there, you’ll find that Woolworths offers free boxes of candy with certain in-store purchases. Yummy!

Two-way mirror or not...

airplaneJourney women might want to know how to determine if the mirror in your dressing room or hotel bathroom is two-way or not. This tip was passed on by a policewoman who travels all over the States and gives seminars for business women. I haven’t tested it and I’m not sure if it’s really true but thought it couldn't hurt to pass it on. Treat it accordingly.

When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure if the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror (i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them)? Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface of the mirror and if there is a gap between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a genuine mirror. However, if your fingernail directly touches the image of your nail on the mirror, then be aware for it is a two -way mirror.
