It's bad enough those good-looking types already get the free upgrades to business class. Now comes a site that holds out the promise of free travel to hot women.
The site, called misstravel.com, looks pretty much like a dating service matching women with very large breasts (judging by the photos, and, hey, it' s part of my job) and skimpy clothing choices with rich men. One of the young women listed on the site says she's a "naughty babe looking for a sugar daddie," so at least she's honest.
The headline on the site says "Who Needs Money? Beautiful People Travel for Free," and proceeds to explain how folks can sign up as "Attractive Traveler" who don't have cash but want to find a rich buddy, or as a "Generous Traveler" looking for hot folks they can travel with or, get this, donate their air miles to.
"If you are a beautiful person who wants to travel for free, just signup as an 'Attractive Traveler,'" the site says. "Attractive Travelers are adventurous and open minded people who love to travel, but lacks the budget to do so. As such, you are looking to meet Generous members who are willing to pay for you to travel, or gift you frequent flyer miles which may be redeemed for free flights on all major airlines."
Gift frequent flyer miles? You think some rich guy is just gonna give a cute girl his hard-earned miles?
Apparently the site insists it's not an escort service. I don't know. If it walks like a duck....
CRUISE LINE GOES WATER CRAZY
Pretty cool item in USA Today about how Norwegian Cruise LInes is coming out with a ship that'll have not just one or two but FIVE waterslides.
Gene Sloan writes that the NCL ship Breakaway will have a "deck-top Aqua Park" with two pools, four hot tubs and an eatery called the Breezeway Bar & Grill.
"Two of the water slides at the Aqua Park will be side by side and feature a starting area where passengers stand above a trap door that opens from underneath them, propelling them into a steep drop and loop -- a first for a cruise ship. Two more side-by-side slides plunge passengers down a multi-story spiral," he said.
"Norwegian today also will announce that the Norwegian Breakaway's top deck will feature a sprawling, three-story sports complex with the largest ropes course at sea, a nine-hole miniature golf course, basketball court and rock climbing wall. Among the elements of the multi-level ropes course: The Plank, a platform that extends eight feet over the side of the ship, challenging (harness wearing) passengers to 'walk the plank' before completing the experience."
Geez, whatever happened to daily walks along the promenade and a game of shuffleboard?
FOUR SEASONS TORONTO OPENING FOR BUSINESS
The Four Seasons has announced its taking reservations for the new Toronto/Yorkville hotel, with stays beginning Oct. 1 of this year.
They're suggesting the new Cafe Boulud and d bar by international chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud will be trendy (probably a good guess) and our "new favourite place to mix and mingle," which remains to be seen.
They also say they'll have Toronto's largest luxury hotel spa....
