Thanks to Jetpacks and Japanese Drinking, This Week was Bananas

Selfie drones, jetpacks and binge drinking: Oh my.

This week offered some seriously amazing discoveries. We saw a couple of guys fly through Dubai airspace on jetpacks and a couple of blokes drinks as much as their heart desired for less than ten bucks.

Through it all we saw some seriously beautiful destinations, which has us craving the moment we take off on our respective summer vacations.

Now if only we had a drone that could come along and archive all the amazing memories. Oh, but we have a solution for that as well.

Go ahead and read along to discover that gem.

Japan Solved Inexpensive Drinking:

This week we were introduced to Nomihoudai, which is an all-you-can-drink option at some establishments in Japan.

In the above video, we see the effects of two hours of inexpensive drinking, and we desperately want in.

Dubai via Jetpack:

Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet gave us all something pretty magical this week in the form of a breathtaking jaunt around Dubai and its surrounding desert.

Instead of traveling by normal means, they decided jetpacks would offer a more scenic journey. We tend to agree.

The Open Letter We Always Wanted:

TravelPulse’s Donald Wood spotted what has to be the greatest open letter to an anonymous and completely clueless airline passenger.

Here is a taste of Mun Yee’s prose from “Despite my common economy seat, you offered me a full back massage by repeatedly kicking the back of chair. To date, I have yet to regain full mobility of the lower half of my body. But since I am single, I suppose I don’t have much use for it anyway.”

The comedy continues in a lengthy letter, which is pretty much directed at all the annoying passengers we have come across in our travels.

Safety Surfing Safari:

Air New Zealand did it again; creating a safety video that actually demands our undivided attention.

To tout safety protocols, the airline managed to also craft a beautiful tourism video with some of the best surfers in the world.

Take our Money:

Lily may just be the future of travel photography, especially when you consider the popularity of the selfie stick.

Sure, it’s more expensive that that silly stick, but it flies around and records your every movement asking that you merely wear a tracking device. The future is here and its really rather accommodating.
