Upvote/Downvote: Shaq, Delta And Much More Travel News

Ice cream attacks, Shaq rides and one startling bombshell greet us in the news of the week.

If we learned anything this week, it would be to never drop your ice cream cone in Devon, England.

Ah, but there are far more lessons to glean over the course of the past few days. Here are some you might enjoy.

Oh Boy: unveiled a captivating study. The most interesting aspect illustrated that people would rather travel with a smartphone rather than a loved one.

Downvote: Get up. Walk to a mirror and look at yourself. You already knew this news to be true. Now live in your shame.

Shaq Gives A Lyft

Shaquille O’Neal suited up in various ridiculous outfits and squired a bunch of Atlanta locals around town in a Lyft.

Upvote: The last Lyft we were in featured a five-minute conversation centered on the weather, so we could use something interesting like Shaq as our driver.

Ice Cream Attack

One tourist had an unfortunate encounter with a flock of seagulls. Rather than offer a nice hit from the 80s, this flock attacked the tourist, which led to said tourist dropping his ice cream cone and garnering a littering fine.

Downvote: Devon officials are stricter than the principal from “Back to the Future.” Surely, you could bend the rules for a poor tourist who just wanted to enjoy a cone on a fine English day.

Delta Dandy

Delta announced that its in-flight entertainment would be absolutely free to all passengers starting July 1.

Upvote: If the aisles in its airplanes were big enough we would be dancing up and down them thanks to this news.
