How did this driver miss the parking barrier? This is the kind of thing you think could never happen. Luckily, it turned out OK. Fast forward to 1:31 to see the rescue.

I was looking around Amazon one day, when just for kicks I thought I’d check and see if there were any books on parking. After all, we are Park Ride Fly USA, so it would be interesting to know. Instead of the big, fat zero hits I expected on my search, there were dozens. Here are the ones that looked most interesting.
Amazon’s description: “A funny, fascinating voyage of discovery into the car parks of Great Britain. Sixty car parks in Britain have been inspected, as far north as John o’Groats to the Land’s End car park in Cornwall. Many varied car parks are included from the dark and dangerous to multi-storeys of breathtaking beauty and sophistication, the best view and the most friendly attendants. ”

Air travel is as popular as ever, but booking your flight is not the only thing you need to arrange when you travel. As more people travel and security increases, it gets harder and harder to find somewhere to park at the airport. Even when you do, it can be extremely costly and this is a time when people are looking to save money. One way to do that is with offsite airport parking.
1. Check The Location
A good place to start with off airport parking is on the web. Don’t just book the first offsite airport facility you find. Instead, look for maps and directions to make sure that the facility you choose really will be convenient. It’s not always about distance from the airport, though. Sometimes an off airport parking lot that’s further away can work if there’s a good free shuttle service thrown in.

This is the second and final part of my account of a recent trip to Cancun, Mexico.
The hotel also had a well equipped gym (priced at $11 per day, though according to the hotel’s own literature it was supposed to be free). I made it in there for a workout one day, opting to swim instead on the other days. Other facilities included a spa, a few shops and an excellent restaurant. Food was included in the conference package, so I was able to breakfast on smoked salmon, scrambled egg and mini croissants every morning, with a selection of delicacies for lunch and dinner.
The first night, before the conference started, we went to a place called La Destileria, where we sampled a range of Mexican dishes (the jalapenos are really hot) and drank some wine while listening to a mariachi band. Very touristy but still enjoyable. Then it was back to the hotel bar to sample tequila and sangrita – served in two shot glasses and drunk together – before heading to bed. Read more »
