Travel Tabloids – Weekly Roundup
Travel Tabloids is a collection of the craziest travel related stories from around the web for the previous week or so. Instead of gumming up your feed reporting on these as they happen we will post them all together, once per week.
I think people find these stories fun and/or interesting and hopefully it helps give you a little distraction in the middle of your work week. If you find any crazy or funny articles that you think should make it into Travel Tabloids email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This woman was stalked by a creepy guy at a Marriott hotel but the hotel staff did next to nothing. The man was placing notes under her door. It also took the Marriott Twitter team around 10 hours to respond even though multiple people were tagging them. Not a good look for Marriott or the local police for that matter. I am glad she made it out safely.
Lie detector tests at airport security? Yep, it’s coming – USA Today
This sounded like adding more time to the process when I originally saw it. But the way they explain it I think it could make it more seamless. It takes the human element out of the equation. The only issue is the IT must be good; if it is poorly done then it could be a hot mess.
That does it for this week’s edition of Travel Tabloids. I hope you got a few chuckles and interesting reads out of the collection. Hopefully it made the middle of the work week go a little bit faster. Let me know if you find anything interesting via email (email@example.com) or in the comments section. Also let me know which story you found most interesting this week.
