Start Vacations on Thursday
Chris is flying in today, it is Saturday, this is causing a lot of headache, he is arriving at the perfect time 5:30 in morning.

However, the day of week is horrible; every dingaling on the planet enters the tourist cities on Friday and Saturday.

Like taking off at rush hour for joy ride, and I hope vacations are a joy ride, but most people seem to work when on Vacation.

Room are full, owners of hotels are greedy, service is at the end of week low as everyone takes the week end off and stops working.

Europe is always funny, they take August off, their busy time of year.

Entering a tourist city on Friday, Saturday is a pain, we have to pay more for rooms because the hotel owners go into extortion greed mode, as they are full, and the whole experience is less.

I think people want the weekend time, but with a little thought, I think the many people could avoid the waiting for the weekend idea.

I have been laughing to myself, not normal for me to have to deal with mainstream tourist, but to return to Antigua on Friday, stay Saturday and leave on Sunday make me understand why I do not like tourism.

I keep dwelling on the idea of having a Hotel or Hostel, I am thinking of having a reservation system that requires the clients to live in the hotel for one week or pay for one week. I think that would slow down the people enough to make them know they are on vacations to relax and enjoy the day. I really do not want to live with stresse out people on vacation.

The staff of my hotel took the weekend off, they do not care about clients, they know the money is guaranteed, we are in a tourist trap... hehehe The new workers are managing the crowds, he least amount of experience when needed the most.

Tourist Economics is exactly opposite of normal.

Thanks Andy for launching http://www.hobohideout.com/ and informing us to add links. I found your new website is more SEO friendly, since the web links are direct.

Another great thing in your blog is you are explaining how to make a clickable link and helping people to post their links. Thanks for that too. Here I want to post my clickable link. Hope you will approve my comment (since comment moderation is enabled).
Medical Tourism Health Risks My views on medical tourism are rather mixed. I had one friend who received heart surgery in India with no complaints. Another friend had plastic surgery in Thailand and didn't enjoy it.
