When it comes to extra-long layover ideas at Detroit-Metropolitan Airport, we would suggest such cultural activities as visiting the Yankee Aviation Museum, taking in the Detroit Institute of Art, or heading downtown for a Lafayette's coney dog. There is, however, one less than savory option that never fails to give us a little laugh on the drive into DTW from the highway: The Landing Strip Lounge.
There is some historical value to what has deemed itself "top flight topless entertainment"; The Landing Strip occupies a 1902 building near the airport and has what is arguably the best phone number in the area: 1-800-2-RUNWAY. There's even a complimentary shuttle from the terminals.
Should you plan a layover in Detroit just for the "experience?" Although it looks like the stereotypical neon-lit club straight out of a movie, the place has been raided.
Stay classy, Detroit.

It's the end of an era, folks. Irish ultra-low-cost airline Ryanair has declared an end to their popular flight attendant bikini calendars, and none will be produced for 2015.
To be frank, they weren't that well produced anyway; the themes were thin and reminiscent of the opening scenes of a porn movie, and heavy makeup didn't help the image. Nonetheless, the calendars did sell both online and onboard Ryanair flights (for 10 Euros each), even seeing some of the proceeds over to charity since the first printing in 2008.
Ryanair flight attendants will be keeping their clothes on this year (and for the foreseeable future) since the schlocky calendar doesn't fit with Ryanair's fresh and friendly approach, an approach which has already shown to be successful; The Telegraph UK reports that Ryanair has recently seen a 5% jump in bookings.

Contrary to popular belief, it turns out not everyone is a fan of Games of Thrones.
The show is busy filming its upcoming season in Croatia, where they hit a bit of a snag last week after a church in Dubrovnik, Croatia banned star Lena Headey from filming a nude scene on the city’s streets.
Though many countries simply tolerate it via unwritten rules and an open mind, Munich has officially legalized public nudity by creating six designated "nudist zones" throughout the city. The zones are mostly centered around or near the Isar River, including two in Englischer Park.
Public nudity has been somewhat of a debate in Munich since statewide laws concerning nude sunbathing expired last fall, but showing skin is nothing new for the Germans. Despite all the hype and attention this news has brought, this writer can testify that nudity was more than tolerated last summer in Munich. On a visit in July, after having a drink at the world's largest beer garden, I took a walk through Englischer Park and saw many people bearing skin. It was absolutely common behavior and nothing that anyone seemed to think twice about. As noted, this was before the laws controlling nude sunbathing expired.

Do yourself a favor this Valentine's Day and skip the expensive dinner, skip the diamond engagement ring. Instead, put airline tickets in the hands of your love, and give the gift of an experience. All this week, we'll be sharing a few of our own recommendations for some of the most romantic travel ideas in this world.
Idea #1: A night or two in a private pool villa, for skinny-dipping.
Now, skinny-dipping here and there doesn't make you a nudist, but it does impart some spontaneous edge and prove you're more than a little comfortable in your own skin. Sleep naked, and wake up before coffee by walking straight from bed into the deep end.
Unlike an overwater bungalow, the confines of a private pool ensure there'll be no sharks or jellyfish lurking below. Here's our three favorite hotels with villas whose pools are ultra-private:
According to the American Association of Nude Recreation (which apparently exists), many of the mental cues that tie us to our everyday cares slip away as the clothes come off.
And get this: Clothing-optional tourism is a $440-million-per-year industry, according to AANR, including everything from cruises, organized tours, and more than 250 resorts and clubs nationwide. Not surprising, there are twice as many male nudists as females, typically 35 years or older with a college education and a higher-than-average household income.

Is that a wrench in your pocket or are you just happy to see this airplane?
That's a question for the 12 men chosen to star in the newest naughty calendar from Thai budget airline Nok Air.
Just as they recently partnered up with Playboy Thailand for a 2014 calendar of ladies, so too has the low-cost carrier done a deal with gay lifestyle magazine Attitude to produce a 2014 calendar of hot men.

Taking a soak in a hot tub after a day on the slopes is a classic apres-ski activity, and while the modern whirlpool at the hotel will do the trick, many Colorado towns offer the option of going all natural in a mountain hot spring.
Now, to be fair, this is a double-edged sword. The hot springs are "natural," meaning that the heated water is coming from the ground, but the infrastructure is man-made, added to make it more accessible, such as handrails, stairs, concrete walkways, etc. This creates a fusion that lands somewhere between mountain and modern, and sometimes it works out better than others in terms of the atmosphere it creates. Some seem really phony (cough, Glenwood Hot Springs, cough), and others, like Strawberry Park Hot Springs in Steamboat, are really well done.
Though it's been a brutal winter so far, 'tis still the season for wacky urban stunts, from Santacon to Polar Bear Plunges, and one of the world's most rapidly spreading annual "flashmob"-type events is coming up this weekend.
We're talking about the No Pants Subway Ride, which Improv Everywhere began over a decade ago in New York, and which now has spread to include a whopping 59 cities, from Paris and Philadelphia to Beijing and Brisbane.

So much for naked farmers, it's that time of the year when flight attendants strip off their suit jackets and snap photos for annual calendars.
Today, Ryanair announced the availability of their crew calendar for 2014, all proceeds from which go to charity. For 2014, that charity is the Teenage Cancer Trust. The Ryanair calendar tradition goes back to 2008, and thus far the airline has managed to raise over 700,000 Euros in the six years.
The filming of the "making of" video and on-location shots took place in Ryanair's 55th base: Chania, Crete. Check it out:

Welcome to "What Everyone's Buying," a new series on souvenirs, wherein we investigate what tourist trinkets are the hottest selling in hotspots around the world.
We've already told you about the popularity of the priest pin-up calendars in Rome, and those of gondoliers in Venice, but it turns out that the UK is keen to get in on the action with their own mildly scandalous calendar.

While Americans debates whether their tax dollars should go to publically fund universal healthcare, the Swiss voted to saddle up and spend $2.6 million on a drive-in prostitution facility.
Legal in the country since 1942, the so-called “sex boxes” are the response to an on-going problem with the sex industry in certain neighborhoods throughout the city of Zurich. The facility is located away from the city center and serves as a bit of a safe haven for prostitutes and their clients.
The details are pretty incredible. The sex boxes, open “daily” from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., are adjoined to a facility that is staffed by city social workers to look after the women. According to the AP, the sex workers must register with the city and “obtain a special permit, at a cost of 40 Swiss francs ($43) a year, and pay 5 francs ($5.40) a night in taxes, which helps the city offset maintenance costs.”
