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.”

In terms of joining the Mile High Club, some might say that hiding is half the fun. But for those of you who can’t perform under the pressure of looming prosecution, the airline industry has options for you in what amounts to a hilarious display of supply and demand. Yes, that’s rightseveral "airlines" have emerged across the globe to help passengers cross an in-air romp off their bucket lists.
We told you about Exotic Airlines out of Australia a few years ago, however it seems the company has since dropped out of the game as its website is no longer operational. So what are the options today?
Believe it or not, an answer comes from the Midwest. Cincinnati’s Flamingo Air was “conceived” in the early nineties, and has been offering “romantic airplane rides” ever since. For $425, you and your partner can get an hour-long ride in a small, “curtained” aircraft with champagne and chocolates. Apparently the concept has gone over rather well, as the company said they sometimes do up to eight flights a day.

Once again Hugh Jackman is proving celebs really are just like us, especially when it comes to navigating Japanese culture.
While on a break from filming The Wolverine in Japan last year, Jackman managed to embarrass himself and upset the locals at an onsen, or natural hot spring spa. It took him nearly an hour to figure out the small towel they handed him at the hot spring was meant to cover his private parts, not his forehead.

This is without a doubt the least sexy naked travel post that we've ever blogged. John Brennan is a Portlander with what appears to be a libertarian streak. Last April he was going through a TSA checkpoint when officers detected nitrates on his clothing. In order to demonstrate that he was not in fact carrying explosives, Brennan got totally naked. Problem? Solution.
He was of course immediately charged with violating local indecency laws, because seriously, he got really naked (NSFW, obviously). Those charges were promptly slapped down by a judge. We have a Constitution in this country, and that Constitution entitles you to protest against the government in all kinds of interesting ways, and those ways apparently include being naked.

Wondering when is the right time to jet down for a long weekend on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten? Right now, that's when. We did it and you can too, easily. All this week we'll be sharing the details on making the dream of sunning, sipping cocktails and spotting St. Maarten's notoriously low-flying planes a reality.
Everyone knows Maho Beach, where the airplanes land within a few hundred feet of the SPF-slathered bodies of gawking tourists, but there's more to St. Maarten than that. Rest assured that we'll bring you an entire guide to making the most of Maho tomorrow, but we can't forget the food and frolicking of other nooks of the island.
Here's four long weekend activities on St. Maarten (aside from plane spotting):
Clothing optional sunbathing
Look, St. Maarten is a tropical island split into French and Dutch sides, so prude land this is not. The most famous of the "clothing optional" beaches is Orient Bay, though it's quite a long drive which can be a challenge if you're only planning to spend a long weekend on St. Maarten. Still, the is very welcoming for ladies who prefer to tan au naturale, and Maho Beach's Sunset Bar & Grill famously lets topless ladies drink for free.

Sensing a trend?
These have all been recent locations to score the cover shot of the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Now brace yourself, because 2013's destination star definitely doesn't belong in the bunch other than the fact that it too is an islanda very large island. Antarctica.

What is the turn of a new year without a flight attendant calendar controversy? This year, the award for naughty airline calendar goes to Thai budget airline Nok Air, whose slogan is "We Fly Smiles."
They also apparently fly scantily clad, as Nok's Facebook previewed three photos from the calendar as part of a contest to win a free copy. Each of the teaser photos (shown here) are now angering the Thailand Ministry of Culture, on the grounds that the image doesn't promote the country in a proper, positive light. That doesn't mean the Ministry of Culture can stop Nok from printing their calendars, though, so the contest to give away 300 of them continues.
If you're super-short on time in buzzing Istanbul (which is something that frequently happens with long layovers), we've "been there done that" so here are the things that’ll let you experience the modern side of Istanbul in a rush.
So, you’re in Istanbul and you think to yourself that you should really suck it up (and in) and go to an authentic Turkish hamam, because when in Rome…
We understand you may be feeling a bit unsure about hamam etiquette, not to mention a bit squeamish about disrobing in the wrong hamam. We’re here for you. If you want an authentic hamam experience, but appreciate five-star treatment, go to the Ayasofya Hamam (also known by the rather cumbersome name Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamami).

The L3 body scanners you will see in airports from now on
News broke on Friday that TSA is removing Rapiscan full-body scanners, made by OSI Systems Inc., from airports. We wrote it up with a somewhat immodest reminder that we had put the move on your radar last October and called your attention to two salient details in the story.
One, that this is a software issue and not anything having to do with hardware or with full-body scanning or anything fundamental like that. Two, that TSA would be subbing in L3's millimeter-wave machines for the Rapiscan machines, essentially replacing one full-body scanner with another.
What happened is Congress told TSA to use scanners that produce feature-less outlines. So TSA told companies to make scanners that feature-less outlines. L3 developed what they call "Automatic Target Recognition," which makes machines display gingerbread man outlines, but OSI didn't develop anything similar. Ergo, TSA replaced OSI's machines with L3's machines.
Cue mass confusion on the Internet. Half the stories we saw incorrectly implied that TSA had abolished full-body scanners. The other half (the more entertaining half) explained that the misreporting was part of a conspiracy to lull America's sheeple into giving up their rights. God love you all, but wrong and wrong.
Though we've enjoyed an unseasonably warm 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 most major world cities with subway transportation.
The 2013 ride, the 12th annual, will go down on Sunday, January 13. As veterans of the NYC No Pants ride, we can vouch for it and say that it's all in good fun, though it's getting a little big (literally) for its britches; so many people now do the Ride that you could be sharing a subway car with no one else but no-pantsers. Sure, it's awkward at firstyou remove your pants on the subway, silently, mid-ridebut that's part of the deal.
