In the long tradition of destination stories here at Jaunted, we've never abandoned covering the dramatic history of the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro, Maine. Opening nearly three years ago with $3 coffee and $2 donuts and free gazing at the waitress' gazongas. As expected, the joint was controversial from the start and even a mini-documentary went about profiling the place and its customers.
Then it burnt to the ground. Suspiciously. Well CBS News shares that the arsonist has finally been convicted, and he wasn't doing it for morality reasons at all; he was angry at his ex-girlfriend, an employee of the Grand View who had left him to shack up with the coffeeshop's owner. Raymond Bellavance Jr. is now headed to jail as the Grand View gets on with business.

It's that time of the year again, the time when the year just plain ends. Alas, we can't just let 2011 go that easily, especially since travelers spent it both up in the air and up in arms over a crazy range of topics, encompassing everything from nudie scans to tarmac delays. Needless to say, we're ready for 2012, but first we're taking a brief look back at the best of 2011 with the Jaunted Travel Awards,or as we fondly refer to themThe Jauntys.
Each and every year there are plenty of naughty flight attendants getting into trouble, and it usually involves wearing something a little bit different from the company-issued uniform, or not wearing something at all. This year, Canadian flight attendants stripped for their Turbulence Calendar of 2012—nice, eh—and of course getting frisky in the cockpit is sure to get you on Santa’s naughty list. However, when the final votes were tallied we just had to give out this year’s naughtiest flight attendants award to the high-flying ladies of Ryanair.
Yep, it's official. 'Tis the season for wacky urban stunts, from last weekend's Santacon to Polar Bear Plunges, and one of the world's most rapidly spreading annual "flashmob"-type event is coming up soon. We're talking about the No Pants Subway Ride which Improv Everywhere began 11+ years ago in New York, and which now has spread to include most major world cities with subway transportation.
The 2012 ride, the 11th annual, will go down on Sunday, January 8, a date ideal for those on holiday vacation to get back to the city in time to drop trou. As veterans of the NYC No Pants ride, we can vouch for it and say that it's all in good fun. Sure, it's awkward at firstyou remove your pants on the subway, silently, mid-ridebut that's part of the deal.

It's that time of the year! When pop-up mall kiosks are chock-full of shiny, shrink-wrapped new calendars for the the next year and Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair asks their flight attendants to strip to join the selection. Yes, the 2012 Girls of Ryanair charity calendar is now on sale.
This is the fourth year Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary has sold the calendar, which features 13 cabin crew (of nationalities Irish to Italian) wearing little more than skimpy bras and pantiesunderwear we highly doubt they regularly sport beneath their Ryanair uniforms. But that's not the point! The point is supposed to be that Ryanair employs hotties, and booking a Ryanair ticket comes with a chance to interact with these girls up close while en route to a long weekend on in Lanzarote.
This week, Jaunted correspondent Heidi Atwal takes us along to Paris, uncovering the hidden bits found in between sessions of copious macaron and butter consumption. And we do mean copious. Make sure to check in daily for dispatches from the City of Light.
Al Pacino. JFK. Elizabeth Taylor. Upon entering the dimly lit black and red environs of Paris' famed Crazy Horse club, guests are met by a list of celebrities who have descended the same stairs to watch what may be the world's most famous cabaret show. Since its founding in 1951, Crazy Horse has greeted over five million audience members, opened an outpost in Las Vegas, and invited famous guests such as Dita Von Teese to perform in its provocative stage show.

And just like that, fall has arrived. And just like that, it's about time to consider buying 2012 calendars. This year, may we suggest skipping the bookstores for something you definitely won't find there: The Turbulence Calendar of Canadian Flight Attendants.
You read rightthis calendar is only featuring ladies who end their sentences with "eh?" and like to start the day at Tim Horton's. The calendar shoot recently took place in a cheap motel, to give the ladies that layover-chic look, we guess. There's no preview shots aside from the awkward one above, and the saucy background photo of their website.
The calendar won't hit the e-shelves until November and there's a few promo events where you can meet the models (and get their signatures, of course). Now we only wonder what lucky airline will get to honor of being Miss July.

Cathay Pacific has long emphasized its reputation for comfort, style and especially customer service. Aside from constructing decadent space-age lounges and providing flyers with delicious cocktail after delicious cocktail, the airline has especially tried to highlight the pampering provided by its flight attendants.
Those branding efforts have been going on at least since 2009, when its corporate blog announced a campaign highlighting the bios of staff "who consistently go the extra mile to make sure our passengers enjoy an exceptional travel experience."
The Hong Kong airline intended to continue its "People and Service" campaign this year with a new slogan: "Meet the team who go the extra mile to make you feel special." The tagline was supposed to provide a theme for hundreds of pilot and flight attendant stories, all emphasizing the unique services provided by Cathay Pacific's employees. That service-oriented campaign is now on indefinite hiatus, however, after pictures surfacedand there's no way we're not going to make this joke, so prepare yourselvesafter pictures surfaced of a flight attendant orally servicing a pilot in a Cathay Pacific cockpit.
What do you collect when you travel? It's okay if you stop into a souvenir shop and drop a few dollars on a trinket to add to your collection; it's another notch on your worldwide bedpost, when another mini spoon gets added to the cabinet or another patch sewn onto a beaten backpack. Our thingif we must confessis sending postcards back to family, which they then collect for us. Regardless, we're fully aware that magnets may be the most popular souvenir tchotchkes, considering how cheap they are, how easy to buy and transport and the fact that they can actually serve a purpose.
Sometimes though, there's just a souvenir magnet so tacky it begs belief that it even made it up for sale. We found it on the Isle of Man this past weekend, in the capital city of Douglas.
It's our belief that the worst souvenirs are to be found for sale on islands, and there's a persistent fascination with naked butts on such trinkets (not to mention on postcards). This thingwith its uneven, half-assed quality (ha) is so bad that it's approaching the point where it reverts to being good again.
The American Association for Nude Recreation is at it again, talking up the concept of "nakationing" and putting images of leathery skinned, middle-aged bodies in birthday suits in our minds. This summer, the Nakation is apparently all about skinnydipping, which the AANR seeks to prove is not just an activity for horny teenagers playing Truth or Dare.
The AANR isn't too happy with the lack of nude beaches in the USA and they recently polled their members to discover where exactly everyone would like to dip their bits, if they could. Aside from the already approved nude sand stretches of Gunnison Beach, NJ, Haulover Beach, FL and Rooster Rock, OR, nudists oppose the use of bathing suits at these beaches and seashores:

It's an event that's as sacred to the city as the No Pants Subway Ride or PillowFight Daythis Saturday is the infamous event known as World Naked Bike Ride. As the name hints, this gathering of nudists, cyclists, and nudes on cycles does happen in other cities around the world, but as with all things, it's so much better when it happens in the Big Apple.
The official rules are thus: ride a bike and "wear what you wish." And yes, there will be girls as well as guys, enjoying the feel of a sun-heated bicycle seat on their bare bits. Join the group or gawk, starting at 3pm under the Williamsburg Bridge, at 99 South 6th Street, to do some creative body painting and then head out across the city. This is a peaceful ride, a kind of hunger strike-turned-clothing-strike to draw attention to pollution, the environment and cyclist rights.
Warning: Semi-NSFW content.
It was only a matter of time before traveler complaints over Full-body scanning got turned into a porn flick. This month sees the release to DVD of "TSA: Your Ass Is In Our Hands," a Hustler Video-produced sex romp that focuses on the TSA's touchy-feely security tactics.
The timing is purely coincidental with the newest TSA patdown controversy, where Miss USA speaks on camera about inappropriate touching during a recent pat-down at DFW Airport. As such, the porn film is about to make a whole lot of people very, very angry or very horny; it depends on your personal beliefs and interactions with security, really.

The new Congress is set to launch a series of hearings about the TSA, starting with allegations that the agency seems to lie a lotsomething that we've suggested once or twiceand extending into their gropey airport security procedures. Also on the agenda is whether it's a great idea to let TSA's sometimes douchey employees have functionally total authority over American citizens inside airports, a controversy heightened by the impending trial of a Seattle man who refused to show agents his ID.
So naturally the TSA is gearing up for the public relations and political storms by blogging snarky pushbacks against people who wear underwear that blurs one's naughty bits. In a post titled "A Friendly Suggestion on Products Designed to Conceal Sensitive Areas," TSA's Blogger Bob explained that if you wear the underwear version of those pasties we told you about last year, you can expect to get pulled aside for one of the agency's Happy Patdowns. "We're certainly not going to tell you what you should or shouldn’t buy or wear," goes the post, but we will tell you the odds of getting felt up based on your wardrobe.
