Beach etiquette: rules of behavior on vacation

There is office etiquette, rules of conduct at the table and even the rules of phone calls! Passion.ru introduces you to etiquette on the beach. Enjoy your health!
Late summer. Deckchair. Family beach expensive hotel and Spa. Dozing off under the giant brim of my hat while the kids have fun with the animators. And suddenly: “Pis-piss, come on, daughter, pee in the stones, no one is looking”… And I immediately moved to Anapa. Mid 80’s, city beach. But even then, all my insides protested against non-compliance with basic standards of behavior on the beach, regardless of whether you are a baby or a lady in the “last attack of youth.”

Is there no beach etiquette? Judging by the fact that from year to year people change clothes, covered with a towel, extinguish cigarette butts in the sand and walk along the promenade in shorts and bras(Oh, Yes, sorry, swimwear), it has not come up?! Nothing of the kind, it exists — I am happy to share with readers Passion.ru these simple rules. Especially since many are just planning their vacation.

On the beach and by the pool
Even if the area of your beach is more like a cat’s rookery, and looking at the crowd of people, you remember the footage from the movie “Be my husband”, it is still necessary to adhere to certain rules of etiquette. They, by the way, very much depend on what type of beach you have a rest. The beaches are family-run or shared, and the beaches were Topless (where the girls can sunbathe without the top accessories, swimsuit), nudist (here supposed to be without clothes) and separate for men and women. Depending on the type of beach depends on your “dress code”.

For your psychological comfort and the benefit of others it is recommended for a couple of weeks before the holiday a little “Browning”, weeding a couple of beds or go to the Solarium and, of course, to do hair removal. Including bikini area, so as not to drive in the paint of others.
Coming to the beach with a full marathon is not fashionable. Maximum — waterproof mascara and sunscreen. Continue reading

7 common mistakes travelers that you better not to commit

It is unlikely that someone will give up the opportunity to travel as often as possible, for example, not only to get out 1-2 times a year to the nearest sea, but also to spend weekends in other countries. That’s just in pursuit of his dream, some are beginning to bring the planning costs of the trip to the absurd and the output is not only overpay several times more, but also waste your time, effort and nerves. We have compiled a few items to save on which you do not want in any case. Unless, of course, you want your holiday to be spoiled.
Search for cheap flights
On the one hand, cheap tickets – it is an opportunity to travel more often and not to save up in advance for the coveted trip. But on the other hand, usually attractive prices are low-cost airlines, which have to save on almost everything from the airports themselves and ending with food, or rather, its absence. Be prepared for the fact that you may be offered to pay extra for registration, for the choice of place, for the bag (if it does not fit into the dimensions of hand Luggage or there will be several), for drinks and other products on Board. And if you sum up all these costs, you will see that the price of the flight has increased several times and for this amount it was possible to buy a standard ticket with a standard set of services.

Refusal of additional baggage
If you save on the ticket, be prepared for the fact that usually cheap options are paperless rates, providing only the ability to carry on Board hand Luggage weighing up to 10 kg. it’s Okay, because it is possible to travel with one backpack. But if suddenly you decide to buy family and friends Souvenirs or suddenly your favorite boutique will arrange a Grand sale and miss this event, you also can not, then for each additional bag or suitcase you will have to pay a tidy sum. In addition, some low-cost airlines are not allowed to carry free packages from Duty Free, despite the fact that often the prices in airport stores are much higher than in urban retail outlets, then there is no question of any savings. If you add up all these costs, it turns out that the “cheap” ticket is suitable only for those who are accustomed to travel light and not exactly tempted to bring home local delicacies, clothes or Souvenirs.
