Travel Etiquette Tips Every Jetsetter Should Know

January 29, 2015 6:04 pm

When you’re planning a big trip, you likely think about what to pack, what travel arrangements to make, and which sights to see once you arrive at your destination. But do you ever think about travel etiquette? Proper etiquette on airplanes or buses is something that most people don’t think about until they’re faced with an awkward situation. Avoid uncomfortable run-ins with fellow passengers with these smart tips:

  1. Start in the gate area. At the airport, try to take up as little space as possible in the gate area. Don’t leave bags or other luggage on empty seats, as these places often get very crowded.
  2. Stick with your zone. Although it might be tempting to board your plane early, boarding zones are created for a reason: to keep things running smoothly and efficiently.
  3. Recline kindly. Before you jolt your seat backward and hit another passenger’s knees or jostle his or her computer, simply turn around and ask if it’s okay.
  4. Don’t rush off the plane or bus. Even if you’re in a hurry, it’s important to let the seats ahead of you exit the plane first.
  5. Navigate the airport or subway station like a highway. This means always stay to the right while walking. If you’re on a moving walkway, walkers should stay to the left, standers on the right.

Linger: Fusion Fare in Denver

January 21, 2015 5:05 pm

Linger is a restaurant serving international fare in Denver. To this end, the menu here divides its dishes according to the region of the world from which the food originates.

You can start with a selection from the Americas, like Braised Goat Tacos or Wagyu Burger Sliders. If you're in the mood for a lighter meal, take a virtual trip to Europe and order the Watermelon & Heirloom Tomato Salad. In the mood for something different, try the African inspired Chicken B’stilla, a crispy pastry with almonds, apricot, golden raisins, cinnamon, lemon yogurt, and tabbouleh salad. Asia is represented here too with a Pad Thai made with scrambled egg, green papaya, rice noodles, bean curd, and peanuts.

Linger also offers a three-course dinner with an appetizer, entree, and dessert for a fixed per person or per couple price. Reservations are recommended for the restaurant, but Linger also has a rooftop patio with seating on a first-come, first-serve basis.
