This Is Why You Should Never, Ever Sleep While a Plane Is Taking Off or Landing

  This Is Why You Should Never, Ever Sleep While a Plane Is Taking Off or Landing You’ve made it. You managed to navigate your way through the world’s largest airport without robot assistance; you breezed through security because you didn’t pack any items that get you flagged by the TSA; and you successfully boarded the plane. Now you’re comfortable in your seat in the (kind of incredibly germ-ridden) cabin, and there’s even a little bit of elbow room, as the flight isn’t fully booked for once. With the hassle behind you, you settle in with your neck pillow, pop some Kenny G on your iPod, and get ready to spend quality time sleeping on a plane.

Why Do We Live a Vanlife ? As with any lifestyle, it means something different to each person that is living it. So, how on earth do we afford to travel the world full - time when we’re both only working three days per week?!

Weaving through the stars of endless continents, exploring off-grid forests, rejecting working for a wage. No doubt, living life on the road in a converted van feels pretty appealing.

And it seems a lot of people agree. The hashtag #Vanlife has featured in 3,180,386 Instagram posts at time of publish: the feed filled with sunsets, very good looking people and dreamy outstretched roads. So what is it like for the people who actually do it? We decided to find out.

Brighton natives Lauren, 28, and Craig, 34, have been travelling the world for ten years. They’ve bought and sold five camper vans along the way, backpacking the rest. For them, vanlife is an affordable way of exploring the globe and lends itself to a simple, economical lifestyle. But, Lauren feels the social media-fication of the lifestyle may jar with its beginnings.

There Are No Countries in the World That Begin with These 2 Letters

  There Are No Countries in the World That Begin with These 2 Letters Photo: ShutterStock Bet You Can’t Name a Country That Begins With These Two Letters! Put your thinking caps on, globe-savvy readers. Can you name a country that starts with every letter in the English alphabet? Some might come to you right away, like Australia, Brazil, and Canada. Others could be trickier, like Kenya or Luxembourg. While you could go on like this for all 195 countries, you won't solve it for all 26 letters in the alphabet. In fact, no matter how long you muse and mull over this puzzling problem, there are two letters that no countries in the world start with. See if you can guess which ones they are. Ready for the answer? Drum roll, please: Turns out, no countries in the world start with the letters W or X. Some might be quick to point out that Wales, which is considered a country, starts with the letter W. But Wales is actually part of a larger 'sovereign state,' the United Kingdom, and is not a member of the United Nations (UN). As a result, it is often not included in official totals of countries. (This is the real difference between the United Kingdom and Great Britain.) If you guessed Y, you were close--but you probably forgot about Yemen, which is the only country in the world that starts with the letter Y. Meanwhile, Oman is the only country that starts with the letter O. Other rare letters include Q and Z; no countries but Zambia and Zimbabwe begin with the letter Z, while Qatar is the lone country that starts with Q.

How I Left Work Behind to Travel the World . Through high school and college, I took a pretty conventional path. As I sat in a room full of stuffy guys in suits, I realized I didn’t have any clue why I wanted this job – or any desire to work with these people.
