Flight Delayed? Know Your Rights (or Lack Thereof)

Being the ex-general counsel at Expedia and now running Avvo and its free legal advice Q&A forum, I am often asked “What are my rights if I my flight is horrendously delayed?” This question usually comes from someone who just spent an unexpected afternoon on the tarmac due to flight delays.

Well, before you get too excited to learn about your rights, I must inform you that you don’t have any. Zippo. Zilch. Nada. Yep, let’s get your gasps out of the way up front. I know you hear about travelers’ rights all of the time on TV, and you are sure that as an American you have the right to sue any flight attendant who refuses you an extra bag of party mix, but the reality is that your only rights are those that the airline gives you in its carriage agreement.

You really should hurry up to see the city of Phnom Penh in the today state, as it is still genuine and out of the mass tourism.

Colonial villa in Phnom Penh

The city of Phnom Penh was grounded in the XIIIth century, when enemies conquered the Cambodian capital of Angkor Wat. The local ruling family took then a stupa, which is a ritual statue, from Angkor and settled the new capital at Phnom Wat (Phnom was a local wealthy widow very useful and important in this operation). You can still visit today the Phnom Wat and the originally stupa. It is nothing very spectacular, but the surrounding park is magnificent. Almost 100 years long, up to 1953, Cambodia was ruled by the French colonial empire. They brought a major contribution to the development of Phnom Penh, who became the Pearl of Asia. The city was almost totally rebuild, and in many places there still are traces of the French colonial style in architecture and way of life

There are several things that you need to consider if you want to get a good camera that you can bring when you travel. You have to think of the price, weight, size, and the functions that will be useful to you. Today a lot of people buy digital SLR since they go for the excellent quality of the images, yet you will see them just using the stock lens, set it on auto, and shoot pictures. If this is the case, then all you might need is a compact digital camera.


Why buy an SLR?

If you are getting a DSLR basically you are after the high quality pictures it can produce. Unlike a compact camera, the SLR can give you accurate focusing, excellent ISO, and ability to adjust to a wide array of light settings.

Defining a strange place or landscapes is not an easy task. Strange means only out of normal, beyond the common sense, or something more ? For most of the terrestrials, Antarctica or the Everest are strange places, aren’t they ? Thinking deeper, Mount Everest is maybe not so strange, considering other very high mountains, whether close to it or on other continents. O.K., than strange means unique! The strangest places on Earth seem to be not situated on Earth, they tend to be lunatic, or even alien looking. If you agree this definition, O.K. , and if not the same. If you feel this definition to need fine tuning, be free to deepen and refine it, letting me now about it.

The following destinations are in my opinion world’s strangest destinations:
