Is it OK to have an "fling" while traveling?
I'm going on a trip in a few months to France. Well, I made a penpal there (a girl). We've become quite close over the past 2 months as we talk everyday. She's been lately dropping some big hints that she likes me. I think she's cute, and she's a very nice and helpful person (she's been really helpful with my travel plans and setting my transportation methods). I just don't know what to do. I don't think I could do a LDR. Not because of the physical distance, but because I have too much to focus on in my life. So, I don't know. Should I friendzoned her? She IS very cute. But, I really worry if we fool around or have sex on my trip, that we are going to get attached. Which is something I can't deal with. She's a nice girl, so I actually care about her feelings.
I just don't know if it would be "ok" if we just have a great time together while I'm there, and bang out. And that's just it? It doesn't seem right to me..
Places we have traveled and our opinion on them.

Japan: Weird as fuck...literal definition of weird, off-putting, creepy and just all around degenerate.
England: Totally miserable weather, miserable people, chavs.
France: Pretentious dickheads, Paris is a literal shithole outside of the Eiffel tower
The entire section of central Europe.:Pretty much the twilight zone...otherwise pretty nice...Definitely underrated.
Australia: I liked it...Australia didn't like me though.
New Zealand: I liked it....Didn't stay long.

Here is something interesting.
I live in the UK and this can be found on the first page of ones passport.
"Her Britannic Majesty's Secretary of State Requests and requires in the Name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance,and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary."
Here is what I'm thinking. This is essentially a royal decree, and violating such a decree would be treason in the UK.
So, If you have a UK passport and you are traveling within the UK. If you come up to a toll road like the humber bridge, then, they MUST "allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance" by decree of Her Majesty!

Is it worth it to see Disney World as an adult? I was never able to go as a child, we were too poor. I am almost 30 now, and capable of going, but I fear it would just be an awkward experience as it seems generally geared towards children. Is there enough stuff for adults to do and experience, or should I just not bother? I like most all Disney stuff, and it was a large part of my childhood, but I've never really been an obsessive fan.

Hawaiian Airlines tries to charge a cold, elderly man $12 for a blanket.

Los Angeles (AFP) - A flight from Las Vegas to Honolulu was diverted to Los Angeles on Wednesday after a passenger refused to pay $12 for a blanket and was accused of being unruly, police said.
The incident unfolded after the Hawaiian Airlines flight took off from Las Vegas and the passenger -- a 66-year-old man -- requested a blanket as he was cold, Officer Rob Pedregon, a spokesman for the Los Angeles airport police, told AFP.
When told he would have to fork out $12 for the blanket, the unidentified man got upset and demanded to speak to a corporate representative from the airline, Pedregon said.
"During the in-flight call he allegedly said 'I would like to take someone behind the woodshed for this' and the pilot deemed that to be threatening behavior and ordered that the plane be diverted to Los Angeles," he said.
Police and FBI agents met with the passenger and crew when the plane landed in Los Angeles and determined after questioning both sides that no crime had been committed, Pedregon said.
The man voluntarily abandoned his flight and caught another one, he said.
Pedregon said the incident may not be the oddest he has handled "but it ranks right up there."
