Never Be Stuck for a Toilet, Strange Travel Tip #3
As part of our Strange and Bizarre Travel Tip Series promoting our “Spook-tacular” Halloween Sale, here’s our strange travel tip #3…
Today’s bizarre travel tip is especially for the ladies….
You know how it is when you have to go…but there’s not a toilet in sight. And, it certainly doesn’t help that your male companion can slip behind the nearest bush for a quick and discreet pee.
This is particularly frustrating in a new place where you don’t know when you’ll stumble upon the next public loo…or what exactly you’ll find when you get there.
In some parts of the world, “toilet” means a mere hole in the ground. And, even where more modern facilities exist, you never know what condition you’ll find them in.
Enter the “GoGirl”…
In a nutshell, this female urination device allows you to pee while standing up, discreetly and hygienically (behind that bush, if necessary). It’s used by women in all sorts of situations — traveling, skiing, hiking, sailing, driving…even just shopping!
Made of medical-grade silicone, the GoGirl is disposable or washable and reusable and hides easily in your purse. Prices from $12.99 at www.go-girl.com.
As its branding boasts, “Don’t take life sitting down!”
[EDITOR’S NOTE: A toilet in the cockpit? Sounds bizarre…but that’s exactly where you’ll go to relieve yourself as a guest in the honeymoon suite of Stockholm’s Jumbo Hostel. This stationery converted jet at Stockholm Airport has proper bedrooms and offers a great opportunity for some plane-watching. The Jumbo Hostel is just one of the strange lodgings featured in our “Weird, Wacky, and Unusual Hotels of the World” guide…
Inside its pages, you’ll also find ice hotels, underwater hotels, treetop hotels… rooms in retired helicopters, and more. You’ll also find a few REALLY wacky places like hotels with upside-down rooms, beds in animal cages (for the kids), and rooms with waterfalls in the bathroom.
Staying in a unique hotel is a fun way to add spice to your journey… and find great travel article fodder, too.
