As we checked in and got directions to our mountain cabin, we were told we might encounter bears on the property.

Don’t feed them, we were warned.

OK, we said. Got it.

Not long after completing a nine-hour road trip from Chicago, we followed a winding road to an area just west of downtown Gatlinburg, Tenn., the gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The cabin was perched next to a steep, heavily forested slope that had been spared by the devastating 2016 fires. While my wife and I lugged our bags into our rustic vacation home, our three young kids excitedly explored the bedrooms, pool table and hot tub.

A Ryanair flight carrying 189 people from Dublin to Zadar on Friday the 13th had a sudden “in-flight depressurization” that caused the oxygen masks to drop and the pilots to make a rapid descent. The aircraft landed normally and passengers disembarked, The Guardian reports, however, over 30 passengers were taken to the hospital with bleeding from the ears, headaches, and more side effects from the rapid descent.

“We get on the plane. We’re flying, and next, of all the oxygen masks come down. We’re left in darkness for 15 minutes. There’s no reassurance, just people shouting, ’emergency, emergency,’” passenger Sarah McGarry told the Irish Times. “There was a newborn baby and children on the flight. People are screaming, and we don’t know what’s going on for 15 minutes . . . Then finally we’re told that we’re going to Germany.”

The Most Dangerous Place To Vacation Might Be Close To Home

Avoya Travel

Can we talk about the most dangerous place to vacation? It’s not necessarily some far-off banana republic immersed in a civil war. It can be right here, in your own backyard.

I should know. Since watching the Summer Olympics, my three little daredevils (ages 11, 13 and 16) have begged to visit Brazil. They managed to persuade me to go to Kenya last year, but we canceled our trip to Turkey because things were getting blown up at the airport. In the meantime, my kids insisted I drive to Laramie, Wyo. 

Why? Tornados, that’s why! 

We’d heard about a series of EF3 twisters packing 150 mph winds that touched down near Laramie. And since we were living in Fort Collins, Colo., only a one-hour drive, they had to go…..
