Luxury Rental Cars

Poland on Friday said it was shutting its borders to foreign travellers to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has infected at least 68 people.

It would also impose two weeks of quarantine on people returning from abroad, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told reporters.

“Most of the cases that have been propagating the coronavirus epidemic in Poland are imported cases,” he said.

“We don’t want the coronavirus to head our way in droves.”

Morawiecki said Poland’s borders would be closed for 10 days, but that the government might prolong the shutdown.

By Alexander Marrow

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Five people, including one child, were killed in the Russian city of Perm on Monday when a hot water pipe exploded in the night and flooded a basement hotel room with boiling water.

At least three other people were taken to hospital with burns after the incident in the Mini Hotel Caramel, which is located in the basement of a residential building, the region’s investigative committee said.

A doctor treating the victims, Andrei Babikov, said a 33-year-old woman had burns covering 35% of her body. Two men aged 28 and 35 were in a less serious condition.

Hares straying too close to the runways at Dublin Airport in Ireland are being sucked up into the engines of taxiing planes, reports said.

There have been 54 incidents of animals being “ingested” by plane engines since Jan. 1 of this year, The Irish Post reported, citing data from the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA).

Hare obstructions reportedly were considered even more dangerous than bird strikes since the remains of the fluffy animals could spread over a large area of the engine. The splatter then could attract flocks of birds, causing further problems, according to the Post’s reporting.

Search Flights and Hotels in Rome!

Tourists hoping to create the famous ice cream scene from Roman Holiday are in for some disappointment.

The city of Rome has banned people from sitting on the Spanish Steps, a popular tourist destination, and doing so could earn visitors up to a €400 fine, or about $450, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

While the rule is one of several meant to “guarantee decorum” that took effect in July, police officers began patrolling the monument for violators this week.

But staying put doesn’t have to mean staying sedentary. Here’s how you can embark on a great adventure without even leaving the country.

Summer, winter, or in between, Rome hotels should be considered as a much-needed layer of insulation from the tumble of Roman life. Which can be difficult, in terms of urban services being infamously less than ideal.  The rule in Rome is to enjoy. But also trust your concierge to help you avoid trekking for miles after visiting the Forum and you can’t find a taxi back to your hotel.

Here are some of the best the Eternal City has to offer.

Copenhagen is not unlike its Swedish sister, Malmö, just across the bridge. But somehow the city’s tenuous land ties to the remote sea-washed reaches of northern Germany make it just that much more of an island refuge—official “Big Germany” happens far to the south and “Big Scandinavia” happens on the other side of the bridge, across the water. Copenhagen is its own small, intense thing, very much not Germany, but not quite Scando-land, either.

Its hotels are delightfully iconoclastic as well.

City officials have moved to end both free and paid tours of the historic area as increasing droves of visitors are reportedly “not respectful” to sex workers on the clock.

The news was announced by Amsterdam’s deputy mayor in a statement earlier this week.
