Travellers missing their own furry friend or looking for a companion while taking a walk can bring along the resident Fairmont dog for extra security and the comfort of home.

Located in Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnehaha Falls can be found near the entrance to Minnehaha Park, a 193-acre park divided into two main portions: an upper section above the falls which is kept trimmed and maintained like many other city parks, and the lower section which is largely left in a natural state and popular for free climbing due to the steep terrain.
Due to the extremely cold temperatures during the winter months, the waterfall is known to freeze, creating a dramatic cascade of ice that can last well into Spring. The falls are located in Minnehaha Creek, a tributary of the Mississippi River, close to where the creek meets back with the Mississippi. [Source] Photograph by Matt Sepeta

Yesterday I posted about picking up a girl on a plane and I got to thinking of what the next logical step would be and of course that would be renewing my membership in the internationally infamous mile high club!
I’m not sure quite where this fantasy came from but what I do know is that it’s now universal! Having sex in the sky has such a powerful attraction that we risk embarrassment, injury and a criminal record just so we can get our rocks off a mile high! It’s such an enduring fantasy that it even inspired a record chain, an airline and a global super brand; Virgin, one has to wonder how much Sir Richards Branson’s choice of business name was affected by the fact he lost his virginity on a plane?
