De-Clutter Your Hotel Room As Soon As You Check In

  De-Clutter Your Hotel Room As Soon As You Check In Photo by William Warby A hotel room, however well appointed, is an alienating dream-space. You're supposed to do all your most intimate things in this place designed and furnished and filled by someone else. =If I'm going to spend three days in there, I need to be really free and able to think. I take every piece of paper, every note or book, and put it in drawers to hide them. I don't like visual clutter. And in the bathroom, too -- there's a crazy amount of stuff they shove in there.

THIS is the first hotel in the world where the walls are built entirely from salt.

Palacio de Sal in Bolivia is made up from 10,000 tonnes of the stuff and was the brainchild of Juan Quesada Valda.

The unique hotel is the edge of Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat.

The building was constructed of about 1 million 35-cm (14-inch) salt blocks, which are used for the floor, walls, ceiling and furniture, including beds, tables, chairs and sculptures.

Those who stay there are banned from licking the walls after the hotel was rebuilt.

The hotel boasts 42 rooms and looks like your average hotel – until you find out it is made up from blocks of sodium chloride.

Ingredients That Add Flavour Without Adding Salt

  Ingredients That Add Flavour Without Adding Salt Adapting to a low-sodium diet can be really hard. Your best bet is to cook most of your own meals, since starting from fresh ingredients gives you the most control over your milligrams. Adapting to a low-sodium diet can be really hard. Your best bet is to cook most of your own meals, since starting from fresh ingredients gives you the most control over your milligrams. But even though your tastebuds will adjust, the fact remains: subtracting sodium subtracts flavour.

Hotel for all seasons ! The luxury resort built entirely of SALT where £85 rooms really go against the grain (but you're not allowed to lick the walls). The Palacio de Sal is perfect for the well seasoned traveller because it is made from 10,000 tonnes of the stuff.

Due to a lack of conventional construction materials in this area, many of the hotels here are built entirely with salt blocks cut from the Salar itself. The most famous one is called Palacio de Sal, Spanish for "Palace of salt ".

During their visit guests can enjoy incredible mountainous views and spa treats.

It also has a nine hole golf course which has a unique surface made of...salt.

Jet lag: What causes it and how to get over it .
Jet lag. We all suffer from it, but like so many of life's small afflictions – poverty in one's youth, taxes – jet lag affects the rich classes less. Even though a flyer in business class is crossing exactly the same number of time zones as those in sardine class, there's every chance they will cope better with jet lag. There's the soothing environment of the business class lounge, the stress-free, no-wait boarding, a wide and well-padded seat with heaps of legroom if this is a long-haul flight.
