At 90 years old, just two days after her husband of 67 years passed away, Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Cancer treatment can be grueling and in Norma's case, it would be risky. According to her son on their Facebook page Driving Miss Norma, her doctor said that in addition to the much lower quality of life she would have had while going through treatment there was no guarantee that she would survive the initial surgery at all. 

Instead of going through with treatment she's been lucky enough to hop in an RV and travel with her son and daughter-in-law. 



They take her anywhere she wants to go and have been documenting their travels. She's become an inspiration to others who are in the process of making tough choices at the end of life.

Josh Reed, a very tall, bearded man with light colored hair made it to Germany through a London airport with a passport that belonged to his much shorter, brown haired girlfriend. 

He told The Sun, "I thought it was my passport, the lady checked it with my boarding pass. It wasn’t until we landed that I spotted it."

Even if they looked exactly alike, Reed said he and his girlfriend have different last names which is something that should be easy to spot on his ticket.  

Reed's girlfriend ended up sending his passport to him so he could return. As for the airport, they have promised to step it up on security checks.

Snowstorms in China have delayed thousands of travelers nearing the Chinese New Year. This woman thought her flight was cancelled. All the other passengers were rerouted and caught different flights but ten hours later, the plane still took off with its single passenger. 



Hopefully with such an empty cabin they upgraded her to first class. 

When Lydia Coutré took a trip to study abroad in Italy she took along some digital versions of her mom's old vacation slides. She matched up locations and camera shots to recreate the same photos her mother took 30 years ago. Now she's got side by side snapshots of how things have changed since then.

College student Sam Huang would put your mom's coupon clipping to shame.

In a video posted on YouTube, Huang shows how he was able to travel over 50,000 miles and visit 11 cities in First Class for $300.

To put that in perspective, the cost of the flights he took at retail price would be $60,000. And he did it all by some really crazy loopholes on Emirates First Class.

Here is a map of his cheap-o journey.

He flew in the Emirates First Class Suite, which is basically a tiny golden room with anything your heart desires.

What's his secret?

Well, it wasn't really that complicated. He used his frequent flyer miles to purchase a ticket from New York to Melbourne with long layovers in Milan, Dubai, Sydney, Auckland, and Singapore.

This man is a genius.

Is your name Elizabeth Gallagher? Do you live in Canada? No plans for Christmas?

If you answered yes to all of the above, then you could win a free trip around the world with this guy.

Toronto resident and recently eligible bachelor, Jordan Axani, decided that since he couldn't change the name on the tickets originally booked for his ex-girlfriend, so he would reach out on Reddit to anyone with the same name and offer it to her instead.

Here are the details of the trip from his Reddit post, just in case you aren't entire ready to spend several intimate weeks abroad with a complete stranger.

Some ground rules:

I am not looking for anything in return. I am not looking for companionship, romance, drugs, a trade, or to take selfies with you in front the Christmas Market in Prague. If you feel compelled to toss me a couple hundred bucks, great. Really the only thing I ask for is that you enjoy this trip and that it bring you happiness.

We can travel together and see some cool stuff - or not. I'm easy and have no problem with someone taking the tickets and doing their own thing (see ya on the plane!). Embracing the spontaneity of life is more my thing, though, so if you want to travel together (and are not an axe murder) I'm likely game.

This is for the flights only. In the wake of the breakup I have deferred all further planning for the trip. No hotels, trains or anything have been booked. You're on your own, bucko. Having said that, I will buy the first round of vino at JFK upon departure.

We can totally stay in India a couple days longer. Long story, but if we can come to agreement the airline can push back the return flight on both tickets (it's both or nothin') with no charge.

Modern Family editor Ryan Case recently took a four-hour flight behind what has to be the drunkest, most obnoxious passenger we've ever seen. Check out the entire tweeted saga below!
