After Walking Inside This Strange Structure I Don’t Ever Want To Go To A Hotel Again. WOW!

Imagine checking into a hotel that is located right along a scenic inland waterway. As you seek out and head toward your accommodations a portable walkway takes you over calm and serene waters. At the end of the short trip you arrive at your very own floating pod, a private catamaran that contains all the comforts of a first rate hotel room with unbeatable views of the surrounding nature and wildlife. After settling in you decide to explore and head off to find more isolated shores, so you navigate away from the dock and slowly motor off into the sunset.

If this sounds like heaven then check out this neat video that offers an inside look at the floating hotel design that recently won the Millennium Yacht Design Awards. The innovative and unique concept takes experiencing nature up close and personal to a whole new level and blends it with the comfort, privacy, and modern luxuries of a hotel stay.

Guests are free to pick and choose where they go and stay on the water, giving them the ability to seek out total and complete privacy away from others if they wish. The floating hotel features a central unit which serves as a reception area where guests would check in. In addition, the main unit would house a restaurant, event hall, staff offices, and a cafe. Portable walkways lead to guest pods which can easily be separated and navigated along the waterway. Each pod is designed with sleek, modern interiors, and sleeps 2-4 people comfortably.

The main goal of the design is to give guests an uninterrupted view of nature, and freedom of movement, as they slowly navigate around and explore the waterways. Thus, designers created pods with large glass windows, open floor plans, and spacious outdoor decks to allow nature in.

The fact that you can seek out more privacy simply by moving your room is a very attractive option for many travelers. For those who like being social and active, there is also a planned beach platform. It would host a variety of outdoor water sports activities available for guests to do, including swimming, fishing, diving, and sunbathing.

There is something for everyone to enjoy and there is so much more that a place like this could offer. At this stage the floating hotel is just a design concept and it has not been built. Whether or not it ever does come to fruition depends on where it will eventually be located. Hopefully it will happen soon because the idea and concept has already won many over.

Cops Are Now Warning People To Take A Picture Of Your Hotel Room Right When You Walk Through The Door.

In the United States alone there are more than one million people enslaved today. Many of them were brought into the country by smugglers who specialize not in drugs, but in human trafficking.

According to the U.S. State Department, every year between 600,000 and 800,000 people are trafficked across the country’s borders, half of them are children and 8 out of 10 are female. They are a fraction of the estimated 21 million people who have been trafficked around the world according the UNICEF, and demand for slavery and cheap labor has been steadily increasing.

The numbers are shocking and eye-opening, they reflect the fact that human trafficking has now become the world’s fasted growing crime. In terms of scope and industry size it ranks third internationally, behind only illegal drugs and arms trafficking.

The demand for cheap labor and sexual exploitation are the primary driving forces behind human trafficking. Victims are modern day slaves who are being held against their will, abused, abducted, coerced, or threatened into compliance. They face unimaginable horrors and treatment at the hands of their abusers and yet most people can’t even image that this sort of crime is occurring every single day all across America, even in their own neighborhood.

Part of what makes human trafficking so hard to detect and investigate is that victims are constantly being moved around. Traffickers rarely stay in one spot, instead they change locations frequently to evade law enforcement and make it super hard for authorities to track them down. That’s also why they use hotel rooms. Not only do hotels afford criminals easy and convenient places to hide, they are perfect because rooms can be paid for in cash. Statistics show that the majority of all trafficking crimes take place in hotel rooms. When traffickers bring their victims to a new hotel room they usually take a picture of them and upload it online as a type of advertisement. That’s where the TraffickCam App comes into play.

TraffickCam takes user submitted photos of their hotel rooms and compiles them into an efficient, comparative search database. When traffickers post their photos online, authorities can search them against the database and therefore use it to try and find a match. Everything in the photos that app users submit, from the wallpaper patterns, carpeting, artwork, and the view outside the windows can be used to match and find where traffickers pictures were taken.

Here’s how it works: Download the free app to your smartphone and the next time you stay at a hotel snap 4 quick pictures of your room. When you submit them include the name of the hotel you’re staying at and the room number. You can do this when you’re leaving and these images are then added to the database. One day in the future, your picture could help to identify and locate victims and their traffickers. It only takes less than a minute and yet it may make all the difference in the world to someone out there who desperately needs help.

Please watch the accompanying video for more information on the human trafficking epidemic and how the TraffickCam app works. Be sure to pass this along to friends and family as well, the more people who are aware of the issue and who use the app, the better the chances of it saving lives.
