Love this idea that I recently came across so thought I would share!

When it comes to stashing stuff securely in hotel rooms, a safe can be a traveler’s best friend. But for those for whom a secret stash turns into a lost item, one member of BA cabin crew has offered a top tip: travelers should keep one of the shoes they plan to wear on the return flight in the safe.
When it comes to staying in hotel rooms with personal valuables, somewhere safe is usually somewhere out of sight. But when it comes time to go home, this tactic can sometimes backfire; after all, as the old adage goes, out of sight is, of course, out of mind.
For those prone to losing their valuables, one British Airways (BA) cabin crew member offered travelers her top tip on how they can keep track of their belongings during the course of a hotel stay.
Speaking to Business Insider late last year, Ty Opoku Adjei said, “When we go on holiday, it’s natural to want to keep your valuables in the hotel room safe.” She added that it wasn’t unknown for some travelers to “make it all the way to the airport only to realize they’ve left their passport in the safe.”
Adjei explained, “My top tip is to keep one of your shoes you plan to wear on your journey home in the safe. If you do this, you’ll never leave the hotel room without checking the safe ever again… as long as you don’t forget where you put your shoe, of course!”

And if looking for something quirky outside the normal "tourist" regime, this one is for you! Also for fans of Hotel Inspector Alex Polizzi she visited this area on a recent series she made covering her home country Italy. I have posted a bit more blurb, travel dates, pricings and few snaps of the area below;

The planned itinerary looks like this;
Day 1: Arrival Day
Upon arrival at Bari Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel where there will be time to settle in and meet your Tour Manager and fellow guests before dinner.

Day 2: Bread & Pizza in Altamura
Today is a day of bread and pizza! We’ll visit the local bakery where we can see how the area’s unique Altamura bread is produced, followed by a hands-on cooking lesson. Our cookery session will be followed by a tasty pizza lunch at Tre Archi, and in the afternoon, we shall walk to the Altamura Archaeological Museum before enjoying some free time before dinner in the evening.

Day 3: Antipasti & Gravina
This morning, we shall pay a visit to Mina’s Vegetable Garden to gather produce to create vegetable antipasti and side dishes during our cookery lesson today. We’ll follow this up with lunch and an afternoon walk into the town of Gravina, taking the route over the aqueduct for dramatic views of the town and valley. In Gravina, we’ll explore its hidden world of tunnels, cellars, stone churches and granaries before taking the train back to Altamura.

Day 4: Matera
A walking tour of Matera awaits us today. Our local guide will explain the history of this fascinating town, most famous for its extensive cave-dwelling districts. In the afternoon, there will be some free time to explore more at your own pace and soak up the atmosphere.

Day 5: Free Day
On our 7-night holidays, there is a free day when no excursions are offered. This is an ideal opportunity to relax around the hotel, walk independently or visit local places of interest.

Day 6: Desserts Galore & Local Exploration
Today’s cookery lesson tackles desserts – good news for anyone with a sweet tooth! Afterwards, we’ll enjoy lunch together at Tre Archi before heading out on our afternoon walk to explore the local area.

Day 7: Cheese Making & Italian Mains
On our final day together begins with an 8km walk to the cheese farm at Masseria Scalera, where we’ll learn about Apulian cheese production and enjoy a typical farmers’ lunch together before getting ready for our last cookery lesson. Today we’ll get hands-on with Italian main courses and then settle in for a farewell dinner to celebrate our week.

Day 8: Departure Day
Depart after a leisurely breakfast.

Skiplagging..what is it and why you should avoid it.

What’s Skiplagging?
Skiplagging, aka hidden city ticketing, is purchasing a cheaper airfare that has a layover in your actual destination and getting off the plane in that city with no intention to continue the rest of your trip. Your true destination is hidden in the middle, and it’s possible to save a handsome amount of cash by booking such itineraries. This is entirely possible and unwittingly entered in to if booking your travel online with some search engines out there. You see a cheap deal you have no idea what has been "arranged" behind the scenes.
Is Hidden City Ticketing Legal?
Technically, it’s not illegal in a sense that it’s not a crime. However, booking such tickets violates most airlines’ contracts of carriage, which you agree to by purchasing a flight in the first place. If an airline catches you practicing hidden city ticketing, it can force you to pay full price, nullify your loyalty account or refuse future service.

Airlines know that most flyers prefer nonstop flights and purposely charge more money for these desirable options. This is the reason the practice of hidden city ticketing has become so popular among crafty travelers.
Hidden city ticketing, or skiplagging, is buying a less expensive flight that has a layover in your preferred destination, getting off the plane in that city and not continuing the rest of your journey. Your true destination is hidden inside the ticket, and you can save money by doing this.
However, you have to be careful when booking such tricky tickets. First of all, you have to fly with a carry-on bag only. Checked luggage flies to your final destination and you won’t have access to it in that middle city. Second, you have to buy a one-way ticket because if you skip any portion of a flight itinerary, the airline will cancel the remaining segments.
Obviously, the airlines aren’t fond of this type of passenger behaviour. German carrier Lufthansa even went as far as suing one of its passengers for skiplagging, but that’s an extreme end of the punishment spectrum.
Legal action aside, here are a few reasons I don’t book hidden city tickets.It’s Against Terms and Conditions
When you purchase a flight, you enter into a contract with the carrier. Somewhere in the long contract of carriage, which no one ever reads, it says that you agree to fly the itinerary you purchased, blah blah blah, and skiplagging is essentially breaking that contract. Violating the agreement allows the airline to punish you the way it sees fit: forcing you to pay for the cost of the original ticket, erasing your frequent-flyer mileage balance or worse—refusing service.
I Like Earning Miles Too Much
Although skiplagging is technically not illegal, you still don’t want to be caught by the airline, and abusing the money-saving method raises too many flags. So, because you want to be as incognito as possible, in addition to wearing shades and a hat, you want to hide your frequent-flyer number from the airline when booking hidden city itineraries. Personally, I like earning miles way too much to be messing with the opportunity to earn more or risking to lose my entire balance. No, thanks!
Irregular Operations Can Mess Up My Plans
Things happen, and your flight can get delayed or canceled for various reasons, such as weather, mechanical or missing crew. Whatever it is, the airline likely will re-route you on another flight to your final destination. You might get “lucky” and get rebooked on a nonstop flight to wherever you didn’t want to go in the first place. You see, the airline’s part of the deal is getting you to where your ticket says final destination is, not the layover city. What then? I don’t want to be the one to find out.
The Effect on Fellow Travellers
Unfortunately, airports are like the Hunger Games, and it’s every man for himself. However, buying up seats with no intention of using them makes it more expensive for other passengers to buy the remaining seats. So, let’s be nice to one another and nip this questionable practice in the bud. I recommend using other techniques to save on airfare, such as redeeming frequent-flyer miles or taking advantage of flight deals through a professional travel broker.
