1. You Have to Apply to Join This Vacation, A Three Month Foreign Adventure – Websites like Unfixed Points (www.UnfixedPoints.com), where you live your life on vacation, are growing exponentially. You can now live and work in three exotic cities in three different countries for less than the cost of staying home. UnfixedPoints.com offers the chance to experience three different South American cities for 30 days each, in a program that includes transportation, housing, work space, 24/7 in-country support, plus social events and excursions with a peer group of about 30 other adventurous travelers. Perfect for people who can work remotely via the internet, including writers, programmers, entrepreneurs, and consultants.
Space is very limited and applications are being accepted now for the fall.

Using a special tablet, guests will be able to request that the robot butlers perform tasks such as delivering packages, supplies, meals and drinks right to the door of their cabin- without ever having to make a customer service call.

The technology is already available, and goes into practice via electronic valets in a Los Angeles luxury apartment building called "Ten Thousand" that opens to renters in January 2017.
