Avoid Baggage Fees With Nude Vacations

Schuttauf, who discovered the appeal of nude resorts while working a high-stress job as a lawyer for a big firm, compares it to the difference between walking on the beach with shoes on and walking barefoot on the beach.

"When you go to a nudist resort for a day visit, it's like a weekend of vacation in terms of relaxation," he says. "Go for a weekend and it's like getting a week's vacation."

Daniels and her husband, Jim Bailey, started Castaways in 1991. Clothing-optional vacations were a hobby for them at the time, not a business. But message boards for like-minded travelers showed them that there was a dearth of information about clothing-optional resorts. It's turned into a colorful sideline for the company, which chartered "naked flight" to a clothing-optional resort in Mexico back in 2003.

Turns out the Federal Aviation Administration doesn't care what you wear or don't wear, as long as you buckle that seatbelt. Of course, it's still not wise to show up for a regular commercial flight wearing nothing.

Castaways is currently planning a nude river cruise in the south of France this summer.

"There are a lot of people who lead a stressful life and want to get as far away from the every day as possible," says Daniels.

No Clothes Means No Sun Protection

Nudist travel doesn't always guarantee no luggage. Daniels is passionate about shoes, and used to bring as many as 20 pairs. These days she says she holds herself to 10 or 11 pairs.

And, reminds the AANR, be sure to pack that sunscreen.
