10 of the germiest places you encounter while traveling

SmarterTravel compiled 10 of the germiest places you may encounter while traveling, starting with: Airplane tray tables: Poor tray tables – we’ve seen them used as diaper-changing tables for newborns, dirty-tissue depositories and barf-bag holders.
