Welcome to The Morning Shave.  We read a ton of travel articles each day for our personal research and to share the best travel tips and tricks with you.  Here are the articles for Saturday, March 4, 2017, that we think you should read.


The Morning Shave

The EU is threatening to require visas from US citizens. – We can’t threaten other countries with increased requirements to visit the US without expecting them to retaliate.  Isolation is not a good thing.

Universal emphasizes that Volcano Bay is more than a water park. – We’re visiting Orlando later this month, but it looks like we’ll need to make a return trip soon.  This park looks pretty amazing!

Hotels finding fitness areas get scant use. – I always bring workout clothes and a swimming suit with the best intentions of using a hotel’s amenities.  But, between work responsibilities and exploring the local area for pleasure travel, I’m usually too tired to follow through and actually work out more than a third of my stays.

The TSA Is About To Get More ‘Touchy / Feely’. – In case you thought your TSA experience couldn’t get any worse, this is a reminder that things could always be worse.

Beer lover? “Hop on” this craft brew hotel experience. – Finally, a reason to visit Ohio!

Flexibility, a Travel Mantra. – Totally agree.  You gotta go with the flow.  Just remember, would you rather be on vacation, or back at work?  Here’s a little hint… nobody dreams of work while on vacation, but everyone dreams about their next vacation while at work.
