The Morning Shave

How to rent a car when you’re under 21. – At age 42, I don’t have these problems anymore.  But, it totally frustrated me when I was younger when you couldn’t rent a car until 21 or 25, depending on the company.

21 Items Our Editors Pack for Every Single Trip. – Ok, I agree with most of these items.  And some of them are specifically for women.  But, really, a travel pillow?  Anytime I see someone at the airport 1) I want to punch them and 2) I think they’re a rookie flyer.

Travel Pillow

Travel Tip: You don’t need a travel pillow for ANY domestic US flight.


Spirit Airlines, not as bad as it used to be. – The bar is set so low for Spirit Airlines.  Basically, it is like someone stopped stabbing you and is now only punching you in the face repeatedly.

12 hilarious out-of-office messages for your next vacation. – Hilarious and unique.  I’m definitely going to use #10 whenever I retire.

What to do when your ears get clogged on a plane. – OMG, this is the absolute worst pain if you’re flying with a head cold.  Luckily, I haven’t ruptured an ear drum, but there have been times where I’ve had excruciating ear pain from flying with a cold.

    The fact the TL editors list Egyptian Magic at the tip of their list gives it a bit of street cred in my book. (I’ve written about my love of it at least twice… that stuff is awesome!) I agree with you on the travel neck pillow… it’s ridiculous unless you are flying to Asia in coach and then it’s a “must have”.
