The Morning Shave

8 Travel Hacks That Will Get You More for Your Money. – I totally agree with these, especially picking hotels that offer extra amenities.  We stay at Residence Inn and Embassy Suites a lot because of the extra space, mini to full kitchens, and free breakfast.  It always helps when you have loyalty status as well.

Passenger Spots a Beer Next to Pilot in Airplane’s Cockpit. – Hey, we all like to have a beer now and then… but not while working.  Especially if you’re a pilot!  One beer isn’t going to do much to someone, but why take the chance?

Mr Pilot, please wait until after you land to start drinking, ok?


Uber is OUT in London, Now what?! – London has a special relationship with taxis unlike any other city that I’ve traveled to, so I can understand their reluctance with Uber.  However, when has ignoring technological progress ever been the right call?  Hello 8-track, VHS, horse & buggy… you get the idea.

33 Ways to Make a Long Flight More Comfortable. – There are some good tips here.  I just focus on enjoying the ride, getting some reading done, and watching a movie.  I’m totally anti-pillow, so I would never bring something that you’ll have to carry around everywhere on your trip… I just fold up my hoodie and use that instead.

Easy Free 1,000 Marriott Rewards Points. But, You Need To Act Fast! – Free points are awesome!  I set a calendar reminder for Sundays so that I remember to Tweet to Marriott to earn these points.
