The Morning Shave
These 5 Airports Are Ending Uber and Lyft Curbside Pickup. – You generally save money by using these rideshare services, but it seems that airports and taxi companies are conspiring against travelers to make it harder and harder to use them. Don’t give in to the convenience. Taxis are the past, rideshare is the future. Use my referral links to sign up for Uber and Lyft and get some free credits to start your account.
What You Should — and Should Not — Write On Your Luggage Tag. – As the article says, I recommend using a business address or just listing name, phone number, and email address on your bag tags. Having your home address on your bag tag can invite criminals and stalkers into your life.
How to check your hotel room for hidden cameras. – My friend Shubhayan checks for cameras every time he travels. I have never thought about it, but more and more stories are popping up where this is a problem.
The Most Annoying Things About Travel. – These are definitely first-world problems, but they are totally frustrating. For example, my kids always want to bring extra things, but then my wife or I end up carrying them when they want to play, get bored with it, or fall asleep (then we’re carrying them too!). Which of these annoy you the most?
