The Morning Shave
9 Travel Accessories You Didn’t Know You Needed. – For me, the mini-luggage scale and the mini-umbrella are the ones I need the most. I have a bad habit forgetting to check the weather before going on vacation. Then, I get “surprised” by rain that I should have known was on the forecast.
Why Parents Should Skip Pre-boarding Flights With Kids, According to Samantha Brown. – Unless you are flying Southwest, it is often best to let the kids run around and burn off energy as much as possible before you board an airplane. Overhead bin space can be a problem with this strategy, so this is the only time I’m in favor of checking a bag so there’s one less thing to worry about. Possible bonus for everyone on board: the little munchkins will sleep through the entire flight.
CDC to screen at three US airports for signs of new virus from China. – The latest import from China isn’t a new iPhone model. It is a contagious disease that authorities are working hard to contain. One person from Washington state has already been diagnosed. Remember to wash your hands with warm water and soap, get rest, and eat healthy to build up your immune system. Packing an extra orange or packet of EmergenC wouldn’t hurt either.
The 8 Best Hotel-Related Movies of All Time. – There are so many good comedies, dramas, and horror movies that are related to movies. And I think these movie settings inspire people to travel more. For instance, I know a lot of people visited the Park Hyatt Tokyo after seeing “Lost in Translation.” What are some of your favorite hotel-related movies? Comment below and I’ll add them to my Netflix queue.
Ice Bumper Cars Are Even More Fun Than Ice Skating — Here’s Where to Hit the Rink This Winter. – Ok, this is way better than ice skating. And I’m not just saying this because I would totally fall on my rear when trying to ice skate. Hurry up and book your reservation, but these will totally sell out quickly. The ice bumper cars will be available until February 28, 2020.
