ClickPack Pro

I don't often fund Kickstarter projects nor do I often purchase anything wearable online for fear that the item won't fit. The ClickPack Pro by Korin Design was a definite exception in both cases. Because we often travel to places where safety and security is questionable, I was intrigued by a backpack that is slash proof and lockable all the while being functional, stylish, and comfortable. After almost a year of waiting, I finally received my ClickPack Pro a few months back and have been in love with it ever since. Rather than listing out all of the features of this pack here, you will be better off watching this video about the backpack. T

BCOZZY

A while ago I put out a desperate Facebook post looking for recommendations on travel pillows. I had been searching high and low to find one that is comfortable while at the same time not being making me look totally ridiculous. A tall order to be sure! I find it facinating that we can put a man on the moon, but we haven't been able to make a functional and fashionable travel pillow. After lots of research, we settled on BCOZZY. While at first glance this travel pillow looks like any other wrap around pillow, there are a couple significant differences that set this travel pillow apart from the rest. The first is that they have made the area behind the neck more narrow, meaning that this pillow doesn't push your head forward. The second is that the front tips are a bit more narrow allowing you to stack them on top of each other providing additional chin support. We used this pillow on our last trip to Asia and found that, while it took a bit getting used to, it was very comfortable and dramatically increased the quality of our sleep while seated in economy.

Scott's Cheap Flights

This year has been our most travelled year to date, and with it, the potential to also be very expensive. That being said, we surprisingly haven't spent a lot of money on travel. This was partly because we played the points game and were able to get a lot of free travel. In addition to points, it has also been important to have a solid booking strategy. This has included using multiple booking sites; Expedia, Orbitz, Hotwire, Trivago, Google, Booking.com and Momondo just to name a few. But by far, the biggest help in booking travel at a discount has been Scott's Cheap Flights, a regular e-newsletter that highlights sales and informs you when mistake fares are available. You can opt for either the free subscription or the premium subscription. The biggest difference between the two is frequency. Opting in to the premium subscription gives you access to more sales, more often, to more destinations. Having said that, I have found the free subscription to be more than adequate and I get e-mail notifications on sales almost daily. In addition to highlighting the sales, Scott's Cheap Flights tells you how to book them and how long each sale is expected to last. T
