Travel news you can use

Nifty finds



  • I generally avoid Buzzfeed Travel, but this listsicle of 27 incredible travel items has a couple of interesting finds I would actually use, like Bluetooth luggage tracking chips, flat plastic water bottles (which I already use), and a poncho-like travel blanket. I would not waste liquid bag space with portable sriracha.
  • As a tie-in for their new packing book, Lonely Planet has offered this list of tips for packing for your trip to the wilderness, the city, the rainforest, the desert and more!
  • Take this LP quiz to determine your packing personality. I got “obsessive compulsive” packer, while I don’t agree with the terminology, the ultra-organized sentiment explains me perfectly.

Zipping the suitcase
