TravelWise 3-Piece Packing Cube System Review

 TravelWise 3 Piece Packing Cube System Review

The travel packing mantra is always “less is more”.  Adding anything to my suitcase is a critical decision on balancing weight, space and necessity. Very few non-apparel items make it on the necessary list. So needless to say, I was skeptical when the TravelWise Packing Cube System came to my door. Was this another bogus SkyMall-type item? Or a valuable addition to my travel collection. Good news… it’s the latter.

I received (complimentary) 1 small, medium and large cube from the 3-piece set to try out. I’m a firm believer that packing is an art and a science. And the TravelWise Packing Cubes helped me on this test to pack to near perfection.

Titanic The Experience: A Review of the Orlando Attraction

 Titanic The Experience: A Review of the Orlando Attraction

Don’t mistake it’s placement on International Drive as yet another tourist trap attraction. Titanic the Experience* just may surprise you. That’s the discovery I had this past weekend as I explored this fascinating exhibit nestled between a Chinese buffet and Indian Restaurant.

Your experience begins with a tour from a “passenger” aboard the Titanic. At first I was a bit skeptical at this approach. I mean, I want to explore the artifacts at my own pace. But after five minutes, I was convinced that this was the best way to explore the Titanic.

Hidden Gems of Orlando

Orlando is most commonly known for it’s theme parks and tourist attractions illuminated in neon lights, but the City of Orlando offers a lot more than roller coasters, characters, water rides and discount buffets. If you’re looking for something beyond what’s published in the Florida guidebooks, try some of these hidden, Orlando gems that are favorites of the locals.

One of Orlando’s signature events is their food trucks. You can get everything from Barbeque to cupcakes, dog treats to vegan specialties and even breakfast. Always arrive early to minimize your wait in line and bring a few chairs to eat in. And if you go with friends, you can split up to the different trucks and sample everyone’s food.
