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.
Airlines get a bad reputation. But for me, it’s not the absurd fees and inflexible policies that upset me the most, it’s the complete lack of compassion, personalization and acknowledgement and ownership of their mistakes that makes them, deservedly, one of the most loathed industries in the public’s eye. Here’s a perfect example from a recent Delta Airlines trip (and don’t forget to read about my American Airlines experience too).
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.
