(Waypoints Global, February 2018) – When you travel with a first aid kit, you quickly learn how often you need a bandage, something for stomach upset, or a small flashlight. I never travel without a first aid kit, often relying on the a homemade kit, often forgetting to replenish everything I used up on the last trip.
(Waypoints Global, February 2018) – It is a nuisance to reach up into the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you every time you want something from your bag. I always envy other passengers who travel lightly and seem to have everything at hand easily.
(Waypoints Global – November 2017) – There are many different noise machines to choose from, but not many small and portable enough to bring with you. Promising “a better night’s sleep and sound masking through science,” the Lectro Fan micro is tiny enough to toss in your case if you are predicting a noisy location.
(Waypoints Global, November 2017) – I used to dread flying. Not because I was afraid to fly, but because my ears would instantly plug up after taking off giving me a major headache. It was even worse descending. Sometimes my ears stayed plugged for days, even weeks.

I have had so many different designs of water bottles fall by the wayside for various reasons: leaking, losing the lid, not fitting in my knapsack pocket and for obvious reasons, I will not use the plastic disposable, filling up the landfill site bottles.

I think they might be right.

The suitcase acts as your own personal concierge anticipating your every need.
(Waypoints Global, September 2017) – The first time I wore these pants, I was doing eight laps of the top deck of the cruise ship to complete the first mile. I didn’t finish the eighth lap because a fellow passenger stopped me to ask what kind of pants I was wearing. I told her they were Hykr pants™ made by KÜHL.
(Waypoints Global, September 2017) – When packing for a cruise going into the Highlands of Scotland and along the coast of Ireland, there was no question what coat I would take. The KÜHL Lena trench coat is so versatile and with the peached and waxed fabric, I knew it would take me from cool deck walks to colder wet excursions.
