Just because you’re lying on a beach enjoying a well-deserved vacation doesn’t mean you have to stop working!


One of the biggest obstacles in traveling is not being able to take everything you may need, especially work documents. But the right portable hard drive is like a bottomless suitcase … as long as what you’re packing is digital. This can be especially useful for photographers, who can empty a day’s worth of gorgeous memories onto the drive and start fresh the next day.


But choosing the right external hard drive depends on how you’ll use it, and a good one for the office may not be so good for traveling.


Like other tech-heads before us, we’re suggesting the 2TB Backup Plus Slim from Seagate. Named the Best Portable Hard Drive by Wirecutter, the Seagate has one of the lowest failure rates on the market, and is also one of the lightest, making it ideal for travel. It’s compatible with Mac or PC, and even lets you back-up from either your computer or mobile device with the free Mobile Download App. And thanks to the 3.0 USB connectivity, you don’t have to worry about plugging it in or excessive wires — it gets its power straight from the computer.


Don’t use a relaxing vacation as an excuse to skip out on your job — get back to work!

Frasca Food & Wine in Boulder, Colorado

Frasca Food & Wine isn’t your typical Italian restaurant. Crafted by master sommelier Bobby Stuckey and chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, the posh eatery features cuisine from a specific region of Italy. The menu is comprised of food primarily created in the sub-alpine Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. Because of this, it stands out among a packed crowd in Boulder’s ever-expanding dining scene.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

European Beaches Still Warm Enough for a Fall Vacation

The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of beach season. Although the temperatures start to dip, there is still plenty of European coastline ripe for swimming and sunbathing well into September. Take advantage of cheaper, off-season airfare and jet to one of these European beaches before fall weather makes its way south.
