It is not unusual to look at your medicine cabinet and wonder how you acquired so many products. That moment might inspire you to perform a thorough spring cleaning. This might leave you with some semblance of order, but between the free samples and the necessary creams and snake oils, there is still an unlawful excess. This is never more apparent than when you have to travel. The travel jars you bought expressly for this purpose have disappeared, or worse, they were not cleaned out from your previous trip and have been rendered useless. This is where a reliable travel kit comes in and the high-end company Aēsop is a specialist in knowing exactly what you need.

This company marries high-quality, plant-based ingredients with an aesthetic they describe as intelligent and sustainable. You have the feeling you are visiting an old-world pharmacy when dealing with these products. Although the travel options can be a little pricey in the form of a wider array of products you will see in the Boston or London travel kits, the Jet Set Kit includes classic shampoo and conditioner, as well as the geranium leaf body cleanser and rind skin body concentrate for $37. This carry-on friendly kit is just the ticket for a shorter trip.

Quick, Easy Energy Bites for Travel

Keeping your energy high is essential for any trip. But you can’t get all of your energy from coffee. Here are a few easy snacks you can keep on hand to recharge your battery on a long day.

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.

How to Evade Baggage Fees

In the modern age of air travel, checked baggage fees are as ubiquitous as duty-free shopping catalogs in the back pocket of the seat in front of you. Some airlines have even begun to charge for carry-on luggage, particularly for short-haul flights where most passengers end up bringing fewer bags for shorter trips. To avoid such fees, here are a few tips to keep in mind when booking and prepping for your next flight.
