For a Sturdy, Stylish Duffel Bag, Go for BAGGU

This dependable, canvas bag is a sleek, no frills bag that does its job: it carries your stuff. It’s flexible, light and compact, and has an adjustable shoulder strap for extra comfort. A BAGGU bag is really the only bag you’ll ever need.

Patagonia backpacks are praised for their organized structure and packing versatility. The Refugio Pack in particular is a waterproof, three-compartment pack complete with fleece-lined pockets and laptop sleeve. It also comes in a number of bright, fun colors.

For a Small Satchel with Big Space, Go for Army Surplus

When you need to pack a lot into a little, military satchels are basically your regular Mary Poppins’ bag. This tactical gear bag is made of sturdy polyester, a removable hard lining and seven pockets. Oh, and a pen organizer.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Road Trips in Northern Ireland

Renting a car will give you the freedom to explore Northern Ireland, small enough to be accessible even for those on shorter trips.
