Things often break and they need fixing. I’m a notorious savage when it comes to wooden hostel furniture and often travel with wood glue so everything at least appears to be in order at check-out.
That said, for most traveling with wood glue seems a bit excessive or unnecessary and they simply opt for a tube of super glue to help them through most fixes. While a two-part epoxy is likely best for most repairs, that means you’re traveling with two different tubes and that is far from ideal, especially when packing light.
For me, I generally travel with CrazyGlue as well as a four-ounce bottle of The Sticky Ass Glue SAG4OZ Waterproof Stubbornly Strong Glue . There is very little the name of this glue doesn’t tell you, as it is sticky ass as well as stubbornly strong.
I once enjoyed more than four hours of surfing in Nicaragua on a board nearly broken in half, as there was no ATM machine and the surf shop only took cash. The repair only took about five minutes of drying time and saw me continue to enjoy the rest of the day of truly spectacular waves rather than stubbornly drinking on the beach watching others enjoy their day of surfing.
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.

Sitges is one of Europe’s most lively and charming beach towns, and the perfect destination for a memorable spring break.
