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.
The Christmas season is serious business in Ecuador with much of the population practicing traditional Roman Catholic beliefs. Though Christmas is celebrated on Dec. 25, the day before might hold more cultural significance. Christmas Eve is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, or the Pase del Nino Viajero – The Passing of the Traveling Child.
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.

Streets lined with festive holiday lights and decorations is a tell-tale sign the holidays are right around the corner. My favorite holiday tradition is going to Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, Pennsylvania, and driving through the Holiday Light Show. My family and I have gone pretty much every year since I was a little girl.
