Among the myriad concerns the everyday traveler may have when approaching any trip, safety and security are most likely the most important, but protecting yourself from both bodily harm and petty theft can distract you from the real reason for your travel: to escape daily life and immerse yourself in another culture. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in travel accessories that can perform multiple functions, like carrying your gear while also protecting it with state-of-the-art security features.
Plastic-averse travelers may shudder at the thought of using a resealable, zip-closed plastic bag for travel-sized liquids each and every time they travel. While some sturdier brands can be used multiple times, there’s a possibility the plastic could rip or the zipper could malfunction, therefore resulting in a free-for-all liquid disaster in your luggage. More secure toiletry bags can be safer bets, but fancy fabrics and designs can conceal the contents within, making them futile travel companions when it comes to TSA screenings.
When it comes to beach trips, the fun tends to linger in your suitcase and make its way home with you. It's almost impossible not to bring sand home in your beach towel. Washing it up at your accommodations is sometimes effective, but also leaves a mess on the floor to vacuum up.
Comfort is key when you’re traveling to a destination where you plan to do a lot of walking. However, you still want to look stylish when you explore a new place. Put away the clunky sneakers and swap in these comfortable, yet chic travel shoes.
