Have you ever wondered what to do with that large duffel bag when you’re not using it? You know, aside from shoving it in the back corner of your closet and letting it soak up dust.


The Duffster is an awesome solution. It’s a convenient carry pouch that holds your small personal items like cash, keys or makeup that converts into a full-size duffel bag. It’s two for the price of one that makes travel a tad bit easier with one less bag to haul around.


The Duffster folds in on itself to create a compact carry pouch that you can take with you anywhere when you’re not using it to store your clothes.


The duffel bag contains three zippered pockets for your bigger belongings and two exterior ones for smaller items like a water bottle. It also has a carabineer for you to hang things like your keys off of in a pinch. The Duffster also comes with a separate ditty bag for you to put your shoes or dirty clothes in to keep them separate from your clean ones. Nobody likes to mix clean shirts with sweaty underwear.


It’s made of durable, rip-stop polyester and, best of all, it’s eco-friendly. The bag currently retails for $45.

Visiting Madeira

When someone mentions travel to Portugal, they probably mean visiting Lisbon or Porto. Southwest of Portugal proper, however, is an autonomous Portuguese archipelago filled with great wine, beautiful botanical gardens and a wonderful climate.

Pastel de Nata in Portugal

While it’s unlikely you’d go all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, for just one dish, there’s certainly one bite you must have while you’re there: the egg tart. Pastel de nata (cream pastry) is a national obsession that has become a bucket-list bite for nearly every traveler to the country’s seaside capital. Fortunately for tourists, the city’s most iconic landmark, Belém Tower, is located just across the street and down the shoreline from the city’s undisputed powerhouse of pastel, Pastéis de Bélem. Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
