The most anxiety-inducing part of traveling somewhere you need to pack heavy is the brief moment between zipping up your luggage for the final time and lifting it.
If you are traveling for an extended period of time or to somewhere with exceptionally cold weather, your luggage can start to get heavy pretty quickly. Most airlines have a limit on how heavy a single piece of checked luggage can be before requiring an extra fee. If you are like me before discovering this scale, you would weigh yourself on a bathroom scale with and without your luggage to make sure it was acceptable, but not anymore.
The Etekcity Digital Luggage Scale lets travelers weigh luggage easily and reliably. The scale has an upper weight limit of 110 pounds and is built with solid construction and durability in mind. The scale is small in size, making it an easy addition to your luggage without tipping it over the edge itself. The scale also includes a thermostat to make sure any temperature-sensitive pieces of luggage are safe during transit.
In addition to being handy, the Etekcity is simple to use with an easy-to-read display with overload and low battery warnings. The scale is also covered by a one-year warranty.
South Philadelphia is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods — with attitude to boot. The foodie, Italian neighborhood continues to rise through the ranks as one of the city’s longest-lasting, cuisine-centric locales, but with a lot of new blood moving in.
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.
