Traveling intelligently, particularly for long stretches, comes down to balancing convenient travel with basic comforts. Proportioning these two aspects of travel can be a bit tricky. Love your makeup remover? Great. How much space will it take up in your bag? Don’t want to smell like a yeti in Nepal? Of course not, but keeping deodorant in your day bag is a pain. Fortunately, La Fresh’s Travel Lite Amenities combine a convenient, portable design with high quality formulas for cleaner, safer and less hobo-ish travel.


The Convenience

Travel Lite Amenities are single-use, eco-friendly wipes that address the grooming, hygiene, safety and health needs of on-the-go travelers. From makeup and nail polish remover, to insect repellant, to antiperspirant and hygiene wipes and more, Travel Lite Amenities offer a practical solution for jetsetters, day explorers and backpackers. The wipes are TSA-friendly and incredibly portable, so travelers no longer need to haul a dozen three-ounce travel containers when traveling. La Fresh’s travel wipes require little space, and your packed clothes aren’t in constant danger of spills.


The Comfort

La Fresh’s Travel Lite Amenities include a total of 12 types of wipes. Not only are the wipes convenient, La Fresh’s wipes have won numerous awards for their effectiveness, and the company is committed to creating high-quality, eco-friendly and safe formulas. For instance, the insect repellant wipes are non-toxic and contain no DEET, while the makeup remover wipes feature a moisturizing formula with vitamin E.


The Commitment

Committed to environmentally conscious manufacturing, the company’s packaging will soon be FSC certified, and the wipes will be compostable. In addition, the wipes require a tenth of the water required for similar bottled products — dramatically reducing water waste.


The Cost

La Fresh’s Travel Lite Amenities are available in a number of offerings to fit your specific needs. Costs vary depending on product, but typically three wipes costs $2.49, while packages of 48 wipes costs  $19.99. He and she-specific travel combo packs — featuring a variety of wipes — are also available for the savvy traveler, and combo packs also include a handy carry-on tote bag.

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Sleeping comes with difficulty for some travelers. Sleeping is a must when traveling, but especially for people with nausea, fear of flying, motion sickness, claustrophobia or anxiety. Sleeping helps some people cope better with the flight, too.  There are some sleep aids that can help people with whatever the issue is, while some need to be prescribed, others are over-the-counter drugs that one can get without hassle.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
