Long vacations mean extra packing, but bringing those extra bags can be a hassle. Many airports are starting to charge for luggage carts, and unless you planon dragging a suitcase on each arm, you like to keep your hands free as a traveler. Luckily, Train Reaction provides a solution with their luggage stabilizing device.


The Train Reaction is a plastic, ladder-like gadget that is an ingenious, low-tech way of lightening the load. Two rolling suitcases are linked together at the top, letting the bags link together like a train. When you tip your bag forward, the suitcase behind it will move in synchronization and rest on the first bag, distributing the weight in an efficient manner that feels much lighter than a luggage cart. Movement is smooth and natural, allowing you to move two suitcases easily with one hand, though sharp turning does requires a bit of care.


The product can be used with rolling suitcases of any size, and you can link bags of different sizes together, though the device works most efficiently by pairing luggage of similar proportions. The Train Reaction is made in the United States and comes in black and pink. You can learn more at

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
