Pinterest is an online pin board where users can pin anything that interests them onto their board for safekeeping. There are millions of users from across the globe that rave about Pinterest. In fact, anyone reading this article is probably already familiar with the phenomenon. Pinterest is a great way to keep track of ideas or concepts that might want to be revisited later. This helps keep travel plans organized, visible and inspirational. The pins will stay as long as you keep the information pinned so it won’t matter how much time has passed.

 

The pins help organize trips by destination or whether the trip is practical or not. Dream trips to faraway lands are less practical than the road trip being planned in a home country. However, these dream trips will be revisited one day in the future; until then, it’s best to have them organized in an accessible area.

 

The pins keep the dreams visible and alive. The old saying “out of sight, out of mind” is relatable to the situation with Pinterest. Before the app, there was no need to be micromanaged by a person or company. Yet, with new technology rising, it’s best to keep ideas on the forefront of your mind so there isn’t a chance of forgetfulness.

 

The app is easy to download and easy to navigate for those not handy with technology. In addition, this makes it easy for travelers to use while on the go.

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?

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

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.

Museums in Italy

While there are about as many museums in Italy as pieces of art, there are more than a few you should add to your must-see list ahead of your next (or first!) trip. Work your way through the country’s rich history in the arts with this list of suggestions.
