Cybersecurity is more important than ever for travelers in the digital age — you never know when your online data might be compromised. Firewalla Gold is the latest in the wave of next-gen that offers multi-gigabyte smart firewall protection to protect your digital devices.


Firewalla Gold is a router that includes network segmentation and 3+ Gbps speeds. It aids with intrusion prevention by placing firewalls around your connected devices and helps to block malicious websites and hacks. Other features include ad block, vulnerability scans, safe searches and GEO IP-filtering. It also offers behavior analytics and provides stats on your bandwidth usage. There’s also the Firewalla OpenVPN server to help protect your privacy when using public WiFi. Parents will love the controls that allow you to block social media in foreign places along with providing alerts to your kids’ activity while online.


Best of all, Firewalla offers localized language options for expats living around the world.


Firewalla Gold is still in the development stages, but first shipments are expected to begin this summer. It’s currently set to retail for $499, but you can snag a discount by supporting the fundraising campaign. Check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
