It’s no secret traveling comes with its fair share of germs. Everything from the airport bathroom to the airplane tray table is full of bacteria, whether or notyou want to think about it. Now, you can protect yourself in a fashionable way — with a Scough!


Scough, which sounds like a combination of the word “scarf” and “cough,” protects you against the cold and bacteria. The scarf wraps around your neck and face, providing a barrier between you and the airborne germs and pollution in your environment.


Each Scough product comes with a carbon filter that keeps ickiness away from your face. The carbon filter lasts up to three months, and replacements can be bought on the Scough website for $17 a piece.


Depending on which Scough product you want, you can spend anywhere from $49 on a checkered flannel scarf to $29 on a paisley bandana for the utmost protection. Scough, which originates from Brooklyn, has a wide variety of options to choose from on its website. Its products are for both men and women, meaning anyone can enjoy a Scough, and it makes a perfect gift. In addition, Scough ships globally through its Etsy store for the utmost convenience.


Of course, there’s no guarantee you won’t catch a cold while you’re wearing a Scough, but it doesn’t hurt to boost your protection, right?

Visiting the Alamo

The Alamo was a place occupied by Spanish settlers, and an important part of the early stages of Texas’s war for independence from Mexico. The Spanish settlers established a military and prepared for a fight. During the early stages of the war, a group of Texan soldiers ambushed and took over the Alamo from the Mexican military and gained control of San Antonio. Shortly after, the Mexican military gained control once again. The Battle of The Alamo went on for years and eventually ended with the Texans winning.

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.
