The sleek, cozy design of the STM Haven Bag makes it the perfect companion for the ardent traveler. It’s designed specifically to provide protection for your valuables, including laptops, phones and iPads, as well as to be worn comfortably no matter where you go.
It comes equipped with STM’s proprietary cable routing system, allowing you to easily store your cords and devices in such a way you can plug them in and charge them without removing them from the pack. The Haven Bag contains compartments for your laptop and tablet with a padded buffer underneath so they won’t rest against the bottom of the bag. If you drop it on accident, you won’t have to worry about causing a dent.
The back panel is made of 3D foam that helps it conform to your body for a snug fit while the soft mesh and air channels allow for extra ventilation. This is great for keeping cool in warmer climates.
The bag is also water resistant, lightweight and even has a nifty sleeve for storing any paperwork like travel documents and passports. The adjustable sternum strap makes carrying it easier on your body while the stretchable bottle pocket is perfect for those who like to take their bag on a long hike.
The Haven Bag retails on Amazon for $99.95.
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?
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
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.
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.
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.
