Take your sax show on the road with this tiny saxophone, which claims to be the smallest electronic instrument of its kind in the world.

Traditional brass saxophones are not known to be the most portable of instruments, with most people transporting them around in hefty cases. This can be a problem if you are often on the road but want to keep up with your practice.

The Travel Sax is super small and lightweight, so you can take it anywhere. It’s also Bluetooth- and USB-enabled, so you can connect to a smartphone or tablet to record yourself via compatible audio apps.

There is even an accompanying Travel Sax app which helps you learn the instrument as you go. It has been made to mimic brass saxophones in terms of key position and pressure, so you should have no trouble switching back and forth.

A rechargeable lithium battery offers up to six hours of non-stop playing, long enough for all but the most obsessive saxophone students. When you run out of juice, just recharge via USB.

If you are keen on recording, connect the Travel Sax to your PC or Mac and use it as a mini controller. It’s a great idea and one that caught fire on Kickstarter, rocketing past its funding goal.

You can buy one for $450 online.

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
