I certainly remember my first experience with this company was a hair-dryer I used to make myself look like either a member of Flock of Seagulls, Billy ldol or one of those idiots from Echo and The Bunnymen on a way to an 80s throwback party.


Either way, since then, Conair has branched out into compact and practical travel accessories and one of my favorites is this $25 folding cart that comes with a bungee cord (buy another) and comfortably deals with suitcases, backpacks and boxes up to 75 pounds by advertisement and warranty. I’m sure I’ve comfortably gotten double that on one of these without breaking it, but don’t blame me if you overload the suggested and aforementioned 75 pounds.


It takes up nearly no space as it folds to near flat and weighs less than 3 pounds. But what you can wheel around with it is truly impressive. It can help you move your luggage around on a single set of wheels just as well as it can help your friend move house in a pinch. Whether for travel or the knowledge you have one, your back will thank you the next time you need to move heavy boxes.

Under $100: Poble Nou, Barcelona

Just north of Barcelona’s bustling city center, the capital of Catalonia transitions from Gothic cathedrals, tiny alleyways and hordes of bike tours into a more livable neighborhood known as Poble Nou. Close to the coast, Metro-accessible and rife with local hang-out spots, this area has become a favorite of residents who seek solace from the masses of tourists that crowd the center.
