Once upon a time your suitcase had one function: to carry your belongings from home to your destination and back again. As technology advances, so do the functions of our everyday items as well, and luggage is no exception.

Today’s carry-on bags and suitcases have a whole host of features luggage never had in the past. Suitcases have been designed with GPS to make our lost luggage easy to locate and battery-operated locks that connect to Bluetooth devices.

Unfortunately, technology sometimes gets a little bit ahead of itself, resulting in last year’s ban on smart luggage using certain types of batteries which could pose a serious safety threat under certain conditions.

Genius Pack sets itself apart from the smart luggage controversy with smart, functional bags that provide travelers with a host of conveniences.

The High Altitude Flight Bag, available online from Genius Pack for $88 (currently on sale for $68), doesn’t just carry your belongings on the plane and slip under the seat in front of you. It slips onto the seat in front of you. The straps fit snuggly onto your upright tray table, giving you convenient access to your belongings throughout your flight.

The bag is designed to expertly organize your belongings, such as your passport, travel documents, phone and more. It also has a portable mobile charger for your smartphone and a port for your earbuds to connect to devices inside your bag for easy listening.

Netflix Shows You Can’t Watch in the United States

Netflix has always been stingy when it comes to content. License agreements prevent it from showing its entire catalogue here in the United States. That just means you get new options when you travel overseas. Check out these great shows next time you’re out of the country.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
