As the results of winter storm Stella melt away, we’re turning our thoughts to the sun. To celebrate the winter season coming to a close, we created a list of the best warm-weather destinations around the world to visit in the early spring, from France and Portugal to Puerto Rico and New Orleans.

Summer trips are fraught with concerns about how to keep beverages cold without having to invest in plastic bags of ice or countless ice packs. But what about winter daytrips when you want to keep liquids (like hot chocolate) warm? Wagan solves this problem with an all-in-one cooler/warmer that can be powered and charged in your car.


Wagan’s 14-liter-capacity cooler/warmer is spacious enough for up to 12 soda or beer cans, as well as refrigerated snacks like cheese, yogurt or fruit. The interior measures 12 by 8.25 by 5.5 inches while the exterior measures 19 by 10.25 by 12 inches, weighing in at 8.7 pounds.


Plug the cooler/warmer into your 12-volt DC socket in your car to power up the device and re-charge it when the battery has died. To turn it on, select the cooling mode or heating mode: The cooling mode cools down the interior to between 32 and 36 degrees Fahrenheit, while the heater mode warms up items to a maximum of 140 degrees Fahrenheit.


Wagan’s products are also environmentally friendly as they lack CFCs and refrigerants that can leak out into the environment. Travelers won’t need to purchase endless bags of ice as the cooler keeps items cool without external elements.


Wagan’s heater/cooler can be purchased on Wagan’s website or on Amazon.com for varying prices (from $76.99 to $119.95) and makes for the ideal travel companion for road trips.

Island Hopping in Tahiti

Nestled in the South Pacific, right about where you might expect to find Skull Island, is French Polynesia and Tahiti. Tahiti was also made into a meme with the recent release of Red Dead Redemption II, as the main characters work tirelessly to make it to the carefree islands.
