I received a Men’s Slope Jacket for free from Orsden Inc. in consideration for a gear review. As if finding quality winter gear isn’t hard enough, finding something that’s suitable for a traveler adds an extra challenge. So even though Mike already had two winter jackets, he needed something that was multi-purpose and above all else: packable. The Orsden Inc Men’s Slope Jacket fit the bill.
There’s never been a better time to sign up for T-Mobile international roaming. Recently T-Mobile has expanded coverage to 140+ countries, included more high-speed data in the USA for the same price, and added in extras like Music Freedom, Binge On, Data Stash, and free Go-Go in-flight Wi-Fi for a better experience.

I already had international data and texting with T-Mobile, but
At some point or another, everyone travels to Florida, but not everyone does it the smart way. Convenience stores and hotel shops make a killing off of overpriced sunscreen when travelers forget their own. Pack the essentials, and don’t forget to be ready next time you visit the Sunshine State. In Lake Buena Vista, Don’t Forget Sneakers! If you think all you need is flip-flops
Siesta Key is a delight to the senses. From the moment I stepped onto the powdery sand, I knew this was not an ordinary beach. In fact, I was a little embarrassed to find out it was voted the #1 beach in America and I had never heard of it before — after all, I pride myself on staying on top of all things travel.
When you stay at a hotel for a week and have time to settle in, having an organized suitcase isn’t a huge issue. However, if you change hotels every night and won’t bother unpacking, knowing where everything is is a huge time-saver (and stress-saver). I’ve been using eBags packing cubes to organize my bag for vacation for two years now — and I’ll never go back
In a sea of a million people, it’s hard enough to keep track of who you’re traveling with, let alone your belongings. That’s why my heart sank when my sister tugged on my shoulder and said, “Hey Beck, I don’t think I have my travel wallet anymore.” To her credit, my sister had put her valuables on her person in a bra stash instead of mindlessly
