Travel Product of the Week: togoPower


I just got a new iPhone 6 Plus and I love it. The one thing I don’t like about it so far is that the battery drains a lot quicker than the batteries on my Android and Windows phones. For that reason, I now need to carry a portable charger with me to make sure I […]

Travel Product of the Week: Ice Mule Cooler

Ice Mule Coolers

Spring Break is just around the corner (and summer’s not that far off, either) so I’m sure/I hope you’ll soon be heading out somewhere warm. Well, when it’s warm, you’ll probably need to keep your drinks or food cold—which is what the new Ice Mule Cooler is built to do. It supposedly keeps ice frozen for […]

Travel Product of the Week: Monster Travel Power Strip

Power strip

On the recommendation of my colleague Gary Leff, I now carry a Monster MP OTG400 BK Outlets To Go Power Strip. Why? Hotels, airports and especially cruises often only have one or two outlets, and that’s just not enough to charge all of my devices. And if my wife is with me, “Fuhgeddaboudit,” since she always has three devices […]

A couple weeks ago I attended the Delray Sands Resort opening party and to my surprise they had a departing gift bag with a really cool neck pillow inside. It was made by Essentia, the makers of the only natural memory foam in the world who, in addition to making comfortable mattresses, have now added custom […]

Travel Product of the Week: Satechi USB Portable Humidifier


The Satechi USB Portable Humidifier is a clever invention that can help relieve dry, stuffy air when you travel. This portable humidifier by Satechi adds moisture to the air in the immediate area with only a bottle of water needed. It secures onto most water bottles to prevent leaks and spills. You can even use it with cold […]

Travel Product of the Week: Wallaroo Hats

Hat for product

Last month I wrote in my weekly newsletter about how I was touched by the executives at Tilley Endurables for sending me a hat after they read that I had developed squamous cell carcinoma on my lower lip. Well, it turns out they weren’t the only company to send me a hat. In fact, Wallaroo […]

Travel Product of the Week: SteriPEN Ultra

If you’re a hardcore traveler or hiker—or merely going camping for the weekend—you’ll be sure to want a new SteriPEN Ultra water purifying system. It’s proven to be safe and effective as it eliminates over 99.9% of the bacteria, viruses and protozoa that cause water-borne illness. It purifies 16 ounces of water (cold or warm) in less […]
