I’m exposed to a lot of travel products all the time. Some are awesome, some are not so great. This is where I’ll fill you in each week with what I think are the best travel products out there!
January 25, 2012: Uncommon Goods Scratch Map
Every traveler I know has a map with pins sticking out of the places they have been – I’m one of them. For those who want something unique and a more innovative way, check out this scratch-off-where-you’ve-been map ($24). It’s almost like getting a lottery ticket each time you travel because when you get home you get to scratch off the area(s). Might be perfect for kids too so they don’t poke their eyes out but you won’t this 32.2″ W x 22.9″ H map in my house. I’m more of a traditional kind of guy when it comes to this. Learn more here.
January 18, 2012: Cool Off
This week I was in two hot and humid places: Trinidad and Tobago and Singapore. I love being in warmer climates this time of year when it’s cold in so many places, but at times it can be uncomfortable. One way to cool off is by using a Cool Off mini towelette made with natural cooling herbs, moisturizing botanicals and essential oils. They renew, re-energize, and refresh anytime and come in a convenient travel-friendly packet. A pack of 24 can be found on Amazon.com for just $9.98. Learn more here.
