TSA Liquids Rule: Toiletry Travel Hacks

While I understand and appreciate why these restrictions have been put in place, it makes it hard for a girl to bring all of her favorite toiletries on a trip. Use the tips to maximize the space in your quart-sized bag and still comply with the TSA liquids rule. Squeeze Bottles – Use silicone travel bottles for the liquids you need the most of like shampoo, conditioner or sunscreen. Brands like Cetaphil, Neutrogena, and Aveeno make face cleansing wipes which means you wo

Did you know that @norwegiancruiseline has their own private island in the Bahamas 🌴? If you want to get away from it all while you are getting away from it all, take it to the next level and book a private air conditioned villa at Silver Cove on Great Stirrup Cay. You will have access to this gorgeous uncrowded beach, a full service spa, the Moët Champagne bar and exclusive lagoon-side restaurant.

Schooner J & E Riggin: A Culinary Cruise

As you rise to greet the day on the Schooner J & E Riggin you will smell freshly brewed Riggin Blend coffee waiting for you on deck. My absolute favorite meal Chef Annie serves is the Vietnamese style bowls with fresh vegetables, kimchi, harvest slaw, gochujang sauce, and noodles. As you can tell, you won’t ever go hungry on this Maine windjammer cruise and luckily Chef Annie has written three cookbooks, Home at Sea and The Sugar & Salt series, so you can recreate the delicious recipes she makes on the Schooner J & E Riggin at home.

What to Pack for a Cruise - Expert Tips

Expert Packing Tips for Your Next Cruise Packing for a cruise requires thought and proper planning. Use these essential cruise packing tips to help you bring the right things on your next voyage. I use compression packing cubes to make clothes lay as flat as possible to pack in my one suitcase. I also use Stitch Fix, a professional online styling service, several times a year to help me build out staple pieces of my travel wardrobe.

Digital Detox: Unplugged Travel Ideas

And we all know friends and family love seeing how great your vacation is in real-time, but while you are constantly busy snapping and sharing photos you’ll end up missing the best moments of your trip. While you can find free Wi-Fi at the one coffee shop in the main town of Governor’s Harbor, you’ll find you’d rather spend your days unwinding on the uninhabited beaches. During the winter, vacationers spend their days downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, or cross country skiing on hundreds of miles of snowy terrain. The Green Mountain State also has plenty of off-the-grid places to stay like Knight Island State Park or rental homes that will force you to be tech-free on your next vacation.

Happy christening day @norwegiancruiseline #norwegianencore

If you know me, you know that I love to travel. You also know my husband and I love @U2. We combine our passion for the band with our love of travel and have seen them all over the world. We have just spent two weeks in New Zealand and Australia and were able to see five shows in four different cities. Wherever we go we meet other fans that share the same mutual love to travel and see the band. We have made lifelong friends on this musical journey. Do you have a passion that you combine with your travels?
