Internet connectivity and the ability to plug in nearly everywhere can sometimes make us forget that there are places in the world that are truly off the grid. While I’m all for the idea of ditching the digital and enjoying outdoors, when it comes to the reality of doing it for a number of days…

Keep Meals Fresh with Yeti Daytrip Lunch Bag

By Jill / August 2, 2019 / 0 Comments

You don’t have to be an office-goer to care about packing a lunch. Whether you’re hitting the trail or the airport, there are plenty of reasons to pack your own meal, and nobody needs soggy sandwiches and lukewarm beverages smashed in a paper bag. Lately, I’ve been packing my on-the-road meals in a Yeti Daytrip…

Up Your Beach Game with Carve Designs Clothing for Women

By Jill / July 26, 2019 / 0 Comments

Even if you think you have your summer clothing game handled, it’s always a great time to augment your warm-weather wardrobe when there’s plenty of product to be had and the puffy jackets of winter aren’t yet on display in stores. Besides, for travelers, there’s always a destination that has summery weather even when your…

Store It in a Stasher Reusable Silicone Bag

By Jill / July 19, 2019 / 1 Comment

One of my least-favorite things about travel is our reliance on plastic bags. We’re expected to use them for carry-on liquids. We stash snacks, laundry, wet swimsuits, groceries, and even charging cables in them. And then, one day (sooner than we’d prefer), they get holes in them and we throw them away. And now, I…

Light the Way with Coast HX4 Cliplight

By Jill / July 12, 2019 / 0 Comments

I’m a huge fan of the hands-free nature of headlamps, but the challenge with them arises when you need light, but don’t want to have the beacon on your head. But the alternative isn’t always a hand-held flashlight. I’ve become a fan of the Coast HX4 Cliplight, which I can clip onto the bill of…

By Jill / July 5, 2019 / 0 Comments

Even though we often need to find clothing items that perform well in a variety of conditions to save packing space, it’s hard to beat a soft fleece jacket for warmth and comfort. I haven’t had a go-to fleece in a while, but my current favorite is the Cotopaxi Cubre Full-Zip Fleece Jacket. Made with…

Casual Comfort With Mollusk Beach Pants

By Jill / June 28, 2019 / 0 Comments

Surfers know a little something about comfort. And when you’re traveling, comfort often means more than it does at home, because you’re constantly between tiny airplane seats, weird hotel beds, hauling bags, and generally in situations your body may not be used to in your day-to-day life. Since I live in a beach town, it’s…

Rugged Style With REI Co-op Women’s Trailsmith Pants

By Jill / June 14, 2019 / 0 Comments

There’s a place for lightweight hiking pants and there’s a place for more rugged-style work pants that are great for hiking, working outdoors, and even hitting the bar when it’s all over. Both are great when you need them, and lately, I’ve required a lot of the latter. That’s why I took my REI Co-op…

Head Out on the Water With Costa Waterwoman Sunglasses

By Jill / June 7, 2019 / 0 Comments

Stylish sunglasses can look cool, but what happens when you need performance, too? Not all shades are great for adventure, as they can lack polarized lenses and sturdiness to accompany you through land and water excursions. But even when women find those badass sunglasses, they’re often styled for dudes and can have too large a…

It’s always nice to have your tunes along when you travel. Whether you prefer sorting by genre or playlist, listen to entire albums in chronological order, or are lured to the storytelling of podcasts, our audio choices often enhance our journey. I’ve taken the Ultimate Ears Megablast speaker along on my recent road trips, and…
