Case for Making 8 Color Travel Set

Appease Your Inner Artist with Case for Making 8 Color Watercolor Travel Set

By Jill | December 16, 2022

Everyone has their own skill. My mom’s the artist. I’m the word nerd. But lately, I’ve become fascinated with replicating hues on my travels. I don’t need to make images—just staring at the sunset and trying to find the same colors in a box of watercolor paint makes me happy.   When I discovered the…

Dry Off with Nomadix Original Towel

By Jill | December 9, 2022

When you’re traveling, whether it’s on an adventure or a chill beach vacation, having a towel on hand is ideal. You’ll want to dry off after swimming, showering, and even hiking—and you won’t always be somewhere with towel service. Better yet, when you carry a travel towel along, you don’t have to worry about packing…


Sip Safely with LifeStraw Peak Series Straw

By Jill | December 2, 2022

Water filters aren’t only for backpacking or developing countries. Any time you purchase a single-use water bottle on your travels, it’s an opportunity to use a water filter instead.   I know what you’re thinking: Water filters are hard to use. That may have been true in the early days of consumer water filters, but…

See Clearly on the Water with Costa Reefton Pro Sunglasses

By Jill | October 28, 2022

I like my eyes, so I like to keep them protected. That’s why I wear sunglasses when I’m outside (I’ve got a pair in my bag, in my car, and on the entryway table). But not just any sunglasses. Because I’m on the water a lot, I prefer sunglasses with polarized lenses.   The classic…

Drink Wine Safely with Govino Stemless Wine Glasses

By Jill | October 21, 2022

Drinking wine, beer, and cocktails while traveling often results in using glasses you ordinarily wouldn’t at home. Whether you swig out of the bottle on the trail, out of a red plastic cup at the campsite, or out of a can in the parking lot—presentation takes a few steps backwards when you don’t want to…

It’s always a refreshing change to spend time off the grid—where the temptations of digital life can be left behind and you can reconnect with real life. But there’s no shame when you just can’t do it. There are valid needs for having access to a power source, whether for safety or comfort.   The…

Pack Your Meals in Snow Peak Tobachi 2

By Jill | September 23, 2022

It’s a never-ending challenge to avoid single-use, disposable food packaging when camping or generally enjoying yourself in the outdoors. When you’re grabbing food from stores on the go, much of it already comes in packaging, so you either have to be diligent about shopping in places where you can use your own containers, or disposing…

Juniper Ridge Botanical Tea

Taste Nature with Juniper Ridge Botanical Teas

By Jill | August 12, 2022

It’s true that the terroir of a place—the environmental conditions, especially soil and climate—influences grapes grown for winemaking, as well as any food or drink ingredient. The taste of a place is often what helps us understand that destination more deeply, beyond the top things to do or buy, when we visit. It’s also often…

Thousand Traveler Magnetic Bike Lights

Light Your Way with Thousand Traveler Magnetic Bike Lights

By Jill | August 5, 2022

One of the things I always pack on a trip is a bike light. Even if I’m not traveling for a specific cycling trip, I may end up renting a bike, and lights aren’t often included. Sure, I could bike around in the early morning and late evening without a light, but why tempt fate…
