I've traveled a lot in my life, and stayed at hotels both nice and terrible, and they all manage to have one thing in common: terrible hairdryers.
Even the nicest hotels, which will equip rooms with high quality razors for men, and even god dang shoe polish, will still have a hair dryer that clearly was no more than $5 and burns out within one usage.
Now, I would LOVE to be able to bring my own hair dryer, but I don't often have the luxury of fitting something so big in my suitcase. But what hotels provide in terms of hair dryers proves to me there is not one woman at the hotel board meeting. And if there is — what is she doing?!
This is the hill that I die on.
If you put your seat back on a plane on ANY ride shorter than 4 hours, you are a monster.
Putting your seat back not only punishes the tall, but punishes the back row of the plane that physically cannot push their own seat back. If we all just agree to sit with our seat forward for the duration of the short flight (again: I qualify that this is shorter than 4 hours), we will all be happier.
Also, whoever decided to put touch-screen games on the back of the seat deserves capital punishment.
I'm out and about living my life and thriving. I've never been to SD before though! If you have specific recs of the best food you've eaten, places you checked out, stuff you did, please let me know!
So I am in New Mexico for a trip. And bare with me. I am going to say something that might be CRINGEY but hear me out.
It’s actually insane how big the US is and how different each region really is. Like it’s crazy to me that where there are volcanos and cacti, is in the same country as Detroit.
I don’t know, maybe it’s the altitude but 🤯🤯🤯
I have a trip planned in a couple weeks, and I have only taken a couple flights since the pandemic started. Which means… I’m gonna get the flying jitters.
Have you ever gotten over a fear of flying? And if so, how did you do it?
I haven't been on a plane since November 2019, and all I can think about right now is a little bag of pretzels, and a can of tomato juice, WITH ICE. That's my tried and true plane snack order -- salty, refreshing, satisfying. And you feel retro and chic ordering it, like a real traveler who knows what's up. Pretty sure it's what Peggy from Madmen would've ordered, and for those reasons, I'm in.
I'm going away this weekend for the first time in years and years and years! I am so excited about it! I am new to traveling - I can count on one hand how many states I've been to and have never been on an airplane lol. So, I was just wondering, where are your favorite places to visit in the US? Whether, it's a city, a place, a park, or just a whole state, let me know where and why, so I can expand my list!
I'm taking a quick weekend trip to visit some family in Austin this weekend and I'll probably want to take some time to break free and explore the city a bit. I haven't been since pre-pandemic and with everyone moving there over the past two years, I'm curious if anyone has any recommendations?
I'm sure there's a ton of new restaurants, bars and things to do. So if you've been, let me know! THX!
My husband and I just got our passports, and while we're super excited to travel internationally there are so many places we want to go, I don't know where we should go first! We're thinking of visiting everywhere from Costa Rica to Iceland, so as long as it's a 4-5 hour flight from the east coast (helloooo travel anxiety) we'd be open to it. So tell me, where is your first passport stamp from?
