Happy Friday! Can you believe June is almost over? It seems like it was just June 1st and now it’s the 21st. How’d that happen? Maybe I’ve been having so much fun planning my trip to Vegas that the time just slipped by. Somehow, I don’t think that’s all of it, but that just means it’s time for me to show you the fun stuff I found over the last few weeks.
Have you ever bought luggage at the airport? Seems a bit odd, right? It’s no secret that I love to shop at the airport, but I’ve yet to buy a bag of any kind while there. I did once by a carry-on while in my last days of vacation in order to bring goodies back from Europe, but even when my wheel broke on a bag, I just suffered until I got home and replaced it after some comparison shopping. So, if you also wonder who buys luggage at the airport, Harriet Baskas from Stuck At The Airport has an enlightening article about it.
Do you hate it when you have a nice manicure or pedicure on your vacation and two days in you chip it? I know this irritates me all the time. I either take a bottle with me of matching polish or just go au natural. This new pen can help you fix your chippy nails and also save space in your 3-1-1 bag. LAQA & CO. knows that we like to keep our fingers and toes looking great no matter where we are. You can also slip it into your purse when not traveling.

Sitting on the airplane can make you all stiff and cranky. You can’t very well get up and do jumping jacks, and even if you could, you probably wouldn’t, because it’s weird, right? It’s a good idea to stretch and move around when on flights, long or short. You don’t want to annoy your neighbors or make people stare at you though, so why not try these suggestions from Smarter Travel for in-flight exercises that aren’t totally embarrassing.
Almost everyone loves the beach. If you are taking a trip to Europe this year and think that all the beaches you know about will be bursting with sunbathers, you’re probably right. That’s why you need to find a lonely stretch of sand to call your own. Travel + Leisure brings you Europe’s Secret Beaches, which may not be a secret for much longer now that they’ve let the cat out of the bag, so pack your suit and sunscreen and plan a few days near the water and soaking up the rays.
If you have been sad that you have to go all the way to Orlando to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you can now look forward to a cheaper trip (for us West Coasters) when it opens at Universal Studios Hollywood at some future undetermined date.
Are you a vegan traveler and have problems finding places to eat when you go on a trip? Chicago Tribune brings you the top 10 most vegan-friendly cities. Surprise! Portland is on this list, but actual surprises are Las Vegas and Austin, Texas.
Summer weather isn’t always sunny and hot. And sometimes it’s too sunny and too hot. For unpredictable summers, take a trip to one of the 10 best indoor water parks brought to you by Tripomatic. Personally, I have Germany’s Tropical Islands on my list, because it looks super cool.
As always, I hope you enjoyed some of these posts I've found. If you've found anything fun that's travel-related, feel free to share in the comments.
