Going somewhere? This summer feels like one big mass exit to me. Nearly everyone I know has some sort of travel plan. Even my own children high-tailed it out of here for a little respite. Can’t say I blame them but I’m starting to feel a bit lonely. Understandably, we all have felt a little cooped up since the pandemic and this is the first summer where we are finally allowed to travel.
Unfortunately, we mustn’t let our guard down too much otherwise we will be hearing the word “staycation” a lot more. Be safe everyone and happy travels. ✈️
This week I’ll share some of my favorite travel essentials, along with recommendations from my fellow backpackers and jet setters.
Getaway Travel Pillow $24
Say goodbye to neck cramps and the dreaded wobble head. This cheerful travel companion makes it easier to rest in less than ideal sleeping conditions. The attached drawings make it easier to keep track of by tying it to your carry-on luggage or any other bag. bando.com
Anti-Theft Classic Backpack $85
Made from military-grade material, making this bag is extremely tough and slash-resistant. Hidden compartments with locking clips. Also, water and dirt resistant. But what makes this backpack anti-theft you ask? RFID blocking technology. Which stands for radio frequency identification. This protects you from hackers and thieves from gathering any of your personal information. Pretty cool if you ask me. 😎travelonbags.com

9to5: The Story Of A Movement Netflix 7/22/21
Let me start by saying if you haven’t seen the iconic 1980 film with Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Thomlin yet, run to your nearest streaming device and watch it already! If you are like me? Then you know how excited I am to watch this. Beginning Thursday 7/22/21, Netflix will be airing the documentary that inspired the 80’s classic film along with the hit song written and performed by Dolly Parton.
In Boston early 1970s a group of secretaries decided they had suffered in silence long enough. They began a movement to force changes in their workplace. With a call for better pay, more opportunities and to put an end to sexual harassment. Sadly, what became National and should be an important part of U.S history, has mostly been forgotten. The stories of these bold courageous women resonate to this day.
We are all still fighting for the same things and in my mind, it really hasn’t changed all that much. Please watch. I can only hope this will inspire a new generation of fighters because we still have a long way to go. 😔
