lighter load

It's not easy to pack over sized awkward items for a flight, esp a surfboard.
Check out the fantastic design of the inflatable Soma airbag, it's as cool as it looks!

blast from the past

I love the design of these old Swiss Air posters.
They take us back to a time when travel was perhaps a tad more romantic!

Treehouses, Tents and Ships

Who wouldn't want to spend some time among the tropical forest canopy in a tree house? How about drifting to sleep among the relaxing sounds of the outdoors in a lux canvas tent? Imagine drifting along a sleepy river in a houseboat made of bamboo poles, coconut fibre ropes furnished with richly woven carpets? Perhaps this all taps into our childhood fantasies of romantic, exotic travel. Either way I'm set to go!
Here are just a few:

-Tour India

-Canvas Chic

-El Capitan Canyon


Jeepers peepers!

National Geographic Traveler magazine's "peeps in places" is even more popular this year.
Chick it out!

the ultimate booking tool?

We are all a bit obsessed at finding the lowest airline ticket. Expedia, Travelocity, Kayak, Fly, the list goes on. However most of these search engines are powered by one piece of software, ITA.
You can go right to the source and find deals that others may leave behind. The catch is that you cannot book on direct on the site. You have to take the details to your travel agent. Jot down the airline, times, flight numbers. Sometimes a bit of extra legwork can really pay-off!
