Do you remember when traveling was just for relaxation? For a business trip, it was your briefcase with your presentation for a new client? Getting to your hotel room, relaxing, and maybe going for a walk around the town for relaxation?

But now…
Travel Gadgets- Electronics and accessories for the business and leisure travelers. From computers, cell phones, PDA’s, chargers, and portable travel exercise apparatuses we have to ask ourselves where the line is drawn to separate business from leisure. When I notice someone talking on their cell phone, while clicking away on their laptop, with their 5 other new devices I cannot help but think that even James Bond would be jealous. 007 himself didn’t even have the up-to-date equipment that I see some people, 15 years my junior using.

Check out these two links and see how far we have really traveled with our must haves.

Have a comfortable travel experience!

fearless-14I know that I normally write blog entries about traveling and places to see, but with the rain this weekend, I thought I would spend some quality time in with a good book in hand. So, because I love the book that I picked up so much, I’ve decided to share some of just what I love about the characters and the story itself with you. Maybe after reading this, you will decide to take a well deserved trip to the couch and curl up with your favorite book!

I have to admit that I am a Stephanie Plum follower. I am looking forward this weekend and finally being able to read Plum’s new addition, Fearless 14.

Janet Evanovich (author), has fulfilled all of my “if I could” dreams. Upside-down pineapple cake with lots of whipped cream (stop eating it for 2 days and the fat hanging over my jeans is gone!), a tuna or peanut butter and olive sandwich (no stomach ache), having 2 sexy men in my life, and the perfect non-complaining roommate, Rex, the hamster.

Stephanie’s friend and side-kick Lula demonstrates the meaning of a positive woman in action. Even though Lula is about 5’4, weighing in at about 250 pounds, She loves wearing thongs and super bright clothes that are too tight.  However, there is a sweetie by the name of Tank that loves her the way she is. A man that did not worry about her past.

Joe Morelli has poor eating habits like Stephanie but he is super good looking.

Ranger is totally about healthy food and exercising. Because he is also so super handsome he won’t be boring. Plum fans always hear about the shower jell that Ranger uses and we have to ask ourselves, “Does Bulgari shower gel really exist, what type does Ranger use and where can I find it?”

Well, the answer is, “Yes, it really exists!!” Ranger uses Green Tea  Shower Gel, a unisex show gel, and you should be able to find it in any department store’s (Macy’s, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, etc.) fragrance or beauty section.

Evanovich’s books to me are just full of fun. Full of laughter with all of the familiar characters that always present themselves in the Plum novels. In a previous Plum novel Tank’s real first name was given. Why not tell the world by putting it in TWDHF’s comment section.

Have a great travel experience!!
