Take Me Away

Adam and I love to travel, whether a weekend getaway or a lengthy well-planned excursion. I’m always looking for the up-to-date travel guide. The New York Times 36 Hours column and books are great. I have the European and U.S. Only ones but there are more! This is a great way to savor a town or city when you have little time…36 hours! These suggestions are not the touristy must-sees, but the quirky and delightful shops, restaurants, etc. that might not be on our radar. Besides research, there are items on my wish list for future travel.

  • que: Collapsible Silicone Water Bottle


    The Grommet


    Drink from a full-fledged water bottle but collapse it down to half its size to transport. que’s flexible silicone has spiraled grooves that collapse and expand like an accordion. Its stainless steel rim and cap keeps an air-tight seal that prevents leakage. Slip it into a backpack or purse and hydrate anywhere.
