Move over life, its planning time

It's seems like such a long time since I have been on a trip, when in reality I went to LA last month. There are so many places we can travel to, does anyone else find it hard to pick a destination? Alas, despite the difficulties we have our travel plans for the year (so far). Here is our travel destinations for 2015:

February: Orlando
March: Wilmington, NC
May: Bahamas
June: Des Moines, IA
September: Peru-Machu Picchu       
October: Des Moines, IA                                          
November: Belize & Mexico

My may trip will be a family trip that I'm really looking forward to. I was the only traveler in my family and my brother and parents have followed suit. My parents are even branching out and traveling to St. Croix by themselves in April. Yay for family travels!

 I'm especially looking forward to my trip to Chicago. It's a city I have always wanted to explore and now I'm going to. Making it even better is the fact that my best friend from high school will be meeting me there!!

I love mountains! I could live in the mountains. Ashville is such a great destination, with a lot to offer. I love outdoor activities and Ashville has it all. From the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking, horseback riding, ziplining, white water rafting, national parks, and a great night life.

I look forward to bringing all the advice and tips back that I can for all my readers. Where are you looking at visiting in 2015?

Belkin Mini Travel Surge Protector

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! In my last post I gathered items that would make great Christmas gifts for the traveler in your life. I asked for some of those items for myself, because they are so great. I did receive some of the gadgets I asked for and some unique ones for my travel. In this post I will be reviewing the Belkin Mini Travel Surge protector. You can buy it here:

Quite honestly I love this item! We had our family Christmas early as we were leaving for California and would be there over Christmas. This mini surge protector is lightweight, small and compact. It has three plug ins and two usb ports. It has a swivel plug in, making this item more versatile for you. It takes up a very small space in your suitcase or carry on. I used my Belkin Mini Surge Protector to charge all of my electronics while we were in Los Angeles. It is wide enough that I was able to set my iphone on top of it while it was charging. This is great in case it's plugged in where there isn't a table, bed or nightstand available. I think this is a great item for any traveler to add to their gadgets, and it can fit into everyone's budget. This item costs $11.88 on!
