What’s New For Spring Break and Summer Travel?


Marilyn Jones 

Like every travel writer, I spend a lot of time planning my adventures. Right now I am planning a trip to Egypt in April, and a marathon 3,500-mile solo road trip in May and June. Along with my planning comes the desire to have the right “accessories” for every situation.  

Road Trip

In addition to plenty of audio books to make the miles sail by, I’ll be taking along a cooler for Diet Coke and snacks. I’ve tried several over the years and one I really like is eBags Crew Cooler II


Originally designed for flight attendants and pilots, this little cooler has all the bells and whistles you need in a compact design. A few features include a top "dry" compartment perfect for non-perishables, a zippered mesh pocket in the lid to keep napkins and other small items in place and, of course, a “cold" compartment that is completely insulated. An elasticized mesh pocket against the body is great for packets of mayo, mustard, etc. plus there is a zippered mesh pocket against the front — a perfect place for silverware. On the sides of the cooler are special pouch-pocket water bottle carriers. In addition to handles and a removable shoulder strap, it has rear pass-thru pocket for stacking on top of your suitcase, which I love for taking it into hotels with me.
