TripIt Will Now Tell You The Safety Level Of Your Travel Location

I’ve used TripIt as my “go to” website to organize my travel plans for the better part of a decade. Their system to take a series of emails and make a single trip itinerary made my travel planning so much easier. I no longer had to worry about having the email from my airline, rental car, hotel, restaurant, theater tickets and public transit maps organized before my trip because they did it all for me.

I was very interested when I recently received an email telling me about a new feature in the Tripit mobile apps.

Are Food Delivery Apps The Final Nail In The Coffin For Hotel Room Service?

I recently saw a link to an article on Conde Nast Traveler’s website that drew my attention: How Grubhub, Uber Eats, and Other Meal-Delivery Apps are Killing Hotel Room ServiceThis made me think of the all times I’ve ordered room service at a hotel. We usually had spent a long day traveling or sightseeing and the last thing we wanted to do was wander around a strange city to find a place to eat. So being comfortable in our room and getting food delivery sounded great.

Road Tripping? Learn What’s To See Along The Way!

Last year I wrote about all the ways you could find out what’s at the next exit when you’re doing a road trip – rest stops, bathrooms, hotels, campgrounds, restaurants, etc. And ALL of those things are important to know ahead of time. But another nice thing to know is what’s on all those miles between Point A and Point B. Maybe you want a place to spent a couple of hours to break your driving day up. Maybe you’re into cheesy, kitschy tourist stops like I am and want to know what you’ll pass on the way.

So in case you’re planning to travel and want a better idea of what weather you may encounter, read on…
