Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
If you’ve ever used or considered using Airbnb, these are not the headlines you want to see:

So what’s up with that???
I was just digging around in the darker corners of my hard drive and found copies of my packing lists from 2003 and 2005. I still use a version of this list to help me pack for trips even today, but it’s been updated significantly in the last 12-15 years.
I thought it would be enlightening to look back and see what items we felt were “travel necessities” back in the early 2000s. All that I ask is that you don’t judge me too harshly on this list (Note from Sharon…TOO LATE! I’m judging the fact that you travel a minimum of 6 times per year and STILL USE A FLIPPIN’ PACKING LIST….)
