Eagle Creek Packing Cubes
Stop having an unorganized suitcase and wrinkled clothes when you show up at your destination! If you travel for work or you love your items neatly organized so you can maximize the space in your suitcase or backpack, these Eagle Creek Packing Cubes are for you! People ask how we fit so much into our backpacks….these packing cubes are the reason!
I first read about tactical pens in the book Spy Secrets that can Save Your Life as we were preparing for our travels. Even though most of the cities we are visiting are extremely safe, we always have our Tactical Pens on us. I like this style of the pen because it fits nicely in my pocket. The ink has run out but it is more for protection at this point than writing.
You have to plug in your electronics as you travel the world and other countries don’t have the same receivers as the United States. This is the BEST ADAPTER that we have found on the market. Not only does it have a great design for easy packing, it is strong and reliable. Don’t get stuck with a broken adapter! SKROSS is an award-winning company that puts out beautiful designs and well-made products.
RFID Blocking Sleeves
You have to know that there are criminals everywhere trying to steal your data and credit card information (we talk about an encounter with a hacker in Santiago, Chile in this podcast episode). If you are not using an RFID Blocking Sleeve on your credit cards, you are risking the possibility you will be hacked. It has happened to us several times BEFORE we got these RFID Blocking Sleeves that keep our credit cards safe as we travel.

Something Like Happy by Eva Woods – “A special book that will make you laugh through your tears with its heartfelt take on happiness and friendship.” One hundred days and one hundred new ways to be happy. This book is all about living in the now and finding anything, that makes you happy. This book is a great reminder that happiness comes to us in ordinary moments and we risk missing out on life when we get too busy chasing the extraordinary.
Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Cal Newport – “One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. If you master this skill, you’ll achieve extraordinary results.” If you struggle to focus on important tasks, this book will change the way you look at productivity.
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi – At 36, a young neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi, was diagnosed with Stage IV, terminal lung cancer. This memoir attempts to answer the questions, “What makes life worth living?” “How will we live our lives?” I think these questions are so very important and we must ask ourselves these two questions daily. None of us know how much time we have here on earth, but what you choose to do with the time you have should be meaningful.
Will Power Doesn’t Work – Benjamin Hardy – We rely on willpower to create change in our lives…but what if we’re thinking about it all wrong? In Willpower Doesn’t Work, Benjamin Hardy explains that willpower is nothing more than a dangerous fad-one that is bound to lead to failure. Instead of “white-knuckling” your way to change, you need to instead alter your surroundings to support your goals. This book shows you how.
