I am now officially an Instagram filter junkie!

So yeah…

As you already know, my recent vacation ended on a sour note due to American Airlines.

But while I wait for the AA response to my complaint and request for reimbursement of my out-of-pocket costs expenses and inconveniences suffered, I’ve decided to bring back my #TravelTuesdays for the summer.

I consider myself to be a seasoned traveler but I did learn some new travel lessons which I will be sharing with my email subscribers in my next newsletter.

In the meantime, I will be re-sharing travel hacks that I regularly use and have already posted on this blog so if you enjoy my travel tips, you may want to think about signing up for my newsletter.

Making lemonade out of lemons and all that jazz…

Here we go!

My Favorite Travel Hack #1 – The Power of the Power Bar

Even though it was almost midnight, I still leveraged my power bar!

My AA flight was delayed by five hours before being cancelled at midnight so it’s not like I had to scrounge around for an available charging station – there were plenty to choose from.

But I still used the power bar that I always pack in my carry-on.

It allows me to keep and eye on ALL my devices in one spot AND charge EVERYTHING at the same time. I can charge six devices with access to just one plug – travel cell, regular cell, laptop, tablet, camera, MP3…

You know that frustrated feeling when all charging stations are full?

Avoid the feeling. Do yourself a favor and simplify your life by packing a power strip in your carry-on luggage.

You will thank me later.

This is my favorite travel hack and I always laugh when a stranger comes up to me and says, “Wow! I’m going to do that too!”

  1. Good to be prepared. Sorry to read about the AA mess. We had something similar happen in Chicago years ago, on a connection to Europe. Missed flight, then late, then delayed, until we finally ended up on India Air. Wasn’t sure how to feel about it, since I’ve never flown them before. Good experience. We arrived at our destination a day late, but all in one piece.

    1. Thanks. I will be making a complaint but first, I set a email of praise to Air Canada to tell them how wonderful their two agents at the gate were to us. AC management told me that they have forwarded the kind words so hopefully it reaches them.
