Happy New Year! I’m feeling very optimistic about and excited for 2019, including some major life changes like moving and starting a new job. I challenged myself personally and professionally in 2018, which I feel has set me up for a very successful year ahead. Looking forward to sharing the details with you all soon! In the meantime, since my last Links To Look At post, I’ve published three Europe city guides: Prague (my first premium guide filled with exclusive content), Vienna, and Bruges. Next up will be Budapest, followed by The Netherlands and London. I can’t wait for you to see them so you can add these incredible cities to your 2019 bucket lists!
Worth Reading For A Smarter 2019
Overbooked Versus Overlooked Destinations – While I believe timing is everything, especially when it comes to travel, these alternate options are very worth considering. I can personally attest to how overcrowded Amsterdam was from my trip in September. More on that coming soon!
Orlando International Airport ranked among most likely to delay your flight – Well, this is very unfortunate. I highly recommend TSA Pre-Check/Global Entry for 2019 if you don’t have it already. It’s made a huge difference for me, especially at MCO!
24 Things to Do on a Plane When You’re Bored – This article made me laugh, probably because I have found myself feeling bored on a plane one too many times. I blame the broken TV in front of me (when EVERYONE else’s works), or the super slow wi-fi. I think writing cards/postcards is a great idea, and I’ve been obsessed with podcasts lately too.
How to stay healthy while traveling (from a germophobe) – There are tons of articles on this topic, but I found this one to have the best round-up of predictable and unpredictable tips.
Healthy travel tips from models, personal trainers, fashion editors and more – I will never not be interested in these types of articles! I find it so interesting what routines, habits, and recommendations people have for travel, health/wellness, and beauty.
