7 Things That Will Happen When You’re Home For The Holidays

7 Things That Will Happen When You're Home For The Holidays

You get off the airplane and into the backseat of your dad’s car and say to yourself, “Why the heck did I ever leave this place?” Everything is exactly how you remember it.

Your childhood room is still stuffed with decorations from sophomore year of high school. A ratty desktop computer with dial up Internet, a wall lined with Clay Aiken posters, Bop Bop a giraffe stuffed animal that looks like it’s been through a war. That shopping center down the street still has your favorite Italian restaurant, where the garlic rolls are served with steam sliding off the top. And any drive around town has you passing by spots where you spent late nights loitering with friends. Read more on Huffington Post Women…

 

Listen To These Audiobooks On Your Flight Home For The Holidays

Headphones

Now that “Serial” is over, what the hell are you going to listen to on your flight back to your family’s house for the holidays? My flight from New York City to my mom’s house is surprisingly quick, but it’s just long enough for boredom to start creeping in if you don’t come prepared with a book. If you’re more of the listening type, Audiobooks.com put together a nifty list of their audiobook titles that can be heard in full by the time you land, and I’m thinking of giving it a try. The books are grouped by the duration of some of the most popular travel routes in the US, which you can adapt based on the length of your own flight!

Admit It, At Some Point You’ve Been Tempted To Start An Airplane Brawl Like This One

Airplane Brawl

I kid, but this is actually terrible: yesterday, a brawl broke out between three women on an Air China flight from Chongqing to Hong Kong over a crying baby. Two women were woken up mid-flight by crying, so they confronted the baby’s mom, a 27-year-old woman named Chan Juan Sung. I’m going to take a wild guess and imagine that when you’re a frazzled parent whose kid is screaming in an enclosed space, the last thing you need is to be told that your child is screaming loudly. Sung was already acutely aware of that fact. When the confrontation resolved little, the two women passive-aggressively reclined their seats as far back as they’d go, because they are mature grown-ups.

16 Tips For Flying On The Worst Travel Day Of The Year

The day before Thanksgiving is by and large the worst day of the year to travel. It’s one of the busiest (if not the busiest) and to make this year even tougher, the East Coast is expected to be hit with snow. If bad weather causes flight delays in the Northeast, prepare yourself for a domino effect that will screw up schedules throughout the country. Nevertheless, I, along with thousands of other determined souls, will be attempting to brave the crowds. I’ve clocked a lot of hours in airports, and I’ve spent the last few holiday seasons learning the hard way what does and doesn’t help soothe the trauma of trying to get home for Turkey Day. A few ways to make the commute a bit more bearable…

16 Weekender Bags For Your Next Getaway

In the hierarchy of bags, the weekender is an oft-overlooked gem. That’s a bummer, because when a regular purse won’t do, it’s the perfect midsize stand-in for the gym, work, and of course, a weekend jaunt. Shopping for them always makes me daydream of some spontaneous getaway scenario in which I decide to head somewhere one hour before the weekend begins and throw the bag over my shoulder before heading out the door for some jetsetting (okay, maybe I’m projecting my starry-eyed aspirations onto one bag just a little too much). Click through for 16 lovely weekenders for every occasion!
