Packing List: Must-Have Memorial Day Weekend Travel Products

With that in mind, we’ve picked some of our all-time favorite travel products — the stuff you’ll want to stock up on so that you can look so fresh and so clean on your out-of-town jaunts.

Packing List: 10+ Things To Bring On A Tropical Vacay

Though I don’t travel as much as I’d like to (technically, I’d like to travel full-time, but you know what I mean), I consider myself an expert packer. I do not believe in checking baggage (lost luggage has happened to me too many times to risk it again) so that means that mo matter where I’m going and for how long, I have to find a way to squeeze it all into one suitcase that can fit in the overhead compartment. Luckily, I like traveling to beachy locales, which means lots of light fabrics which don’t take up much room. Even still, I have been known to waste valuable suitcase space on ridiculous items that I will never get any use out of. But for my trip to Tulum, Mexico last week, I packed (almost) all the right stuff AND still had plenty of room left in my suitcase so I could haul back a massive dreamcatcher. After the jump, get details on the 10 essentials (outside of, like, toothpaste and my birth control pills) I packed for my trip, plus seven things I can assure you from prior experience are absolutely not necessary.

With an approved membership, women have access to thousands of eligible bankers, athletes, lawyers, executives and other uncategorized rich dudes who are willing to fork over travel cash in exchange for a wonderful and of course, most importantly, attractive female travel companion.

If you’ve seen “Portlandia,” you know that Portland is a weird city. If you live here, you know that people spend a lot of time, money, and energy to maintain that weirdness. The guy wearing a Santa suit and riding a unicycle around the farmer’s market, for example, he’s trying really hard. I’ve lived in Portland my whole life, and I’ve always found the forced weirdness kind of annoying, because really, there are quite a few things about Portland that are just legitimately, truly, genuinely, non-ironically weird. Here are 10 examples… Keep reading »

Dream Life Status: Overnight Suite At A Chocolate Factory With Edible Furnishings

oompa loompas photo

Can this be true? Or is it a ganache-induced fever dream? The Little Chocolate Shop, a chocolate factory in Leyburn, Yorkshire, UK, is allowing guests overnight stays in their “chocolate suite.” The suite features “edible furnishings, a chocolate fountain and a fancy dress box filled with Wonka-esque accessories, aprons and toques,” which will be replenished daily. WHAT. You had me at “Wonka.” And that’s not all: Guests can watch chocolate being made at the factory and end their stay with a “chocolate breakfast.” Chocolate breakfast — two words that sound so right together. This chocoholic fantasy is only available until April 8th and all proceeds will benefit Breast Cancer UK. The “chocolate suite” only sleeps four, so gather your friends to fight amongst themselves now. That might really be worth a hunger games. [Telegraph UK]

John Hart and Dennis Mayer, both of Southern California, were arrested this week on the Caribbean island of Dominica after they were seen “naked, fondling each other” from the balcony of their cabin Celebrity Summit cruise ship in plain sight of people on land.  Both seafaring sodomites plead guilty in court today to “indecent exposure” but claimed they weren’t committing public acts of buggery. ”They were struck by the beautiful mountains, the clean and clear fresh air and were having a few cocktails, and so threw caution to the wind,” their lawyer told the Dominican court. Cocktails? Fresh air? Beautiful mountains? Suuure they were just hangin’ out.

Here at The Frisky, we are of the opinion that every woman needs to have at least one wild adventure in her life. Ideally, she needs to have a bunch of them. But if adventuring is not your style, that’s OK too. One solid adventure will suffice. Who knows, maybe you’ll like going zip lining in the rain forest it so much, you’ll do it again. It’s impossible to make a wild adventure “happen.” The more premeditated your attempt to force one, the further away you move from the spirit of spontaneity. That is the greatest part about adventure — the element of surprise. Like I said, it’s impossible to manufacture the craziest night of your life, but there are things you can do that increase the likelihood of adventure. After the jump, Frisky staffers share their wild adventure wisdom. Keep reading »

Every year, my sister and I go to Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. For years I have tried to to explain the concept of “carnival” to my American friends. I’m slowly understanding that the idea is ridiculously foreign: replace cotton candy for endless top-shelf liquor, Ferris wheels for huge trucks blasting music throughout the entire city and lame whack-a-mole games for half-naked women and men “wining” on one another in elaborate beaded/feathered costumes. It just seems absurd for those used to a traditional American-styled carnival and, when I sit back and think about it, thousands of people parading and dancing through the streets does seem a little crazy. But that is precisely what makes me return annually: I know that I’m getting into something so ridiculously unconventional that anything can happen. Keep reading »

Ever since I visited London last year, I’ve become obsessed with moving there. I loved everything about it: the history, the people, the food, the fashion, the TV shows about medical oddities. And the toffee pudding? My god, the toffee pudding! I live in Portland right now, which definitely has its charms (many of which are lampooned on “Portlandia” every week), but lately I’ve found myself spending much of my free time plotting and scheming ways to relocate to London. I’m wondering–what city do you dream about? Where would you live if you could live anywhere? Or do you already live in the perfect place?

The Unfriendly Skies: 18 Celebs Behaving Badly On Planes

Al Roker allegedly caused a stir on an American Airlines flight this week when he refused to give up his first-class seat so Alex Van Halen and wife could sit next to each other. What was his excuse? Oh, he claimed it was because he was allergic to dogs and changing seats would put him closer to a passenger traveling with a dog in a crate. Hmmm. Based on this photographic evidence, we’re not so sure that’s true. Then again, poodles are hypoallergenic. It was the Van Halens who saved the day. They quietly moved to business class. How very un-rock n’ roll of them. Why does it seem like famous people always cause the most travel trouble? Read on for a list of other celebrities who’ve had kerfuffles while traveling. [NY Post]
