This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to teardrops and vintage trailers. While St Tropez is a great little town in which to take a wander, it’s always a good idea to stay somewhere that’s a little removed from the crowds. Last September, I spent a couple of nights in Villa Marie, a gorgeous boutique hotel just a few minutes drive from St Tropez itself.
When deciding what to pay for a used camper van, you’ll need to do your research and visit the various places people use to sell an RV. There are many classified RV listing sales sites you can check both locally and online. I always like to start with a quick check on eBay. You can get a sense of the conversion van models, features and price ranges.
Most airlines have a number of seats reserved for check-in only. So get to the airport early and you may even get a bulkhead or exit row seats (with more legroom). However, some airlines, especially in Europe, might not be able to book you seats in advance, only at check-in. So arrive early to the airport.
This precision portable luggage scale is a cinch to use. Just clip the strap to the handle of your suitcase, lift the bag off the floor, wait briefly until you hear the beep and then view the bag’s weight in increments of 0.1 lbs. or 0.1 kg on the large, easy-to-read backlit LCD digital display. Remove the weighed bag and simply push the ON/OFF button on this auto-calibrated digital luggage scale to reset the weight to 0 so it’s ready to weigh your next bag. This handy scale is extremely compact so you can just tuck it into a corner of your suitcase, briefcase or carry-on bag and it won’t add appreciably to the weight of your luggage or carry-on bags. It runs on a long-life lithium battery, which is included, and comes with EatSmart’s 100% satisfaction guarantee.
So, when you think of gifts for travel, consider what would make travel less of a pain. Well provisioned, travel for the men in your gift list can be eased a little. If they are not travellers yet, give them gifts to kick-start them out of their arm chairs and soon they will be rolling their suitcases, too.
I’ve lived in San Diego my entire life and I grew up going to the desert, including Anza-Borrego State Park, multiple times every year. I do not ever remember seeing the Anza-Borrego wildflowers in bloom like they are this year. I vaguely remember hiking with my mom and keeping our eyes peeled for the occasional desert bloom. But this year, because of the insanely above-average rain we’ve received in Southern California, the desert wildflowers are out in full force in Anza-Borrego. In fact, they’re saying this may be the biggest super bloom in 20 years.
