Just when you thought online dating was getting a bit boring, there’s a new twist to spice things up a bit.

Enter Tourbar—a new way to connect with the perfect person to explore the globe, whether you’re planning an excursion close to home or planning on jetting to a foreign locale.

It’s a unique way to hang out with someone who is local to the area where you are traveling. What better way to see the “real” cities and exotic destinations instead of getting stuck on the traditional tourist trap path.

Here’s the game plan: Sign up for a membership plan at the Tourbar site and begin making plans for your next trip. As you search for a traveling companion, you can set a purpose for the trip, set financial intentions (such as each person paying their own way), shared interests and hobbies, and details of what you’re looking for.

The TourBar folks have made the process pretty simple and say their system for verifying users gives you some security that you’ll meet trustworthy people.

If you’ve ever said to yourself that you’d love to travel if only you had someone to join you, now is your chance.

Fly high in style with the best travel accessories for long flights in 2024
Modern air travel can really suck, but with the right gear, it doesn't have to
Passengers walking through an airport.

Without a doubt, taking a flight is still the most convenient mode of transportation, but let's be honest, modern air travel kind of sucks. Thanks largely to the pandemic, it's only gotten worse in the last three years. On the list of humanity’s favorite pastimes, flying ranks just above listening to babies cry and just below eating a partially frozen chicken sandwich. Unfortunately, many flights feature both.

However, flying can be much less terrible if you're prepared with the right gear. If you’re fortunate enough to sit in first class, you're probably sitting comfy with a pre-flight bourbon, back rubs, and a complimentary amenity kit. For the rest of us plebs, however, we need to make our own. So recline your seat the full inch, put that tray table down, and check out this list of the best air travel accessories to pack for your next long flight.

Whether you're a backpacker, urban explorer, or resort lover, upgrade your next trip with the top luggage brands

For some travelers, luggage is purely functional. Their suitcase, backpack, or rollaboard is merely a tool to haul their stuff from point A to point B. For others, it’s as much an extension of their personality as the car they drive. Most of us fall somewhere in between. We want luggage that’s affordable, durable enough to survive whatever punishment the airlines subject it to, and a little bit of style doesn’t hurt, too.

With so many options, finding the right luggage can be a challenge. There is no best luggage, rather, it’s about what’s best for you, and that all depends on how you travel, how long you plan to be away, and what you typically pack. Should you opt for hard-sided or soft-sided luggage? Perhaps a carry-on, a checked bag, or a combination of the two?
