Happy Birthday Houston, Texas, and Beyond!  It’s been one year since I started this little project and I figure I’d celebrate by giving YOU a gift – something I use myself and find quite handy.  So, here’s my one year anniversary giveaway!

Sign up for my mailing list (on the right or at the end of the screen!) and on March 1, I will randomly draw a name from all the subscribers (open to US residents only, you’ll have to provide a ship to address!) to receive an Aukey charger.

Yes, I have one and it is great for travel as well as around the house. One electrical plug – gives you five USB charging ports with one being Quick Charge 2.0 compatible.

Want to know another little travel secret?  I always travel with a six foot extension cord!  Ever check into a hotel and all the outlets are hidden away or in the opposite end of the room where you want to use them?  This solves that.  Traveling internationally and don’t want to carry more than one adapter?  This solves that (just plug the extension cord into the adapter and – voila – you have three or more outlets available!)

So, sign up for the mailing list and be on the lookout for the winner to be announced on March 1!

What’s ahead for 2017?  I’ll wrap up my articles on the Czech Republic and go back in time to trips to Chile, Argentina, Croatia, Utah, and California.  I’ll also be writing about my travels to New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington, and future travels that are in the plans (decisions, decisions…..let’s just say one of the possible locations is known for their pisco sours and another for their paella!)
