We still remember how we felt after finishing high school, college and graduate school: we were elated and itching to travel, but we were also a little (or a lot) tight on money. Since these are the likely sentiments of most graduates this June, we’ve compiled a graduate gift guide designed to celebrate and support the rad grad. Do you have any gift suggestions that was a hit with your rad grad? Share your idea with the Boingo community! 1. Apple iPad 2 (starts at $499) Your rad grad doesn’t need an iPad 2, which is why s/he isn’t likely to buy one. But we’re betting that most rad grads really want an iPad 2. To minimize costs, opt for the lowest-priced option, the Wi-Fi only model. And remind your grad to install the free Boingo app for locating free and Boingo hotspots. Better yet, set up your grad with a Boingo Mobile account for $7.95/month so they can connect at over 325,000 hotspots globally. 2. Samsung Fascinate ($199 with two-year contract via Verizon Wireless) If your rad grad is in dire need of a phone upgrade, consider one of the hottest Android phones currently in the market: the Samsung Fascinate (check
Business travel can be a drag, even if it’s an opportunity to see and experience new places. So how can a frequent jetsetter bring some joy back into traveling? For answers, we went to travel connoisseur Cynthia Drescher, editor of Jaunted and contributing editor of HotelChatter. Drescher — who works, breathes, and lives almost exclusively on the road — says it’s about finding pleasure in the small things. Below are her three simple business travel tips. Got a tip of your own? Please share them with us in the comments section. 1. Love your luggage: Every single time I finish re-packing my rolling carry-on at the end of a trip, when everything fits just so and I can shove last-minute purchases in without endangering the safety of my gadgets, I step back and look down at my bag and say, “I love this bag.” There is no excuse for traveling with bad or mediocre luggage. This is of one of my little missions, to educate travelers on the importance of having the right travel accessories. You need to get to a point with your luggage (preferably always carry-on), where you’re in awe of its pure awesomeness. It should be a
1. Everyone has a black bag and those cute little ribbons we tie to our luggage fall off. Buy a bag in a color or pattern so that no one will accidentally take your bag. Plus, it will be easy to spot on the carousel. 2. Get used to it — the quart-size clear bag is here to stay. Invest in one that won’t fall apart after three uses (save the sandwich bag for your lunch). When you are not traveling, you can use it to store things in your purse or beach bag. 3. Always throw a small expandable bag in your luggage. You never know when you’ll need it — and it can hold some of those extra items you buy on your trip home … 3-foot Toblerones anyone? 4. Always “break in” new shoes before traveling with them. But just in case, carry a back-up in your purse (Come on, the 4” stilettos are not that comfortable no matter what we tell him). 5. Remember before you dress for your flight you’ll have to do the security “strip tease.” That means shoes and all outerwear (jackets, cardigans, zippered hoodies, etc.) will have to come off before you
