Essential Travel Items for Your Summer Explorations

Whether your adventures take you across the state or around the world this summer, having the right travel gear can help make your trip successful. As a full-time travel writer for the past three decades, I've tried many products. Some helped, while others were mostly hype. Over the past year, I've sampled various items to select the best ones to help you as you plan your summer vacation. My favorites? The Level8 luggage and Samsonite backpack. They go with me everywhere!
