Lost Luggage May Soon Be a Thing of the Past

Hotel Chic & Basic Ramblas, Barcelona : the reception - So THAT'S where all the lost luggage goes!!

It is estimated that a whopping 26 million bags are lost each year. That being said, lost luggage may soon be a thing of the past—thanks to a new tracking system.

Some companies and airlines are developing a digital tag and tracking device that will eventually replace paper tags. This tracking system will allow travellers to easily locate lost luggage through the use of a smartphone app. It will also make the checking-in process quicker.

“Our aim is to take the stress out of travel and put you in control of your bag,” said David van Hoytema, a co-founder of FastTrack Company. Air France-KLM has joined forces with FastTrack to develop a tracking system that works through a smartphone app.

British Airlines, and Air France-KLM hope to have their systems in place by the end of the year.

Let’s do a little happy dance, shall we?

Bermuda: A Piece of Paradise

20140206-204500.jpg

A couple of years ago, my husband and I were fortunate enough to make a trip to the stunning island of Bermuda. We loved everything about it—so much so, that we even envisioned what retirement might look like if we settled in this sweet spot (our kids were only 6, 8, and 10 yet we were talking retirement!).

Incredible beaches, beautiful landscape, uber-friendly people, heaps of history, scrumptious cuisine, and shop-till-you-drop boutiques left us feeling liked we’d stepped into paradise.

We’d love to go back with the kids. They’d love the beaches and they’d enjoy visiting the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, exploring the Crystal and Fantasy Caves, and swimming with dolphins… Did I mention how incredible the beaches are?

Fun Facts:
1. Bermuda’s “pink” sand really is pink! The sand at Horseshoe Bay Beach is actually tiny shell particles mixed in with pieces of coral and calcium carbonate.
2. The entire island measures a mere 20.75 square miles.
3. The island has the most golf courses per capita of any location in the world.
4. Bermuda shorts are the most worn attire for men. They are even worn to the office with jacket, tie, knee socks, and dress shoes during the hot season (May to November).
5. St. Georges, established in 1612, is the oldest continuously inhabited town of English origin in the western hemisphere.

Bora Bora: What’s in a Name?

Did you know that Bora Bora’s name is really Pora Pora? Early settlers misunderstood what the local Tahitians were saying. They heard “Bora Bora” instead of “Pora Pora” which means “first born.” The name was never corrected.

I doubt anyone could argue that Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. One of the best things about this spot? There are NO poisonous snakes or insects in Bora Bora. So relax and fall asleep under the stars.
