8 Awesome Outdoor Activities To Try When Visiting Colorado

Colorado Travel Tips

Whether you’re a nature lover or culture aficionado, there is always something to do in Colorado. The city boasts the most stunning views in America as it’s nestled up to the cliffs and mountains. Colorado is a beautiful state filled with numerous sights and adventures. There are a number of city parks, some of which are very different from the types of parks you are used too. You would be forgiven for thinking you’re in a reserve of some sort. With all the beauty that beckons outside, you really can’t afford to stay indoors. Not even for a minute!

When is the Best Time of the Year to Visit Colorado?

Typically, the Winter is when most tourists plan trips to Colorado; during ski season. Prices are at a premium, but snowboarders and skiers love the fresh power during the day and a thriving nightlife scene in the evening. Winter in Colorado means cold weather, so bundle up accordingly and prepare for the occasional snowstorm. However, Colorado is still a great travel destination during summer too. In fact, tourists who visit Colorado outside of ski season will find lower hotel and flight rates. The summers in Colorado are beautiful, the weather is warm and dry and in the fall, and you can watch the leaves change.

5 Best Noise Cancelling Headphones Under 100 Bucks

5 Best Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones Under 100

In this article, I talk about 5 of the best noise cancelling headphones under 100 bucks that I’ve bought and used over the years. Most of my life is riding the bus, train or being on a plane. So I like the zone out with my music and listen to everything from music with heavy bass to live music and podcasts.

Best Noise Cancelling Headphones Under 100 Bucks

I have a confession to make; I go through more wireless headphones than anyone I know. It’s not entirely my fault. I travel a lot, and for whatever reason, wireless noise cancelling headphones are always an item I have to re-buy. I had a pair stolen from me when traveling to Costa Rica and then again when I went to Europe. I lost a pair once when I was in Mexico after I had too much to drink and then had two more pairs break on me from random miss fortune. The glass half full outlook on these bad luck experiences is that I have tested out a large number of noise-cancelling headphones, and I now know what I’m looking for.

Naturally, after having to rebuy a few pairs, I now only target the best noise cancelling headphones under 100 bucks I can find, and I have a few brands I know and trust. Those looking to pickup up a pair for a flight or vacation, or simply looking to wear them in a noisy environment like the gym, will want to make sure you find noise cancelling headphones specifically. The main reason being is you don’t want your music to have to compete with the sounds around you. Noise cancellation makes it possible to listen to music without raising the volume excessively. The theory is, to cancel the lower-frequency portions of noise. However, there is a slight drawback. Noise cancelling usually costs more and it’s also been known to reduce audio quality and add high-frequency hiss. So the goal is to find the best wireless noise cancelling headphones that will sound great and will also last.

The following are the five best wireless noise cancelling headphones under 100 bucks I would recommend.

BCOZZY Review: The Best Kids Travel Neck Pillow

Kids Travel Neck Pillow

In this article, I talk about one of the best travel neck pillow for kids, specifically, BCOZZY. In this BCOZZY Review, I look at the benefits of this neck pillow and talk about how much my child loves it.

BCOZZY Review

Traveling and getting to know other people’s culture is one of the best things anyone can do in life. There’s hardly a better feeling in the world than the thrill that comes with seeing the most amazing sights around the world. I’ve thought to believe that right from my adolescence, and although I couldn’t do much traveling as a kid, I made a vow to catch up on what I missed when I grew up.

But traveling long distances comes with lots of stress. It doesn’t matter if it’s a road trip or long plane ride, there’s only so much time you can spend appreciating the landscape without feeling jetlagged or just burned out. I for one am quite fastidious about my sleeping positions. I get cranky after a long trip as I find it difficult to sleep in the car or plane. It doesn’t matter which position I try, I’m just never comfortable. I’ve mentioned this in previous articles and even suggested a few cooling blankets to help when staying in a hotel room away from home.

BCOZZY ReviewAs the years went by, I learned to adapt to the sleep deprivation. Although it still takes its toll when I finally get to my destination because I’ll need a full day of quality sleep or two before I can enjoy the sights and sounds. I learned I had to include more days in my itinerary because of this simple fact. However, things changed when my child began to come with me when traveling, as I realized the world stopped being about just me.

I noticed the annoying crankiness right from our first trip together and I couldn’t blame the poor boy. The road trip was quite long and the road was bumpy at some points. I felt he was going to eventually shake it off like I always do but this seemed not to be the case for him. He hardly enjoyed any moment on our first trip and kept complaining of a stiff neck. This experience culminated into a dislike for traveling and I couldn’t afford to let that grow.

I firmly believe there are only a few things you can spend money on that would make you richer, and products that improve the quality of your sleep is one of them. I knew I had to find a solution and during my frantic search, I came across the BCOZZY kids chin support Travel neck pillow.

Just recently our very own staff writer Julie Buckingham wrote an amazing article on Laptop Backpacks for Women, which made me think of one of my last trip to Germany. I bought the Osprey Farpoint 40 travel pack specifically for the trip, which was half business, half pleasure. We went for just over two weeks and because I had to fit in a Laptop and a small camera into the bag, I was concerned about the space. I was very close to getting the Osprey Farpoint 55 Travel Backpack, which is bigger, but I’m glad I didn’t.

One of the reason’s why I decided to stick with Osprey Farpoint 40 travel pack was that I was trying my hardest pack less. I was inspired by the documentary “Minimalism” which I had watched on Netflix leading up to the trip. Minimalism, in a nutshell, is the goal to just use your most essential items and not to carry around extra clutter in life. So for this trip, I figured I would force myself to do so by only carrying around a smaller backpack. To my surprise this the Osprey Farpoint 40 held a large amount of stuff, way more than I was expecting. My minimalism is goal remains on track in life, but looking back on that trip, I could have easily packed more items in the Osprey Farpoint 40 backpack.
