We wish we could stowaway in Mary Jo Manzanares suitcase. We can't, so we will settle for the next best thing--reading her worldly, witty blog, Traveling with MJ
. There's no FOF better suited to author a travel blog; MJ is a flight attendant as well as an editor for PlanetEye Traveler
. Her blog is filled with insider tips for painless travel, personal anecdotes and things you probably should know about traveling but don't. For instance...Do you know what "glamping" is? MJ explains here
. Or, what's the most important thing you should pack in your suitcase? "A copy of your itinerary, along with your name, address, home phone, cell phone, and email," writes MJ. "This is one more way to help the airlines find you if you are separated from your bag." Seems obvious but... would you have remembered to do it?
