Decorations and activities this year include a Christmas Village with SpongeBob SquarePants and his giant, walk-through Pineapple House.


Elsewhere in the airport, the gardening crew has created huge topiaries of famous landmarks from around the world, including The Leaning Tower of Pisa, St Basil’s Cathedral, the Colosseum and a Trojan Horse.



Spotted at Las Vegas Travel Goods Show

I spent a long day walking the aisles of the 2013 Travel Goods Show underway this week in Las Vegas. Here are few fun items I encountered along the way.

Flight 001

Everyone travelers needs – and probably has – some power adapters. Flight 001 has created a set that is not only fun to look at but easy to figure out how to use.

Booth after booth is filled with really cool suitcases and travel packs for kids. I got a kick out the 3D roller bags and backpacks from MAXTOYUSA

Travel Goods FLANABAGS

These AirQuart travel bags from Flanabags are not only made in the USA (Massachusetts and South Carolina), they are stylish and see-through, sturdier than those zippered sandwich bags and easier to clean.

Travel Goods_Concealment

Safety is always a big issue for travelers and there are loads of travel bags and accessories designed to improve safety and security for you and your belongings. For those who want to keep their valuables close by, shirts, belly bands, socks, underpants and other products from Travel Safe Products all have concealment pockets that offer a good option.

More fun – and some wacky – travel gear to come…
