items of the week – march 16

If you’re looking for a few tips when you plan your next vacation, check out these items on my list:

1. InsideTrip.com – I read about this new site a while ago on L.A. Times Daily Travel Deal Blog. It’s a new meta-search engine that provides a more in-depth look at various flights it pulls up. You’ll see a list of deals by “TripQuality” rankings, which rates the flights by speed, comfort, and ease. It’s another site to try out the next time you’re looking for flights.

2. Put a little humor into your travel planning by watching the following clip. Living in Hawaii, ethnic jokes don’t really phase me. I find it humorous since I can actually relate to it.  Gotta love Anjelah Johnson!

3. If you’re bored and looking to do some good for the world, visit FreeRice.com, answer a few vocabulary questions and you’ll help out with the UN World Food Program by donating a couple hundred grains of rice to those who need it. I’m not quite sure how it all works out in the end, but it’s food for thought.

4. Check out TripIt…it’s a perfect place to throw all your travel planning documents into one place. It’s simple and really easy to use if you’re looking for an all-around itinerary. Just set up an account with an email address and send all your airline, hotel, or activity confirmations to a designated email address and the website does the rest.

5. After you take your trip and still couldn’t find any good souvenirs, check out UncommonGoods.com for some cool gifts and gadgets. I’ve known about this site for quite a while and it still amazes me with all the cool items that I want to buy for my place or desk.

By the way, what do you think of these shoes? I haven’t found them around Honolulu, so I guess I’ll have to order them online if I really like them that much.
