Travel Tips

For all the nature-loving outdoor enthusiasts you’re shopping for this graduation and Father’s Day season, let this list be your guide.

Whether Dad is a big nature guy, loves camping and fishing, or you’re honoring the graduates in the family with some accessories to pair with their inevitable summer wanderlust, check out some versatile and functional accessories travelers can use anywhere, even off the grid.

YETI Hopper Sidekick

For all the tubing, kayaking, rafting, camping and outdoor-you-name-it, the YETI Hopper Sidekick is just that — your new sidekick. It wears like a fanny pack, but acts like a cooler. Travelers can enjoy cold drinks on the go, safe from water and heat creeping in and the chilled temperatures sneaking out. Add on with a matching YETI ice pack that fits perfectly along the seam, and belt hook and you’re ready for adventure and refreshments.

Gift your adventurer with a journal they can use to document their time on the road or abroad. For recent graduates hitting the open road toward their new career or adventure, a journal is a great gift. Having a journal for a long hiking expedition or epic journey without WiFi is a great way to remember to take note of all the stories along the way for a personal keepsake, or to share with someone when they get home. Go with a classic leather-bound notebook or something a little more durable and waterproof.

Spotify Premuim

A little less tangible, but oh, so useful, a Premium Spotify account is something you can gift for friends, family and yourself. The premium service works without WiFi, so users can go offline and still listen to all their favorite music, podcasts and audiobooks. Users can also download their favorite songs, make playlists to remember home and even share playlists with friends and family back at home, so you can listen to the same music, together, even when hundreds of miles apart.

Bags by Eagle Creek

Whether an aspiring travel adventurer or already a world traveler, durable gear is a gamechanger. Shop sustainably made carry-ons, backpacks and heavy-duty luggage pieces from Eagle Creek for that completely functional, but thoughtful, gift for the outdoor enthusiasts in your life.

Let these gifts inspire the travelers in your family or make their already planned trip all the more exciting with a few new accessories and thoughtful add-ons.

Hamilton County, Indiana, for Foodie Families

Indiana is like America’s middle child. Its population, size and even location put it right in the middle of all the other states in the country. It had to find its thing to stand out and rise above, one of which is its food and beverage scene.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
