    Medical Insurance for US citizens

    Big ticket items also include medical coverage. My wife was recently hospitalized for 10 days in Switzerland. Without travel insurance, we would have been out of pocket for $11,000+ in medical expenses plus lodging and additional car rental expenses for me. Unfortunately, things happen...

    Osprey Backpacks are awesome!

    Agreed. I have a Stratos 36 and love it. I also purchased an Osprey Farpoint 40 travel pack last year for a month long non-hiking trip to Switzerland and was able to use it as a carry-on and avoid checking a bag. I have been very happy with my Osprey choices.

    Travel Insurance

    I second all of the above. Do not skimp on your travel insurance selection! My wife and I visited Switzerland recently. Two days before our scheduled return, she came down with a serious case of pneumonia. She had to be transported to the hospital by ambulance where she was hospitalized for...

    Pocket knives on trains

    Wow, so they finally started running people through security in Europe for trains? I guess I haven't been on a European train since 2015, but I was always amazed that there were no security checks whatsoever on any train journey I ever took anywhere in Europe. I assume the incident in I...

    Recommendation - Keeping Back Pack Dry

    I used the rain cover as well as compactor bags. Probably overkill, but the contents stayed dry. I went the rain jacket route and wore rain pants during heavy rains. Stayed dry except for my feet.
