(17)All You Need to Know About  Travel  Humidors

 

          When humidors where first created by Zino Davidoff in the early 20th century, they were large cellar humidors which certainly made for restricted travel. One now had the ability to strive for the perfect cigar, but only from home. Most people would agree that the feasibility of traveling with a large room did not exist, and still does not, even today. A dilemma arose as to how to preserve a moist cigar while traveling.

Early models of travel humidors were patterned after air-tight cases in which the cigar aficionado placed cigars already maintained in a cellar humidor. This worked well except that when one opened the travel humidor, since the maintained humidity existed as a result of already moist cigars, each time the humidor was opened, humidity would escape and the ambient humidity of the room replaced the humidity that had been inside the travel humidor.

Today humidors can be found that are battery-powered or can be plugged into any available AC outlet or a combination of both. While these types of humidors are more functional than ostentatious, they can be made of any materials in varying shapes and designs, suited to please the taste of even the most discriminating smoker.

Most travel humidors are made of extremely durable plastic, designed to withstand the rigors of being moved about and for its lightweight portability.

Travel humidors now meant that a society that is becoming increasingly more mobile as a result of the prevalence of automobiles and air is no longer demanded to choose between having a perfect cigar and being tied to home or having to leave behind one’s favorite pastime to travel.

Travel humidors are also an inexpensive addition with many functional travel humidors costing less than $30. The internet is an excellent way to research the different styles and brands while also finding the least expensive style that will meet ones requirements. Humidors provides detailed information on cigar humidors, travel humidors, and humidor plans. Humidors is the sister site of Cigars Web.

(18)Along The Well Traveled Path....

Along The Well Traveled Path...
© 2009 June McHardy

I've always been a reader!

I've always haunted the local library - still do - but
when we were going through some bad times several years
ago, I discovered a whole new classification of books
and tapes. Motivational and inspirational ones.

After a bad day, I could immerse myself in "Real Magic"
by Wayne Dyer, and know that there were possibilities
out there after all. This book taught me that
meditation doesn't need to be done in a specific way
but that you can simply sit by yourself quietly, for 30
to 60 minutes and you'll come up with numerous exciting
solutions!

Bob Proctor's "You were Born Rich" was my constant
companion for many years. It's dog-eared now, but it
taught me that riches include many things in our lives
besides money and we need to be grateful for each and
every one.

Every time I drove my car I listened to cassette tapes,
including Brian Tracy's "The Psychology of Success"
tapes or "Possibity Thinking" by Robert H. Schuller and
somehow, it gradually dawned on me that this assistance
is always present and available to us in our lives, in
good times and in bad.

Over the years, any challenges that I have always give
way to hope and possibility when I pick up one of my
books or tapes. Somehow, I can always open a book to
any page and find a quote or a statement that 'speaks
to me' and changes the way that I'm thinking.

The same is true of the books that I read today. "The
Seat of the soul" by Gary Zukov or Dr.Wayne Dyer's
"There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem" and
"How to know God" by Deepak Chopra - along with masses
of other material by the 'Motivational Masters' of our
times are all basically teaching us the same thing -
that we are 'Spiritual Beings' with access to miracles
in our lives.

What I find really exciting about this is that all of
these authors have in fact gone before me on their
spiritual paths and their legacy of books and tapes are
now my guideposts along my way.

Now I'd like to share them with you!

To that end, I've compiled a list of some of these
Motivational Gurus with many of their works at

(19)Alternatives for Business Travelers.

 

"I'm coming home. I've been away too long. Been away so long. I'm coming home" – Ian Thomas, in Coming Home
 

I still recall my road warrior days. It seemed like every other week, I was hopping on a plane for Orlando or Vancouver or Palm Springs or Washington or Chicago or Toronto.
 

It might not be Rome, Paris, and Monte Carlo, but Washington, Toronto and Orlando are pretty classy places. I went to crucial meetings. I was an important person. I was a frequent flyer.
 

However, after a while, all the towns begin to look the same. One airport hotel looks amazingly like another. Surely the taxi driver in Washington and the taxi in Orlando were twins separated at birth. I was yearning to just stay put. I had had enough of hotels and restaurants
 

Traveling sounds glamorous until you have to do it over and over and over. Especially when you have a family, you want to spend some time at home between the episodes of jet lag. Comfort becomes a much bigger deal, and you want every place to feel like home.
 

You just can't do that in a hotel. Not in a Marriott. Not in a Sheraton. Not in a Hilton.
 

I wish I knew then about two other options.
 

Private Vacation Homes (or rental villas)
 

Private vacation homes, known also as holiday homes or villas are essentially houses that rent on a weekly basis. They are not much help for fly-in meetings. For those, only an airport hotel will do.
 

But if you plan to be in town for the better part of the week, there is nothing like kicking back in your own private home – a rental home, of course.
 

"Hotel rooms are cramped; a villa is spacious with room to walk about. Hotel rooms have a TV and desk in the bedroom; a villa has surround sound TV and stereo with comfortable couches and chairs in various parts of the home. A hotel has a public pool; a villa has a private pool," says Florida villas rental agent Stewart Granville. "It's private. It's comfortable. It's like a home away from home."
 

Mr. Granville notes that a vacation home rental also serves as an office away from home, with one room dedicated to the office. "In a villa, you don't have to sit on your bed when you type those memos. And what a great way to entertain business contacts."
 

Mr. Granville specializes in villas in America's vacation heartland: Orlando, Florida. Business travelers often bring their family along to enjoy Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and other famous theme parks. The family plays while the business traveler works. When the meetings are over, they all head for Disney together, perhaps for another week. With family in tow, a private rental home makes much more sense than a crowded hotel room.
 

Bed and Breakfasts
Bed and Breakfasts are also an option. Although they do not offer the same privacy and space as villas, they are warmer and more homey than a hotel. And like a hotel, they rent by the night, not by the week.
Is a bed and breakfast for you? If a relaxing atmosphere is more important to you than room service, a bed and breakfast is for you, yes. They are comfortable and relaxing, so the business traveler can walk confidently into his meeting free from stress and worries.
Bed and Breakfasts are growing more popular for weekend getaways in the country, but most major urban centers have bed and breakfasts right in the heart of the city...and these are ideal for road-weary business travelers.
So forget about room service and the mint on the pillow. For a stay of several days, the business traveler can rent a spacious, private vacation villa. And for just a night or two, it's a warm and comfortable bed and breakfast.
