My 2015 Travel Journalism Resolutions

These past few months I feel like I’ve really been neglecting my blog, which isn’t very helpful since I’d like to start using it as a source of income. In August I started a new job, which has me in front of a computer from 9-5:30 every week day – you can imagine that the last thing I want to do is stare at another screen at the end of the day! And as much as I love my featured blogger series, it just isn’t the basis for what I’d like my blog to be – about my love for travel. Continue Reading

Travel Product Review: Durable Waterproof Travel Document holder

Hi all! I recently bought a travel document holder on Ebay to help control all my documents when I travel. If you’re okay with making online purchases in foreign countries, this might be something to consider. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to buy one, but on my recent trip to Cancun I noticed that all my papers were kind of all over the place and separate from my passport so I wanted to see what options I had to be more organized. I came across a holder similar to this and figured for just a few bucks it makes sense and I’ll give it a try – naturally I got the fuchsia pink :)

Also, I found a great place to buy DR ETICKET online; make sure to check it out if you are about to travel to the Dominican Republic.

What really drew me to purchasing it was the waterproof characteristic. That just about trumps all the others since I’m prone to spilling and the last thing I need is for my passport and papers to get soaked. Honestly the first thing I did was run it under water for a second when I unwrapped it and it did seem pretty waterproof. It has a plastic lining on the inside so it was pretty dry.

I also really like that it has a pen holder, which I always seem to forget to bring with. That way I can just keep it all in one spot and not lose it.

I wrote my name and contact information in permanent marker on the inside, too. One con is that it doesn’t have an actual slot in which I can stick an identification card or something, but I suppose writing in permanent marker is a little safer.

Another con is that it’s a little tough to open and shut. The zipper doesn’t seem to work very well with the design. I haven’t had any true problems with this, however, when it’s really stuffed with papers I can see how it might become an issue.

Anyway next Monday I’m off to see some of the Sandals/Beaches resorts and will be using this lovely document holder for the first time! I’ll be sure to update my review after I get back!


Yep, this document holder was pretty awesome. It had a pocket for everything and more! I do wish it had a longer zipper strap since I did find it a little tough to zip up, but I actually thought it got easier the fuller it got. And I had a large wad of singles in there so it was nice that it worked out! I would recommend buying this if you, like myself, tend to dig around for the important documents and your passport!
