Beginning January of 2018, Delta and American Airlines are instituting new regulations that prevent passengers from checking or carrying on most types of “smart luggage." And United Airlines isn’t far behind. For the layman, smart luggage refers to any battery-powered luggage that performs a wide range of high-tech functions, from serving as a mobile charging station to a kind of scooter you can ride around the airport. The U.S. now has only four major airlines, so this is a prett-ay big deal.

Few apps have changed the travel industry in recent years as much as AirBnB. Thanks to the service, it's now easier than ever to explore the world like a local - often at lesser expense than a good hotel in the same area.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when using Airbnb.
I booked an 11 day trip to Morocco. The plan was to meet up with some friends and take on five different cities. The most ambitious part was that I planned to tackle this trip with a mere carry on bag and backpack. I ended up choosing the Briggs & Riley BRX Explore International Wide Body Spinner. The style of the bag was the perfect blend of adventure and leisure travel that I was planning my trip to Morocco.
