Demi Hugger on the Move—Best Travel Item 2020 and Four-State Media Tour

The Demi Hugger travel aid is receiving some much-deserved recognition, having been recently featured in the “Best Travel Items for 2020 & Holiday Gifts for Travelers” for the “52 Perfect Days” blog as a result of their participation in the 2019 Travel Goods Show.

Demi Hugger is proud to announce a four-state media tour beginning on March 7, 2020, which will include TV and radio spots on major networks: ABC Detroit, Michigan, on WXYZ and WMYD Weekend Morning News; FOX Baltimore, MD, on FOX 45 Morning News; NBC Nashville, Tennessee, on WSMV “Today in Nashville”; CW Network, Indianapolis, Indiana, on WISH-TV “Indy Style”; and FOX Grand Rapids, Michigan, on the Fox17 Morning Mix.

The product’s inventor, Greek-American Demetra Papas, said she is “happy that many more people will hear about my helpful and easy-to-use travel aid.”

The Demi Hugger is a soft, lightweight, stretchable strap that attaches to a suitcase handle and then securely hugs items like coats, pillows, and tote bags. With the Demi Hugger, people can move easily through airports and train terminals knowing all their items are held securely in place.

A family-owned business, the Demi Hugger is the result of searching for and designing a product that would ultimately solve the family’s travel problems. When traveling there was always trouble carrying a heavy shoulder bag containing necessities like makeup, wallet, ticket, passport, medications, snacks, and wet naps while wheeling luggage. The bag would inevitably slip off and spill on the ground.

Demetra observed that many others were experiencing the same problem with items like backpacks, pillows, blankets, shopping bags, and baby bags. After experimenting with several combinations of fabrics and designs, and consulting with travelers and manufacturers, she designed a practical and simple luggage strap with tremendous flexibility. The Demi Hugger can support many combinations of luggage and travel articles with ease and comfort.

Fall Back, Ski Forward!

Say Goodbye to Fall and Welcome Winter.

We will miss our wonderful fall weather and activities:

  • Leisurely strolls or cycling down peaceful paths in the crisp autumn air.
  • Watching the leaves change to vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows as we walk, ride, or drive down picturesque roads and paths.
  • Mountain biking on the soon to be ski slopes.
  • Hiking advanced mountain trails or easy hikes to amazing views and waterfalls.

But don’t worry, amazing winter activities are on the way. They’ve already begun out west and in northern New England. Get ready to enjoy winter:

  • Downhill skiing and snowboarding from amazing heights with beautiful views. Advanced skiers will be challenged by black and double-black diamonds, while others will be learning and skiing green slopes.
  • Snowshoeing through beautiful snow-covered wilderness surrounded by glistening
  • Cross-country skiing through pastures, farms, and recreation paths.
  • Sledding or tubing on a favorite hill at ski areas and tubing parks.
  • Ice skating on frozen lakes and public skating rinks, e.g.,
  • the frog pond at the Boston Common is transformed to an outdoor ice-skating rink in winter. There are rentals, a snack bar, and a Voted “The Best Outdoor Skating Rink in the U.S.by USA Today.”
  • Relax with a nice cup of hot cocoa outdoors or inside, while enjoying a view of snow-covered mountains, hills, fields, forests, or your own backyard.

Travel with Less Stress: Holiday Travel Tips

Holiday travel is coming fast upon us and for many—especially those who travel to visit family and friends—it can be very stressful. Besides all the buying of gifts, parties, and dinner plans, travel is a huge concern and only adds to the chaos of the holiday season.

We’d like to share some helpful tips for holiday travel that will make your trip less stressful and more enjoyable.

1) Plan ahead. Book flights early.

Avoid those travel dates that everyone else wants, like those that create a long weekend or have you returning on a Sunday. Shop prices and book ahead—it’s sure to save you money.

Plan ahead for flight delays and avoid tight connections. Book a direct flight if possible.

2) Shop around for hotel rates.

If you’re not staying at a relative’s or friend’s home, shop around for hotel rates. Use Expedia or Orbitz to find good rates. This is important, especially in big cities where hotels fill up fast at holiday times.

3) Pack sparingly.

If you’re only going away for a few days and there will be laundry facilities available, just bring enough clothing for a couple days. Wear the same outfit when you leave as when you arrived. Then it’s really only toiletries and under garments left to pack.

Mail gifts ahead rather than taking them on the plane. This saves time and effort—and probably money—as most airlines now charge for checked baggage.  If you can survive with just a carry-on bag, do it and avoid waiting at baggage claim.

Also be aware of the TSA rules regarding liquids, etc. and avoid delays in that department.

4) Provide yourself some creature comforts.

Bring along a good book, a snack, a light sweater or shawl should you get chilly, a travel pillow, headphones and your favorite music, even ear plugs. A comfortable traveler is a happy traveler.

 And Don’t Forget—Make Travel Easy with Demi Hugger!

Don’t struggle with balancing bags, laptops, briefcases, coats, pillows, and more atop your luggage. The Demi Hugger is a soft, stretchable strap that easily attaches to the handle of your suitcase and securely hugs these items, freeing your hands and making travel a cinch.

Best of all, the Demi Hugger is lightweight, soft, and removable, can be used both vertically and horizontally and works without metal or hard plastic hooks and clamps.

Three Best Travel Products that I Don’t Travel Without

  1. Travel Cubes.

Travel cubes fit nicely in my carry-on suitcase

http://amzn.to/2rHWUUa  I love travel cubes because they allow me to plan ahead and pack some essentials. This is not easy for me as I tend to do things the last minute. I have been using Eagle Creek size medium for several years and they still look new.I pack my essentials like undergarments, pajamas, allergy pillow cover, and toiletries  a week ahead in one cube. Beachwear, towel, and sunscreen for warm weather in another. For colder weather gloves, thermals, sweater and jacket( unless I wear it during travel)  A few days ahead I roll my shirts for easy viewing in another cube. I usually try to pack dresses and pants as flat as possible on top of the cubes to avoid wrinkling.

When I arrive at my destination I hang up the dresses and pants. I place the packing cubes in drawers without the need to take everything out. It keeps my things clean and organized.

2)The Demi Hugger.    http://amzn.to/2rIbXNw  It allows me to carry additional items on my rolling suitcase. I usually use a large bag or purse to hold things I can not be without: medications, large scarf if the plane gets cold, change of cloths, snacks, cell phone, and tablet. I can usually use a small carry-on suitcase with my large bag (that fits under the seat) secured on top with the Demi Hugger, eliminating the need to check luggage which saves me time and money. Oops! I almost forgot to tell you that I fold or roll my Demi Hugger and use it as a back or neck rest when flying.

3) Sanitizing Hand Wipes and Disinfectant Wipes.I wipe the tray table on the plane and remote control and light switches at the hotel. Studies have shown the remote and light switches to be the dirtiest things in a hotel room.

Hidden Gem in the Adirondack Region of NY

 

 

The Big Moose Inn is a hidden gem. Make sure to look for the sign on the opposite side of the road, easy to miss. It is a simple,quaint, cozy and nicely furnished Inn with a Restaurant, Tavern, and great waterfront location. Unfortunately for us the Tavern and Restaurant were not yet open on weekdays, the menu sure looked good. Luckily were able to experience the Continental breakfast. No, it was not cereal, packaged crescent rolls, and donuts.

The best continental breakfast I have ever had. I was pleasantly surprised with the included Continental Breakfast. No, it was not cereal, packaged crescent rolls and donuts. You had a choice of homemade muffins, coffee cake and granola. Yogurt, berries, hard boiled eggs, cereal, toast, English muffins coffee tea or juice were all available. They were pleasantly served by the owner, Susan Mayer. Yes, you could get them all.

We enjoyed the beautiful view from our room and restaurant. Although the weather was a bit dreary we even went kayaking on the lake. The room was appropriately furnished with a lovely stained glass window.

Hosts Mark and Susan Mayer were pleasant and accommodating. We enjoyed our informative conversations where we learned a lot about the area. If the weather had been better it would have been an outstanding two day get away. It was a pleasant experience in spite of the weather. Great mini  vacation.

I would definitely recommend The Big Moose Inn.  www.bigmooseinn.com
