More Travel Fun

June 20, 2010

So how’s everybody doing? Sorry for no post on Friday, but I was enjoying my vacation too much to plug into the computer to write. (Not that I don’t, of course, love you dear readers, but I promised myself no work during my one week of vacation and while I love blogging, it felt too much like work before today.) I mean, really, take a look at the photo below and tell me you wouldn’t be out enjoying the quiet of nature instead of staring at a laptop screen:

I thought, though, that I should share a few links that I read while waiting thunderstorms to pass that may be helpful for those of you going to ALA this week.

Don’t you just love Lifehacker? I sure do and this post on the top 10 strategies for surviving airports and airplanes couldn’t have come at a more opportune time than right before ALA. I’m so not looking forward to flying in from the West Coast–jet lag is not fun, but I’m sure the conference will be.

Lifehacker also has a post on 5 tactics for getting sleep on long distance flights. Definitely a fan of getting sleep on planes and these are a few excellent tips.

Finally the Lifehacker pack for Macs. I felt it only right that I include this link as I already linked to the Lifehacker pack for Windows and far be it from me not to alert Mac owners of a cool suite of software.

I hope everyone who is going to ALA has a very safe journey to DC and a fantastic conference experience. I’ll probably post about it as I’m excited for ALA (it’s my first time attending). Have a lovely week, read a lot, and I’ll be back with more library and tech fun soon.

    It’s my first time attending, too! Have you planned out your ALA schedule yet? I hope you have a safe trip and I look forward to reading about your experiences.

      I hope you have a great time at ALA too! I’m not sure about my entire schedule yet, but hopefully will be able to attend some informative sessions and have some fun.
