Welcome to “Stuff You Should Know About” – a monthly collection of travel news, tips, photos, and other odds and ends that don’t really fit in anywhere else but that I still really want to share with you.

Random travel news

Shanghai's Disneyland – the first amusement park of its kind on mainland China – officially opened its gates on June 16. Which means all you Disney fans have one more must-visit park to add to your list!

You should pack this

Each month, I’ll feature one or two of my packing must-haves. This month, I’m recommending:

No matter where or how you're traveling the world, having combination locks handy is never a bad idea. Throughout the years, I've used locks like this to secure lockers in hostel dorm rooms, lock up my bag on long train rides or when leaving it at hotels, and most recently used them to lock my locker on an overland truck in Africa.

I like combination locks best because you don't have to keep track of a tiny key, and I especially like with a cable instead of a rigid loop because it almost guarantees that your lock will fit on anything. The cable kind are also less likely to break!

What I’m planning right now

Because my blog runs a little bit behind of what I’m currently doing, I figured I would use this monthly update to let you know what I’m up to, and what adventures are coming up next! (You can also find more detailed info in .)

Coming up:

After the last 5 weeks spent in Africa, I actually don't have much upcoming travel planned! So far, the only confirmed trip is a long weekend in Seattle with Elliot in July to visit some friends. I will undoubtedly have more plans soon, though – Nicaragua, NYC, and a return trip to the UK are most likely going to be put on the calendar for later this summer/this fall!

Is there anywhere you'd love to see/read more about later this year? I'm definitely open to suggestions!

That’s it for this month’s edition of “Stuff You Should Know About!” Which section was your favorite this month?
