Kiva is the world’s first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs around the globe.

- Three new travel gadgets to get you going to your destination. Getting through airport security is still a necessary hassle. That’s not to say it can’t be less of a hassle. I looked at how the the scanner bag, portable scales, and Space Bags TO GO help speed you through airport check-in and security.

I think travelers love memorabilias, and the best memorabilia for me is an artwork which represents the beautiful place I’ve been in. Something timeless and I can share with my loved ones. Hand blown glass figurines and oil paintings from a local are the best gift ideas for a traveler. You can find those when you go to street galleries, in the local art shops, or online like in eBay and Glasslilies.
