Jenny Truong's insight:

This month has not been a good month for travelers when it comes to fees. First, West Jet announced they were introducing a first checked baggage fee. Then Air Canada Followed suit with their own announcement. And now Spirit Airlines...who's next?

JetBlue is one of the few non-chartered airlines that still has their free first checked baggage.

We Wish We'd Thought Of This Genius Transparent Kayak | Travel News Travel Tips | Scoop.it
There are plenty expensive gadgets and gizmos we'd like to buy for our next traveling adventure, but sometimes it's just not in the budge.

Jenny Truong's insight:

Clear Blue Hawaii has designed a clear bottom transparent sea kayak called the 'Molokini'. This would be great to see what's below without having to snorkel or get out of the kayak. However, many people have commented that  the clear transparent bottom would quickly become less clear after several scratches from rocks. The Clear Blue Hawaii website does address the strength of the material, but not about the resistance to scratching. Has anyone tried or purchased one? Would be great to hear first person test results.
