Osprey Ozone Luggage
Dragging your stuff along is one of the irritating aspects of travel. But with plenty of lightweight and utilitarian bags on the market, packing your gear doesn’t have to be a pain. The Osprey Ozone line includes carry-on and larger sizes, and all have an aluminum frame and light chassis with large wheels to get you over terrain more rugged than the airport parking lot.
As lake monsters go, Ogopogo is thoroughly Canadian.
It is said to be gentle rather than menacing, happy to cede the limelight to its publicity-conscious cousins and, according to those who’ve encountered it, unfailingly polite.
Still, you never know. So on my quest to find Ogopogo in Lake Okanagan, I armed myself with every advantage the modern tourist industry could provide, from aerial surveillance to an escape system straight out of a James Bond movie.
No need to travel to a misty, brooding Scottish loch for this monster.
Why you went: We went on safari in Tanzania seven years ago and loved it. This year, our son was doing a semester abroad at the University of Cape Town, so it was a great opportunity to visit him and go on safari again for seven days in Botswana and three days in South Africa.
Don’t miss: The Okavango Delta; the landscape is beautiful and the animals seen (lions, elephants, giraffe, hippos, wild dogs, zebras and more) are amazing.
Don’t bother: Staying in one location for fewer than two nights.

Malaysia: A cave so large it could hold 40 Boeing 747s, another roomy enough to house 3 million bats and a 31-mile underground passage along a crystalline river are the semi-hidden gems of Gunung Mulu National Park, a World Heritage site in Sarawak.
