 my challenge, in this era of package tours and homogenized vacations, was to discover if traveling through the French Alps, on and off the hills, still delivers a distinctive enough experience to merit the long trip, even late in the ski season. A good deal on a weeklong package tour, including hotel, lift tickets, rentals and two meals a day, can be found for under $1,000 - surprisingly reasonable for an area often considered to be solely the domain of lavish jet-setters.
Karma Portable HotspotWhen travelers reach a destination, their first question is not, "Can I drink the water?" but rather, "Where can I connect to Wi-Fi?" The Karma mobile hotspot device gives users high-speed access to a 4G network, with 1GB of data included.
The clever twist is that each time a person joins your open Karma network, you're rewarded with an additional 100MB of data to your plan, a "karmic" reward for sharing your bandwidth (and promoting their product).
The coverage area is currently only domestic metro areas, which overlaps with nearly ubiquitous free Wi-Fi networks.
 due to security paranoia, there's a hesitation for others to join your network and help you accumulate extra data.
Not only can you look up a flight without its number and get instant information about its arrival or departure and gate or terminal status, but you can also set alerts for real-time flight information.
Track the flight's progress on a map or send updates to your phone, e-mail inbox and more.
There's a lot of airline, airport and seat-map info at your fingertips, but it's the flight board and advanced notice of delays and changes that will make this one of your favorite travel apps.
Whether you view them as benevolent protectors meant to aid us ("Danger, Will Robinson!"), mechanical servants created to handle menial tasks (the Jetsons' maid, Rosie), or ultimately our undoing (the maniacal beings who wage war on humankind in "Terminator"), robots are undeniably compelling. Decorated with robots from the private collection of the owners, the bakery walls are an exhibition of robot artwork, soft and spongy robots, comic books about robots, toy robots alongside their original packaging, lunch boxes and more.
Visitors who don't have boats to watch the action up close can take to the Crow's Nest and Johnny's Harborside restaurants and catch the action over dinner or a glass of wine, or just hang out at the harbor.
For cheese lovers, California's Artisan Cheese Festival in Petaluma is the big one - a weekend of farm tours, seminars, cooking demonstrations, expert panel discussions and, naturally, tasting the finest artisan and farmstead cheese.

"An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered."
