    I recognize the issue. I noticed I didn’t enjoy a trip as much when I was just thinking about the content I needed to create about the place. Instead of enjoying the experience it became a hunt for the best photo spots and letting the food get cold while I’m trying to get the perfect shot. So, these days I put holidaying ahead of the content. The content will be better anyway if I have an actual idea of where I’ve been.

      I definitely agree, Teresa!

    These are great tips, Kiersten! On my first long-term trip, I planned 65 days of travel the same way I used to plan a 2-week getaway and learned about travel burnout the hard way. I didn’t realize that not leaving room for self-care and rest days would end up being just as stressful as my full-time job. Oops! Now I definitely try really hard to go slower and give myself time. I’ll implement these tips on my next travel leg!

      Thanks for sharing, Ioana! You don’t really realize that it can happen until it hits…but man, the worst!


Meet @reserveps — the best kept secret at LAX! ✈️
PS is located in a private terminal at LAX with luxury suites with white glove service before and after your flight.

Concierge will check your bags with the airline and bring you caviar and champagne to enjoy while you wait.

I recommend arriving 3 hours before your flight so you have time to enjoy everything included in your booking—like chef-prepared meals, craft-cocktails, and spa treatments.

Before you head to your flight, you can fill a to-go box from the snack bar.

You’ll be escorted through their private security screening and chauffeured directly to your aircraft!

Now for the details…

Think of this like a Soho House membership for frequent flyers.

To have a private, line-free TSA screening, dedicated customs and immigration services on arrival, and expert drivers trained on the airfield to take guests directly to their aircrafts at one of the world’s busiest airports is a luxury you literally cannot buy anywhere else!

You can sign up for an annual membership for discounted rates on their private suites or salon (perfect for solo travelers). Or you can book on a per-use basis.

Visit their page for more information on pricing and the service!
