Spring has sprung and I'm constantly overhearing conversations about travel plans...maybe that's just selective hearing. One common theme has been long lines at airport security over spring break. Travelers rave about TSA Precheck to skip those horrid lines, but I can't help but interrupt with an even better option. Here's to happy, stress-free travels!

Travel. Eat. Repeat.

What's Better Than TSA Precheck?
 

TSA Precheck, they say. Skip the lines, they say. $85, they say. WAIT - $85?!

In a confusing exchange between programs through the US Customs & Border Patrol and Canadian Customs & Border Patrol, it turns out the best option is to apply for NEXUS which is less expensive and which automatically enrolls you in Global Entry and TSA Precheck.

Nexus is essentially Canada's equivalent to Global Entry and with it you receive expedited processing when entering the USA and Canada, in addition to TSA Precheck privileges. All for $50. 

View the Department of Homeland Security's chart below which details the differences between the programs.

5 Fast Facts about Orangutans

Recently there has been growing concern about the conservation of orangutans which are on the endangered species list. 
  1. In the wild orangutans are mostly solitary unlike other primates.
  2. Almost every night orangutans build a new nest from branches, usually 15 to 100 feet up in a tree.
  3. Babies will sometimes be carried by their mothers until they are 5 years old and breast-feed until they are 8 years old.
  4. Orangutans in the wild are now only found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra (the countries of Malaysia & Indonesia).
  5. Orangutans are the largest tree-dwelling animals on Earth, sometimes reaching 140kg (about 300lbs) or more.
To see these great apes in person join us on a trip to Malaysia where you will visit the island of Borneo and the Sepilok Rehabilitation Center in addition to opportunities to see them in the wild in the rain forest.
