Relax: The World's First Water for Travelers

RELAX Skywater

Put down the Valium—there’s a new cure on the market for your in-flight fears. The first product by SkyWater, Relax, is calling itself the world’s first water designed specifically for aviophobia. Don’t roll your eyes just yet: the 2.5-ounce, carry-on friendly bottles are formulated to calm nerves and support your immune system with a proprietary mix of passion flower, valerian root, ginseng, and rose hips. New-agey as it sounds, this is a company with a sense of humor: the package promises to soothe symptoms of “Travel Suckiness” including crying babies, touchy-feely TSA agents, and Cell Phone Guy (their words, not ours). And the all-natural, science-backed formula doesn’t come with any side effects, unlike the anti-anxiety pills it aims to replace.

Relax is currently available exclusively at Amazon, where you can order packs of two or twelve.

Travel to Cuba: What You Need to Know


It’s happening, people. Travel to Cuba just got as little easier, thanks to a new set of regulations that take effect today and expand on President Obama’s recent policy changes.

The Department of Treasury dropped the amended regulations on the lap of tour operators and others with a stake in travel to Cuba yesterday morning. Just how quickly these changes can and will be implemented remains foggy—as do some of the particulars, which will likely be hashed out in the coming days and weeks. So watch this space.

New FAA Rule Goes Into Effect for Flying With Musical Instruments


Last summer, classical trio renegades Time For Three visited T+L's offices for an impromptu concerto, telling us about their musical inspirations and travel challenges—among them, a fairly well-publicized run-in with a TSA agent hell bent on gate checking the group's vintage Stradivarius.
