  • #Travel highlighted in  #Superbowl Commercials

    #Travel highlighted in #Superbowl Commercials

    #Travel highlighted in 2015 #Superbowl Commercials. There were three stand-out Superbowl commercials that put travel in the spotlight. Of course, they caught our attention. We love cruising and found the Carnival Cruise Lines super bowl commercial inspiring. It combined beautiful visuals and the words of John F. Kennedy: “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” Then, they invited us to come back to the sea. We accept!

    The Doritos commercial was just downright funny. As frequent travelers, at one time or another, we have all sat next someone who has done one or all of those things.

    Jeep’s super bowl commercial featured the 2015 Jeep Renegade around the world in amazing places, with “This Land is Your Land, this land is my land” rolling acoustically in the background. Anyone ready for a road trip?

    Planning a Portable Party #VZWBuzz

    Until Verizon Wireless sent me an Ultimate Ears Boom bluetooth speaker for review, I never really saw much use for owning one. Though I have an extensive collection of MP3’s on my smartphone, I would only listen using earbuds to spare other passengers from my eclectic taste in music which ranges anywhere from Aerosmith to Frank Sinatra to Willie Nelson. I have a killer stereo system at home and didn’t really see any benefit in using the UE Boom until […]
