*Suffering from constipation during your travels?  Chew gum.  Nauseous?  Eat ginger.  (via NY Times)

*Run, fetch, poop, sleep:  It’s a dog’s life!  Fido deserves a vacation too.  (via Out Traveler)

*Stay ahead of the curve–quite literally–at this year’s best up-and-coming hotels.  (via Travel & Leisure)

*Americans eager to travel to Cuba may have to wait a little longer as the U.S. puts the breaks on “people to people” licenses.  (via USA Today)
