Work-friendly style, intuitive access and organization, and comfy commute-ready carry? Our Best Work Backpack 2021 puts in the hard graft to make it happen…
Creating a great work backpack requires careful consideration. It needs to look clean and formal enough for work environments, while carrying everything you need for day-to-day work tasks and keeping those items accessible throughout the day. Enter the Transit Workpack.
A welcome addition to their extremely popular Transit Line, and a pack specifically designed to nail work life down to the finest details.
Bellroy excels here with a balance between minimalist aesthetics and everyday utility. And while the exterior is clean and work-friendly, Bellroy still keeps it innovative with their recycled Baida nylon which offers an attractively textured and water-resistant finish.
When it comes to organizing your work gear, you’re well covered. A choice of top, front and side quick-access pockets keep small essentials secure but close at hand if needed. Inside the main compartment you’ll find a zippered pocket and large stretch pocket, while a separate padded laptop compartment stores your tech.
A contoured back panel and padded shoulder straps keep loads comfy during commutes or strolling to after-work pursuits. And the versatile nature of this bag lends itself to a variety of uses outside of work, such as trips to the gym, a quick grocery shop, or even an overnight trip.
The Transit Workpack delivers all of the essential elements of a work bag at the highest level, and delivers them in an understated and multifunctional design, effortlessly transitioning from work to play and back again. Congratulations, Bellroy!
These are the pieces that just missed out, and in most cases, by the smallest of margins. To them, we award a High Commendation. The below were of outstanding quality, displaying fine craftsmanship and design flair. With honor, we bow our heads in the utmost respect and kudos. If this were a dais, they’d be biting their teeth into silver medals, while their flags were hoisted into the horizon – a feat not to be overlooked. And we’re sure they’ll be back, to take it one notch higher, next year.
Heimplanet may have initially made a name for themselves in the tent industry. But their carry line shows their dedication to excelling in every area of design they turn their attention to. The Commuter Pack is a great example of durable, functional, and sleek design done at a world-class level; not to mention with a nod to sustainability too.
The pack is made with Heimplanet’s tough and eco-friendly DYECOSHELL material and offers a range of thoughtful features to help you conquer the workday. The magnetic rolltop closure accommodates a range of changing loads, while additional side access to the main compartment keeps your gear conveniently close at hand. Heimplanet have also carefully considered how to organize your gear. A suspended, padded sleeve stores your tech, while quick-access pockets store items such as a phone, wallet, sunglasses, and more. Durable enough to tackle daily commutes year after year, understated enough to suit a range of work settings and beyond, and flexible enough to accommodate changing loads, this is a solid work companion for many years of trusty service. Fantastic job, Heimplanet!

Built to withstand long-term use, understated and stylish, and offering great organization for your daily essentials, the City Pack X-Pac is a work partner you can trust to get the job done. Bravo, Aer!
23-02-2022 · Across its four different collections, Aer makes a total of ten backpack silhouettes, so it’s safe to say that the brand knows a thing or two about what goes into a quality carry solution. As such, it doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore gym rat or a jet-setting globetrotter – chances are pretty good that Aer makes a pack that’ll work with your lifestyle.
Across its four different collections, Aer makes a total of ten backpack silhouettes, so it’s safe to say that the brand knows a thing or two about what goes into a quality carry solution. As such, it doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore gym rat or a jet-setting globetrotter – chances are pretty good that Aer makes a pack that’ll work with your lifestyle.
But here’s the thing: while bags like the Fit Pack or the Tech Pack can double as your daily carry companion, they’re honestly just a little overbuilt for what most people need. When you’re merely looking for something to get your essentials to the office, you don’t need spacious shoe garages or multiple tech sleeves. For this reason, Aer introduced the City Pack as a much more manageable alternative. In this review, we get hands-on to see how it stacks up to its stablemates.

A Quintessentially Aer Aesthetic
Though there isn’t a whole lot of branding to be found around the outside of the City Pack, it’s still readily recognizable as an Aer original. In fact, in many ways, the bag is even more “Aer-ey” than some of the brand’s other offerings. Between the simple, uncluttered face and the beefy YKK zips, the City Pack is strikingly minimalist in a way that reaffirms Aer’s trademark aesthetic.
This is also partly due to the bag’s relatively compact design. Clocking in at 18” long by 12” wide by 5” deep, it’s just the right size for bringing along your carry without being burdensome to wear. Admittedly, the City Pack is a bit conservative insofar as its total storage capacity is limited to just 14L. But that’s because it’s designed to haul your daily necessities – things like computers, notebooks, and office supplies – not double as your weekend getaway bag.
Nevertheless, any self-respecting EDC backpack should be able to take a beating, so Aer has built the City Pack with only the most premium of materials. Like other bags in the brand’s catalog, the outside is made from 1680D Cordura ballistic nylon. Along with giving the City Pack an understated look, this also means that it’ll stand up to many a daily commute. In fact, we’ve been putting our City Pack through its paces for a while now, and – as of yet – it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
Around the rest of the bag, you’ll find the usual mix of oversized YKK zipper pulls and chunky Duraflex hardware. On the front, there’s a waterproof AquaGuard closure for extra element protection, bordered by a pair of handy pull loops to facilitate smoother operation. At the top of the bag, Aer has fitted a smaller locking zipper and a soft padded pocket for keeping your more critical carry secure. Above the water bottle holder and at the front of the shoulder strap, there’s a set of D-rings for attaching carabiners and other accessories. Of course, being an Aer backpack, there has to be a magnetic fastener on the bag somewhere; in this case, it features on the removable sternum strap. These days, such buckles are pretty commonplace, but we love them in applications where traditional designs might lead to pinching.
As is the case with many bags on the market, Aer has outfitted the City Pack with an integrated luggage pass-through. Simply slip it over the handle and slide it down to mount on your roller bag. When combined with a pair of padded, seatbelt-style handles – one at the top and one to the side – the result is a pack that’s incredibly easy to grab and get going.
Pocketable Provisions Aplenty
Unzip the City Pack, and you’re immediately struck by just how well Aer has managed to fill the bag with storage options. Inside the main zippered compartment, you’ll find a laptop pocket that comes with room for up to a 16” MacBook Pro. Lined with a soft woven material and suspended above the ground with a false bottom, it offers plenty of padding to protect your device from drops and bumps. Below, there’s a stretchy divider for stashing things like tablets, notebooks, and even magazines should you feel so inclined. Even with these items, the compartment offers more than enough room to stuff a small organizer and a light jacket. The most innovative feature, however, has to be the hidden tracker sleeve. Capable of fitting an Apple AirTag or a Tile tracking device, it allows you to keep tabs on your City Pack should it ever go missing.
And the organizational amenities don’t end there; within the secondary compartment, the City Pack is abounding with pockets. At the bottom, it comes with a pair of elasticated pouches that are perfect for holding bulky items like hard drives. Adjacent, you’ll find a series of stretchy dividers for notebooks and pens, as well as a mesh pocket for holding things such as charging banks and smaller cables.
As if that were not enough, the City Pack comes with a small pocket out front. Secured with a YKK AquaGuard zipper and built with an integrated lanyard clip, it offers a quick and convenient way to access those items you may need at a moment’s notice – like keys, for instance. Add to that a secure soft-lined top pocket – great for easily damaged items like phones and sunglasses – and you’ve got a pack that offers everything you need to take control of your carry. We could fill the bag with everything we’d require for a day out, and it would still have plenty of pockets to spare.
Along with being exceptional organizational pieces, Aer’s packs are also super comfortable to wear – and the City Pack is certainly no exception. This is because the bag features a unique contoured back panel that’s designed to curve with your shoulders for a more ergonomic fit. Where other backpacks tend to hang away from your body and bounce against your lower back, the City Pack instead stays firmly in place, hugging your torso. And, because it comes with some vented mesh panels, it’s still plenty breathable.
Strap-wise, the City Pack sports some of the most generous padding you’ll find – especially for a bag of this size. Made from a combination of 1680D Cordura and plushy vented mesh, they come with beefy Duraflex buckles and durable nylon webbing. Accordingly, it takes just a quick tug on each strap to have the bag adjusted. As an added bonus, they’re built with a pair of elasticated length keepers, allowing you to manage the excess in a way that ensures the bag doesn’t become a tangled, flappy mess.
Aer launched the City Collection in order to round out its catalog with some streamlined, urban-ready alternatives to its larger, more feature-full bags. Having spent a good deal of time with the City Pack, we’ll be the first to tell you: the brand has definitely succeeded in its directive. Granted, the bag does fill out a tad smaller than some of the competition; however, it’s leaps and bounds ahead of the pack when it comes to things like build quality, organization, and on-body comfort. Between the tough Cordura construction, the dependable Duraflex hardware, and the comfortable shoulder straps, the City Pack is a bag that you’ll want to reach for day after day.
If you’re not quite sold on the City Pack, stay calm — there are plenty of other worthwhile bag options to consider. Just be sure to check out our guide to the best everyday carry backpacks for our expansive, 25-pack-strong roundup.

Carry & Comfort
The back panel is pretty flat and structured, but the small angling at the top makes it comfortable on the shoulders. It is a relatively short bag, so it sits high enough on the back to be comfortable even without any lumbar curve.
The shoulder straps have thick foam padding and an adjustable sternum strap with magnetic hardware that will make long commutes a bit easier on the shoulders. The shaping of the shoulder straps, along with the angled gusset at the top of the back panel made this a really good fit for me. I am on the shorter side, 5’5″, so it might not fit so well on someone much taller.
The top handle is a nice tubular webbing with a foam insert. They’ve also added a second handle to the side of the bag which makes it easier to manage when it isn’t on your back.
Space & Access
From the outside, you have access to the bottle pocket on the side of the pack and two smaller pockets; one on the front of the bag, and a padded and plush-lined pocket on the top of the bag – perfect for small tech or sunglasses.
The smaller of the main compartments has a document slip pocket as well as several other small slip and zip pockets that are great for tech accessories and chargers. With most backpacks, I usually carry a cable/tech case that has all my charging bricks and cables. But there really isn’t any need with the Aer City Pack. I was able to neatly store the chargers and accessories for my phone, tablet, and laptop in this one section of the bag so that they were easy to access when I needed them.
Access to the main compartment is interesting. Due to the bottle pocket on one side, Aer has made the height of the zipper ends asymmetrical. This means that the front of the bag folds down at an angle, but you still get good access. The main compartment has a padded laptop sleeve (fits up to 16″ laptop) and a non-padded tablet sleeve, as well as two other medium-sized slip pockets. This section is rather small, but I was able to fit my large, over-ear headphones and a small rain jacket in with my laptop and tablet. Also, hidden behind the hanging pocket there is a very small slip pocket. This is meant for holding tracking devices like AirTags and Tiles.

Guests at the property can choose to stay in the Castle, the Lodge, the Old Stable Mews, or the Village Cottages.

Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort sets itself apart from the other castle hotels in Ireland that we’ve mentioned thus far as it sits on its own private island. This 310-acre resort is ten minutes from Waterford City and a short 90-minute drive from the Dublin Airport. Additionally, the resort’s private car ferry runs every 15 minutes and only takes four minutes to cross.
Guests can choose to stay in one of the 19 bedrooms inside the 16th-century castle or one of the 45 island lodges, perfect for groups and families. Moreover, the private island offers family-friendly activities such as golf, croquet, tennis, picnics, etc. The resort’s scenic trails, where you can attempt to spot native wildlife and country fauna, are particularly beautiful.

Apart from being the only castle hotel in Co. Kerry, Ballyseede Castle is also thought to be haunted! Don’t worry, though–the resident ghost, Hilda Blennerhassett, is friendly. She’s typically spotted near the upper floor bedrooms of the castle and the main staircase.
Markree Castle (Co. Sligo)

Markree Castle is located in northwest Ireland, in County Sligo, a region best known for its beautiful beaches. It also sits along the route of the world-renowned Wild Atlantic Way. The current structure was first built in the 17th century as the ancestral seat of the Cooper family.

Every beauty lover knows that organization is key. A tidy beauty stash undoubtedly makes for a great IG post or ASMR TikTok, but more importantly, it also helps keep your makeup or skin-care routine as streamlined as possible. “Your kit should allow you to sift through your products seamlessly and allow you to work efficiently without the need to dig,” says celebrity makeup artist and L’Oreal Paris U.S. Creative Director Sir John.
Apart from using traditional makeup bags, there are plenty of different ways to store makeup that don’t involve going bigger in size. Today’s organizational tools include tons of handy dividers and innovative space-saving designs to keep your makeup routine as easy as possible.
The different types of makeup organizers
Depending on your budget, how much space you have and how much product you use, there are plenty of different makeup organizers you can choose from. They include:
- Drawer orgaziers
- Organizer boxes
- Travel bags
- Countertop containers
- Makeup cases
- Rotating organizers
- Clear organizers
- Hanging /over-the-door organizers
A good makeup organizer will mean something different for everyone. “It’s attuned to your artistry and working style,” says Sir John. He’s a big fan of labeling and color-coding products. If your makeup collection is on the more minimal side, he suggests decanting larger products into smaller containers and opting for multi-use products to save even more space.
According to celebrity makeup artist and founder of Blighlighter Jamie Greeneberg, “a good makeup organizer comes with a variety of different components and sizes,” she says.
Things to consider before buying a makeup organizer
“Before buying a makeup organizer, think about what you’re wanting to organize,” Greenberg says. If you mostly have lipsticks and pencils, she recommends looking for small square structures. Small products, she explains, fit easily into these types of organizers and provide easy access for you. If you have to organize bigger items, she recommends looking for something with more space and less structure, so you can organize products easily.
Greenberg also suggests thinking about the quality of a makeup organizer before purchasing. “If it feels cheap, odds are it will crack or break too easily,” she says.
Ahead, Sir John, Greenberg and makeup artist and CTZN Cosmetics co-founder Naseeha Khan break down the best makeup organizers on the market. See their picks, as well as some of our own, below.

Welcome to the latest update of Travel Town! We’ve been improving the game and addressed bugs for you. Watch out for some festive seasonal offers in our store. Have fun!
I really love this game. Usually I’m bored to death by the plot lines in games but I love the conversations and the little people and always want to read more. The matching game is a good balance of thought, luck, and persistence. But I completely agree with the reviewer who says the game peters out after level 41. I’ve limped along to level 47 hoping it would pick up again, but I’m about to give up. I’ve only got 3 goals at a time, and they’re all for items that take a really long time to recharge, so I check in, tap the items a few times, and that’s pretty much all that’s worth doing. Sometimes I make a bunch of seashells and sell them but you really don’t get much money for that. When I fulfill a goal I get another, but it’s the same situation. One of my goals is for a level 2 key, and I’ve only gotten 1 key ever so I just keep waiting. Maybe I’ll check back in a few months and see if it’s recovered.
First off, I do really enjoy this game, and I don’t mind the new update too much. Even though we had to start over, you gave us all our diamonds back, and it was kind of nice to start with a fresh board again. HOWEVER, you said it was to give smoother progresss for everyone and less instances of getting stuck and that’s NOT what’s happening for me. I’m at level 16 and progress has pretty much halted completely. Tasks that offer supplies as rewards are not often enough to continue upgrading the buildings so I have 3 buildings just sitting there waiting for me to get more cement mixers, brick walls, and boxes of nails. So progress has almost completely stopped for me and I am unable to play the game as intended. I get what you were trying to do but you need another update to accomplish it. Right now I am just disappointed and frustrated. (Side note, the amount you get for selling high level items is ridiculous. For example, the large bacota sandwich is level 13, but when you sell it you only get 12 back, which is borderline insulting! You get 1 for the mix of olives that is level 2 in the same category so we should be getting A LOT more back for the sandwich considering it takes 2,048 olives to create it…just something to think about as this is always something about your game that has always rubbed me the wrong way.)
When I first started playing it, my thought was finally a merge-game I really like. There were a bunch of goals to complete. A nice flow of energy to play with – the items were cute. I really liked the “board” concept. Well, I made it to level 13 and suddenly the pace just stopped. I have only 2 goals to complete. One is an artifact fish that people on the FB page tell me they had to reach a much higher level to ever achieve it. The other goal is a picture portrait and the backpack to make cameras and then the cameras themselves take forever to recharge. So I am at a standstill – I typically stop playing these energy-based games for this reason because I always run out of energy in a matter of minutes. Now I have energy, but no reason to use it until my backpack charges. Tapping my foot wondering when the game will get fun again. Next day playing the game – waiting for the boat to recharge is taking forever – recharge times will definitely kill this game for me. Ending on a positive note – I really enjoyed the special safari event with the tigers – that’s about how long it should take for items to recharge, IMHO. After several weeks of opening this game to play it, things have only gotten worst with the recharge times. It’s taking days to weeks to complete a single task. Never got to play the special safari event again, the one thing about the game I liked, so made this game a one star, at best.
Hello developers. Getting straight to the point. Either the recharge time needs to be lowered or give more opportunities to gain blue gems to buy energy. The shop is useless to me because i never have blue gems to spend. Why cant things in the shop be bought with smileys instead? Certain orders take entirely too long to fulfill. This drives you to have to try to merge other items in the meantime which quickly fills the board with items you cant sell because theyre needed. With each source at least give enough items to make half the order. Also when leveling up the energy level should rise. 100 is not alot of energy when your whole top row is a source object. The seashells and silverware takes forever! In closing, dont take this as a negative review. Love the game and latest update. Not asking for a simplified game but more of a balance. I play daily every chance i get. But make it worth my effort . I shouldnt be merging for weeks to get one high level food item. Its pointless to use the whole 100 energy to try and get one high leveled food item thats still not completed after using the next 100 after waiting on a recharge. Work with me please. Im level 24 and only have 4 areas unlocked. Come on!
Update: I was trying to give the benefit of the doubt, but I can’t waste my time anymore. I can’t get the items I need to level up and the rest of the time it takes me forever to get the items to get tool chests. This isn’t fun anymore it’s become like a job. Thanks for the pointless updates that don’t help. The other day I finally complete a task that gave me 6 large toolboxes….I still wasn’t able to update any of the 5 outstanding buildings I have. I’m done. I loved this game. However I don’t think I can continue. I play the challenges to get toolboxes and meet the daily goal every day. Yet I still don’t get the parts I need to level up. The algorithm is not fair based on the needs you have. I have a million brick walls and yet zero wallpapers. This needs a better update and with all the tasks I complete I should have another option of leveling up. It’s frustrating to work towards so,etching for so long just to be disappointed. What is the point of an update with new buildings if I can’t even get to the buildings I have!! Also completely blocked from leveling up. I was a beta user and in half the time was a higher level than I am now after the reset. The tool boxes are way too random and don’t give what I need. I’ve been waiting on a plug for at least a month. I’m over this.
I, like many others, had my progress reset with The Update. I thought it was fun at first, there were new resources to get, and it was much easier to get the higher level item spawners compared to before. The idea of having building materials was also interesting. However, they completely nerfed the drop rate of higher level items from the spawners. For example, previously, at a level 7-8 sand bucket, you could occasionally spawn max level sand castles and starfish. Now, you can only spawn level 3 castles and shells, max. Same with the picnic basket, and I imagine every other spawner. The devs claim that this new update will smooth the progression, so you don’t have to be stuck on a level for days. That’s not the case. Orders are MUCH higher level, asking for items at the end of the merge chain, and you have to spend days grinding for orders and building supplies. Do I think this is a ploy to get players to spend more money? Probably. Bad move, devs. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt, so I’ll keep the game until the next update comes out. Maybe this new version just needs to be balanced better. I think the devs should’ve just made a sequel, tbh, instead of resetting long-time players.
I’ve been playing this game for more than a couple of months and really got hooked to it. I like it so much I actually bought energy & gems for this game. I was on Level 51!! I wasn’t even done with all of the unlocking of the buildings. When I updated the newest version June 2021. They put me back to level 1!! Yes you guys gave me a lot of Gems back , but it didn’t last too long & I needed them for energy #newupdate! Why this update?? so this app update has new and exciting different things?? It’s actually harder to level up now. Yes you have new things, but in order to build houses you also Now need more “ ” smiley faces & supplies in the game verse before where only needed game coins. On top Of that you waste more energy with this new upgrade. So after this I’m on level 17 and I’m struggling, it’s not that fun anymore. Sorry to say I lost interest in this game and now will delete. I’m very disappointed & sad this game is no longer my favorite. The makers got too carried away in this update making it harder for us “Gamers” . When I mean harder you have to spend more $$ on gems and energy to level up!! It’s not worth it!! I love Merge games this is app was in my Top 5!! Not anymore!!
First I wanna start off with the fact that suddenly the game won’t load. I had it on the title screen for over 3-4 minutes, probably could have gone longer but I’m tired of wasting my time on this game. Which leads me to stating that even with a little fixing, the balance is still off. 15,000 coins and can’t do anything because I need rarer tools. It’s a bit better since the last update but it’s still SO off. Can’t even get a piece of window. I feel like if you require a certain tool, maybe make the chances of pulling those from the toolboxes higher. It’s a great game, but it needs work. And I gotta give major props to you guys because y’all actually seem to listen to players, but quite a few things still need work. Pushing people to the point of buying gems? That makes me want to avoid giving you guys any money. Plenty of times I’ve thought about it but nah, 1000 gems for a new slot on inventory? Not worth spending a single penny. The more you work with players, the more people will actually want to play and spend money.
Story and game pieces are great. But each building that makes items can only produce a few until it stops and recharges. This is the worst part of the game. I’m on level 42 and the orders can take days of work to fill. Thus it’s really hard to do anything. I’ve got 1200 energy because of the energy crates and I can only use 20 energy a day because all of the buildings lock up. Many don’t unlock for 20 minutes. Very frustrating. Someone compared it to Merge Mansion, so I downloaded that one to compare. It works so much better. The game play is way better and it’s almost identical to travel town. More review……some buildings never get orders so they just sit. If you want to use your energy to make stuff randomly your board gets full and you need to sell stuff for very few coins. Items that took you days to make are sold for almost nothing. If your lucky and can fill an order the price paid doesn’t match how long it took you to make it. I’ve had items I’ve made in the beginning that are never ordered. Some orders are for really rare items you never get and the orders just sit. Refreshing the orders would be nice. Like other games there are slots and if you refresh an order you don’t get another for 24hrs. That’s fair. Each item should show a value so you can decide if you want to sell. I’m really hoping an update is in the next week. Or I’ll delete game. I don’t recommend playing. It’s very frustrating.
Let me start by saying that I have played probably 75-80% of the merge games out there and this is in my top 5! With that said, I do agree with what many others said (and it’s like that in a lot of merge games) once you get to the higher levels…it gets a bit boring. The game say there for months for me, I deleted it, and just downloaded it again. They added quite a bit of new stuff, which has made it fun for me again. I will update my review once I get to higher levels again. 🙂 My request for the developer – I have tried my usual fixes for this – my countdowns are not functioning properly. I have a 24 hour chest that has been opening for three days. And my bag to get camera parts has been stuck since yesterday. I’m not sure if anyone else is having this problem. I’m not having the same issue in the event… Also, kudos to the developers for making a great game! Small bugs and good feedback can do wonders everyone! 🙂
Was great before the update I was super far in now it take WAY WAY TO MUCH to upgrade the buildings I did enjoy the new addition when it was an realistic amount of products you need to upgrade but this is insane you went from a game i enjoyed more than any other Merge game and I play a lot to one I almost want to give up on. You went to far with this update, way way to far maybe make it a bit easier to upgrade buildings it shouldn’t take me over a month to upgrade a building and that’s just one portion not the whole building because there like 10 things you have to do to finish the building. I really recommend calming down on the amount of cement, wood wallpaper, and screws it takes upgrade. I wasn’t mad about this update resetting everything and screwing over my progress didn’t even complain but this is insane and is asking to much of the player. I swear this is just a money grab
I had just maxed all the buildings when the update came along and reset everything back to level 1. I was happy to give this game another go from scratch, but quickly got stuck at level 17, for weeks. I went 2 solid weeks without any screws to advance one of the buildings. As upgrading buildings is the only way to advance levels, it was quickly no longer fun. The requirement to spend gems for the daily tool boxes is impossible. The amount if gems given for free to play, is negligible. It makes it seem like a cash grab to force people to buy gems. The only way to get gems free are from level up chests (see concern above on time required to level up,) and from the mystery island, which takes even longer to obtain the rare pieces to create. Even with these you get maybe 20 gems if you are lucky. Very disappointed in this update, and they beed to offer more ways to get toolboxes if they want to “smooth out” the level progression. Past level 15 progress us non-existant.
I’m not a fan of the new UPDATE. It definitely came out of left field! I try to play several times a day which is mostly out of determination and frustration. I am at level 37 and have dwelled there for what seems like a lifetime. Too dramatic? Maybe. Going up the chain to capture the very last dessert spawned my determination and frustration!! Obtaining building materials is akin to watching paint dry. It is insane for a 60 year old Kindergarten teacher to obsess over a game, especially when I am an advocate for much less screen time for children and more active play. I can afford to pay to play when it helps my perspective to enhance the game and have more fun. Spending money on Travel Town does nothing to enhance the game nor make it anymore fun. I just see it as a disguised subscription fee. I sincerely hope the developers will seriously reflect on these reviews. If said developers have any help suggestions, please share. Any and all advice from other players would be most appreciated.
UPDATE: want to update this to say that i can’t even play it now. at all. not sure what the point is of a game that i can’t even open. it was frustrating enough to have to struggle for a while to get it to work but now it doesn’t work at all. opens, loads, crashes, closes. and starts to overheat my phone in the process. i’ll start to say i love this game. it keeps me occupied for a good amount of time and although it’s simple i really do like it. the biggest problem is that it keeps crashing! sometimes i have to close and open it multiple times before i can actually play the game. once it stops crashing it’s usually fine for a good while but it can be really frustrating getting to that point. and it overheats my phone terribly. no other game or app that i have makes my phone overheat like this. i don’t know why. i also wish i could get more energy chests but that may just be because i’m impatient and want to play when i’m in the mood to, not when the game allows me.
This game is more frustrating than fun. I get that the developers’ object is to make money but too many diamonds are needed just to play the game. I am fine paying to play but the diamonds are needed to recharge the items after only a few hits. One must pay multiple times just to play. Otherwise one has to wait 5-20 minutes to recharge after just 30 seconds of playing. Also the sewing kits, maps, and pouches can’t be discarded and take up spots on the board. There are not enough inventory spots & these also cost diamonds. The concept and graphics are good on this game but the game is stacked against the player. I buy items in other games that help me advance & reward me- the in-app purchases in this game only give you a couple of days of play & then you must buy diamonds again or wait to play. Very frustrating. I’m looking for other merge games that are more fair to the player. The developers need to strike a better balance between revenue generation and game satisfaction. Game Over.
I agree with those reviews that are more negative because of frustration with collecting and obtaining goals in the game. After the last big update, it was disappointing to start again from the beginning, and I was going to just delete the game, however I held in there knowing i did get all of the gems and energy back to rebuild the town again. However, it takes WAY too long to acquire the building materials to even begin to set up the village. You guys took the fun out of completing a task and receiving energy and “perks” from the game. It takes days if not weeks to even gather supplies to be “allowed” to build. I am finding myself now spending money on gems, and never earning more than 10 gems at a time with playing the game for long periods of time. I’m really losing interest in this game which I really did love playing. I’m hoping for an update to fix the “bugs” and difficulty obtaining building materials. Otherwise I’m afraid I’ll have to move on……
I have been playing this game for maybe almost a year now and though I love it, there are some frustrating issues. Before the overhaul, I progressed pretty quickly. This time, I feel as though my progress is being held up because I am lever 21 and I have not seen another mysterious letter since I started the updated game weeks ago. I didn’t have this issue before hand and was able to collect the items needed for the island fairly quickly. Now, I’m stuck with a mysterious map with nothing to merge it with. The fossil task has been sitting there for weeks now with no avail. I just don’t get the issue with the lack of letter drops from the bucket. I tap and tap and tap and tap…..nothing. I’m not saying the letter has to drop all the time from the bucket, but this is ridiculous. Do they just stop after a certain level? I really love this game like I said before but wow is that annoying.
They did a major update where they completely redid the game. This was a few months back, everyone’s account got wiped and we got diamonds back we put into the game. We had no warning they were doing this. One of the main reasons they did this was to fix people getting “stuck.” We had to gather up resources which could take irl days to do. They made it worse, I have over 10k of the new “money,” but I don’t have the resources you need on top of the “money” to keep the story going. Before the wipe I almost had all the building completed. Now I don’t even 5 (there was over 30, now they added more.) they destroyed the game and it isn’t fun anymore. I gave it a few months after this new update. I’m stuck worse then before. At least before it took a few days irl. Now it takes WEEKS. Highly disappointed, only reason it had 2 stars is because the storyline is amazing. Everything is horrible and it’s not fun anymore.
First off, What happened to my original review?? Did u delete it? Once again, I can’t play. What is going on? I need stuff for orders I can’t even make! Still, fossils, they’ve been asking me for those for about a 1 1/2 weeks now. Now I need shrimp, lobster, paper / messages, etc…. I can’t even get my daily prize by completing 5 orders because I can’t even make this stuff. For some reason I have a boat and can make snorkels etc but there are no orders for it. I think this game is seriously off by unlocking stuff to early? I can’t upgrade any buildings because I’m not making any money. Selling my stuff for 1 – 5 coins isn’t a help. So, do I stop playing? It’s been like this for a while with asking me for orders I can’t even make! I’m level, I think 18. It’s boring because I have no goals to work toward. I think u need to think about this game, about us leveling but what is unlocking and not unlocking while leveling up. Hmmm now what do I do? Don’t play anymore??
Super rookie of the developers to delete everyone’s progress because they updated some stuff. The many hours everyone spent waiting for items to recharge, the hours many people spent to wait for their energy recharge, the amount of ads people watched to get JUST 25 ENERGY. Whether it might have been beta or not, there are ways to keep progress while cleaning and updating a game. Would not be surprised for you to take people’s money every time you update and we have to start over again. UPDATE: Takes forever to upgrade buildings. We don’t get enough supplies from the toolbox. Trash game to need to start over. ALSO, the amount of diamonds they give us is nowhere near enough to get us back to where we were before the update. Update 2: Orders needs to be refreshed or catered to what we have on our board. I have been doing the same things over and over and still have items I cannot even turn in. It takes up so much room.

03-03-2022 · The White House is coming to the Waldorf. For most of the 20th century, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel was the presidential home away from home in New York. Since opening …
The White House is coming to the Waldorf.
For most of the 20th century, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel was the presidential home away from home in New York. Since opening in 1931 on Park Avenue, the property has hosted every US president from Herbert Hoover to Barack Obama, most as guests and a handful as long-term renters.
Now, the hotel — which is in the midst of a sweeping residential conversion dubbed the Towers of the Waldorf Astoria — is partnering with the White House Historical Association, a nonprofit founded by first lady and frequent Waldorf Astoria guest Jacqueline Kennedy in 1961 to preserve the White House’s history.
The association will create a presidential library in the storied building set to debut next summer.
Exclusively for the enjoyment of condo owners, the irony here is that this is a perk which presidents who stay at the hotel won’t be able to enjoy — at least, not technically.
Just like the rest of the 50,000 square feet of private residential amenities, the handsome library room is being designed by the internationally renowned Jean-Louis Deniot.
Overlooking 49th Street and the Chrysler Building, the space has grey and cream tones with gold finishes. A circular grey- and cream-toned marble table and a long grey couch are the centerpiece to the room while shelves run along the walls.
The five-seat backlit granite bar framed by a geometric mobile chandelier is a key element — but first, to the tomes.
Stewart McLaurin, the president of the White House Historical Association, says that the collection will span more than 500 books and will be continuously updated with new titles.
“We’re not going to be biased to one president and will represent them all,” he said. “We will also have our group’s inventory of books that we have published over the years”
The latter includes ”Designing Camelot: The Kennedy White House Restoration,” detailing the first lady’s renovation of The White House from 1961 to 1963, and reads dedicated to the wine, china and music of the famed mansion.
Other parts of the collection will have biographies of presidents and first ladies from George and Martha Washington to Joe and Jill Biden and histories during their times in office.
“Washington’s Iron Butterfly” is an example. Written by Bess Clements Abell, the social secretary during the Johnson administration, it talks about the state dinners and other glamorous parties she organized. “Forty-two Years in the White House” — written by Ike Hoover, the chief usher of the White House for the aforementioned timespan — will also be included.
Beyond the books, McLaurin says that the library will serve as a mini museum of sorts, with objects on display such as replicas of china used in the White House and bookends that replicate architectural elements of its exterior.
What’s a great read without a cocktail or glass of wine in hand? To that end, the aforementioned bar will serve tipples that presidents have imbibed during their time in office. The lineup will include bloody marys, favored by John F. Kennedy, French wine, a go-to for Thomas Jefferson, and mint juleps, a staple for Teddy Roosevelt. Teetotalers can order a Diet Coke, a favorite of both George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump.
The library will be part of the many attractive amenities offered at the Towers of the Waldorf Astoria — an 82-foot swimming pool in the former Starlight Roof ballroom, a winter garden with a bar and a theater will a live performance stage among the bunch.
Dan Tubb, the senior director of sales for the property, says that the aim of the library is to honor the history of the presidents who have stayed at the Waldorf.
“Many of our buyers even have fond memories of their interactions with them while they were also at the hotel,” he said. “The library is meant to be rich and dramatic — much like the past of the Waldorf itself.”

How would you check your UK passport validity online? And in what instance would you need to check?
It seems a silly question to ask when the expiry dates are well printed on your passport document.
Depending on where your next destination is, the time between today and the expiry date of your passport may not be sufficient.
Since Her Majesty’s Passport Office has made the UK Passport Application process exclusively online, all things related to passport applications or renewals, are available on the internet.
There are no silly questions and being up to date concerning legislation and current processes relating to Her Majesty’s Passport Office operations will only be in your best interest.
Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about checking your UK passport validity online.
Why would I need to check my UK passport validity online?
Although your passport may be valid, the time left before expiry may not be acceptable to your destination country.
This varies according to the country you are visiting and you may be declined access with a valid passport if its expiry is imminent.
How to check if my passport is valid online UK
There are a few ways to check the validity of your passport. The most obvious way, of course, would be to look on the first page of your British Passport. Finding the passport’s expiration date is usually easy. It’s on the data page, which is the first page of most passports. The date of issue and expiration of your passport are both printed on this page, which you can view by scrolling down to find them.
Another way to check (if you don’t have your passport with you) is to go to the UK government website and use their passport checking tool. This tool will tell you if your passport is still valid and when it expires.
Another way to check the validity of your passport is by contacting your nearest British embassy or consulate. They will be able to tell you if your passport is still valid and when it expires.
If you have a valid UK passport, it will be valid for 10 years from the date of issue. Your passport will also be valid for entry into the UK until the expiry date shown on your passport.
If you have a valid passport but it is about to expire, you may be able to renew your passport before it expires. For more information on how to renew your passport, contact us here.
Why do certain countries decline access with a valid UK passport?
It may not make much sense in principle, but the reasoning is well worth exploring. Have you ever felt that the place you’re visiting is just so amazing, you never want to leave? Many people feel that way, except they never do leave and it becomes the concern of the host country.
Some countries require 90 days validity before expiry, while others require at least 6 months.
Airlines too, implement similar policies to prevent possible violation of destination countries’ requirements.
Which countries require three months validity on your passport?
Although EU countries accept three months validity, Her Majesty’s Passport Office recommends that you travel with at least six months remaining.
Here are the countries you can travel to with three months remaining validity on your passport:
- Cyprus (except in the north, where validity required is six months)
- Czech Republic
Which countries require six months validity on your passport?
The requirements of these countries coincide with the recommendation of Her Majesty’s Passport Office and require at least six months validity remaining on your passport.
India is very particular with its requirements. Not only do they require six months validity, but they also require at least two blank pages in your passport as well as that your passport be machine-readable.
Are there countries that allow less than three months validity until expiry?
Yes, there are. The following countries require various validity which is less than those listed above.
- Australia and Barbados require that your Passport be valid for the duration of your stay. So as long as you leave the countries before your expiry date is reached, you may visit these destinations.
- Canada also allows for validity for as long as the duration of your stay, however, immigration control is likely to take much longer if your passport validity is less than six months.
- Japan and Mexico are also quite lenient as long as your passport expiry date is not met before you have left the country.
- The United States allows validity for the duration of your stay, however, your passport must be a biometric passport with a little silver camera symbol on its front. There are a host of other rules and requirements that must be adhered to in the US which is important to check before travelling to the United States.
- New Zealand and South Africa allow 30 days validity from the date of exit and South Africa requires that you have at least two blank pages remaining on your passport.
How soon before my passport expiry may I apply for renewal?
Between six and nine months before expiry is the recommended timeframe in which to apply for a UK Passport renewal. Click here to start your online passport renewal.
No sooner than nine months though, as per the rules set by the British passport office.
If you have missed the cutoff validity for entry into a certain country, you could apply for an emergency travel document that stipulates specific dates of departure and arrival and is only valid for that period.
Check your UK passport validity before it’s too late.
Ensure that you are covered for your trip and that you have sufficient validity remaining on your passport before planning your departure.
There is no better time than now to take a look at your passport and jot a date in your memory.
