DAMON HYPERSPORT HS
This fully electric motorcycle boasts 200 horsepower, a 200 mph top speed and 200 miles of range, plus a swath of safety features designed to keep you safe on the road. A bike that can get you from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds might sound like a risky proposition, but the Canada-based firm spent years developing a system called CoPilot. It uses cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence to track moving objects around the bike and alert the rider to collision threats using warning lights on the windshield and haptic feedback in the handlebars. $24,995.

Simply place your phone or other items into the pod and wait just five minutes for the UV light to kill 99.99 percent of common surface bacteria. Research suggests the device could also be effective against coronavirus, but the FDA reports insufficient evidence to back the claim thus far. $79.95.

La Concha Hotel Puerto Rico Review

Arriving early afternoon in Puerto Rico, we jumped in an Uber and took a short, 15-minute drive from the airport to La Concha.  As it was Tuesday, the streets were not too busy and the hotel lobby was calm. During the weekend, the scene likely would have been more bustling. We were greeted by a staff member who requested proof of vaccination and government-issued ID, and were given a wristband to indicate we were fully vaccinated. All guests are required to be vaccinated and wear masks at all times while moving around the hotel. Hand sanitizer stations were placed around the lobby, in elevators and in each common area.

Slow Down and Unwind in Easy-Going Phuket

It’s not even 9a.m. in the sleepy fishing village of Rawai on Thailand’s famous Phuket Island, but already the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea swarm with local fishermen casting their lines and releasing their nets from the bows of rustic long-tail boats. The scents of lemongrass, incense and sweet pandan leaves season the air as the villagers slowly rise from their beachside bungalows to start their day. In just a few more hours, the fishermen will return with their catches, filling the stalls of the iconic Rawai Seafood Market with buckets of shellfish and displays of fresh filets. Visitors line up each afternoon for the catch of the day, selecting their fish with care before hauling their purchases across the well-worn road to the restaurants opposite the market to have the fish cooked for 100 Thai baht per kilo.
